Battle of Stirling Bridge Day Giveaway

The culmination of my novel Freedom's Sword is at the Battle of Stirling Bridge which took place at a bridge over the River Forth in Scotland on 11 September 1297. At that battle the Scottish forces, led by Sir Andrew de Moray and Sir William Wallace, defeated an English army and freed Scotland from English conquest.

To celebrate the anniversary of that day, I am having a Giveaway. To enter, by midnight US Pacific time on 11 September, 2011:

1. Follow me on Twitter at @JRTomlinAuthor. Of course, anyone already following me already has this step completed.
2. Tweet me @JRTomlinAuthor with the words: Saor Alba (Scots Gaelic for Free Scotland) and
3. Post a comment here including your twitter handle.

On 12 September I will twitter and post here the winners of the following prizes with the winners chosen at random:

First Prize: $50 Amazon Gift Card

Five Second Prizes: A choice of any one of my eBooks. A choice of my historical fiction (Freedom's Sword or A Kingdom's Cost) or fantasy (Talon of the Unnamed Goddess, Blood Duty, or Laying the Odds).

So post, twitter, tweet and enjoy.

J. R.
