#FREE #HistoricalFiction book – to UK school or library YOU nominate! #Giveaway

Last Friday I took part in Jennifer C. Wilson’s launch for her latest novel The Raided Heart at https://www.facebook.com/events/2545500392349693/, and I made the following giveaway offer:

“My aim in my books is to bring Richard’s real story to children far and wide, before they’re exposed to Shakespeare’s highly entertaining, but hugely inaccurate portrayal of his life in ‘The Tragedy of Richard III’. I aim to get The Order of the White Boar into as many schools and libraries in the UK as I can and I would like your help with that.

Please nominate a school (maybe a particular class) or library that you would like to receive a free copy. Simply tell me why (is your child or grandchild a pupil there? Is there a Ricardian connection in the town? Does the school not have much money to spend on new books?) and I will choose one lucky winner from among your answers.”

This offer is open until 8 pm GMT on Monday 25th November at the Jennifer’s launch page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2545500392349693/ – scroll down to ‘All posts’, click on that and scroll again to find the original post. Please comment underneath the post with your nomination of school or library. Or you can just DM me if you prefer!

You have a very good chance of winning as few nominations have yet been received! 😊🐗📚
