Announcing the Claudia Gray ‘Hourglass’ Giveaway Winners

Hey Hourglass entrants!

I was totally overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of the entries received for the Claudia Gray Hourglass giveaway. As a result I spent the weekend judging and agonising over ‘the longlist’, then ‘the shortlist’, and finally, I whittled the list down (with much more agonising and second-guessing my choices) to the five winners who are each going to receive a copy of Hourglass.

I definitely feel content with my final decision, and if you didn’t win this time, never fear! If I look into my crystal ball I see more giveaways in the future…

Anyhoo, the readers were asked to write in 25 words or less:

“What’s the best OR worst thing about being immortal?”

So, without further ado, here are the five winners (in no particular order):

Chris, who said:

“Having to wear the clothing of the period to fit in; from corsets to tracky dackies. Could be fun in some eras, definitely horrible in others.”

Dean, who said:

“The best thing is that I’d never have to say …. “so many lovely women, so little time …””

Lesley, who said:

“Worst thing about being immortal is that you stop growing and maturing. I appreciate my mind and body more at 37 compared to my 20s.”

Jodie, who said:

“Immortal forever sounds a dream,
but that lily white skin! I’d scream!”

Courtenay, who said:

“The worst thing about being immortal would be hiding the fact – could you imagine how many people would want ‘in’ on the secret!


Expect an email from me soon, guys, and congratulations!
