Win A Signed Copy of Fiona Sussman’s Shifting Colours

We hope you enjoyed this week’s book drop of Fiona Sussman’s books! If you missed it or weren’t lucky enough to pick up one in a bus stop or in our other secret hiding places, here’s your chance to win a special copy for you to keep!

When the author graciously donated her books to Books on the Bus NZ, we asked her to sign two copies. We will be giving those away today — one through Facebook and another one through Twitter.

For a chance to win a signed copy of SHIFTING COLOURS, please comment below (in this blog post only) about why you love books and why you want this book to be part of your collection. We will choose a winner on Friday, 14th of April.

Shifting Colours is set against the violet apartheid South Africa to the late 20th Century Britain — tracing the lives of a mother and daughter separated by heart-rendering circumstances. It is a story of secrets, love and loss. The book was part of Amazon’s Rising Stars of 2014 Pick as well as in Sainsbury’s Best Debut Novel Collection for 2014.

We hope the winner enjoys this wonderful read. Please comment below to enter the competition!

The Golden Ticket Promo

Starting 01 April, we are launching the Golden Ticket promo. This is our nod to Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Like that childhood favourite, book finders may find a golden ticket in their books.

The ticket will be equivalent to different prizes. It will have instructions to contact Books on the Bus NZ to find out what the prize will be. For our very first Golden Ticket, we worked with Auckland Live, who provided a family pass to The 13-Storey Treehouse production.

The ticket was inserted in the book version and we did a themed drop for children’s books for two days. It was finally picked up in Glendale Mall! Unlike our usual book drops, we had to make sure that the finder would have kids — thus, this was a bit different from our usual drops.
