“I HEART TARA” Competition Winner

Tara quote

Thanks to all those Tara McPherson fans who entered the “I heart Tara” contest to win a copy of her latest book “Lost Constellations”. We had an overwhelming response and there was a lot of love for Tara and hope you all enjoyed reading other people’s tweets. As there were no real entry guidelines, we decided to choose one at random, and it was…

“I heart Tara Mcpherson because, she stole my heart and fed it to a jellyfish, in tentacles i now trust.” by @smallinthecity

So congratulations to @smallinthecity!! A copy of lost constellations willbe orbiting it’s way over to you!

Thanks again to everyone who entered, you can view all the entries by reading the replies to our twitter feed (@thunderchunkyuk).
