Lily Malone's Bunker-play Blog Hop and #Giveaway


Lily Malone's
released her new book and we're celebrating!

Big style.

And I'm one of the lucky ones to be part of the super-duper-Blog-Hop!

*small sigh* ~~ I'm supposed to talk about golf. After all, Lily's book is called "Fairway to Heaven " and check out this sneaky cover. I just love it!

But back to the "golf issue" - I mean it's obviously not the car they were thinking of.

So ... golf!

Did you know that:


The world's longest golf course is the international golf club which located in Massachusetts. The course has a length of about 7600 meters.

or ... The first golf balls used in the 16th century are believed to have been made out of wood.

or ... The first official golf rules were established in Edinburgh by the Gentleman Golfers of Leith.

or ...The first ever recorded hole-in-one was made in 1868 by Tom Morris at the Open Championships in Prestwick, Scotland.

Okay - I suck at golf! I love tennis and I think this is what I'm going to do. Have a cup of tea, turn on the telly and watch the tennis!

Lily - could I request your next book to be about tennis? I've got oodles to say about that sport.

So before I send you on a "blog journey" to win beautiful prizes, let me tell you that ... well, I can't compete with the rafflecopter ... BUT ... I'm happy to giveaway to two lucky visitors each ONE EBOOK COPY  of one of my books of your choice .... yup to a random visitor who leaves a comment about why you'd like to read Lily's latest book - apart from the obvious that EVERYONE just loves Lily's stories. Right?


Off you go - enter here for prizes galore and don't forget to visit all the other blogs as well.

Congratulations again to Lily ... and good luck to you all entering the giveaway below!
