I am very excited to be running my very first contest! I have been reading a lot of excellent U.S based blogs written mainly by WAHMs, and from time to time they feature a giveaway. It got me wondering if such a thing would work here in Singapore. Of course, the competition is open to international entrants, so every entrant has an equal opportunity!

So here's the offer. I have a brand new, hot off the press, signed by the author, copy of children's book Monkey Magic by Grant S. Clark. Published by local book publishers Monsoon Books, this is a story of an 11 year old girl who travels to the rainforests of Borneo with her scientist father, who need to find out why the orangutans in the Mukada Nature Reserve are falling sick and heading to the coast. She soon finds herself having many exciting adventures as she trys to uncover the 'mystery that brings her face to face with dark forces threatening the creatures in the rainforest.'

This adventure is suitable for children 8years and older, and has been reviewed by such people as David Bellamy "A Super book! Treasure it!", Terri Irwin "My son loved this book" and Jeremy Strong "A gripping adventure with an important message".

The author, Grant S. Clark is British born, but lives in Singapore and works as a journalist within the region. He is passionate about wildlife conservation, and has often traveled to Borneo with his two daughters.

If you would like to receive a free copy of this book, all you have to do is answer this simple question about the book,and leave your answer in a comment after this post, including your name and email address if not linked to a blog, or if you'd prefer you can email me directly.


Q. Who is the author of Monkey Magic?

The draw will be held by Random.org, an impartial third party, and is open from 25th March, 2009 until 12noon April 9th Singapore time (GMT+8hours or Wednesday 8th April, 9pm in California), just in time for Easter. The winner has 48 hours to respond once I notify them.

For an extra entry you can do any of the following. Please leave a separate comment telling me what you have done:

  • Follow my blog (if you already have you can still leave a comment and get an extra entry)
  • 'Tweet' about this giveaway. Include a link to your tweet, and please, one tweet a day.
  • Subscribe to my feed (at top right corner of blog)
  • If you have a blog, for two extra entries you can write a post about the giveaway with a link to it. Leave a comment with a link to your blog post.

Good luck!
