Notes on Postcards
It's the beginning of the year, and to celebrate I'm going to open up 'Notes on Postcards' again. I've done this twice before, and it's always fun (though sending out 80+ postcards each time hurt my hand somewhat! ;))
If you'd like a postcard from me, then drop me an email with your address, and I'll send you one. It might have a 'Weird Thing...' on it from the sequel, or it might have a couple of lines from a poem of mine. If you have a preference as to which of these you'd prefer, let me know in your email.
Closing date is midnight, Saturday 6thJanuary, and is open worldwide. x
ETA: Thanks for all the responses to the 'Notes on Postcards' requests! I will get them written and posted, but you'll have to be a little patient so I can spread out a. the act of writing them and b. the cost (there are over 100 to send! Phewf!).

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
