To celebrate half a year of Demention.... TA DA!! Yes: we have our very own bookmarks. Huge thanks to Demention's own Julienne Durber for designing their total gorgeousness.On one side, the Demention banner may look a little familiar; on the other side, it is the Demention team - and our books, website and Twitter details. Claire Merle's second cover is hidden from view just now as it hasn't been revealed quite yet, but it is on the actual bookmarks.
What do you think?
To celebrate our six months, and our new bookmarks, it is time for a GIVEAWAY.This competition is now closed, but please read on!
In addition to the bookmarks, I've got some books to give away also: these are titles by the writers with whom I did events at the Edinburgh Book Festival a few months ago. Who knew that their publishers were going to send me a copy of them so I could read them before the event? I didn't, and by the time they came in the post I'd already bought my own copies. So here are the spares: Dark Parties by Sara Grant, The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker, and Dead Time by Anne Cassidy: and as this is a celebration, I'll throw in a signed copy of Slated, too!
What have we been up to over six months of Demention?
Julie, Julienne and I introduced ourselves in the very first post; then Claire introduced herself a bit later when she joined Demention.
