UPDATE: Congratulations to Rachel Hall – winner of the giveaway.

As I’m focusing this month on the brilliant Orenda Books, an independent British publisher I’m delighted to be hosting a giveaway of one of their current releases, the brilliant The Defenceless by Kati Hiekkapelto.  To enter the giveaway just leave a comment below or follow me on Twitter and say hello using the hashtag #TheDefenceless.  I’ll pick a winner at random on 18th September after 10am.

  1. This looks like another author I need to add to my list. I love what the independent publishers are doing at the minute. Fabulous stuff! Thanks for the chance to enter.

  2. Josephine Bayne says:

    I already like this author immensely. Kudos to Orenda for publishing her.

  3. Rachel Hall says:


    I concur with Louise the book is super fab and so relevant to situation in Europe now. I think this is a must. Brilliantly translated too.

    Right, I was lucky enough to meet Kati so I bought a copy of the book and asked her to sign it.. Hence it is never leaving my house and I have refused to lend to my sister (she bends back covers, splits spines, scuffs up book edges and that is a no go for me)!

    Hence I would like to win for my sister Lauren Pike.

    Cheeky I know.

    FYI, I also enjoyed Gunnar’s book too..! So follow up The Defenceless with We Shall Inherit The Wind.

    Brilliant, thanks Louise! I am going to wrap it and put a now on it to present to Lauren (my sister)!

    Much obliged and thanks again!
