Competition Time - Well, More of a Book Giveaway, Really.
Great news, the lovely publishers of my previous book on Darwin, Darwin in Scotland have just made some calculations and have worked out that they owe me some royalties. Always welcome, but never more so than now because I asked if, to cover some of the monies, they'd send copies of that book in lieu, and they agreed! So, now I can put up for grabs a copy of a book of which I am pretty proud, the five star reviewed Darwin in Scotland every time we hit a landmark in funding. The obvious points to celebrate are whenever we reach a multiple of 10, so books will be given away at 60%, 70%, 80% and 90%. I'm reserving 100% for a bigger prize, I hope. Watch this space, but for now, scroll down for how to win.
All you have to do for a chance to win a copy of Darwin in Scotland is pledge on THE DISSENT OF MAN. That's it, that's all. If you have already pledged, then you're already entered, but if you have pledged for 2 copies, then you've got double the chance of winning. 3 copies, thrice, etc.
There is one caveat, I think it only fair to other supporters that, if you win having pledged on a digital copy of THE DISSENT OF MAN, then you will be sent a digital copy of Darwin in Scotland. I hope you agree that this is equitable.
The only other thing to say is that copies of Darwin in Scotland are still available, but there's only a hundred or so left, so don't leave it much longer to grab your copy. You can either get them from Amazon (currently, used from £7.99, new from £9.45), or brand new and cheaper, from me (@jfderry / email@example.com ) for the set price of,
Darwin in Scotland: £7.60
Postage and packaging: UK £2.50, mainland Europe £3.95, Rest of World £7.50
Oh, and good luck for the competitions !!
