Join THE GLIMPSE book party!

7 Jun

My book officially launches today! (Throws confetti). After years of dreaming about this, it seems pretty surreal.

80s Party--Confetti angel

To celebrate The Glimpse book birthday, I’ve decided I want to do something you can all take part in. So I’m going to be doing a giveaway with a special, one-of-a-kind Gimpse Birthday Prize.


A star necklace (an important icon in The Glimpse) and a signed copy of the book.



To win this gorgeous star necklace AND signed copy of The Glimpse all you have to do is:

a.) For 1 point tweet: The Glimpse @clairemerle is celebrating her first book birthday TODAY! Join the party & win prizes:

b.) For 1 point: Like my author facebook page and leave a comment to let me know you want an extra point for the Glimpse birthday prize.

The winner will be chosen at random tomorrow, 8th June at 10.a.m. French time.

IN ADDITION to celebrate The Glimpse birthday, Β for TODAY only, I will send anyone who purchases a copy of The Glimpse a signed bookplate!

Email me at, with a copy of your receipt dated 7th June. (Doesn’t matter where you purchase from as long as the receipt in the 7th June & the name of the book is on the receipt.) The book must be paperback (otherwise you’ll have nothing to stick the bookplate into!) Though purchase must be made between 7th June, you can email me with your receipt up until 10th June.

If you are purchasing online you can buy from these retailers: U.K., U.S., Β Australia, Canada, Germany, Worldwide.
