Win a book just in time for the holidays!

Alert, alert! The holidays will be here before you know it!

If you're looking for a gift for a young person, one who likes to read, why not enter my giveaway for a middle grade novel? Prince Dustin and Clara: Deep in the Black Forest by Daniel Lee Nicholson is the first in a series that is based loosely on the ballet, The Nutcracker, which itself is based on a 19th century story by ETA Hoffmann.

I wrote a review on the website, Dance Advantage, but it's not up yet. When it is, I will post a link of it if you want to know what I think about it. Here is the Goodreads summary of it:

To escape the wrath of Egon, Clara finds herself Deep in the Black Forest. It is a world of mystery and magic; creatures and animals, fairy tale princesses, and a Snow Queen. Prince Dustin, the Nutcracker Prince, is determined to protect Clara from Egon. Vicious and vile, Egon is not far behind and determined on getting revenge. 

Clara, a sweet and timid 12-year old, soon discovers that her uncle is a wizard in this far away land and that he is at the center of the chain of events. This thrilling fantasy adventure re-tells the story of the fairy tale, The Nutcracker, taking the reader along for the ride…a classic for all seasons!

 I feel it's appropriate for a reader aged 8 and over. Lots of action, some violence, but no sexual innuendo and no profanity. You don't need to know the story of the Nutcracker in order to enjoy the book and you certainly don't need to be a dancer.

So how do you enter? Simply FOLLOW me, COMMENT nicely that you would like to win a free book, and SHARE this post with your friends. That's it! I have one (1) hardcover novel available and will be happy to send it to you wherever you live, as long as that's in the United States. Sorry but I can't afford to send the book outside the country.

Enter BEFORE November 30! I will randomly select a winner on December 1 and will let the winner know by email, so make sure you give me your email address so I can contact you for your physical address to send you the book. Good luck!
