Giveaway – Day 8 – Celia Rees & Annabel Pitcher

Only 7 days left until we throw open the gates of Dairy Meadows and welcome you all in.

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 awe-inspiring writers are Celia Rees & Annabel Pitcher.

Celia Rees, best known for her hauntingly memorable historical titles such as Witch Child, has taken on a brand new direction with contemporary thriller This Is Not Forgiveness.  Packing in love, betrayal, faith and violence Celia weaves a taut psychological drama that is perfect teen reading for the summer hols.  Annabel Pitcher’s debut, My Sister Lives On The Mantlepiece, has been creating quite a buzz in the review pages and it’s not hard to see why.  With a unique sense honesty and clarity, this is a one-sitting book – you just won’t be able to put it down.  Both Celia and Annabel wrote lovely blog pieces for Hay Fever this month and we’re so looking forward to welcoming them to Hay.

To be in with a chance to win leave us a comment telling us the most dramatic thing to happen to you so far today.

Good luck!

    Been walking along the beach, saw 2 children in difficulties in the sea and swam out to save them….. well it happened in the part of the story I’ve written this morning. The writing part is the most dramatic thing to happen to me so far today. And I kind of hope that it will only be that dramatic. This day last year, we were driving home and a deer ran out and hit us. As we are about to go to the place today I am hoping for an uneventful trip!
    Have a good day!

    A suprising undramatic day. The highlight was finding ourselves child-free for the whole afternoon.
