For those of you who don’t know about it, I have started a competition called the Golden Arrow Prize. Readers of this website earn “points” or Golden Arrows (GAs) for helping me to promote my Robin Hood books, either on the internet or in other ways. For example, some people make sure that they always retweet my Twitter messages, others post images of the book covers on websites, some have been lobbying libraries in the USA to stock the books, one kind chap has posted a review of my first book, Outlaw, on his electronic newsletter . . . you get the gist. When you’ve done something you think deserves a GA, contact me by email and tell me about it, and I’ll put you down for one, if I agree that the promotion merits such an awesome award. My decision is final when it comes to awarding points, and I’m working towards having a permanent score board on this website where people can check regularly to see how well they are doing. The winner of the competition, the person with the most number of GAs on the first of July next year, will get a free signed, inscribed hardback copy of Warlord.
This is the state of play in the Golden Arrow competition as of 5th December 2011
