Have you heard?
In late April (23-29) Terri is running a ‘Book Club Week’ on her blog, with a range of events to help book clubs, reading groups and readers in general get more out of her contemporary fiction title, In Leah’s Wake.
There is also a dedicated page on Terri’s blog (http://terriglong.com/blog/in-leahs-wake-book-club-week-april-23-29/) that people can visit for updates – they can also enter a competition to win an Amazon voucher worth $100 or one of five signed paperback copies. In addition, a book club/reading group will have the opportunity to win a set of up to 20 copies of Terri’s next novel, Nowhere to Run.
So I guess you want to know how can clubs/readers get involved?
They can get involved in so many ways! They can submit a question for Terri, share some of the topics they’ve been discussing about the book, submit a short piece (100-200 words) on their favorite character – any of these activities will give participants an entry into the competition to win an Amazon voucher worth $100.
To enter the Book Club Competition and be in with a chance of winning a set of 20 copies of Nowhere to Run for a book club or reading group, entrants simply submit a collective summary of what their group or club thought of In Leah’s Wake. If they haven’t read the book yet, they can also submit their views on why they’ve chosen to add the title to their schedule.
Here is the schedule for the 'Book Club Week'...
