I’ll be chairing the evening with Peter May this Tuesday, 24 January 2017 at 7pm at Waterstones, Kensington, London, when he’ll be talking about easily the best crime novel I’ve read so far this year Cast Iron.
Want a copy of the audiobook of The Birdwatcher by Whole Story Audiobooks? OK. Tell us your best bird-related anecdote in the comments on my Facebook page. Any true story that features a bird in some shape or form. The anecdote with the most likes by Sunday night 15 Jan 2017 will be deemed the winner.
8 Feb 2017 This competition is now over. Thanks to EVERYONE who took part, and wrote such great reasons for why they wanted to stay.
In the run up to the UK paperback publication of The Birdwatcher on February 9 2017, I’m giving away two nights at a very special place in Dungeness. See below for How to Enter.
The Birdwatcher is set in this extraordinary location on the Kent coast. It’s there that William South, the birdwatcher, has lived all his adult life.
You can win two bed-and-breakfast nights at a delightful one-bedroom holiday cabin on Dungeness, a unique part of the Nature Reserve. Its the perfect base to explore this wild and magnificent area of Kent. You’ll also win a signed hardback of The Birdwatcher.
HOW TO ENTER
Just fill in the form by February 7 2016, telling us why you want to spend two nights at Dungeness. We’ll pick the person we think has the best reason to want to go there.
Note. This competition is for members of William Shaw’s Readers list only; as a member of the list, you’ll receive a handful of emails during the year about events, new books and prizes.
Looking forward to this evening at Waterstones, Canterbury. 8 December, 6.30pm. Tickets are £3 from Waterstones, Rose Lane, Canterbury.
Lovely evening in Waterstones, Haywards Heath, with (from left), Lesley Thomson, Susan Wilkins and Elly Griffiths. A full house, despite filthy weather.
