Stone Mattress – nine wicked tales from the queen of invention, Margaret Atwood – is out now in paperback! To celebrate the mischief and imagination of the book, we’re launching a blog tour with a twist – and nine separate opportunities to win a copy signed by Margaret Atwood herself.
There are nine stops on the tour, and each one is themed around one of the nine tales – so, for example, for the tale ‘The Dead Hand Loves You’, about a student who unwittingly writes a horror masterpiece about a sentient hand, you could win a signed copy plus a nail varnish set. For ‘Alphinland’, about an aging writer of fantasy novels, you could win a signed copy plus a (bright yellow) fountain pen. For ‘Dark Lady’, about a pair of twins, you could win a twin-set of signed copies of the book – one for yourself, one to give to someone you like.
We will announce the full list of locations next week, but for now, this week’s stops are below. Enter them all to quadruple your chance of winning!
