Giveaway – Day 4 – Philippa Gregory & Maggie Stiefvater

Only 11 days left until we throw open the gates of Dairy Meadows and welcome you all in.

Maggie Stiefvater

In anticipation of all the jollity to come we’ve got books and tickets to giveaway here everyday right up until the festival.  Each day will bring a new pair of star writers, and a new chance to win tickets to see them at Hay along with copies of their latest/biggest/most phenomenal books (full T&Cs below).

Today’s pretty darn awesome writers are Philippa Gregory and Maggie Stiefvater.

Two stellar writers of YA fiction bookend the festival this year and boy are we stoked about their events.  Philippa will be revealing her very first foray into the YA market with The Changeling – a novel overflowing with mystery and intrigue. Maggie’s Shiver trilogy established her as a fan-girl favourite among readers in the UK and Stateside.  Her new stand alone novel, The Scorpio Races, takes her in a new direction, but has all her trademark warmth and wit.

To be in with a chance to win leave us a comment telling us what magical power you would most like to have.

Good luck!

    The power i would most like to have is the power to interface with technology using my mind.

  2. Anna Maria says:

    Not very original, I am afraid – the power of invisibility. I’d love to follow the Queen for a day:-)

  3. corey says:

    The magical power I would like is to be able to travel through time – and once there, understand what people were saying! Imagine being able to see Krakatoa erupt, or hear Demosthenes orate, or watch a play with Oscar Wilde… Just so long as I could come back to the present time at the end of it, though!

  4. Ann Wright says:

    The magical power I would most like to have is to be able to heal people and stop them suffering. To be able to help people when they are hurt or cure them would be a wonderful gift.

  5. fiwells says:

    With all the modern technology around there are still some days that it would be better to see people face to face rather than through a computer screen, so I would like a Star Trek style transporter. Have always wanted to say ‘beam me up Scottie’

  6. Victoriaprune says:

    My choice would be the jedi-like power to influence others, which (of course) I would only use for good, getting everyone to sign up for world peace and not using it for personal gain in any way. At all. No sir.

  7. If I could pick one magical power, then it’d be the ability to silence crying children and babies with one look.

  8. Anna Morris says:

    I’d like the power to transport myself anywhere in the world in an instant so I wouldn’t have to spend so much of my life on the bus!

  9. Helen says:

    Time travelling – both to the future and the past but also because it might just make my life more manageable if I could be in two places at once!

  10. pedropedol says:

    If I could choose one magic power, it would be the power to make the sun shine every day at Hay, with just enough rain beforehand to keep the grass green and lush!

  11. Caroline says:

    My power would be to extend time (or shrink it as need be!) as there really should be more than 24 hours in a day.

  12. JayneWR says:

    I would like to have the magical power of turning negative thought positive. I could travel around the world and use my power to get people to see the similarities between themselves and their opposites. In the right room with the right people you could end wars.
