The winners should have their copies or be getting them very soon. The book is out on Thursday for anyone who would like to join in. Find out more HERE

If you do get a free copy, don't forget to leave your thoughts/questions for the author on this thread by the end of the month.

And watch out for our May book giveaway - coming soon

Has anyone had their copy of the April book. It seems a bit late?

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Mon 09-Apr-18 11:29:24

I will follow up

Never managed to enter, as a result of previously highlighted issues with the page sad

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Mon 09-Apr-18 15:04:10

Ah sorry to hear this humpty - the issues were, in fact, as a result of the fact the giveaway had closed (but the form hadn't vanished as it should have done) but we will be announcing May's book very soon and it will be in the newsletter and on the home page when we do

Just to say, winners should have their books by the end of the week.

I couldn’t enter either humpty I just kept getting a message asking me to join Gransnet. confused

That's what I got, Gilly...

Most odd - that should only have happened when the competition was already closed. Usually that renders the form invisible - on this occasion it didn't. We had many hundreds of entries so it was definitely working. Gillybob - just checked as I thought we had seen your name on there and it was!

Cari maybe the page could be altered so that when the draw is closed, it contains a message to that effect?

Thank you so much, my copy of 'Dear Mrs Bird' has just popped through my letterbox. I have already read good reviews of the book, and I am really looking forward to reading it.

Thank you! Mrs Bird has just flown through my letterbox too, and it will be a treat to start enjoying on such a grey, mizzly day.
