Guys, I have something exciting for all of you.
Many readers of this blog will know that I write – both blog posts and books – on various topics, but the one subject I keep returning to is mythology. I have a deep personal love for it. I could talk about it for hours, I could write books about it (which in fact I have), and I regularly have dreams about myself riding a chariot in shining armour.
I do it quite well – both the dreaming and the chariot riding – as long as I’m wearing my glasses.
So anyway, this morning, waking up to rude reality after yet another such dream had been shattered, I asked myself: why not do a Mahabharata-themed giveaway on the blog? I’ve never done one, and since many of the people who frequent these pages are fellow mythology-lovers, it could turn out to be quite some fun.
Well, we’ll see.
What is the prize?
I have a list of seven books – some fiction, some nonfiction – based on the Mahabharata, and I am giving away one copy each to seven lucky winners. If you win a book that you’d already read, just call out and I will give you a book of your choice.
I’m listing the seven books here, in the form of thumbnails. I’m linking them all to their respective Goodreads pages so that you can look them up. Each one of them tackles the source material differently, and will bring a unique angle to your knowledge of the Great Epic. Needless to say, all seven are must reads.
How do you enter?
All you need to enter the giveaway is an email address and a first name. You have both, don’t you?
1. Click on the button below and enter your email address and first name. Doing so will sign you up for my mailing list, which will make it easier for me to contact you for future giveaways and contests like this. It will also enter you for this giveaway.
2. If you would like to enter TWICE, or if you’re already on the mailing list and you’d like to participate, leave a comment at the bottom of the post and tell me what your favourite Mahabharat book is and why.
Since this is a ‘throw your number into a hat’ kind of giveaway, being a mailing list member AND leaving a comment will double your chances of winning. Obvious, but it had to be spelled out.
When does the giveaway end?
Last date for entries is Friday, the 13th of March, 2015. Winners will be announced on Sunday the 15th.
So hurry, guys! Let the entries roll in. Good luck!
