5WTNW – The Beautiful and Haunting Giveaway


And that means a GIVEAWAY.

In case you’re just joining me, I’m counting down the weeks until my debut, THE NEAR WITCH, with a series of Monday giveaways. Because giveaways make Mondays suck less. And because they help distract me both from real work and from the number of days left until my release.


The Beautiful and Haunting.

I’ve read three books in recent months that earn this label, that have not only transported me while reading, but clung to me long after I’ve put them down. I gave these clues on Twitter: One book stole my heart. One book gave me chills. One book dragged me under.

These three books, as well as some swag, compose Week 5’s prize.


STOLEN by Lucy Christopher (signed bookplate)
BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY by Ruta Sepetys (signed)


ONE person will win these fabulous books as well as the swag seen with them.
Also, ONE person will win a batch of chocolate cake cookies (because who doesn’t like cookies?).


1. Fill out the form below.
2. Spread the word! And eat a cookie.
3. Leave a comment if you want. They make me smile.

Things you should know:

*IF you want more entries (up to 10 for Twitter) you can complete the form again as needed, only filling out name/email and checking the right box).

*You can find the NW widget HERE.

*I like you.

*Giveaway runs from 9AM CST on Monday until 9AM CST on Tuesday and is open to North America and Europe.
