We all love a competition, don't we? And now there's a special Pellinor comp, to celebrate the US release of The Singing, in which you can win a copy of the rather smart galleys Candlewick distributes before the books are printed in their final form. All you have to do is to visit the updated (and rather beautiful) Candlewick website for the books. (Afternote: Actually, they've done alot to the website, and there are all sorts of unexpected goodies there - it's well worth a browse!)

Not to mention - which I only just noticed - the chance to download an exclusive short story, The Friendship, in which you can get a glimpse of what happened when Cadvan met Saliman.

So here goes, hot off the press from Candlewick Books:

You can win an advance reader's copy of The Singing!

Please visit the newly updated series website, The first ten people to respond correctly to the following Pellinor trivia question based on new content on the website will receive one galley each, courtesy of Candlewick Press. The publisher will contact you individually via the email address you supply for your mailing/shipping information if you are a winner. Post your answers in the comments below - and don't forget to include an email address so Candlewick can contact you.

QUESTION: How many times does author Alison Croggon say she drafted the final book in the series?

Please note: No purchase necessary. All entrants must be at least 14 years of age. Entries must be posted/received no later than April 1, 2009. Galleys will be shipped to the winners no later than April 15, 2009.
