Yay! At last, the giveaway you’ve been waiting for! It seems ages since I last did a giveaway, and this one is thanks to Valerie at Stuckinbooks.com
My usual genres – that I read or write – are MG, time travel, scifi, fantasy, classic children’s books, horse stories, mysteries, cosies, crime, steampunk…. or any mixture of them! I took a look down my Goodreads shelves and thought, yes, I don’t do horror, and that one that’s listed I well remember…. I don’t have any romance shelved…. I only have one biography… two vampires…. you know it gets hard to think of genres when they’re not right there in front of you!
Well, I’m going to offer you a choice of genres that I don’t usually read, and they couldn’t be further apart. It won’t surprise regular readers to know that one is a biography – my father’s memoirs of his time with Imperial Airways in Africa – and the other is the first in a series I read some time ago, featuring, well, vampire-like people.
Geoffrey Pett tells of how he was recruited by Imperial Airways in 1933, a grammar school boy from the country up against all these rich boys from Eton and the like. After he completes his training he is sent out to Africa, still very much a colonial region administered by the British, French, Belgians, Portuguese and Germans. His adventures in the bush, setting up flying boat landing services in situations that are nothing like the manual says they should be, show what a good choice he was for a job that required ingenuity, resilience and loyalty. It’s a story about the romance of flying, but also about the romance of a young man’s adventures in Africa, and the problems he overcomes when war keeps him apart from the girl he loves.

Charmeine discovers she’s a Light-bearer, just about the time that she finds herself enormously attracted to Tabbruis. He’s a Blood-hunter, he’s hot, and he’s a sworn enemy of Light-bearers. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, except that Tabbruis wants to protect Charmeine from the other Blood-hunters trying to track her down… This is book 1 of the Light-bearer series, and there are three more for you to follow up. Read my review of Charmeine here.
One person can win one of these prizes in paperback, or both of them as ebooks, anywhere in the world.
