Jane Urquhart contest winners


Sorry for the delay — and for the ambiguous contest instructions. I ended up throwing all Canadian entries into contests one and two, all international entries into contest 3 and your choices were applied when I chose the prize. The results are:

Contest 1 — Three Jane Urquhart novels:
Away — BernardT
The Stone Carvers — Mike G
A Map of Glass — Margaret

Contest 2 — The New Face of Fiction
Deloume Road — Nena Athar

Contest 3 — International
Sanctuary Line — Janis Goodman

I will be in touch with all winners via email to obtain shipping addresses. My sincere thanks to Random House Canada who are providing the books (and shipping) for Contests 1 and 2 — I am delighted to be underwriting the costs for Contest 3 as part of my objective of promoting Canadian writers to readers outside the country.

Canadian entrants — move on to the next post for an excellent Giller Prize contest that gives you a chance to win autographed copies of all five shortlisted books.

International entrants — stay tuned. Mrs. KfC has agreed to underwrite a Giller contest that will include an international section. You will need to pay attention to Shadow Jury thoughts, I warn in advance.

    Just wanted to say big thank you for providing me with an opportunity to win! Can’t wait to receive my book!


  2. Margaret Says:

    Thank you KfC and Random House! I look forward to reading A Map of Glass.

    I need Morris Schutt to explain to me why this blogger is writing for free and not getting paid. My increased interest in Canadian literature is directly related to this blog!

    Am amazed by the rapid appearance of Sanctuary Line, in Leeds UK – it arrived today and I cannot wait to read it – many thanks

    Janis: Great to read that the courier world is working — I hope you like the book as much as I did (alas, the Real Jury appears to have found some problems).
