Giveaway: Win The Riddler’s Gift and Second Sight by Greg Hamerton

Thanks to Greg’s awesome generosity, a set of the first two novels in his ‘Tale of the Lifesong’ series is up for grabs!

Why am I not giving you any info about the books? Well, you need to answer a question to be eligible to enter, and just giving away the answer would be a bit too easy. 😉

Rules for the giveaway:

1) Only entrants from and in South Africa, please – postage costs are quite hectic, to say the least.

2) You have to head over to Greg’s website and find the answer to this question: “Where is The Riddler’s Gift set?”

3) To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post with your name and the answer.

4) The giveaway starts today (5 September 2010) and will run until the 4th of October (2010), with the winner announced on the 5th.

Oh, and I’m sure Greg won’t mind personalizing the books for the winner, so get your entries in! 🙂

For those not in SA, order your copies of the novels here:

The Riddler’s Gift: Amazon UK,, Amazon US – Paperback, Kindle.

Second Sight – Amazon US

For great deals on both books (available for ordering at the same place), check out the special deals on Greg’s website.

Greg Hamerton Interviewed

I thought I’d draw you attention to an interview that was done with Greg by Nerine Dorman in a local (that’s, South African) newspaper; The Star. Why? Well, beyond the fact that you can find out more about Greg and his work by reading the interview, it’s absolutely awesome to see a Fantasy author, from South Africa, interviewed in a newspaper in his own country – this doesn’t, unfortunately, happen as often as it should.

Hopefully this is an indication of a change happening in the SA press – there are always plenty of reviews of non-SFF books as well as interviews with these authors but very little in terms of SFF is covered; this NEEDS to change if any market can be grown here, and it’s great to see that Greg is getting this kind of attention. And I’m not only talking about reviews and interviews in provincial newspapers but nationwide – if this doesn’t happen, South Africa will never be able to grow its own SFF market. I say, MORE PLEASE! 🙂

Follow this link through to the interview, and check out Greg’s official site here. Also, head on over to Greg’s page at his publisher, Eternity Press. If you’d like to order copies of The Riddler’s Gift, click here for Amazon UK, here for Amazon US (Kindle, Paperback) and here is the link for Second Sight. For readers in SA, order your copies online at The Riddler’s Gift, and to get a copy of Second Sight, check out the special deals on Greg’s website. 🙂

There’s also a review of The Riddler’s Gift over at Fantasy Book Review, and I’ll be posting my reviews soon, too. 🙂
