Early Christmas Present (aka you know I love you)

Alright, you all know I had a Maria V. Snyder Extravaganza weekend, and I intend to rub it in for a few more posts, but I thought I would share this with you now. Because I know you'll put up with me rubbing it in fantastically, and because I/Maria V. Snyder/ the Dorsch Memorial Library (and Jadin the librarian) are so awesome, I have an early Christmas/[insert holiday of your choice] present for you: I am going to give you a chance to win one of the books I have been crowing about.

Maria kindly donated some signed copies of her books to the library, and Jadin ^ kindly passed one on to me to pass on to you.
So I am offering a signed copy of Maria's latest book, Sea Glass (#2 in the Glass series) to one lucky winner.

About the book
books
Student glass magician Opal Cowan's newfound ability to steal a magician's powers makes her too powerful. Ordered to house arrest by the Council, Opal dares defy them, traveling to the Moon Clan's lands in search of Ulrick, the man she thinks she loves. Thinks because she is sure another man now her prisoner has switched souls with Ulrick.

In hostile territory, without proof or allies, Opal isn't sure whom to trust. She can't forget Kade, the handsome Stormdancer who doesn't want to let her get close. And now everyone is after Opal's special powers for their own deadly gain....
