James Oswald Series Giveaway Winner

We have a winner of the fabulous James Oswald books signed by the author. Thank you to everyone who commented. There were 12 people in the draw after a duplicate entry, one who kindly commented but didn't want drawn and the author himself who also graciously declined to be drawn! I was most surprised and thought it was wonderful of James to comment, as I'd told him what I was up to when getting the books signed. I did think it might be amusing to add him into the draw and have him reread his own work if he won, but then realised interrupting his writing schedule would be totally counterproductive for his readers!

I decided I'd go with the Power of the Paw instead of a random generator to choose the winner but 8am is clearly not business hours in the feline world here and I couldn't get a compliant cat.
Magic would not rise from soaking up the leftover heat in the bed and Red was too dozy after being scooped from his chair to be pressed into service, even after I went to the bother of wrapping them round a whiskas pocket!
Nice shot, sadly no interest! 
So as a decent cat servant yours truly had to do the honours after much stirring.
I've emailed Angel Jem for her details and must say I am a little jealous of her having the series to date to indulge in. Hope she enjoys reading the books as much as I did.


  1. Oh no, I can't believe I completely missed your first giveaway! Congrats to the winner though :-)

  3. I love the idea the author popped by! I am well happy to have won the giveaway and looking forward to reading the books! With 3 avid readers in the house they will be well used! Thank you for being so generous x
