Giveaway: A Whole New World by Liz Braswell!

Well, Fairy Tale Fortnight may be well-over for the year, but that doesn't mean there aren't still some great new fairy tale adaptations being released -- and really, by this point, you're probably going through fairy tale withdrawals and about due for some new ones, right? ;)
Enter the "fairy tale 2.0" campaign from Disney-Hyperion, which is filling up this Fall with new imaginings of some old favorites -- one of which I have the pleasure of offering up to you today!
Check it out:

A Whole New World by Liz Braswell
Get ItAdd It
384 pages
Published September 1st 2015 by Disney Press
What if Aladdin had never found the lamp? This first book in the A Twisted Tale line will explore a dark and daring version of Disney's Aladdin. When Jafar steals the Genie's lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish. To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war. What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.

After the sort of introverted childhood you would expect from a writer, Liz earned a degree in Egyptology at Brown University and then promptly spent the next ten years producing video games. Finally she caved into fate and wrote Snow and Rx under the name Tracy Lynn, followed by The Nine Lives of Chloe King series under her real name, because by then the assassins hunting her were all dead. She lives in Brooklyn with a husband, two children, a cat, a part-time dog, three fish and five coffee trees she insists will start producing beans any day.


To celebrate the release of the "Fairy Tale 2.0" books, Disney-Hyperion has offered up a prize pack of A Whole New World and "fairy tale 2.0" swag!
One (1) winner receives:
·           Copy of A Whole New World;

About the Book
Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.”
She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.
