Book giveaway: Mike the Spike

mike the spikeMy first junior novel Mike the Spike has just been released by New Frontier Publishing as part of their Little Rockets series. It’s all about head lice and trust and self-reliance and really cool hats!

The official launch will be next month, during the school holidays. But in the meantime, I’m running a giveaway competition.

For your chance to win a signed copy, please write a comment in the comments box. I’ll pick a name at random and send the winner a signed copy. Let me know if you’d like it dedicated to a particular person. Oh, and be sure to check back on Tuesday next week, when I’ll announce the winner … also in the comments section.

I’m also pleased to announce that the popular online parenting magazine, Child, is running a Little Rockets giveaway, three 6-book packs of exciting reads for kids aged 7+. Mike the Spike is among them! To enter, visit their website here.

Good luck and happy reading 🙂




  1. Bravo! The cover is fun and I’m sure it will be a great read, considering the topic. If I happen to be the happy winner, sign the copy for me since my children are a little too old but their mom still so young!
    I am very happy for you, Stella, and wish you and Mike a wonderful journey together.

    Congratulations Stella, best of luck with it! If I am lucky enough to win the signed copy, could I get it made out to Owen and Ruby please? It might be asking for trouble putting both their names on (sharing isn’t either of their strong points at the moment!) but let’s see how we go.

    I’m so glad Mike has the chance to make more friends and fans!! Looking forward to the launch 🙂

    Would love to explore the wonderful story with my seven year old nephew Alexandro’s – it sounds like it touches on issues relevant to all children !!

  5. Thanks to everyone who entered the competition. It was a thrill to see so many entries! I’m pleased to announce the winner … Huw Williams! Huw, please contact me with your details and I’ll post the book out to you. Hope you and your kids enjoy it 🙂
