Christmas Has Fallen...(Giveaway)

 Christmas has well and truly set in at home, the family's presents are being wrapped (I cannot wait to see my nieces and nephews faces), my friend's Secret Santas have been drawn, the list for the Blogger's Secret Santa I'm participating in are out, and carols are being sung around Christmas trees at work. (Well they will start again (the first carol show was back in September) now Tennis is over and once Gary Barlow has done his thang.)
 And a special gift arrived from the lovelies at Big Book Little Book Blog :D :

Such a gamer.
 This has to be the best month of the year, when do the games begin?

 So it has been one of those years, but I'm here to dwell on happier things. Way back in October something rather amazing happened.
  On Wednesday 26th I was lucky enough to get the chance to meet one of my favourite authors Cassandra Clare.

 Now in celebration of the release of Clockwork Prince this week (who else is excited? Jealous of others who've read it already?) and because Christmas is coming soon, I am going to give-away a paperback copy of City of Fallen Angels. And it's SIGNED, I carried this book with me to the signing (along with all my others) and the wonderful Ms Clare signed every single thing for me. Look:

  It is a second hand copy, I've only read it once. (That was after it arrived late through my letter box and I had to devour it to see what everyone else was talking about.)
  This is going to be international, since it's Christmas I wanted anyone to be able to enter, and this is open until midnight (GMT) Monday 12th December.

 Now all you have to do is post a comment with an email address. Because this is my first giveway, maybe my last, (and I haven't had luck with form thingys) I will be putting everyone's name in a hat (actually it will be a mixing bowl) and my Mum will be drawing the winner.

I think that's all, any questions just ask and I'll reply in the comments.

Now let us sing a song, Last Christmas anyone?


  1. I went to a signing of hers about two years ago, and she was so awesome! I can't wait for The Clockwork Prince (though Jace will always be my fave)! :)

  2. Wow, what a great giveaway! And very seasonal too :). I think I'm going to sing that song by The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping. I've always loved the story in it.


  3. You sing beautifully. :) I bought the husband unit several games for Christmas.

  4. Found on Daily Dodo's site. Nice blog.



  5. Wow, awesome gift. I've never played any of the actual harry potter games, are they any good? (I do have the lego ones tho and they are awesome!)

    I am way jealous that you got to meet the glorious Cassandra, and would love to own a signed copy, so i have to enter this -

    Hope you have a wonderful christmas x

  20. Cassandra is one of my favorite authors out there.You are very like to have a chance to meet her. Merry Christmas in advance :)

  21. I'm writing an additional comment to let you know I've given you an award :). You may very well already have it, or not want it, but I thought I'd let you know it's over at my blog.

  22. Ooh! Have fun with your giveaway! I've done a few, and they're always exciting. I had good luck with some random number generators online - just had it select a number between one and _____, and the number with that comment won.

    P.S. Don't enter me into the drawing. I already have it, and I feel selfish taking two! It will make someone's day, though. :-)

  23. This is now closed!

    Thank you so much to everyone who entered/commented. I shall be drawing the winner soon and will post a blog within the next day or so.

    Thanks again :)
