To celebrate the birthday of a great author and a lovely person, I am doing a giveaway. But first of all:
Let me introduce you to author HANNAH LYNN.
Hannah Lynn is an award-winning novelist. Publishing her first book, Amendments – a dark, dystopian speculative fiction novel, in 2015, she has since gone on to write The Afterlife of Walter Augustus – a contemporary fiction novel with a supernatural twist – which won the 2018 Kindle Storyteller Award and the delightfully funny and poignant Peas and Carrots series. While she freely moves between genres, her novels are recognisable for their character driven stories and wonderfully vivid description. She is currently working on a YA Vampire series and the reimaging of a classic Greek myth. Born in 1984, Hannah grew up in the Cotswolds, UK. After graduating from university, she spent ten years as a teacher of physics, first in the UK and then around Asia. It was during this time, inspired by the imaginations of the young people she taught, she began writing short stories for children, and later adult fiction Now as a teacher, writer, wife and mother, she is currently living in the Austrian Alps.
You could read my review here of the winning novel: The Afterlife of Walter Augustus.
Although you have read on her biography some of the parts I am going to mention, just indulge me and read them again 🙂
Hannah Lynn writes different genres but her writing is simply awesome. Her use of adjectives in descriptions; her use of beautiful-to-the-ear words… yes, I am talking as a linguistic nerd but, that is what I am deep inside (maybe not so deep 😉 ). Moreover, she writes very entertaining stories with characters whose personality is developed and in tune with real people, with “normal” people. I am not saying that all her stories are real life but some of her characters are people that we can relate to. As an example, Letty is a lady who has a non-qualified job but she is content with that… more or less. In Peas and Carrots, Eric works in London, works all day and has barely any time for anything. These are two examples of characters that you can relate to and you may even know similar people. Said that, it does not mean that the events that occur in their lives have to be “normal”. I really hope that I never experience Letty’s story!
So far, as mentioned, Hannah Lynn has published five books and she is working on new titles that are promising. I keep telling her to carry on writing books on the Peas and Carrots series!
I only need to read Amendments from her published books. I have enjoyed so much the other four books and I highly recommend them. That is why I am doing a giveaway of three of her books.
However, I am giving away ebooks instead of paperbacks. But “bear” with me! I have never gifted kindle ebooks before, so I need to check that it works. Although, the three winners, in case, I cannot get the kindle ebook sent, will have a different present for sure, one paperback.
Some of you may think: why is it so difficult to gift the kindle ebook from Amazon, just buy it and send it… I will tell you why it is more complicated than that. As you may remember I do not live in England anymore, therefore, Amazon makes my life complicated when I try to gift ebooks. However, next week I will be back to England for holidays and I will take advantage and gift the winners from there.
Why ebooks and not paperbacks? Because there may be a bigger surprised for the three winners if I can get Amazon to let me gift ebooks… let’s leave it there.
How can you participate? It is very easy, just click on the Rafflecopter link below and follow instructions. Let me know by commenting this post if you already have one of her books.
One of the conditions that will help you to get points is to have “bought” the first ebook on the #peasandcarrots series: Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin. The reason why I write “bought” is because it is free on Amazon. Unless it is Amazon Italy but it costs only 99 cents. Just double check before buying if you use a different Amazon account form the ones below. Amazon UKAmazon USAmazon CAAmazon FR
Commenting in this post will give you one point too towards the prize.
Terms and conditions: I will give/gift one kindle ebook to three winners (three ebooks in total) and in case that I cannot work it out, it will be an paperback.
