Two weeks ago, advanced copies of my book were mailed from my address in London and never made it through the French post… fingers crossed, I’m still hoping those copies turn up. So, on Monday a new shipping was sent and tracked and it’s arrived! I’m actually holding my book!!!


To celebrate, I’m giving away my first signed advanced copy. These signed proofs are going to be pretty rare, (especially if the first package doesn’t show up!)

How can you win it?!

I’m going to make it really easy for you! All you need to do is like my AUTHOR facebook page (Claire Merle, Author) and or sign up to follow this blog. The contest will be points-based so you can get a total of 2 points, (one for following the FB page, one for following the blog) to be entered into the virtual hat of to win the prize.

 The contest is open internationally and will end on April 10th, at 10 a.m. French time. The winner will be announced later on in the day.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on the blog or my AUTHOR fb page to let me know you’ve entered. (If you already follow the blog or the fb page that’s fine. Your entries will still be counted. Just let me know!)

UPDATE: As some of you have already begun tweeting about the giveaway, I’ve decided to give an extra point to anyone who tweets it, with a link back to here. (Make sure you put @clairemerle on the tweet so I know to give you an extra point!) Thanks!

    1. Kai, you are top of the list I sent to my publisher for a review copy. (ebook.) I don’t think they’ve started sending them out yet to anyone but press. But if you haven’t got it by the end of April, let me know!!

  12. Like everyone else, I heard about your book through the YA Scavenger hunt and it seems like it will be an excellent read. I liked your FB page and I’m following your blog. BTW: what is the story behind your background pic? It looks really interesting. 🙂

    1. Hey Christella,
      Thanks for following & entering to win a signed copy of The Glimpse. The background pic is something from the book trailer video — there was a sneak preview of the trailer during the Scavenger Hunt, but it won’t be officially released for another couple of weeks. I’ll put it up on my blog when it’s out!

  13. hi Claire thx for this comp… yes the YASavenger hunt made me notice you and ‘Glimpse’ and i have a huge list of books to get now 🙂 and im soooo hungry 😀
