Due to the generosity of one of our members we have an extra galley copy of 'For Heaven’s Eyes Only'.

Galley copies (for those that don't know) are sent out to reviewer by the publisher months before the release so they can read them and (hopefully) write something nice.
They are the whole book but with out the colour cover.

The raffle will run from now until Sunday April 3rd. The winner will be drawn by Simon at midday (UK time) and the winner will be contacted, the book will be sent out the next day (if I have your address by then).
So the winner will have it a couple of months before the street date.

These copies are quite rare and I'll get this one signed by Simon, so the winner will have something unique.

The raffle is open to members and none members alike.
All proceeds will go to charity.
The judges decision is final.

To enter is very simple.

Go to http://www.mycharitypage.com/CantTukWontTuk/
Donate £5 for an entry, when you enter your name add _srg at the end so we know it's for the raffle. You can enter as many times as you like. (if you're in the UK it would help if you ticked the 'gift aid' box. If your outside the UK, please don't as it confuses the site.
After you've entered PM your screen name to me with an email address (if you're not a member send the same info through the email link on the contacts page).
The site takes most credit and debt cards. If you want to use Paypal see below.


PayPal;
If you want to use Palpay, PM or email with a screen name you'd like and I'll send you an email address to use with pp. Once the payment is in Paypal I'll make the payment using the screen name you've supplied.

Good luck.

Any questions, ask below.

Just to answer a couple of questions.

This copy is also known as the 'uncorrected proof' version in some places.

I've attached a scan of the front cover.

There are very few of these produced, and are for reviewers only as a rule. These can not be bought anywhere.

This will be the only autographed copy of this edition. I know for a fact that Simon has not signed any other copy. So it will be unique.

Well, I'm afraid I probably contribute another 5 or so views to the tally! I have a tendency to pop into the site, and my bookmarks are set up so that my most recent post here - this page, seems to be the one I get when I type in "simon". What with my automatic cookie deleting, I just keep adding pageviews!

Another thing is we don't know the demographics of the site. For all we know, there's a fair number of kids who couldn't electronically transfer money. You might want to have a reader poll to get some info on the age/gender etc. of your readers.

I was thinking the same thing, Steve. Hopefully you'll get some more contributions soon!

Come on, guys, it's cheaper than buying the book ;-)

Just a slight change to things.

Due to circumstance we can't do the draw at 12:00 uk time. Instead we're going for 6pm (18:00) uk time still on Sunday.
