Contest - By These Ten Bones & The House of Dead Maids by Clare B. Dunkle

As part of the blog tour for the paperback release of By These Ten Bones by Clare B. Dunkle, I am giving away one copy each of By These Ten Bones and the author's previous book, The House of Dead Maids. I will also be participating in the tour again on March 2nd, when I will review the book as well as feature a guest post from the author. You can see a list of the other stops for the blog tour here.

Contest rules:
To enter, leave a comment on this post with your email address as well as which of the two books you would prefer to win.
Contest will run for 2 weeks, until March 8, 2011.

By These Ten Bones:

A mysterious young man has come to a small Highland town. His talent for wood carving soon wins the admiration of the weaver’s daughter, Maddie. Fascinated by the silent carver, she sets out to gain his trust, only to find herself drawn into a terrifying secret that threatens everything she loves.
There is an evil presence in the carver’s life that cannot be controlled, and Maddie watches her town fall under a shadow. One by one, people begin to die. Caught in the middle, Maddie must decide what matters most to her-and what price she is willing to pay to keep it.

The House of Dead Maids:

Young Tabby Aykroyd has been brought to the dusty mansion of Seldom House to be nursemaid to a foundling boy. He is a savage little creature, but the Yorkshire moors harbor far worse, as Tabby soon discovers. Why do scores of dead maids and masters haunt Seldom House with a jealous devotion that extends beyond the grave?
As Tabby struggles to escape the evil forces rising out of the land, she watches her young charge choose a different path. Long before he reaches the old farmhouse of Wuthering Heights, the boy who will become Heathcliff has doomed himself and any who try to befriend him.

YA Librarian - couldn't find your email so replying here in case you check again. yes, it is YA, and the setting is historical, a small town during Medieval times, but I don't think it's super specific.

If the giveaway is open worldwide, I would like to be entered.

The tie up with Emily Brontë's book interests me.

Thanks for the giveaway! Both books look so good...I think I'd have to go with The House of Dead Maids, if only because it mentions Wuthering Heights.
