To celebrate the official launch of ‘We That are Left’ last Friday with the wonderful Novelistas, my local paper have been running a competition to win a signed copy of the book and a selection of delicious handmade chocolate truffles from Snowdonia-based Cathryn Cariad Chocolates. The flavours we’ve chosen are all linked to the recipes and events in the book (including a good, old-fashioned cup of tea that keeps my heroine going, whether she is growing vegetables, cooking up a seed cake, or dodging bullets in a battered old ambulance on a desperate rescue mission through the battlefields of France). The leaflet that comes with the chocolates explains each taste. So if you want to win a signed copy of the Welsh Books Council’s Book of the Month for March, Waterstones Wales Book of the Month and The National Museums of Wales Book of the Month – this is your chance.
Thank you to Daniel Bissett of the Bangor and Anglesey Mail for the great write-up and the support for a local author, and good luck to everyone who enters. It’s a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. (Although you might be tempted to keep it, especially the chocolates, which are currently carefully locked away and out of temptation)
And thank you to the Novelistas, the most supportive group of fellow-authors a writer could wish for. The launch was fun and a great way to celebrate the birth of a book.
But have no fear, other events are in the planning stages, this is only the beginning…..
