The terms and conditions are pretty simple. To enter, all you need do is leave a comment with a guess (1 per person, of course) regarding the mortality rate of Bane of Souls, my first book, to one decimal place. I won't spell out precisely the method of calculation (to prevent anyone working it out) but will say that anonymous deaths do not count, and the population that the deaths are drawn from is *not* the whole population of Highford but the named cast in the book. As you'd expect, the nearest guess is the winner (in the unlikely event of a tie the first person to make their guess wins).
The e-mail (which is unpublished) which you enter for your comment will be the one to which I'll send the e-book.
I intend to send the free copy on the day Sir Edric's Temple is released on Smashwords (Amazon and physical versions will follow shortly thereafter). There's no firm date as yet, but I'm hopeful it'll be before Christmas, with a release in October likely.
So, get guessing. If you're unsure if you'd like the 35,000(ish) word comedy then an excerpt of the start is up here and should provide a good guide as to whether you'd like the book or not.
Best of luck, everyone.
