I’ve been involved in all kinds of blog tours and promotions since I began blogging, but I love this one from Harper Collins for The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor. No guest post, no interview, no extract, but a chance for one lucky UK person to win a paperback copy of The Cottingley Secret and a box of fairy related gifts including some sparkling wine, a jar of fairy lights and some fairy dust filled hanging glass ornaments.
All you have to do to be in with a chance to win a box like mine is head over to my Twitter feed @Lindahill50Hill and retweet one of my tweets about this giveaway by midnight tonight for your name to go into the hat. A winner will be drawn at random tomorrow Saturday 27th January 2018.

The Cottingley Secret
1917: When two young cousins, Frances Griffiths and Elsie Wright from Cottingley, England, announce they have photographed fairies at the bottom of the garden, their parents are astonished. But when the great novelist, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, endorses the photographs’ authenticity, the girls become a sensation; their discovery offering something to believe in amid a world ravaged by war.
One hundred years later… When Olivia Kavanagh finds an old manuscript and a photograph in her late grandfather’s bookshop she becomes fascinated by the story of the two young girls who mystified the world. As Olivia is drawn into events a century ago, she becomes aware of the past and the present intertwining, blurring her understanding of what is real and what is imagined. As she begins to understand why a nation once believed in fairies, will Olivia find a way to believe in herself?
