THE TWELVE Out in Paperback Today! Win Signed Copies of COLLUSION and THE TWELVE!

Thursday, June 24, 2010, 9:59 PM

The paperback edition of THE TWELVE was officially published today by Vintage Books, and they're doing a big old marketing campaign to get it out there. Part of that campaign is the lovely poster pictured here which should be appearing in train stations all around Britain and Ireland right about now.

To celebrate this fact, how about a contest? It's simple: if you see one of these posters on your travels, take a photo and email it to! The first three senders will each receive special signed limited edition proof copies of not only THE TWELVE, but its sequel, COLLUSION, which won't be in the shops for another month.

There's no closing date as such, so keep sending those pics...

Win Proof Copies of THE TWELVE and COLLUSION

Friday, June 04, 2010, 2:12 PM

I'm giving away five signed pairs of proofs of the Vintage paperback edition of THE TWELVE and an advance copy of its sequel, COLLUSION. The special paperback edition of THE TWELVE is a very limited run and has never been for sale, and you can also get to read COLLUSION two months before anyone else!

To enter, you need a Twitter account to answer a very simple question: Which major literary prize did the American edition of THE TWELVE, called THE GHOSTS OF BELFAST, win? The answer is right on my home page at! To enter, just tweet the following, replacing the asterisks with your answer:

THE TWELVE, aka THE GHOSTS OF BELFAST, by @stuartneville won the *** ******* ***** Book Prize!

Remember, your tweet has to be exactly those words, including my Twitter name, @stuartneville, or I won't see your entry.

The contest closes at 12:00 noon UK time on Monday 7th of June, after which five entries will be chosen at random. Good luck!
