The Last Viking Returns

News Flash!!! Prize Winner


In our first competition on The Last Viking blog, all you had to do to win was subcribe to the blog or leave a comment.

The competition closed on the 30 July, and as I happened to have Jan Nicholls,  the incredibly gorgeous President of the WA Branch of The Children’s Book Council of Australia, close at hand,

I asked her to to draw the winner, so as to keep the draw honest and free from scandal.  Here she is drawing the name from a Viking helmet , and it is ….

Rachel Loffler from Carnarvon.

She wins ten children’s books from Fremantle Press.  

The second prize, a date with James Foley, was won by 

  • Frane  Lessac! True!!!

  1. Damn… I really wanted that second prize. Can we do a redraw?

    • Norman, that wasn’t in the rules! I’m sorry Frane, I’m sure your husband would have something to say about that.

      • James you wimp, you are turning down a date with the delectable Frane? Just because her husband is a bit scary? Come on, it’d have to be worth having your legs broken, at least. Though, come to think of it, he does own a Ned Kelly Colt .45 revolver. Hmmm….

  2. I’m the real winner then…woohoo. A date with James Foley!

  3. Go Carnarvon! Lucky Frane? Lucky James? Have fun kids……………….

  4. Is the seat in your garden James?

  5. I’m so excited, I have won the books and will meet James Foley when he comes to Carnarvon for our book week celebrations. I am the true winner.

  6. That bench is in the memorial garden at UWA, Norman made me sit on it… I didn’t think he’d post it up here though!

    See you in a few weeks Rachel, looking forward to meeting you and your class (FYI for readers of this blog- I was going to Carnarvon for school visits anyway, it isn’t part of the prize…)
