Win tickets to 'Hearth' book festival worth £65
Lovereading has teamed up with Gladstone’s Library's Hearth Micro-Festival taking place on 31st October and 1st November to offer two lucky aspiring writers the chance to attend the event’s workshops. Hearth offers book lovers the chance to meet, talk and create with four authors for a weekend of writing-related inspiration, including how to improve writing skills and get published.
The Prize is either a pair of tickets for the Saturday workshops including dinner or a pair of tickets for the Sunday workshops including lunch. Both prizes also include entry to the Saturday evening discussion at 8pm with all four of the Hearth speakers.
The micro-festival ‘Hearth’ is held at Gladstone's Library, Hawarden, in North Wales. The newest addition to the Gladstone's Library calendar and the younger sibling of the annual Gladfest summer literature festival, Hearth began in 2013 and is held in November and February every year. This autumn, Hearth will focus on Welsh writing, although all talks will be in English.
To have a chance of winning one of two pairs of tickets, click below to enter. Please note that this draw is open only for UK residents and is free to enter. Multiple entries from the same email address will only be counted once and the prize does not include transport or accommodation. The draw will close on Sunday 25th October 2015. The winners will be notified on Monday 26th October 2015 and given a choice of event to attend. Please note, if a winner has not responded within 48 hours we will offer the prize to a runner up. Good luck!

The Quantum of Tweed : The Man with the Nissan Micra (Quick Reads) by Conn Iggulden
Albert Rossi has many qualities. He's a man who can spot polyester at a hundred paces. He's the person you'd have on speed dial were you to find yourself at the centre of a tailoring emergency. He has an excellent working knowledge of Bonnie Tyler's back catalogue. These skills are essential to a Gentleman's Outfitter from Eastcote. They are not necessarily on the job description for recruiting an assassin.
When Albert hits an unsuspecting pedestrian whilst listening to 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' in his Nissan Micra he is amazed to escape the inevitable knock on the door from the police. Instead he receives a mysterious phone call from a man who sounds surprisingly like Stephen Hawking telling him that his money will be left in the 'usual' place. At that very moment, Albert Rossi decides to change careers.
Albert Rossi's life is about to get a whole lot more interesting!
