Your chance to win our fabulous London themed prize!

18th March 2016

IMG_3708London is undoubtedly one of the great cities of the world to visit – and we are very pleased to be able to offer an exciting London themed prize in our competition this month.

We have copies of two great books to be won. First What Goes Around by Emily Chappell – the entertaining and informative memoir of the life of a cycle courier in the city, and second London Buildings Colouring Book by Hannah Dipper and Robin Farquhar – a grown up colouring book featuring some iconic buildings for you to colour in as you wish. There is also information on each building featured. Both books are fantastic for finding your way around and taking you to places you might not otherwise visit. Plus an easy to construct pop out phone box (nostalgia, or what!) and a greetings card featuring a cycle race through the city.

To enter the competition all you have to do is write in the Comments box below the one event in London that you would like to be present at this year. It’s that easy!

Good luck!

    Oh goodness, the Notting Hill carnival sounds like fun.

    However, being a Canadian. I would love every moment that I had in London … regardless of the event.

    The Last Night at the Proms. I’ve been to local versions, but nothing could be as utterly fabulous as the real thing.

    I’m so excited to say that the one event I want to attend is the London Book Fair, and that I WILL BE THERE! First time in London, and I’ll be at a booth with my publisher (Sunpenny) and my children’s Holy Land adventure novel, Sophie’s Quest!

    London! One of my top city to visit before I die along with New York and Geneva! Haha. There are so many things I’d love to do and visit in London. Heck, just breathing the air of London could make me happy. 😉
    But I think it would be awesome if I could go in the Buckingham Palace Tour! I mean seriously who wouldn’t?!
    Thank you so much for the chance and I’d love to win this precious package! ❤

    I’ve missed the event I wanted to go to; last week’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations. Apart from the big events in Trafalgar Sq; with music, food and plenty of talk, there was loads going on in the districts (Kilburn, of course but lots of other places too). Hopefully, I won’t have missed all of it and I can catch some this weekend with an intercity train after work……..

    My dream is to stand at my publisher’s booth at the London Book Fair in April 2016. Sunpenny Publishing took on both my book THE LOST CROWN OF APOLLO and that of my twin sister’s, both released in summer 2015. Now, Sunpenny has taken a booth at the Int’l book fair and my twin sister is heading to London. I’d love to join them!
