If you haven’t already, leave a comment on my Kiwi Writer in Paris post and you could win a signed copy of Lizzie Harwood’s stay-awake-till-midnight-to-finish short story collection, Triumph.
It’s that easy.
But do it now, because entries close in two sleep’s time, on Saturday 20th June—Paris time, darling, because that’s where lovely Lizzie lives. Loving ‘lliteration this fine Thursday…
And just because I’m feeling nostalgic as all hell that it’s a whole year since I was in Paris, here’s me on a very happy day in my life:
Moi in Paris, July 2015
Au revoir mes chéris!
‘The Free’, by Willy Vlautin, Faber and Faber, London, 2014
Tell me what book author Willy Vlautin told me I should read in my post Beer and Books with Willy Vlautin and The Delines (clue: it won the 1984 Pulitzer) and you go in the draw to win a copy of Vlautin’s latest book, The Free. I’ve read it. It’s amazing. Entries close Friday 15th November, 2014. Winners notified by email.
A big thank you to Allen & Unwin Australia for supplying the prize.

“I can’t give you one favorite book. How ‘bout five?” I say, squeezing my beer bottle for inspiration.
“Nope. Cheating. You gotta give me one.” Willy Vlautin – award winning author and alt-country superstar – rocks back and forth on his toes and smiles a smile that stretches like telephone lines from his eyes to his chin. My carriages are momentarily uncoupled.
