Draw Results

Every few weeks I draw a batch of names from a digital hat and send those lucky folk a signed copy of my novel. (If you're not in the draw you can enter here)

This particular draw is for a copy of Hal Spacejock with the funky new Dion Hamill cover.



Every person in the draw has received (or will receive) a unique number via email, and if your number appears below you've won a copy! Just reply to the notification email with your mailing address and you'll receive a signed copy of Hal Spacejock.


The winning numbers for draw 1221:

12305
12359
12698
12702



If you missed out, relax! There's a second chance! All you have to do is post a comment below, and in a few days time I'll pick a name at random and they'll also win a copy of Hal. (The second chance draw is one extra book for each of my Blogger, LJ and Myspace blogs. Keen Spacejock fans will no doubt seek out and comment on all three ...)


Simon Haynes is the author of the Hal Spacejock and Hal Junior series (Amazon / Smashwords / other formats)

Hope to win a copy of one of your excellent books at some stage. Looking forward to Hal 3 in the New Year! Merry Christmas.

Wow, only one number off winning!

Hmm, so I've found you on blogger & myspace but didn't even look on LJ... so am I not keen enough? Is keen the new word for fangirl?

:o)

Hellybear said...

I'd like to make my set complete!

Simon you will need to write faster, or i'll need to read slower, one of the two!

Peter said...

You Aussie's have all the fun!
These books aren't available in the US of A. Yet.
I most certainly hope that changes soon!

Happy Christmas to Down Under, from Up Top! =P

Maybe nest time!! Keeping fingers crossed!!

Live in America, just read the first Hal Space Jock. Quite amusing. I don't know why I enjoy watching Newtonian Physics beat up Hal so much as the vehicles accelerate and decellerate, but I get a kick out of them.

Neb said...

Missed by eight places...phooey! :-D

Dave said...

When is the Hal Spacejock game coming out?

I was a big fan of Space Quest, but Hal Spacejock the game would blow it away...

Hugh said...

Aaargh! Curse you, 12054, you worthless number!

And yet I am 12054, thanks to some randomizing algorithm. Is self-loathing an appropriate response to chance loss? Surely not.

Maybe next time I will be lucky. Or maybe next time I will be worthy. Take your pick.

Mark Deniz said...

Oh, I was only 30 away that time...

*shakes head*

Carolyn said...

the heart beats loud
but the result
is only silence

Leslie said...

I was less than 100 away that time!

Happy Holidays!!

23 off :(

per spire at gmail said...

Just like everyone else I was hoping to win a book. But I guess I got my just desserts. ;o)

Priya said...

Darn, and the lovely person who sold me my number via eBay swore it was a winner. Next time for sure (fingers and toes crossed!)

Shalinor said...

Only 2 off - not too shabby...

Fay said...

Not my lucky day (again). I'll settle for rain, rain, rain.

Merry Christmas to all.

Fay

Ola said...

Well 3 correct digits out of 5 ain't too bad. After all it's 80 percent and that's more than I got on my math exam... lol

arnold said...

exactly 100 off.. getting close

Erica said...

aahhh, about as close as I get to a Lotto win,
If I don't win in the next round I might have to resort to buying a copy,
BTW I tried my own little bit of space fiction, if you'd like a laugh (or maybe just a grin) I'm a textile artist who watches re-runs of Star Trek

I won't say no to Free Hal Books, seeing that I usually purchase them.

Excalibor said...

Again, luck missed me... Aahhh, well, maybe next time... I'll enjoy yWriter in the meantime...

Thanks and keep it up!

akinwale said...

Heh. One in how many chances? I've never been good at these lucky draws. Or maybe I was designed not to win. Hope to win a copy :)

Cheers.

I'd love to win a copy of one of your books. I haven't read any of them yet, but your blurb has me eager to find out what they are all about.

sheri said...

No luck again. Hope I do better next time.

Kevin said...

I was farther off this time than any of the past drawings; I don't like that trend :)

Lisa Beth said...

Only 4 numbers off!!

Getting close!

Robert said...

Would certainly like to win; still, it's nice to know that you, Simon, are thinking of me on this bleak day in Chicago. Someday, the gods will see fit to usher me into Halvalla (??)!

Growing up in the 80s, "keen" was another word for "Groovy." I'm not keen enough, but still hope to win a book. Merry Christmas!
