Winner of Working from Home book launch competition to win a Kindle announced

I had a glimpse of Twitter celebrity status over the past week with the Working from home competition to win a Kindle. My ‘mentions’ column was running as fast as a senior politician after the Murdochs’ dropped them in it at the Leveson enquiry. It’s quite a relief to return to the manageable levels of cheeky banter that normally loiter there.

In all there were 643 entries into the competition from the retweets and the people who liked the Working from home Facebook page. I put the names into a spreadsheet and would you believe it that picked number 13? Lucky for some. Lucky for you? You’ll have to read on to find out!

Now, if 643 people had bought the book I would be a very happy bunny! I sold books in four different countries and from the early reviews it seems I have hit my goal of making people laugh out loud (three reviewers said they did and the fourth said it had ‘lots of laughs’. However, I did miss out on my challenging goal of breaking into the top 10 Kindle books.

Thank you for everyone who entered the competition and who shared, forwarded and generally told their friends about my book. If you were thinking of buying it but didn’t get round to it – now is a good time to do it!

You can buy Working from home: Mixing business with pleasure? here for the bargain prices of £2.99

You DON’T need have a Kindle to read it. Amazon provide free apps so you can read it on your PC, Mac, iPad or smart phone. So go ahead and have a laugh with me.

Oh yes, you wanted to know who won the competition didn’t you? The lucky number 13 was a Twitter entry and is @networkinggirls. Congratulations to you and I’ll be in touch about getting the prize to you!
