Reading and a cup of tea go together like…

… peas and carrots … a horse and carriage … raspberries and strawberries … gin and tonic … love and laughter To celebrate the publication today of Ignoring Gravity, I’m running a little competition for all you book readers.

Perhaps you prefer to read Stephen King’s Gunslinger series with a mug of Darjeeling? Join the conversation and the competition – and maybe win some Yorkshire teabags – by leaving a message here. Alternatively, you can join the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #teaandnovels or leave a message on my Facebook page. A big thank you to Taylors of Harrogate, the makers of my favourite brew, Yorkshire Tea, who didn’t think I was mad when I suggested this competition.
