Want to be the star of Anthony’s next book?
Anthony will choose one winner to be the main character of the next Gravespeakers book and it could be you!! Ruth McCarthy from Ballybunion won this amazing prize last year and became the star of book 2. The winner this year will become the main character of book 5. Gravespeakers has six books in the series – Maria, Ruth, Crispin and Jack are the first four.
Win the competition and you will learn how an author puts together a book from start to finish and assist in the promotion of the book through the media if you wish. If you are the lucky winner, Anthony will meet you and your parents/guardians to discuss the book and how you would like your character to develop.
There are two ways to win the prize:
Route One: Review One of the Books: 5 finalists
1. Buy Anthony’s current book ‘Gravespeakers: Jack’, ‘Gravespeakers Crispin’, ‘Gravespeakers Ruth’ or ‘Gravespeakers: Maria’. You can buy it on Amazon or you can buy it direct from the author.
2. Write a short review of the book
3. Send your review to Anthony and he’ll put it up on his website or post your review on Amazon and give the book your rating out of 5.
Route Two: Exceptional Ability: 2 finalists
Anthony will visit over 40 primary schools this year. He will choose two children as finalists who he feels they have exceptional potential and ability, which he spots during his creative writing workshops and public speaking and presenting workshops.
“Anyone can win this prize,” Anthony said. “Even if you think your writing or your spelling isn’t great, it doesn’t matter. Tell me what you think of the book, either by email or in person, when I visit your school. I’m looking for something or someone special that catches my eye.”
Winner will be chosen on Friday, 30th March 2018.
