While times are particularly tough for bookshops, author Holly Bourne has come up with a plan to help called #SignForOurBookshops. If you buy a copy of Grumpycorn or Don't Call Me Grumpycorn through an independent bookshop or any bricks-and-mortar bookshop (such as Waterstones, Blackwells, Daunt) im the UK in person or online, I'll send a special Grumpycorn bookplate to the first 20 people to get in touch.
Simply send an e-mail to Stuart - firstname.lastname@example.org - to see if there are any left, provide proof of purchase with a receipt from the bookshop for any date past 16 Nov 2020, and let me know which name you would like me to dedicate it to (ie, 'For Sam') and an address we can post it to.
(I'm afraid this is a new special offer and I can't give bookplates to people who have previously bought my books, but if you already have one, consider buying another as a gift for someone!)
If you don't have a regular independent bookshop you shop at, here are some options:
* Page 45 , Nottingham(who ship worldwide and may still have some of their own bookplates remaining, so you'd get two!)
* Stories by the Sea, St Ives
* Red Lion Books, Colchester
* Sevenoaks Bookshop, Kent
... And many local bookshops who don't have online shops will order for you if you ring them up.

We're also offering a Kevin bookplate if you check Philip Reeve's blog here! (I drew the picture, so Philip's dealing with those orders.)
