Giveaway: The Dog-Faced Gods Book 1 – A Matter of Blood by Sarah Pinborough

If you guessed correctly from last night’s tidbit, good for you. 🙂 I’ve got an extra copy of Sarah’s novel and I’m looking forward to reading it myself, but I figured that just because I haven’t read it yet doesn’t mean that I can’t give someone else the chance. 🙂

Here’s some info about the book:

The recession that grips the world has left it exhausted. Crime is rising in every major city. Financial institutions across the world have collapsed, and most governments are now in debt to The Bank, a company created by the world’s wealthiest men. But Detective Inspector Cass Jones has enough on his plate without worrying about the world at large. His marriage is crumbling, he’s haunted by the deeds of his past, and he’s got the high-profile shooting of two schoolboys to solve – not to mention tracking down a serial killer who calls himself the Man of Flies. Then Cass Jones’ personal world is thrown into disarray when his brother shoots his own wife and child before committing suicide – leaving Cass implicated in their deaths. And when he starts seeing silent visions of his dead brother, it’s time for the suspended DI to go on the hunt himself – only to discover that all three cases are linked . . . As Jones is forced to examine his own family history, three questions keep reappearing: what disturbed his brother so badly in his final few weeks? Who are the shadowy people behind The Bank? And, most importantly, what do they want with DI Cass Jones?

If you’d like more info about Sarah and her work, check out her website here; Sarah’s also busy with a YA Fantasy series (under the pseudonym Sarah Silverwood), the first book of which, The Double-Edged Sword, is also already available.

Okay, here’s what you need to do to enter the giveaway, and the rules:

1) South African entrants, in South Africa, only! Postage costs are hectic and I just cannot afford to open the contest to the world.

2) To enter all you need to do is comment on the post; I’ll contact the winner by email to get address details at the end of the giveaway.

3) The giveaway starts today and the winner’s name will be posted on the 16th of December. (I’ll choose the winner’s name using So that gives you a month to enter!

4) If I get less than 10 entries I’ll scrap this giveaway and run it again in the future; I’ve run giveaways before that have received very poor responses, and then a giveaway just becomes embarrassing.

If you can’t enter the giveaway and would like to read Sarah’s work. check out the following links: A Matter of Blood (Amazon UK), The Double-Edged Sword (Amazon UK).

Spread the news far and wide! 🙂 I’ll be brining you guys a giveaway every month if I can pull it off!

Good luck to you, and
