Giveaway! "The Lost Gate" by Orson Scott Card

I am crazy busy this week and it looks like it's only going to get busier. Since my posting may get sketchy until after Christmas, I wanted to make sure I put up a good giveaway-- and I hear The Lost Gate by Orson Scott Card is definitely in demand. Courtesy of Tor Books I have one copy to offer to one lucky winner.

Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different, and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an outself.

He grew up in the rambling old house, filled with dozens of cousins, and aunts and uncles, all ruled by his father. Their home was isolated in the mountains of western Virginia, far from town, far from schools, far from other people.

There are many secrets in the House, and many rules that Danny must follow. There is a secret library with only a few dozen books, and none of them in English — but Danny and his cousins are expected to become fluent in the language of the books. While Danny’s cousins are free to create magic whenever they like, they must never do it where outsiders might see.

Unfortunately, there are some secrets kept from Danny as well. And that will lead to disaster for the North family.

Just add your information to the form below to enter (all information is guaranteed confidential and will be discarded once contest ends) and I will randomly pick one winner by Wednesday January 5th. No multiple entries please-- all multiple entries will be discarded. Open everywhere.

Good luck!
