The Eurovision Snowman Contest – the Scoreboard

Lines are now closed in our Draw-an-Angry-Snowman competition. Entries came in from all over the world (seriously – China, Italy, Portugal, Finland – you name it) and almost every one came with a heart-rending sob story about how the artist had tried but failed to buy a copy of the ‘When the Professor Got Stuck in the Snow’. It was all too much, so I shortlisted my favourites then roped in an independent celebrity panel who judged the snowmen sans tales of woe.

Thanks a lot to everyone who took the time to enter. The quality was really high, which made the judging a thoroughly unpleasant experience. Rest assured I’m never doing anything like this again. Please blame the jury, not me, if you didn’t get picked.

Without further ado, the two winners of my no-longer-available new novel ‘When the Professor Got Stuck in the Snow’ are:

Naveena of Bristol:

Angry Snowman by Naveena Strickland

And Mik from the National Academy of Insignificant Arts in, possibly, the Netherlands:Image

And the runners up, who will receive – if they would like one – a copy of my golden oldie ‘Anthropology’, are:

Lynn of Milton Keynes:



Emelie of Sweden:


Fiona of Aberdeen:

IMG-20140504-00488 And Wilf of New Zealand:IMG_2331I would like to reiterate that anyone who didn’t win is to blame the all-star panel, not me. If it comes to legal action I will have no hesitation in naming the culprits. I’ll be contacting the winners in the coming days…

And if you didn’t manage to get hold of a copy of the Prof, he will be back in due course [and for now you can find him on the Kindle, if you’re that way inclined].

Happy reading, snowman fans.
