So it’s finally here. Beautiful Words is now officially published (and, of course, available from all good book outlets, though here seems to be the cheapest and with free worldwide delivery).

And to celebrate I’m running a competition. I’ve a handful of copies I’ll give away, signed and personalised (and with a secret extra treat) to anywhere in the world, and to be in with a chance of winning one all you have to do is tell me what YOUR favourite word is and why. You can do it by leaving a comment here, by tweeting me, or by posting something on my Facebook wall.

“Smart, funny, and very very beautiful, Nik Perring shows us twenty-six new ways to fall in love.” — Robert Shearman.

“Combining brevity with an overarching narrative, Nik Perring’s unusual storytelling is touching and captivating. His Beautiful series follows the lives of Lucy, Lily, and Alexander through their words, trees and shapes.

In the first of the series, Beautiful Words, fact and fiction interplay within the context of their three lives.

Accompanied by rich, playful illustrations from Miranda Sofroniou, these 26 story-gems invite us into Alexander’s world, telling us of his love, his loss and some of his favourite words too.

Beautiful Trees and Beautiful Shapes, the second and third books in the series, are due to be released later in 2014.”
