Win a Weekend Away

Three Things web image“It was the most unexpected and enchanting sight – slated rooftops of different shapes and sizes stretched before me; the stones grey green and blue, each unique, filled with personality, age and a weather-beaten history. I was in sensory heaven. Everything was so beautiful, so clean, green and fresh…’You’re not in Kansas any more Dorothy,’ I said to myself again…”

Three Things You Need to Know About Rockets is out today coinciding with American Independence Day and what better way to celebrate than to launch the Short Books Summer Competition.

Intrigued by the extract above? Read on here, here and in an independent bookshop near you. And enter our summer competition to win a weekend away for 2* in Wigtown, Scotland aka Jessica’s sensory heaven.

How to enter? It’s easy. Whether it’s sitting on the bus as you commute to work, or curled up on an uncomfortable windowsill desperately trying to catch the last few rays of sunshine, we’d love to know: where’s your favourite place to read?

Just like Jessica has, send us a photo of you and your copy of Three Things You Need to Know About Rockets in your favourite place to read. The book is available on Amazon, at Waterstones or at an independent bookshop near you.
