Raffle for This House of Books

Our First Raffle

This House of Books has one of the rare copies of Jamie Ford's Love and Other Consolation Prizes with the rare tip-in page. You can have a chance, perhaps multiple chances, to win one of these rare and special copies of Jamie Ford's latest book in a raffle.

The tip-in page is special. Ford wrote a poem and Aaron Parrett at the Territorial Press hand set and hand printed it as a special page on an antique letterpress. Only 2,500 of these pages were printed. Most were randomly distributed, to be found like “easter eggs” at bookstores. We have this one copy to raffle.

Here is How You Can Get Tickets

From now until October 19, for each $5 of merchandise you purchase at This House of Books you will receive one raffle ticket. For example, if you make a $25 purchase, you will get five raffle tickets. You can purchase any combination of books, gifts, toys, and tea.

The drawing will take place the evening of Jamie’s reading. You must be present to win.

Additional copies of the book will be available for purchase at the store downtown.

About the Reading

Jamie Ford ranks among Montana’s most successful authors. He will be in Billings on 19 October, 5:30 to 7:00 PM, to present his latest novel, Love and Other Consolation Prizes.

In a topsy-turvy world, early in the novel a 12 year old boy is given away as the prize in a charity raffle. The winning ticket is held by the madam of a high-class brothel. This book is a great read!

Meet the New York Times bestselling author and pick up an autographed copy of his newest book.

Ford’s previous book, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, is being made into a movie. George Takei is the executive producer. Ford is co-writing the screenplay.
