But in November, I was lucky enough to be guided to Maddee James and Xuni and she worked with my every thought and need to put together a beautiful, moody, suitably historical but not "historic" design with just the right amount of romance thrown in. I am forever indebted to her.
So now I want to celebrate! I recently had a birthday, so I'm still making my way through the world's biggest chocolate cake. And I'd like to share some of my good fortune with you.
So I'm giving away prizes to four lucky winners!
I have a collection of gorgeous swag from the Class of 2k12 - bookmarks, stickers, buttons, postcards, you name it.
I have an ARC of the middle grade novel REMARKABLE by Lizzie Foley, which debuts next month. It's absolutely delightful and I hate to give it up. From Goodreads: Not everything in the town of Remarkable is remarkable, even though the terribly interesting and even more terribly talented people won’t admit this to just anyone.
I also have an ARC of the brilliant historical YA novel GRAVE MERCY by Robin LaFevers. Atmospheric, historically lush and romantic, but with a kick-butt, no-nonsense herione. From Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny.
And I have one lonely little ARC of GILT that has been waiting for this moment to find a good home.
