Carry On: A Writing Competition


A writing competition for Rainbow Rowell fans


My Kinda Book and Movellas are at it again! This time we're teaming up to bring you a great writing competition to celebrate the October 8th UK release of Rainbow Rowell's new novel, Carry On. Of course, we all know Rainbow Rowell as the author of Fangirl, a novel that is dear to our hearts here amongst the Movellas' community. With a chance to win a guest blog spot on My Kinda Book's blog AND a signed copy of Carry On, UK users on Movellas cannot pass this competition up!

Follow @MyKindaBook for the latest updates on your fave YA books!


About the book

Simon Snow just wants to relax and savour his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he'll be safe. Simon can't even enjoy the fact that his room-mate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can't stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you're the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savour anything.

Based on the characters Simon and Baz who featured in Rainbow Rowell's bestselling novel Fangirl, Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.
