The Build My World Minifigure giveaway!

Posted by ,

Peter Goodwin, author of the book The Streets of Brickingdon, is running a competition to win the minifigs featured in it.

1st Prize: An exclusive set of the actual Minifigures from the 'Build My World' book: The Steets of Brickingdon, a certificate of authenticity, and a set of 4 bookmarks

10 Runners up will receive a set of 4 bookmarks.

All you have to do is email the Author with the words "LEGO giveaway" using the email found on page 2 of the book. You will then be entered into the prize draw. If you are one of the lucky winners the Author will ask you one question about the book.

Find out more and view some spreads from the book after the break.

The question will be similar to one of these.

  • Why does Ruby visit Brickingdon?
  • How many seagulls does Titus count?
  • What disability does the main character have?

The competition will run until the 1st January 2018, allowing plenty of time for you to order your copy, and for it to arrive. This usually takes about two weeks. Please note: this is a 'Print On Demand' book, which means there is no stock. Each copy is printed for each customer, so you will need to order.

Available to order from Amazon or any large book shop.

Good luck!

I have read this book and it is fantastic! There is a lot of interesting information and funny moments. I believe that the next book will be looking at wheelchair access within design as well as looking at shops.

To the book publisher - you have a typo on page 53 Recycling Plastic, first sentence: wast plastic.
Should be: waste plastic.

^ I love people who point out mistakes!
The book is a self-published book, which means that the author created all the models, took all the photos, added all the page numbers and text boxes, and did all the writing. When you read this book you will realise that he did all this with a severe learning disability. That's what the main story is about. I think we can allow a spelling mistake or two! Since this book is his only source of income I think he deserves our support, not our criticism.

^ Since he prints these on demand, I felt it would be helpful to point out that particular mistake so he has a chance to correct it going forward. If I were the author/publisher I would absolutely welcome any corrections to overlooked spelling errors / printing mistakes, especially if that page is used as a sample of the contents.

Maybe YOU should be more supportive by not criticizing others trying to be helpful.

Thank you all for your feedback, it is helpful, and I do welcome all feedback.

Once my original files are sent to the publisher I can't make any changes. There is a high cost involved if I do, even though it's a print on demand book. So it's too late to make any changes now! I will try to be more careful in the next book. I'm sure you appreciate that I find spelling difficult. I'll let you read my book to find out why exactly that is.

Thank you again for the feedback, it is appreciated.
