#FridayFiction Competition – 10th May

Polly Sky News

Welcome to another instalment of my Friday Fiction competition! 

I’m on a mission to get my followers to take a break from their hectic lives and get reading… and writing!

Every Friday between 7am & 9pm, all you need to do is follow me (@pollycourtney) and retweet any of my #FridayFiction tweets or include #FridayFiction in a tweet to me, and you could be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize….

This week I’m celebrating the anniversary of the publication of my third book, The Day I Died. This week’s lucky winner of the #FridayFiction competition will receive not only a signed copy of The Day I Died, but also the chance to join me at a workshop on Self Publishing, to talk about how you might make your own book a reality.

The Day I Died

PLEASE NOTE: The Workshop is being run on Monday 13th May, 19:00 – 21:30pm at:

Café Gourmand
53 Lexington Street,
I realise that a number of my followers will be unable to attend the workshop due to geographical limitations, so if you cannot make it you will still win a signed copy of The Day I Died and, if you opt for it, the opportunity to have a 1-hour Q&A session with me about self-publishing over the phone instead!

So don’t forget to tune in every Friday (7am – 9pm) and just ‘follow&RT’ to be in with a chance of winning! This weeks lucky winner will be announced on Sunday Evening. 

– Good luck! –

How to enter:

It couldn’t be easier. With your Twitter account, follow @pollycourtney and RT one of that week’s Friday Fiction tweets or include #FridayFiction in your own tweet, while the competition is open (7am-9pm).

For example “@pollycourtney #FridayFiction” You can also make your Tweet a bit more personal if you like, for example “@pollycourtney I hope I win this weeks #FridayFiction as I love books!”
