It’s Spring, but not only that, it’s been the most beautiful April I can ever remember and all this has put me in a rather good mood. I thought I’d share this good mood by hosting another book giveaway (Open to UK entrants only).
I’m giving one lucky blog reader the chance to win not one, but THREE shiny new books – I have the first 3 books of Marianne De Pierres’ Sentients of Orion series to give away.
All you have to do is leave a comment below and your name will be entered.
For an extra entry just tweet the following (and make sure you mention it in your comment with your TweetName so I can enter you twice!):
‘I have entered @caroleheidi ‘s book giveaway on http://www.carolefindsherwings.wordpress.com/2011/04/26/spring-giveaway Closes 10th May’
The giveaway will be open to enter until 5.30pm on Tuesday 10th May. I will then get Tori to pull a name out of a hat to choose the winner. She still can’t read and is very impartial.
Make sure you leave me some way of contacting you in your comment (email or Twitter) so I can let you know if you win!
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
This Giveaway is now CLOSED! Results are here.
What am I winning? All of this:
While drifting in space, lost, due to navigational failure, a mineral scout discovers God. When word gets out, academics from the studiums across Orion scramble to gain the Entity’s favour. However, not all the sentients of Orion hold this ‘god’ in awe – some, like the philosophers of Scolar and the Transhuman’s of Extropy are deeply suspicious. Onto the grand stage of inter-planetary academic politics, intellectual conceit and dubious theology walks Baronessa Mira Fedor. Her planet has been torn apart by the invasion of a race of giant tardigrades. Only the Orion League of Sentient Species can lend aid, but OLOSS are preoccupied with communicating with god. Mira, together with the larrikin, misogynist Jo-Jo Rasterovich, is left to her own resources to find help. In doing so she unmasks a galaxy-size intrigue. But will she live long enough to tell anyone…?
Having fled the invasion on Araldis, Mira Fedor travels to the nearest Orion League planet seeking aid for her devastated world, but the authorities seem more interested in stealing her bio-ship, Insignia, than in rendering help. While Mira flees from world to world, Araldis burns. The more Mira uncovers, the more mysteries she finds: why is the initiate Tekton taking such extreme measures just to acquire a mineral alloy? Why do so many of the protagonists in this galaxy-wide drama have links to the Stain Wars? And what part does the Sole Entity – literally, God – have to play …?
Araldis is still under occupation by hostile forces, and with the Orion League of Sentient Species seemingly unable – or unwilling – to help, Mira Fedor is forced to turn to the mercenary captain, Rast Randall, if she is to save her planet. But while Rast’s contacts may be free of political constraints, what they lack in red tape they more than make up for in ruthlessness. As some of their hidden strategies are revealed, others become even more opaque. Why have the philosophers of Scolar been targetted? How far does the Extropist influence extend into Orion space? From Lasper Farr, the Stain War veteran and ruler of the junk planet Edo, to the Sole initiates at Belle Monde to Rast herself, everyone is pursuing their own agenda. But are they really separate goals? Or are events rushing to a single, terrifying conclusion …?
