2nd Annual Random Summer Competition: Get Caught Reading, & Win!

It's summer.....not that it is always that easy to tell in the UK. And it is time for a Random Summer Competition!!

The prize:

A signed copy of Mind Games, and a unique necklace, as shown! 


This is a bit more of a close up, where you can see there is a mini book of Mind Games, and a hand stamped message - a warning from me, the author, to the main character Luna. Not that she'll listen.


I had it made specially - there are only two like this, and the other one is mine.





How you enter:

Get caught reading one of my books in an exotic summer holiday locale - if you go on exotic summer holidays. If, like me, your summer will be more spend in the back garden instead of scaling Everest or swimming in the Caribbean, use some imagination: have your photo taken in an unusual interesting place in your own neighbourhood.


To enter, leave a comment below on this blog on my website (teriterry.com), Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tell me where I can see your photo:

  • Instagram: follow me (teriterrywrites) and tag me to the photo
  • Twitter: follow me (@TeriTerryWrites) and hashtag it as #TeriTerryRandomSummerCompetition
  • Facebook: go to my author page and post your photo onto the Random Summer Competition post, which is pinned to the top
  • if you have a blog or website you can post it there and put the link in the comments



  • anyone can enter - from anywhere in the world
  • this is open until 31st August at midnight UK time
  • I get to pick the winner at my sole discretion
  • by entering you are giving permission for me to post your photo on my Facebook page, website, twitter or instagram
  • the winner's name will be posted on my blog, Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram, and has a week to message me with their details before another winner will be chosen.
  • the photo can feature yourself, your best friend (with permission of course), or a hedgehog - I really don't mind - but the book must be identifiable in the photo
  • it can be any of my books: Slated, Fractured, Shattered, Mind Games, Dangerous Games or Book of Lies
  • you can enter more than once (or twice, or three times...) if you want to


Why not?

But what I mean more was this: why am I having a Mind Games based giveaway now, when Book of Lies just came out a few months ago?

Two reasons:

  • I meant to have a Mind Games giveaway with this necklace when Mind Games came out last year, but...well...I temporarily forgot where I put the necklace. I was tidying up and I found it!
  • I'm really excited about a few awards Mind Games is short listed for; who knows, it might even win something!


Good Luck!!!

    Hi!! My name is Ariana I seriously love your Slated trilogy I just followed you on Instagram and posted the pick right after. My dad got me the trilogy for Christmas and I finished the books a week before school ended, It would be amazing if I got at least a chance to win one of your other books. (the necklace is beautiful by the way)

    Hello, my name is Kara. I am 17. I am from UK, West Yorkshire. When I first read the Slated books I final felt I was understood. It was amazing trilogy to read. And I read them nearly every 2 months. I can't wait to read more of your books. I got the trilogy 2014 by my grandma and then got them in 2015 at Christmas by my mum as I wanted the books there for both of my parents houses to read at any time. It would be brilliant to win something. I love the books and the designs. I love all the characters.

    The books you wrote blew my mind and got me hooked which made me read the over and over again because I just couldn't get enough of the words you have written to create this world of unique characters I grew to love. Its fate to have an amazing author such as yourself to create a piece of work this brilliant to bring a fictional world to life x

    I picked up Mind Games from my local library to take on holiday with me. I was so griped that I was oblivious to everything around me, World War 3 could have been going on and I would not have noticed. I even read it twice in 1 week and am reading it again! Unfortunately, all air tickets to the Caribbean were taken, so we had to do with the garden! No hedgehogs either I am afraid! Loved this book and when I finish mind games,again, I will be motoring down to the library to get book of lies and the slated trilogy. You can see my photo at:
    Thanks so much for writing mind games,

    It happens to be winter for me here and school time so I will not be reading in an exotic summer location and will be at home. And since I am supposed to be studying, I am procrastinating by entering this. Anyway I absolutely loved Mind Games and my heart literally died at the end and I'm meaning to read the Slated Trilogy but I have an extremely long to read list. Here are the links because why not enter twice if you got the time?
    First photo is an edit that I made and the third photo on the left I photographed because I basically just spend majority of my time on the computer and internet anyways which is basically what I would do if it were the holidays.
    Second photo is also what I would do if it were the holidays which is play piano (above the book is a Taylor Swift lyric which says hope is treacherous which is kind of like the quote on the necklace)
    Lots of rambling from me,
    P.S. the necklace is really pretty
