Hi!Penny Dolan here and I'll be getting in touch with winners of the draw for the Boy Called M.O.U.S.E competition in a day or two. A big thank you to everyone who entered!

Rebecca Clare Smith said...

Wow. The first thing I've ever actually won... I knew complaining would help me some day. ;)

madwippitt said...

ooooh exciting! If I won I was going to give them to my godson - but I've just changed my mind and will be adding them to my well-thumbed and small-but-discerning collection of signed first editions! (And anyway I just bought him copies of Zeus on the Loose and Grk for his birthday. My turn now!)

Leila Rasheed said...

Congratulations every one! I'll be judging my comp this week.

John Dougherty said...

They're not first editions, I'm afraid (well, Bansi may be - not sure if it's gone to reprint yet; but Zeus definitely has!).

madwippitt said...

Never mind - they'll still be a happy addition to my select collection of signed books!

Gillian Philip said...

Hi, and it's the incompetent Gillian Philip here, who forgot to list her winner! I've now done so over at the comments thread for my competition - the winner is Steven Allsop, but everyone will get a signed Bloodstone poster. Congratulations Steven and thanks everyone for entering!

There was such a fantastic response to the Fairy Bear's competition that I decided to give away two extra sets of books.

The winners are listed in the comments section of my blog.

Thanks to everyone who e-mailed me.
