British Books Challenge - Link your November Reviews

October Winner:

The October prize was sponsored by Macmillan (but I'll be posting the prize myself) and they offered a signed copy of Come Back to Me by Mila Gray (also known as Sarah Alderson). I'm happy to announce that the lucky winner is:

Congratulations Chrissi! You have 1 week to email me with your address or a new winner will be chosen. Once I have your address I'll get your book in the post for you.

November Prize Pack:

So last weekend I was invited to the Walker offices to have afternoon tea with the fabulous Zoe Marriott. I am a huge fan of Zoe's books so you can imagine how thrilled I was when her lovely editor Annalie offered a WHOLE SET of all 6 of her current releases as a prize pack for the British Books Challenge (books included are: The Night Itself, Darkness Hidden, Shadows on the Moon, he Swan Kingdom, Daughter of the Flames and Frostfire). Zoe even signed all of the books & included some swag from her latest series & Annalie has tucked the pack safely away ready to send to the lucky winner in December!

One winner will be picked at random from the list of valid reviews submitted each month and will be announced in the following month's review link up post. The winners will then have 1 week to contact me to claim their prize or a new winner will be chosen. Obviously the more reviews you enter the greater your chance of winning but it doesn't matter if you only review one book (or even skip a month or two in the challenge!) you'll still be entered for each review you do write. I'm afraid that due to postage costs this month's prize pack will be open for UK participants only, the winners will need to give me permission to pass their address to my contact at Walker for them to send out the prizes.

Important Information:
  1. Please make sure you sign up for the challenge before you start linking your reviews, I will delete links from people who aren't registered. You can sign up HERE if you haven't already.
  2. When you add your link to the Mr. Linky below please make sure you link directly to your review, not just to your blog (invalid links will be deleted)
  3. Books must have been read in 2014 to count towards the challenge so those books you read in December but reviewed in January don't count!
  4. Also, please make sure that the reviews you link are for books written by British Authors - they can be born in Britain (living here or abroad) or they can be adopted British Authors (who were born elsewhere and now live here) but if they don't fit into one of those categories then they don't count. (as above invalid links will be deleted and won't get you an entry into the prize pack). Please note that Britain includes England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, I'm afraid authors from Southern Ireland don't count.
  5. If you need ideas for books by British Authors check out the FAQ page for lots of suggestions. You don't have to choose books from these lists though - they are just to give you ideas if you need help!
Link Your Reviews:

Now for the important part, make sure you link all of your reviews using the Mr. Linky form below. In the Your Name field please include your blog name, the title of the book and the author. Make sure the link takes me directly to your review or your entry won't count and will be deleted from the list.

Hi Tina, I'm glad you're enjoying taking part :o) It's actually time for the challenge to move on to another blog so I won't be hosting it in 2015 but it's going to another fab UK blogger so don't worry the challenge will still be going on in full force :o) I'll have all the details about how to sign up in the December link up post next week :o)
