Day 9: Read & WIN

Book Cover

Bestseller Flowers For The Dead, by Barbara Copperthwaite, is a ‘Book of the Year’

I’m very proud to announce that Flowers For The Dead has been chosen by  a second book blogger as one of their top books of 2015.

There are some truly wonderful books on the list, which is on Being Anne. Anne Williams, of Being Anne, is also an Amazon Top 500 reviewer, so she really knows her stuff. It’s a huge privilege to be included as one of the Books of the Year, especially as Flowers For The Dead only came out in September. If my partner bought me five gold rings for Christmas, I couldn’t be happier!

To read Anne’s list in full, go to Being Anne

  1. Can YOU spot today’s Christmas-related reference in this blog? If you can, email it to to enter my competition – and YOU could have a character named after you in my next novel!

MORE WAYS TO WIN! Three lucky people will have characters named after them in my next novel. They might be a baddie, or a nosy neighbour, they might even be bumped off, who can say, but they could have YOUR name.

To be in with a chance of winning this unique prize, all you have to do is take part in my Christmas countdown search. Every day for a fortnight I’ll be hiding a Christmas-related reference in a post on this blog, or somewhere over on my website All you have to do to enter is email me that days’s reference (e.g., I might randomly mention seeing ‘three wise men’) at

You can enter as many times as you like. The more days you take part, the more entries you’ll accrue – so the greater your chance of winning!

I’m also running similar competitions across Twitter (you can follow me @BCopperthwait) and my Facebook page ( BarbaraCopperthwaite) and you’re free to enter those as many times as you like, too.

Over on Facebook, every day for a fortnight I’ll be posting a fun, easy question based either on Christmas, me, or my books. Just ‘like’ the post and leave your (correct!) answer in the comments section, and you’ll be entered into the prize draw. 

Over at Twitter, you simply have to retweet me using the hashtag #FlowersForTheDead. Each retweet is an entry and, again, you can enter as often as you want.

Good luck to everyone! 

* The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve
