The Spectral Competition

First off, look at my slightly updated cover and its blurb by Simon Bestwick. Not that I'm showing off or anything. You can read an interview with Simon at the Ginger Nuts website.

Now onto the almost as important bit... The competition. Or rather two competitions. One for those who bought Nowhere Hall and one for those who didn't (because I don't like to leave anyone out).

Competition One

As a thank you to everyone who snagged a copy of Nowhere Hall before it sold out, I'm offering the following prize:

A Spectral Press chapbook subscription, which will include the following books:

King Death by Paul Finch (released Dec 2011)
Rough Music by Simon Kurt Unsworth (released March 2012)
The Eyes of Water by Alison J Littlewood (released June 2012)
What Gets Left Behind by Mark West (released September 2012)

...all will be signed by the respective authors.

Competition Two:

And for those who missed out on a copy of Nowhere Hall because they sold so darn fast (what happened?), I am running a competition that is open to all.

As you may or may not know, Nowhere Hall is a limited edition of 100 and each copy will be signed and numbered. I'll be giving away number one with a special inscription by me but no doodles. I can't doodle.

So how do you enter? Send an email to catephoenix(at)gmail(dot)com saying if you are entering Competion One, Competition Two, or both and you're entered.

Closing date is midnight July 14th and prizes will be despatched at time of publication.

What a great idea!

Jeff Coffield said...

I adore the idea. New fan. Read Trench Foot yesterday - amazing.

Cate Gardner said...

You'll regret it if I end up scrawling silliness all over your copy, Mike.

I thought so, Mark. :D

Thanks, Jeff.

Deborah Walker said...

Ooh, you are good to us, Cate.

Deborah Walker said...

Just read the inteview on Ginger Nuts. Horror as the literature of unease. Excellent.

Cate Gardner said...

Indeed. And hopefully Simon's book will be a huge success. It's about time.

And, as per the interview with Simon, I'll be publishing a Spectral chapbook called 'Cold Havens' by him in early 2013... featuring TWO short stories.... =D

Awesome prizes Cate.

Cate Gardner said...

Some people would disagree, Katey ;) About the partying that is.

Cheers, Richard.

Sounds good - I literally started reading 'Strange Men...' about two hours ago, and it's impressed me a hell of a lot so far.

Cate Gardner said...

Wow, thanks James
