Amazon Slab City Blues Giveaway Second Chance Prize Draw – REDUX

OK, let’s try this again. Yesterday I started a giveaway for 10 copies of the large format paperback edition of Slab City Blues: The Collected Stories and 10 copies of the ebook. The paperback giveaway was open to anyone who forwarded me their email confirming entry to the recent abortive Amazon giveaway, which ended with no winners (see explanation here). As it’s become clear that many people don’t keep their emails the fairest thing is to open up the paperback giveaway to all comers. Therefore, anyone who wants a chance of winning please send an email to me at anthonyryan27@hotmail.co.uk marked ‘Slab City Blues giveaway’, specifying if you wish to be entered into the paperback or the ebook contest, or both. This second chance contest will run until 30th of April and the winners will be chosen at random. I’ve amended the original giveaway post to avoid any confusion over the rules. Don’t worry if you already emailed your entry to the ebook contest as all entries have been recorded, but do let me know if you also want a chance of winning the paperback and I’ll enter you in both draws.

All email addresses and other personal details received will be deleted at the conclusion of the giveaway. Best of luck.
