Billionaire Trilogy Competition

I was lucky enough last week to be able to meet Richard Newsome, the author of the fantastic Billionaire Trilogy.  I got the inside scoop on what he’s writing next and found out a little about what Gerald, Sam and Ruby are up to now that their adventures have come to a conclusion.

Thanks to Richard’s amazing publishers, Text, we have a set of the Billionaire Trilogy to give away.  These are extra special copies of the books because they’re signed by Richard Newsome.  All you have to do to get in the draw to win the set is tell us:  What would you do with 20 billion dollars?  Tell us your answer by leaving a comment on this post, along with your name and email address (so that we can contact you if you win).

Competition closes Wednesday 7 December.  See below for terms and conditions

Who is Richard Newsome?

Richard Newsome is another of the fantastic authors that are joining us for the launch of the Christchurch Kids Blog on Wednesday 8 September, 7pm at Central Library.  Richard is an Australian author (although he was born in New Zealand) and his first book, The Billionaire’s Curse was published in 2009 when he won the Text Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing.

He’s had lots of different jobs before becoming a writer, including a journalist (“he chased after police cars while they chased after bad guys”) and jobs in TV and radio.

He’s written two books in The Billionaire’s Trilogy, The Billionaire’s Curse and The Emerald Casket.  They are both amazingly adventurous stories and I really recommend them.  You can read my review of The Billionaire’s Curse here on the blog.

If you would like to meet Richard Newsome and maybe even get his autograph, come along to the launch of the Christchurch Kids Blog on Wednesday 8 September.
