Manga Sample Winners & Tea Info

So there was only a dozen entries into the special Manga sample contest.

They were lovely lovely entries. I was very impressed. As ever, I picked winners through random numbers. This sample of the manga is a pretty cool prize, there are no others like it and it can't be bought. However, I only have four to give away.

Without further ado the winners are . . .

If you were unable to get a ticket to the tea I will be signing and milling about, with possibly a small Q&A, at Borderlands Books later that same night, Sunday Feb. 26 starting at 6pm.

If you are unable to make either this or any of my other signings, you can order signed (sometimes even dedicated) copies of both Timeless and Soulless Vil. 1 manga (plus many of my other books) through Borderlands and they will ship to anywhere in the world within reason (plus shipping costs). Calling them is best for specific requests: 888.893.4008

"He was too bourgeois, claimed Watson. He wore flannel trousers and a blue blazer, and walked a poodle They had a row and they stopped meeting."
