Giveaway: Trilby Moffat Double Book Prize

This is the story of how one ordinary girl finds herself on a deliciously fast-paced adventure, fleeing to an island where time doesn't exist, cats are particularly rude and cake is always on the menu. Here she will take on the most treacherous job of all time. Well . . . outside of time, to be precise.


And thanks to the good folk at Hachette Australia, we are giving away this thrilling new title by Kate Temple along with the second book in a series, The Perilous Promotion of Trilby Moffat, a girl who was accidentally promoted to the most important job that ever existed. The job of Time Keeper.

In Trilby's first adventure, characters spontaneously develop expertise in ancient historical skills. In 25 words or less, share which time period you would most like a new skill from, and why?

Email your answer along with your name and postal address to dimity. The response we like the best will win a copy of both of these books prize. Competition is open to anyone, worldwide, so long as they have an Australian postal address for delivery of the books. Please note, we cannot deliver to PO Boxes. Entries without a name and street address will be ineligible. Winners will be announced right here on our website on 14 August 2023.

Competition runs from 5.00 am 5 August 2023 to 5 pm 12 August 2023. Adults can enter for those aged 17 and under. This is a game of skill, not chance. The judge’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
