Our friend Kaz Mahoney just published her first novel, The Iron Witch and to celebrate, we're giving away an autographed copy.
Seventeen year old Donna Underwood is an outcast at high school -- she's quiet, a bit mousy, and she wears elbow length gloves every day to hide the iron tattoos that cover her arms -- tattoos created by the most ingenious alchemists alive which give her superhuman powers over evil.
How do you win a copy of this YA paranormal urban fantasy for yourself or the youngster in your life? Well, just write a story (350 words max) that includes Roswell and any of the following: alchemists; evil wood elves with sharp pointed teeth; nasty, catty, back-stabbing, popular high school girls; roguish mysterious half-fey college dropout boys with unknown pasts, piercing eyes, sculpted cheekbones and oh-so kissable lips; mysterious clocks; spunky loyal sidekicks; and/or magical tattoos made of iron and post it here. The best story posted by next Friday, to be judged by Kaz Freaking Mahoney herself, gets an autographed copy of The Iron Witch.
Iron Witch Photographed with Roswell to Enhance Value -- Clickenzee to Embiggen!
Don't feel like writing? You can always buy a copy on Amazon.
This will be our fourth contest. You may remember Seaborn (aka Salt Water Witch), then we gave away an autographed copy of Peter Straub's Dark Matter then we gave away an autographed copy of Cherie Priest's Boneshaker. You can read all the past entries (and, you know, buy any of the cool books that you missed.)
