The Lantern giveaway!


A gorgeous deluxe paperback edition of The Lantern has been published this week by Harper in the US – the same size and interior design as the hardback, the same lovely deckled edge to the pages, but with the new lavender field jacket.

There’s some excellent news too: it’s the March Book Pick at Costco, which means it’s available there at a very competitive price as well as through bookstores.
To mark the event I’m offering two signed copies as a giveaway. I’ll send anywhere in the world so you have a chance of winning wherever you are. All you have to do is go over to my Author page on Facebook, “like” the page and say hello in the comments under the picture of the cover.  Or you can follow the blog here and leave a greeting. In a week’s time I’ll pick two names out of a hat. Easy!

If you need further persuading, here’s an excerpt from Kathy Blumenstock’s review in the Washington Post:
“The Lantern…offers a vivid escape to an intriguing place… The split-screen tales unfolding in alternating voices than span half a century eventually converge, with disturbing and surprising answers to questions that haunt both narrators… Lawrenson embellishes her merging stories with description of the rich scents surrounding the hamlet: rosemary, ripe figs, and a breath of lavender so fresh that readers might close their eyes and inhale, expecting a faint whiff of the purple-flowering plant.”

Congrats!

I must say I do prefer the US cover with the lavendar, but that may be because it is such a beautiful colour. :)

I have shared link on my fb blog page

Congratulations on the success The Lantern seems to be having. It's on my wishlist so if I was lucky enough to win a copy in your giveaway I would give it a good home.

I've been following you here for awhile, and since I didn't know you had a FB page before, I went on over and liked you :)
