Because there was such a huge response to our Happily Ever After Giveaway, we will be giving our email subscribers another chance to win Catherynne Valente’s first book, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.
Summary (Amazon): Twelve-year-old September lives in Omaha, and used to have an ordinary life, until her father went to war and her mother went to work. One day, September is met at her kitchen window by a Green Wind (taking the form of a gentleman in a green jacket), who invites her on an adventure, implying that her help is needed in Fairyland. The new Marquess is unpredictable and fickle, and also not much older than September. Only September can retrieve a talisman the Marquess wants from the enchanted woods, and if she doesn’t . . . then the Marquess will make life impossible for the inhabitants of Fairyland. September is already making new friends, including a book-loving Wyvern and a mysterious boy named Saturday.
Now, here’s the good news!
If we reach 400 subscribers/readers by the end of the giveaway, the winner will also receive the second book in the series, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There.
Summary (Amazon): September has longed to return to Fairyland after her first adventure there. And when she finally does, she learns that its inhabitants have been losing their shadows—and their magic—to the world of Fairyland Below. This underworld has a new ruler: Halloween, the Hollow Queen, who is September’s shadow. And Halloween does not want to give Fairyland’s shadows back. Fans of Valente’s bestselling, first Fairyland book will revel in the lush setting, characters, and language of September’s journey, all brought to life by fine artist Ana Juan. Readers will also welcome back good friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. But in Fairyland Below, even the best of friends aren’t always what they seem.
Not interested in these books? No problem! We are offering the winner an alternative to the books above: credit up to $15 CDN (max) to purchase 1 book of their choice at the Book Depository or up to $20 CDN (max) for 2 books of their choice if we reach our goal of 400 readers this month.

Thanks everybody and good luck!!
