WIN TICKETS TO SEE LEE CHILD LIVE IN PERSON!
International mega star thriller writer Lee Child's 61 HOURS jumped straight to #1 on the bestsellers list when it was released in New Zealand last week, and next month the man himself is touring the country for a series of author events and book signings. See here for his full schedule - five cities, six author events, and 13 short bookstore appearances.
Tickets to some of the events, where Lee Child will speak, and attendees will have a chance to ask questions, meet him, and get their books signed, are already selling out fast.
However, courtesy of the event organisers, Crime Watch has two (2) double-passes to giveaway to the Takapuna event on Sunday 11 April 2010 - the first of the six events on Lee Child's tour. This event is being held at 7pm at the Rosmini College Auditorium, 26 Dominion St, Takapuna. Tickets are $15 from http://www.eventfinder.co.nz/
It will be a truly fantastic evening, as it being MC-ed by highly-regarded former publisher, books editor, book awards judge, reviewer, and industry commentator Graham Beattie. Given Beattie's well-deserved status within the industry, and the fact he enjoys reading and critiquing crime fiction and has been a longtime reader of the Reacher books, there could be no one better to host the first Lee Child event of the tour. Incidentally, it is also the I have chosen to attend - for that very reason.
The Crime Watch giveaway is of course only available to those living in the Auckland area, or willing to travel to attend the event on the night. You may enter the draw by making a comment on this post, noting your full name and answering one of the two giveaway questions.
You do not need to place any address details in your comment, as the tickets will be held at the door on the night for each of the two winners. The draw for the two double-passes will be made at 5pm on Wednesday 7 April 2010, so you have just over ten days to enter the competition.
