To celebrate the fact that I reached 1000 followers, I’m going to do that thing all book bloggers do and host a giveaway! Now, I could write a long-winding post about how much I adore every one of you lovelies as much as Leonardo DiCaprio wants an Oscar but instead, here are the rules:

  • You must be following me. - Dry those tears, you knew this was a given. This giveaway is exclusive to VIP members only (aka anyone following me) so imagine me saying ominously that I’ll be checking. And who knows, maybe you’ll like my blog. 
  • This giveaway is international since I’ll be purchasing the book through Book Depository.
  • Reblogs and likes both count. Obviously reblog to get more entries but you don’t need me to tell you not to spam your followers (even though I just told you anyway).
  • There will be one winner chosen through a random number generator and I’ll contact you through your ask box.
  • The winner can select any of the above books of their choosing. The book will be in paperback since the economy sucks and I’m a uni student so you do the math.
  • The winner has 48 hours to reply and must be willing to give me their address.
  • Giveaway will end on the 30th August Australian EST.

Good luck and any further questions can be directed here. :)    

I should mention that this is ending very soon as well!

thedoctorsdoctor asked: Dear Mr. Gaiman, I've written my first novel and I've had no success finding a literary agent to represent me. It's always "liked, not loved" or "just not for me". I'm considering self publishing but for someone with nothing more than a part time job and not much in the way of savings, it's quite the investment. I guess what I'm asking is, in the long run, is being a writer worth it? i know you found success in the medium, but I'm terrified. Is the risk worth the reward?

neil-gaiman:

I wouldn’t EVER self-publish in the sense of paying someone to print books. But self-publishing through Amazon or similar as an ebook is a cheap and easy thing to do, and will get it read.
