Give-away The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta...

So... what can I get that you want?

I'm talking one the best Aussie YA books not yet available anywhere else in the planet?

The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta


And yesterday I was cruising around my shops and bought one more copy for one of my followers...

I will post it to you wherever you live.

I don't know when it will be available everywhere else (sometime in 2011?)

And I don't know if it will have a different cover or not?

But there is no denying how HOT this Aussie cover is:



And it comes complete with our lovely British spelling.
Which means extra "u's" and less "z's" :)  So, you know, BONUS!

Here's the deal

My 200 Follower give-away (whoo hoo!) is because I love all you guys hard. And I wish I could send you all something.

But.

For now there will be two winners. 

One winner will win a brand new sexy copy of Melina Marchetta's The Piper's Son (featuring Tom and the gang from Saving Francesca). Open Internationally
And the other winner can choose any book from The Book Depository to the value of $15 (Australian) Open internationally (to wherever The Book Depository ships)

our Aussie money :)

Please indicate in the form which prize you'd prefer to win...

Open until November 9, Winners announced Nov 10

  3. Yay for 200 followers Nomes!

    That cover is awesome. I loved having it 'face-out' on the shelf when I was working in the bookstore. Did you know that it is also the cover for Pete Murray's debut album Feeler from 2004?
