You could win one of 1000 advanced proof copies of Jane Johnson's - doyen of fantasy literature - pirate thriller Crossed Bones when you sign-up to the Penguin Books newsletter.

With handsome pirates and exotic mysteries, Crossed Bones is a buckle-my-swash-me-hearties adventure of the high seas based on the real-life raids on the Cornish coast by 17th century Barbary corsairs, who kidnapped men, women and children for the Moroccan slave markets (which was sadly the fate of one of author Johnson's ancestors).

The book isn’t released until Spring 2008, but you can get your hands on a copy before anyone else does. All you have to do is log onto and sign up to the Penguin newsletter.

The closing date for this competition is 7th January 2008.
