And the winners are…

Thank you to everyone who took the trouble to enter my competition to win a copy of “To See the Moon So Clearly“. I think it is great writing (and hopefully the translation conveys this), and I am so pleased to have made it available to Anglophone readers.

The competition is over, and you can see the names of the lucky winners in the widget below (if you’re on that list, you should have already received an email from me – let me know if that hasn’t reached you). If you weren’t lucky enough to win a copy, the book is available from many outlets. You can get 30% off the price of a print copy from Lulu until November 24: use code FLASH30.

Relaunch and giveaway!

So here we are in the new place, and not a moment too soon, really. I suppose, in the lingo, that means Ian Appleby 2.0, but I’m not feeling sufficiently cybernetic to fully embrace that notion; nonetheless, this is the official site relaunch. There’s no doubt about it, the old place was looking a bit tired and, as one friend commented, the colour scheme made me look more like a healthcare provider than a translator. Hopefully, the new layout seems brighter and easier-to-read, and at last I have a logo that better conveys what it is that I do (thanks to Sam Ross for the illustration, and apologies to John Tenniel for the same…)To See the Moon So Clearly front cover

To celebrate the fresh new look, I’m delighted to offer a fresh new book: I am giving away five copies of “To See the Moon So Clearly” up for grabs. It’s a handsome little volume of three short stories by Gai Sever – why not whet your appetite? To enter, simply complete one or more of the tasks in the box below that correspond to the social media you enjoy using (I’m really not expecting anyone to do everything on the list). Some tasks ask you to add information as evidence you have completed it, so please remember to do that, otherwise your entry may be invalidated. The giveaway ends on the dot of midnight on November 21, and I will contact the winners shortly after.

Facebook rules forbid me from offering points in return for sharing this on your timeline, but if you should see fit to do so anyway, I would be jolly grateful. As for Twitter, what the box doesn’t say is that you can tweet once per day for extra points each time: I leave it to your discretion as to how much tolerance your followers may have… Good luck!
