Book giveaway


Folks, I need to clear some space on the shelves in my office. Gollancz just sent me another bunch of paperbacks, and there is no length to which I will not go in order to avoid dusting ’em, so the time has come to run another giveaway.

songs_tor_pbackFirst up, I have seven copies of the Tor paperback of SONGS OF THE EARTH to give away. Many of you will have aready read this, but I am reliably informed that there are people out there in internetland who haven’t yet heard of me (waves to the good folk of Reddit Fantasy) so here’s your chance to try a new-to-you author for free. You never know, you might even like it.

Second, I am giving away seven copies of the larger format UK paperback of TRINITY RISING. These are the not due in the shops until June 13th, so they’re new and shiny and unthumbed.


Free stuff, people. Who doesn’t love free stuff? Oh, and I’ll sign and personalise each book, too.

This giveaway is open worldwide – all you have to do is leave a comment on this post before midnight UK time on June 15th, and tell me which book you want, then I will put all the names in a hat and select the lucky recipients at random.

When you comment, please make sure you give a valid email address so I can contact you for your shipping addy and personalisation details when the giveaway ends.

UPDATE: If you’ve not read my work before, you should start with SONGS OF THE EARTH as it’s Book 1 in the series. TRINITY RISING is Book 2. If you don’t specify which book you’d prefer, I’ll put you in the hat for SONGS.

UPDATE the second: If your comment does not appear straight away, my apologies, but due to a rise in comment spam I have to manually approve new commenters. I’m training the cats to monitor the feed in my absence.

    Ms. Cooper , I truly enjoyed reading the first book of the Wild Hunt and am about to start the second volume but these are from my local library and would dearly love to have them as my own to read again and again…..and then waiting for the release of the third volume.
    Finely written with great attention to character development….i say bravo!

    thank you, Scott Manuel

    Hi Ellie, just finishing Songs and really enjoying it. I also have to say it is really difficult to find good fantasy, but I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. Please put my name in the hat for Trinity Rising. P.S. You’re doing well to get the cats to do any work for you, mine simply refuses. Thanks.
