Pinch, punch, first of the month, and all that – very best wishes for 2010 from me to you.

To celebrate the new decade – a giveaway of one of my books of the last decade. Names in comments please by noon on Sunday – I will send anywhere in the world.

What could you win? An as new first edition hardback copy of the wonderful Blood Red, Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick, that I rescued from a local charity shop. Apart from slight scuffing to the dustjacket edges, it is in as new condition, and only cost me £1.

For the uninitiated, Marcus Sedgwick’s wonderful novel tells the story of author Arthur Ransome’s time in Russia. Sedgwick is one of those teen authors whose books are crossover adult reads too, and I can’t recommend this one highly enough – it has revolution and politics, spies and intrigue, romance and family drama, all steeped in Russian fairy tales. To read more, see my original review here.

    As an Arthur Ransome geek as a boy (I read all his books immediately they arrived new in our local library virtually within weeks, if not days,of their publication), I'd like to be considered for this one please!!!
