Happily Ever After Giveaway Hop: Win "Entwined" by Heather Dixon



I am so excited to be participating in my first ever Blog Hop!!

I'm giving away a paperback copy of "Enshadowed" by Heather Dixon. I listened to this on Audible.com and it was a charming, but also at times suspenseful, and clean retelling of a fairy tale I didn't know much about, The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Here's a summary:

 Either she's wearing a Bump-It or Azalea has mad teasing skills. Either way: Respect from this Southern girl! Love big hair!
From Amazon:
"Come and mend your broken hearts here.
Just when Azalea should feel that everything is before her—beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing—it’s taken away. All of it. And Azalea is trapped. The Keeper understands. He’s trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. So he extends an invitation.
Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest, but there is a cost. The Keeper likes to keep things. Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late. "

THE RULES

1. FOLLOW  my blog (on the right sidebar, click "Join this Blog" and go from there!)

2. LEAVE A COMMENT
to let me know you did it (old followers...y'all comment and say Hi and you'll be entered too!), and if you want to tell me your favorite fairy tale retelling,  well that would be just fabulous as well!
3. BONUS ENTRY: If you post a link to my Entwined giveaway on your blog, Twitter, or FB, and leave a comment with the link, you will get another entry. (But you've got to really do it, and come back and leave the link for me to see...no cheater, cheater, Pumpkin eaters!! :)

(And just so y'all know: Once I figure out the whole Rafflecopter thing, I'll start doing those. But I'm in the process of switching internet providers and I've got limited access...I know y'all wanted to know that. And in case you're wondering, I'm scared of chickens, I love Dr. Pepper, and I tend to overshare....You're welcome!)

CONTEST RULES:
Open to US residents only. Contest runs Oct. 9-14. Once I draw the winner's name,  I'll email to let you know.  The winner has 48 hours to reply or a second name will be drawn.

There are TONS of book bloggers participating in this hop (because everyone needs a little Happily Ever After, right??)

  2. Yay first blog hop Sarah! Aren't they fun? I loved Entwined (so don't enter me, I have a copy), I'm so glad you enjoyed it as well. I wasn't familiar with the 12 dancing princesses story either, and didn't know this one was based on it until after I'd read. I'm such a fan of retellings, even when I don't know it's a retelling:)

    I noticed your book is about *The 12 Dancing Princesses*. I recently read the Barbie-themed version of this, and loved it.

    If you get a chance, watch the film, *Barbie and The 12 Dancing Princesses*.

  14. I just started following your blog. Big fun! I love fairy tale retellings. I would love to read "Entwined." I have a beautiful picture book of 'The Twelve Dancing Princeses." Such a fun story. Hope I win! Thanks! My favorite fairy tale retelling? How do I pick? I love all of Shannon Hale's YA books. I think they are all fairy tale retellings. Hope I get a chance to read "Entwined!"
