I know you've all been waiting for this moment (I have). The time has come. Fabulousfrock is having a contest for an ARC of MAGIC UNDER GLASS (and other fab prizes).
Have you seen the cover? It's so amazing!
Anyway, be sure to enter the contest. Best of luck to everyone, but if you win and I don't, I may have to hunt you down (I'm mostly kidding). ;-)
Here's some info about the amazing book and the contest:
Coming 12/22/09 from Bloomsbury...
Nimira is a music-hall girl used to dancing for pennies. So when wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to sing accompaniment to a mysterious piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it will be the start of a better life. In Parry's world, long-buried secrets are about to stir. Unsettling rumors begin to swirl about ghosts, a madwoman roaming the halls, and Parry’s involvement in a group of corrupt sorcerers for whom the rules of the living and dead are meant to be broken for greater power. When Nimira discovers the spirit of a dashing fairy gentleman is trapped within the automaton, she is determined to break the curse. But even as the two fall into a love that seems hopeless, breaking the curse becomes a perilous race against time. Because it's not just the future of these star-crossed lovers that's at stake, but the fate of the entire magical world.
