15 Days Without a Book! Countdown to Publication #1: Win a copy of 15 Days Without a Head.

15 Days Without a Head will be in bookshops in 15 days time. By way of celebration, I will be publishing a new post here every day for the 15 days leading up to publication on January 5th. The idea is to provide a few bonus items, such as you'd expect to find on the extras disc of a DVD – except these will be available before the main feature of course! 

So – in the spirit of St. Thomas’s Day*, I’m going to start by giving away a signed (or unsigned, if you prefer) copy of the book. (Thanks to my publisher, Oxford University Press for donating a copy).

> Sorry, folks! This competition has now closed <

To be entered into the draw, simply click here to email the answer to following question:

Which of the following creatures can live for days without a head?

A – Chicken
B – Cockroach
C – Crab

The closing date for entries is midnight December 30th, 2011. The result will be announced here on New Year’s Eve. 

Unfortunately due to postage costs, I can only accept entries from the UK.

* For those who don't know the history of St. Thomas's Day (I didn't) An old English tradition on December 21st, was for women and children to go 'Thomasing' or 'gooding' around the homes of their neighbours for food and money towards their Christmas celebrations.
