January give-away: Happy Birthday to me!

I love birthdays – every year is a bonus, a blessing, a challenge. I have made a promise to myself to celebrate each birthday with great vigour! As such, I’ve enjoyed my wonderful presents, I’m going out for lunch with my boys, I’m going to have a few barbecues with friends and I’m going to eat cake. Lots of cake. With ice-cream.

I didn’t want you guys to miss out on the fun, so I thought I’d mark the day with a give-away. This month, you have a chance to win a copy of one of the books that I’m reading at the moment; Makeda, by Prue Sobers.

“He wanted to applaud her for her cleverness. With peerless skill at court, she had seduced his hidebound courtiers and made them laugh. Now single-handedly, with a feather’s tip, she has soothed his counsellors and brought the rowdy meeting to a seamless head.

As a public figure, she had not disappointed. The private woman was what intrigued him now.”

With Makeda, you’ll take an Ethiopian adventure, travelling with the beautiful and spirited Makeda, the Queen of Sheba. It has romance, intrigue, and royalty – what more could you possibly want?

To go into the running to win, all you have to do is:
