200 Followers Q and A Competition

In celebration of reaching 200 followers, and in thanks for all their wonderful comments and support, I've decided to hold a competition. There are four prizes of $15 (£10) Amazon vouchers. As well as having the chance to win a voucher, you'll also, I hope, get to know me a little better, because you get to ask me a question - any question you like.

The rules are simple - you must be a follower of my blog and have asked me a question in the comment box for this post. You can ask any question but please keep it to one question per follower.

You have until midnight Sunday 6th February (GMT) to ask your question and shortly after that I'll start answering them. All participants will be entered into to choose the four winners. Please feel free to tweet, blog and Facebook about this competition or use the image above to make a link to this post.

So, ask away. But in case you're wondering, I don't have a picture of William Shatner that I kiss every night before bed. Honest.

  20. 200+ followers! Awesome!

    My question.... Ok, I'm assuming you made the mock covers on the side bar for your WIPs? Why did you pick the picture of the hand for DREAMING OF SLEEP? Like, is it symbolic for something in the story? (Um, that's one question, just extended!)
