It’s a Sherlock Giveaway!

Posted on Updated on

What a crazy fun week this has been!

My birthday, my novel revisions done and sent off to my editor, a new pope, the first read-through of Sherlock season 3, Martin Freeman with grapes for eyes, Twitter in a grape quote frenzy, BBC Radio 4 airing the new Neverwhere, and an announcement that there will be a Sherlock season 4.

Edited to add: As if that wasn’t enough, Mark Gatiss just announced the first episode of Sherlock season 3 will be called, “The Empty Hearse.” *falls down, dies*

See? That’s a lot of crazy-fun stuff. I feel like celebrating!

In honor of all the events this week, I’m giving away a Sherlock journal from my Cafepress store, Robots and Rainbows.


The journal measures 5×8 and features my minimalist Sherlock design. Inside are 160 college rule lined pages. Plenty of room to write your Sherlock fanfic stories.

TO ENTER: leave a comment below, and use a valid email address so I can contact you if you win. Don’t worry, I won’t sell your email address or spam you or anything evil like that. Promise.

The winner will be announced here this Friday, March 22.

Please help spread the word to all your Sherlockian/Cumberbabe friends! To make it easy, here’s a sample tweet or Facebook status you can copy and paste:

Enter to win a free Sherlock journal! #giveaway

Stay tuned for the winner! And as always, thanks for reading.

    I love Sherlock so much that if I were to have another child, I would most likely name him John Hamish Watson. And I hope I win the journal. Thank you!

      Hit “done” too soon, lol. That’s supposed to say “for the high-functioning sociopath in all of us…”
      Great contest, Amy!

    The journal is most excellent. I have an 11 year old spy want-a-be who’d LOVE that!

    A Sherlock of my own? Inside whom I can inscribe my secret thoughts? Um, yes, please.
    (Great idea, Amy! Please add more things to your cool store. *rubs hands greedily*)

    I love the modernist design of your notebook – it befits a Belstaff.
