Competition #1!


Are you feeling brainy? Creative, perhaps? Maybe just plain old lucky... well, good news! I'm starting a competition today and YOU could be the winner.

You might remember last year, I ran a few competitions to celebrate Over You being published, and oooh, it was very exciting (well, it was for me, anyway). So now that I've got a shelf full of copies of Hens Reunited, I thought I'd do the same again. The prize this week is.... drum roll... a signed early copy of Hens Reunited, deliverered to your front door, waaaay before it hits the shops on August 7th and anyone else can get their hands on it. (I know, I know, calm yourselves if you can.)

All you have to do is come up with an anagram using the letters in the following words: LUCY DIAMOND HENS REUNITED. That's ACDDDEEEHILMNNNOESTUY if it makes life any easier. You've got until six pm this Sunday evening (26th July) to leave your entry in the comments box. As before, when the competition closes, I will print out all the entries anonymously and ask my completely impartial husband to judge the best. I'll post the winner's book on Monday. Usual terms and conditions apply blah blah.

Clear as crystal? Excellent. Let the anagramming begin!

Fingers crossed!

Lucy Diamond said...

Hurrah! Four entries already - excellent stuff, ladies. You can enter as many times as you want, by the way. Keep trying! x

Sunny cat led home indeed.

Is this an anagram at all? My apology is that I am not a native speaker :-).
Congratulations on your new book!!

Lucy Diamond said...

Lily, that is excellent! It even relates to the book (well, kind of anyway)! Well done, that woman.

Selina, hello and welcome!

Everyone else: Keep working on the anagrams!

Captain Black said...

I hope it's not cheating to do several, but here goes:

I demand yu in underclothes!
Hens duly under medication.
Menu under hedonistic, nuder lady.


Apologies for some dodgy spelling.

EnglishGirl said...

Ok, here's mine, based (I hope!) on the book:
'Y did rodent men shun u Alice?'

Looking forward to reading the new book. The last one got me through a particularly trying 3 hour airport delay!

Pat Posner said...

This is fun, lots of good ones here.

Here's my two:

Undiced nuts dye hair lemon

Um! Nice horny lads tied nude

Lucy Diamond said...

Captain Black - a triple whammer, good 'uns each and every one of them!

EnglishGirl - fabulous and indeed very pertinent to the book, well done! (and glad you liked my last book, thank you x)

Pat - aka last year's winner! - I was hoping you were going to enter, and you haven't let me down. Hurrah!

I now declare this competition is CLOSED. I will post the result tomorrow morning. Just hope you can bear the tension... will you be able to sleep tonight, do you think?!

Lucy Diamond said...

PS Feel I should warn you, the judge has a wicked hangover today so let's hope he can READ all the entries let alone pick the best one. Good luck everyone!

Apartamentos de férias na MadeiraOoh - I keep answering and new messages keep popping up! Spookeh.
Hello Claire, I'm starting to think a massive TBR pile is a guilty pleasure shared by many... mine is heaped on top of a bookcase near our bedroom window and is now threatening to block out all the natural light!
