Calling Mrs Christmas!

Hi Gang!

We have a fab giveaway for readers who are already signed up to my newsletter. My latest book, Calling Mrs Christmas, is out on 1 August in hardback and as an eCalling_Mrs_Christmas - Coverbook. I think it’s one of my best books and my publisher and I want to get a great buzz going for it before the paperback comes out at the end of October. Can you help with that?

We have twenty-five advance hardback copies to give away to my most keen readers and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Do you think you could be a Team Matthews’ Reader? Are you keen to tell all your friends about my books? Do you put reviews on Goodreads or Amazon? Do you love to Tweet or share on Facebook? Would you send a note to me to say what you think of it? If so, you could grab an advance reader copy of my latest book, Calling Mrs Christmas. All you have to do is promise to share your love of it with as many people as possible! Simples!

As soon as your newsletter arrives, check for details how to be entered for the giveaway. But you need to be quick, the deadline is midnight on Tuesday 23 July!

If you’re not signed up for my newsletter then make sure that you are and you won’t miss fab offers in the future.

Much love. Carole : ) xx

        I am signed up for the newsletter but my email was hacked last week and I lost my saved items. Please let me know how to enter.

        By the way – my husband walked up Skiddaw last week – it nearly killed him.

    Would like to enter for “Team Matthews Reader” for “Calling Mrs. Christmas” but cannot find out how on the site. May be I have just missed it somewhere. Love your books (funny and up lifting at different times). Would like to share even more with other people. First started to read your books when I picked one up at our “Duck Race” off the book stall, and loved it.

    Keep up the good writing – wish I could do it!

    Linda Collins.

    I live in Los Angeles, California and really hope you find a way to offer some of these great treats for your American fans! We love you here in the U.S.A. too and would love to be able to be included in on some of the great contest and advance reading on your new releases you have going on.
    I can’t help but feel a little left out, but I live in hope, maybe sometime in the near future?


    • Carole Matthews says:

      Hi Lydia – Most of my giveaways are worldwide, but we can’t send physical books due to territory restrictions and also the high cost of postage. The free short story ebook downloads are always available worldwide for all devices. Glad you enjoy the books. C : ) xx
