It's a Vespertine Dream Giveaway!

The VespertineSaundra Mitchell's blog is hosting an awesome giveaway in honor of her new book, The Vespertine. She says: "The season for formals is fast approaching, and if it’s one thing that we have in common with the 19th century, it’s the search for the perfect gown. In THE VESPERTINE, both Amelia and her best friend Zora get brand new gowns for their whirlwind summer."

For the giveaway, she wants to give one grand prize winner the chance to win her dream gown by gifting a $300 VISA giftcard!! The contest is open internationally, and there is also a second and third place prize swag pack that includes a signed copy of the book, too.

She also requests that the winner submit a picture of the dream gown that is purchased with the prize. Maybe I'm counting my chickens before they've hatched, but I already have a general idea of what kind of gown I want to buy for myself (and it's not a prom dress, I'm too old for that nonsense!).

Here's a description of the book for your pleasure:

          It’s the summer of 1889, and Amelia van den Broek is new to Baltimore and eager to take in all the pleasures the city has to offer. But her gaiety is interrupted by disturbing, dreamlike visions she has only at sunset—visions that offer glimpses of the future. Soon, friends and strangers alike call on Amelia to hear her prophecies. However, a forbidden romance with Nathaniel, an artist, threatens the new life Amelia is building in Baltimore. This enigmatic young man is keeping secrets of his own—still, Amelia finds herself irrepressibly drawn to him.
When one of her darkest visions comes to pass, Amelia’s world is thrown into chaos. And those around her begin to wonder if she’s not the seer of dark portents, but the cause.
