I am very excited as I have just read in the Barefoot Books new letter that I have won a competition.Every week on the message board Barefoot posts a question and last week it was, which Barefoot Book would you most like to receive signed by the author.The choices included:
Alison Jay- I took the moon for a walk
Miriam Latimer- The Prince’s Bedtime
Sophie Faustus- If you’ve happy and you know it
Debbie Harter- The Animal Boogie
Caroline Duffy – The Gift Hugh Lupton-
Laurie Krebs- We all went on a Safari
Stella Blackstone- Granny Went to Market
Well given the wonderful choice on offer and rather than be greedy and say I would like them all ( tempting yes!) I decided on the ‘The Gift’ by Carol Ann Duffy.
“Ooh that is such a tough one as it would be amazing to receive any of these books signed or not. However if pressed I think it would have to choose The Gift, as I am a life long fan of Carol Ann Duffy since I studied her poetry at college and am also in awe of Rob Ryan’s intricate art work. I got to have a sneak preview of The Gift, back in the summer at the Barefoot Conference but have not had a chance to read it properly as it has been so popular it has been out of stock every time I checked! So it would lovely to be able to read it and have it signed into the bargain!”
Well while ‘The Gift’ is whisking its way to me but I thought I would share the luck and pass the baton to you with a chance to win as well with my own competition.
