Contest: Win a signed copy of A Sweet Disorder by Jacqueline Kolosov

For my latest contest I am giving away a signed copy of A Sweet Disorder by Jacqueline Kolosov, a historical novel set in Elizabethan England. There will actually be two winners for this contest, because I have both a signed hardcover and signed ARC to give away - the first place winner will get to choose which one they want, and the second place winner gets the other one. You can read my review of A Sweet Disorder here and read my interview with Jacqueline Kolosov here.

About A Sweet Disorder:

Sixteen-year old Miranda has no idea how much her life is going to change upon hearing the news of her father's death. Left with little dowry to offer, Miranda faces a broken engagement, and is sent to live with her father's cousin, the Count John Hardwood, and his wife whose primary goal is to take her to Court and marry her off to the insufferable Lord Seagrave for their own profit.
At Queen Elizabeth's court, Miranda soon learns that a large part of her survival will depend on her knowing who to trust. All the maidens at Court dream of being one of the Queen's ladies in waiting. When Miranda distinguishes herself from the rest with her exquisite sewing and embroidery skills, she gets the attention of the Queen, much to the anger and jealousy of the courtiers, ladies in waiting, and even a trusted "friend."
As Miranda begins to win the Queen's favor, she is given the ultimate test-to recreate Elizabeth's mother's (Ann Boleyn) coronation gown. Miranda knows this is her opportunity to escape the shackles of convention and get out of a marriage to Lord Seagrave and instead establish an independent life at Court as the Queen's seamstress. But how will she reunite with Henry Raleigh, the man to whom she was once promised, and has always loved?
With sophisticated writing, an eye for historically accurate detail, and a flair for suspense, Jacqueline Kolosov re-creates the intrigues of Elizabethan society with a vividness and immediacy that will make teen readers recall the pleasures and tensions of their own lives.


Rules:
Contest will run for two weeks, through July 26. US only, unless you have a US mailing address I can send it to.
