Enter to Win Tracy Barrett’s ‘The Stepsister’s Tale’ | Giveaway

Win three novels by Tracy Barrett!
The Stepsister's TaleThe Stepsister’s Tale (Harlequin Teen, June 2014) is Tracy Barrett’s 20th published book and her 10th novel. Starred reviews in Kirkus and Publishers Weekly point to the “provocative inversion” and “highly imaginative” twist on the classic Cinderella story found in the novel. Here Isabella/Ella is a spoiled brat, the handsome prince has a nasty mean streak, and the “wicked” stepsisters are just trying to keep the Manor from literally falling down around them.
In celebration of Barrett’s publishing milestone, five lucky winners will each receive three of her novels: The Stepsister’s Tale; The Dark of the Moon (Houghton Harcourt, 2011), a compelling retelling of the myth of the Minotaur; and Anna of Byzantium (Delacorte, 1999), Barrett’s now-classic fictionalized story of the medieval Princess Anna Comnena.
To enter, send an email with your name, shipping address, and email address. Email entries must be received by midnight (PDT) on June 15. Winners will be selected in a random drawing on June 16 and notified via email. One entry per person, please; prizes will only be shipped to U.S. addresses.
