Publication day for My Dream of You has finally arrived!
I wanted to throw an online launch party which would be suitable to be held during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, and I decided that this meant champagne and the other lovely prizes listed below for my party guests:
1. A Bothams of Whitby champagne afternoon tea hamper custom made for the My Dream of You launch party. The contents of hamper are: Apricot & Orange Teabread, Butter Rice Madeira Cake, Butter Syrup Tea Biscuits, Apricot and Almond Jam 8oz, Resolution Tea Box 80 bags, Small wooden tray, 750ml bottle of Fratelli Berlucchi (2006) Brut and a limited edition (signed) paperback copy of MDOY (unfortunately this prize is open to UK entrants only due to complications with posting all the contents of this hamper to other countries)
2. One of five limited edition (signed) paperback copies of MDOY (open to worldwide entrants).
3. A character named after you in my next novel (open to worldwide entrants).
4. One of 15 MDOY fridge magnets (open to worldwide entrants).
There are 3 ways to get your name in for one of the prizes above:
1. Leave a ‘Pick Me Please’ comment and the number of your preferred prize
2. Share the link to this post from my Facebook author page with the number of your preferred prize.
3. Tweet the link to this post using the #MDOY hashtag, the number of your preferred prize and copy me (@djkirkby) in.
You can do any or all of the above until midnight (BST) today. The winners will be announced on my blog on Sunday June 11th. Good luck everyone!

Ultimately I write books so you lovely readers can enjoy them (I am ever so grateful to you for doing so) but it takes a lot of research and feedback to get a book written, and for this reason I have thanked several individuals in the acknowledgements section.
However, I also want to say thank you to my publisher for all his patience, support and thoughtfulness because working with a dyslexic author presents unique challenges and whilst I cannot change the way I am, I do appreciate all his efforts. He refers to My Dream of You (on social networking site no less) as “an absolutely fabulous, fantastic novel” which makes me feel very proud.
Finally I would like to thank the following splendid people who have offered to help with this launch:
