My Dream of You prizes galore

DJ Kirkby has a new novel out today called My Dream of You (Punked Books), the follow up to 2010’s Without Alice.

In this digital release, on a beautiful summer’s day Betty lets love carry her a step too far. That exquisite sun dappled afternoon becomes one of her best memories but also the catalyst for the worst experience of her life. Now elderly, Betty has been running from her past since she was a teenager, and it’s about to catch up with her. Will the experience be as awful as she fears or wonderful beyond imagining?

To celebrate the release of My Dream of You, DJ Kirkby has some gorgeous scrummy prizes to give away.

Today (5th June), everyone who leaves a ‘pick me’ comment on the My Dream of You (MDOY) online launch party blog post, and / or shares the post from her Facebook author page and / or Tweets using the #MDOY hashtag making sure to copy @djkirkby in, gets their name entered into a draw for the following goodies:
