“At Christmas the swineherd Garwulf brought me one of his fattest boars as a gift. We slaughtered it in the yard and roasted it over the hearth in my hall. The whole village came and we feasted like kings on its meat for three days, until there was nothing left but bone. There was drinking and there was dancing; the hall was hung with holly branches and the fire burnt brightly through those long nights.”
–Tancred, The Splintered Kingdom, ch. 17
To celebrate the festive season, and following the success of the competitions I ran earlier in the year, I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be running another series of giveaways. Starting on Monday 1st December, each week I’ll be offering up 2 signed copies of my books to lucky readers.
The rules are simple! The competition will run on Twitter, where you can already find me tweeting about 1066 and all things relating to the Middle Ages (@JamesAitcheson).
All you have to do in order to enter the prize draws and be in with a chance of winning is RT one of my competition tweets. You’ll be able to tell which ones they are, because they’ll look something like this:

Each week’s giveaway will run for 48 hours, from midday GMT on the Monday to 11.59am GMT on the Wednesday. You can enter as many times as you like during that time. The prize draws are open to UK residents only. Here’s what will be on offer each week:
2 x signed paperback of Sworn Sword.
2 x signed paperback of The Splintered Kingdom.
2 x signed paperback of Knights of the Hawk.
At the close of each week’s giveaway I’ll use a random number generator to select the two lucky winners from all the entries received. I’ll post the results of the competitions both on Twitter and here on my blog, and will contact the winners via direct message (DM) so that they can send me their addresses.
Good luck, and happy tweeting!
