I know it's been a while since I rapped at ya, but I've been busy preparing my book for publication (should be at the printers now), moving house (thanks, floodwater!) and generally being devoid of ideas (...).

But here I am again! Why? Well, I just wanted to let you know about a great competition that my lovely employer Avid Reader is running with my lovely publisher Text, where you can win a bumper book pack from Text and a $100 voucher from Avid. All you have to do is create a book trailer for my book, The Ottoman Motel. It's up to you what's in the trailer, the only restriction is that it must be under 2 minutes long. You can read a sample chapter of the book here for inspiration, but otherwise go crazy!

Email your trailer (or a YouTube/Vimeo link) to by April 15 to be in the running!

Because I like you, and I want to give you the best chance of winning the great prize, here is a secret list of things I enjoy in book trailers:

Exploding Cosmic Polar Bears

Energetic Shrimp

Alcoholic Vervet Monkeys

Get to it!

If you have any questions about the book, please send me through a comment here, or at the Official Ottoman Motel Sanctioned and Verified Facebook Page (become a fan, why don't you?)
