Sponsored Giveaway: The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic

I’m very happy to announce that Penguin has sponsored a giveaway of my current read: The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic! I’m very much enjoying reading it so far and I’m so excited that one of you will get to join me :D. This one reminds me a lot of A Discovery of Witches, so if you enjoyed Harkness, definitely check this out.

The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic Giveaway An imaginative story of a woman caught in an alternate world—where she will need to learn the skills of magic to survive

Nora Fischer’s dissertation is stalled and her boyfriend is about to marry another woman.  During a miserable weekend at a friend’s wedding, Nora wanders off and walks through a portal into a different world where she’s transformed from a drab grad student into a stunning beauty.  Before long, she has a set of glamorous new friends and her romance with gorgeous, masterful Raclin is heating up. It’s almost too good to be true.

Then the elegant veneer shatters. Nora’s new fantasy world turns darker, a fairy tale gone incredibly wrong. Making it here will take skills Nora never learned in graduate school. Her only real ally—and a reluctant one at that—is the magician Aruendiel, a grim, reclusive figure with a biting tongue and a shrouded past. And it will take her becoming Aruendiel’s student—and learning magic herself—to survive. When a passage home finally opens, Nora must weigh her “real life” against the dangerous power of love and magic.

Since this one is being shipped directly from the publisher, they get to set the rules: US only (next giveaway will be international, I promise!), no PO boxes, please respond to my email within 48 hours otherwise I will pick a new winner. I’ll be verifying entries so please don’t cheat D: .
