Sparkling Toyboys and Free Books!

The 'new writing' website loveahappyending launches on 29th June and here at 'The Fairycake Penthouse Apartment,' there will be much excitement and popping of champagne corks before the watershed. I for one will be enjoying a jacuzzi full of champers and strawberries along with the apartment's resident toyboys (same old Weekday morning then?) But before you hate me - it's not all sparkling wines and seasonal berries - oh no - because I am a featured author on loveahappyending and will be hard at it with those keen, firm young men.

Yes as we soak in bubbles and soft fruit we will be embracing the online launch of loveahappyending packed with fabulous bookishness and oodles of lovely book give aways. As part of this orgiastic celebration of new writing, my delicious publishers Rickshaw are offering 5 free signed copies of Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes to five hungry readers who enter the loveahappyending comp.
All you have to do is either post a comment below or send me an email between 29th June and 3rd July at susan@watson762.wanadoo.co.uk saying why you would love to read Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes. And don't forget - if you fancy yourself as a literary talent-spotter pop along to loveahappyending anytime and learn how to become an Associate Reader and discover the next big thing in authors!
Just a note - Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes isn't out until the 8th September - so you may have to survive on literary leaves and crispbread until then! x

The Rules:
1.  You can enter any time between 29 June 2011 and 3 July 2011.  
2.  Entries are limited to one per book, but feel free to enter for every book on offer.
3.  Winners will be picked by the individual Authors themselves, there are no ‘right’ answers – this is fun and ‘luck of the draw’.
4.  You need to provide an Email address and by entering, give permission for us to contact you to notify you if you have won; winners will then be contacted again within 3 months to be interviewed for the loveahappyending.com blog.  Your Email addresses will not be passed on or used for any other purpose.  All winners will be notified by 17 July 2011.

Please refer back to loveahappyending for more information on the Review Chair and the format of the interview for winners of this competition.
So just drop me a line telling me why you want to read the book and I'll ask the cake fairy (and the toyboys) to choose 3 of the best answers! x
ps. FB Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes (we love FB 'likes' here at the Fairy Cakes Penthouse)
