Paris is so Pinteresting

In case you didn’t get the August News & Nonsense, there’s a really fab contest you need to know about.  You can win an iPad mini–yes, a real one, brand new–that’s been pre-loaded with my novels.  All you have to do is start up a Pinterest page along the lines of the one I’m doing, here, and stick up anything you come across on the web that has to do with excerpt one or excerpt two, or the video, or the interactive map, or just 1929 Paris in general.

The full contest rules are here, and although I’m afraid it’s only for US residents (since it’s sponsored by Bantam and Picador, my US publishers) I understand that my British publisher, Allison & Busby, plan something fun for their edition of The Bones of Paris, later this fall.  More on that later.

In the meantime, the rules are here, my Pinterest page is here, and you have until Sept 6th to send me your Pinterest URL.

Let the Pinning begin!

    I am already learning so much about 1929 paris and read the excerpts … Cant wait for the new book!

    I would love to win all of your books! I am trying to slowly buy them (grad school budget being all that it is). I love your work.

    The interactive map is just fabulous! I love it all the more because I lived in Paris for almost five years during the 1980s and I’ve been to most of the places on it! (Albeit 60 years after Harris Stuyvesant!)

    This sounds fabulous but alas I live in Eastern Canada! I would loved to have entered. I cannot wait to read your new novel!

      Hi Alexandra–you could still enter, just not qualify for the main prize since that comes from the publisher. That still leaves one of the hardbacks! Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I’ll clarify on the blog.

    sounds like a good book. I would like to read it. I have not read any of your books before but they sound very interesting.

    I have not read any of your books before, but this one seems interesting, Looks like there is another author to add to my list.
