Are You Feeling Lucky?

Okay, I know it’s Friday 13th but I’m going to give you a chance to get lucky, win some lovely prizes – and help a very worthy cause into the bargain.

Today I’m launching a competition called Unlock The Vault in aid of the disaster relief charity ShelterBox.

Prizes on offer include Amazon gift cards, signed copies of my books, T-shirts… and the charming little fellow below:

Please... I need a home!

Please… I need a home!

To win, all you need to do is answer three easy questions – and make a minimum $1/£1 donation to the charity via my JustGiving page.

**You can also help support the charity by reblogging and sharing this page – thanks.**

Please visit the competition page if you want to find out more about ShelterBox – or just watch the following video. (Alternatively, scroll down for details of the prizes and how to enter).

Unlock the VaultPrizes

* 1st Prize: £10 (or $15) Amazon gift card, signed copies of The Vault
and my adventure novel Pagan’s Sphinx, plus the little bear above!

* 2nd & 3rd Prizes: £5 Amazon gift card, signed copies of the two books listed, plus a ShelterBox T-shirt.

*4th & 5th Prizes: Signed copies of the two books above, plus a ShelterBox T-shirt.

Prizes will be sent to wherever you are in the world.

(If anyone wants to increase the competition’s appeal by offering additional prizes then please get in touch!)


To enter the competition there is a small cost. You need to donate a minimum £1 or $1… or one of eight different currencies to ShelterBox via my fundraising page

Obviously, if you want to donate ten pounds, a thousand dollars or a million euros please feel free but just one is all I ask! Donations can be made with either a credit card or PayPal account. However, please ensure you provide your name when donating.

You also need to answer the questions below. Your name and email address will only be used for this competition. I will personally eat your contact information afterwards and pledge not to sell it to any dodgy (or non-dodgy) marketing firms!

The competition will run until the end of the year (exact date to be confirmed but probably mid-December). Winners will be picked at random from all those who get the questions right – and make the minimum donation required (which is why I need your name).


1. How many families does ShelterBox aim to assist every year?

2. In The Vault, what is found in the lake?

3. There are 10 books in the library. You take away three. How many do you have?
