Well, the GODSGRAVE ARC competition has come to an end, winners have been notified by email (they have til Friday to get back to me with their mailing addies, or I’ll draw new winners). I’m very chuffed to say it was a HUGE success, and between us, we managed to raise over $2,700 for the mighty Sea Shepherd.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, each and every one of you, for donating to the cause. It doesn’t matter how much money you contributed, the point is, you contributed, and for that, you have my deepest appreciation.
If the oceans die, we die, and every little bit helps.
Thanks for making this contest a huge success, I’m definitely going to be doing this again in future!
Those who follow me on twitter and instagram will know my amazing publishers at Harper Voyager UK sent me a bunch of GODSGRAVE ARCs recently. After asking around on the twitters how I should give these things away, the awesome @AimeeGoodreads suggested:
Which is about the coolest fucking idea I’ve ever heard. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do:
THIS COMPETITION IS OPEN INTERNATIONALLY

Sea Shepherd are currently celebrating their 40th year of fighting on the frontline of marine conservation. From combating illegal whaling to cleaning up oceanic pollution to campaigning for greater governmental involvement in oceanic protection, there is no organization in the world doing more to safeguard the future of the world’s oceans.
IF THE OCEANS DIE, WE DIE.

GOOD LUCK PEOPLES!
