Win ‘As Darkness Falls’

My birthday’s coming up, and it occurred to me that a great way to celebrate a wonderful year would be to give away a signed copy of As Darkness Falls! My publisher, Hachette Australia, is donating a copy of the book, and I’m donating the signature and postage costs.

So, what do you need to do to be in with a chance to win? Simply use the form below to answer three easy questions – and you can find the answers in chapter one, which can be downloaded for free from the As Darkness Falls website.

The three questions are:

  1. What is the name of Bella’s dog?
  2. What is the name of Bella’s old home town?
  3. What is the name of the Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) in charge of the case?

So, read chapter one, pop your answers in the form below, and press the ‘send’ button. Entries close at midnight at the end of the weekend of 11th & 12th October 2008 – and I’ll use western USA time, not Australian time. On the evening of 13th October, I’ll put the names of all the correct entries into a hat (or a bucket!), and ask my DH to draw out the winning entry.


  • Only one entry per person, please.
  • I respect your privacy and will not use your email address for any purpose other than to contact you if you are the lucky winner
  • If you live on this planet, no matter where, you can enter this contest.

Thank you to everybody who entered – this contest is now closed!

  1. Hi Helen and Robin! Glad you enjoyed the first chapter πŸ™‚

    Robin, your book that I got in SF is on my TBR pile. Maybe I’ll take a bit of time off from writing for my birthday, and indulge in some fun with Romeo!

  2. Happy Birthday, Bron! (whenever it gets here). It was great to meet you in SF, and hold that book in my sweaty little hands. Too bad you didn’t turn away long enough for me to make away with it – then I wouldn’t have to enter your contest to get one!

  4. Hi Angie, Fester and Vonnie!

    Fester, there’s a reason I had an invisible padlock and chain on the book πŸ™‚

    Vonnie, it should be available in bookshops and book departments of KMart/Target/Big W etc in Australia, and its also out in NZ.

    Thanks, ladies, for commenting, and for entering the contest!

  5. Bronwyn, I really liked the first chapter. Living in the US I’m very bummed that I won’t be able to snatch it off the shelf, so I’m grateful for the chance to win a copy.

    If I’m not the lucky one, I’ll have to budget for an international purchase… πŸ˜‰

    Best of luck!

  6. Hi, azteclady! Glad you enjoyed the first chapter, and thanks for entering the contest! If you don’t win this one, I may have another contest before Christmas πŸ˜‰

    Unfortunately, Australian book prices are a whole lot more than US ones, and by the time postage is added, it gets expensive – but on the upside (for you!), the US dollar is buying a lot more $AUD just now than it has for a while.

    But we can both keep our fingers crossed for a US publisher to get enthusiastic about the book!

  7. Since it costs an arm and a leg to get a copy from across the pond I really want to win a copy Bron. that chapter really made me want to read more. Hope you’re feeling well and we’ll be fwapping for you.
