I’ve had so much fun during the #shoelove campaign online, to celebrate the publication of The Second Chance Shoe Shop.

Firstly, I’d like to thank anyone who interacted with me, and especially for all the fabulous photos, and fun that we shared.

Secondly, I’d like to apologise to anyone who I forgot to thank. There were so many notifications coming through that I had to make sure that I included every competition entry and may have missed offering thanks. 

The winners (social media names) of the #shoelove goodie bags are:

The Second Chance Shoe Shop Competition – week two

Well, I can’t believe there have been over 250 entries for the competition so far. Thank you so much to anyone who is sharing the #shoelove and joining in, as well as posting reviews and blog posts. It’s been incredible to see how the book is being received!

To recap, to celebrate the publication of The Second Chance Shoe Shop, I’m giving three people the chance to win an exclusive goodie bag.

Included in the goodie bags are:


The Second Chance Shoe Shop tote bag
A signed copy of Stirred with Love, That’s What Friends are For and The Second Chance Shoe Shop
The Second Chance Shoe Shop notepad
Jimmy Choose cocktail flavoured sweets, handmade by Wee Sweeties.
Pink Peeptoe nail varnish, created by Ard as Nails.
Foot cream by Arbonne
Sultry Sherratt body scrub, created by Soap Dodger
Shoelove Badges
Keep calm and Carry On Buying Shoes fridge magnet
Chocolate flowers and mini love hearts

So, what do you need to do to be in with a chance to win?

For the next five days, until the competition ends on Friday 15 April, I would like to see photos of your favourite shoes. If you are on Twitter, please include the hashtag #shoelove. The hashtag must be included so that we can keep a record of all entries.

If you are on Facebook, post the picture on my facebook page. I have a record of it then. You can also use the same photo on different days.

Second Chance v2I am in London for London Book Fair most of this week, so it might be hard for me to get a reception in the Olympia. But I shall be tweeting!  For this week, there is a theme of:

Show me your favourite shoes.

Whatever you are doing, photograph your shoes! Please use the hashtag #shoelove.

Also there will be spot prizes for photos I like, but these will not be revealed until 16 April too. (This way, everyone can come back on one day to see if they have won.) I’d like to do this with shares on Facebook, for anyone who shares a post, but I’m not sure how to keep a record of this when someone else might share that post. So for fairness, it will be retweets on Twitter because I can see these. I will be giving spot prizes out on Facebook too.

General rules:

1. This competition is open to anyone worldwide, providing the hashtag #shoelove is included in the tweets and on Facebook posts.
2. My decision on the winners is final, and will be decided by my love of shoes.
3. You do not have to buy The Second Chance Shoe Shop to enter, but please do as you will love it…
4. The main purpose of the competition is to have fun and share the love of shoes.
5. Spot prizes will be awarded as and when and at my discretion.
6. You don’t have to post the same photos twice on both Facebook and Twitter. Just the once will do.
7. The competition will finish on Friday 15 April at midnight (British time.) Winners will be notified on 16 April here at 5pm British time.  

I do hope you will join in with the #shoelove and have some fun.

#Shoelove competition goodies

Prize1

The #shoelove competition launches on Monday 4 April, ahead of publication day for The Second Chance Shoe Shop out on Friday 8 April. 

Do check out the blog on Monday for details of the goodies and spot prizes and general shoe love that will be going on for the next three weeks from then. 

You can also visit The Second Chance Shoe Shop and put in your preorder for #shoelove. I’m thrilled with the reviews that are coming in fast and thick. Here are some snippets and the blurb:

The Second Chance Shoe Shop is that rarest of treats, a story filled with warm and wonderful characters who feel like your best friends from the first page. Tilly Tennant

All Riley Flynn wants is to meet someone who makes her happy. But attracting the right kind of man is not easy, and with her heart still hurting from her last break-up, Riley believes she’ll never find love again.

A year ago, Sadie Stewart’s whole world was shattered when her husband, Ross, died. She has struggled to keep herself together for the sake of their young daughter, but with the anniversary of his death approaching, Sadie finds herself overwhelmed by grief.

Second Chance v2Sadie and Riley work at Chandlers shoe shop, in the charming town of Hedworth. But when Chandlers is threatened with closure, the friends are confronted with the loss of not only their jobs, but also their support network – the glue that holds them together when they are close to breaking.

As they put together a plan to save their beloved shop, Sadie realises that she might just be learning to live again. Could it be that new beginnings are just round the corner? The campaign also finds Riley unexpectedly crossing paths with charming photographer, Ethan. Maybe her second chance at love is right under her feet …

A delightfully romantic tale of love, friendship and putting your best foot forward, for fans of Carole Matthews and Amanda Prowse.

‘Another winner from Marcie Steele! The Second Chance Shoe Shop is chock full of relatable characters, romance, fashion and fun. A wonderful read that will draw you in from beginning to end.’ Talli Roland

What readers are saying about The Second Chance Shoe Shop:

‘Yet again Marcie Steele has written a wonderful story with characters who grab you by the heart and touch your soul.’ By The Letter Reviews

’I wanted to savour every page … My favourite Marcie Steele book so far.’ Steph Loz Book Review

‘If you still haven’t read any of Mel’s or Marcie’s books, you really should. You will love them!’ Kerry at Chat About Books

‘This was a lovely, well-told story and easily (in my opinion) Marcie’s best one yet’ Book Lover Worm
