Deborah Harkness - Shadow of Night Contest and Giveaways!!!

SHADOW OF NIGHT BY DEBORAH HARKNESS.  Penguin Group (USA) Inc. July 2012. $28.95. hb. 592 pp. ISBN #: 9780670023486.

My review of this amazing book is forthcoming on the web pages of the Historical Novel Society.  loved both books (first was called A Discovery of Witches).

On July 10th, Viking will publish this novel.  Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont, witch historian and vampire geneticist respectively, have time-walked to the 1590s Elizabethan England on their hunt for the magical alchemical manuscript Ashmole 782 - its sudden appearance and disappearance has upended the delicately ordered world of magical creatures (witches, vampires and daemons), threatening to unleash unprecedented metaphysical chaos.  SHADOW OF NIGHT has been called "a must-buy by Library Journal and critics everywhere are making it mandatory summer reading.

The publisher of this unique tale is offering a specially designed "Ashmole 782" temporary tattoo and a set of 6 buttons for giveaway along with a finished copy of SHADOW OF NIGHT.  The buttons each display a different alchemical symbol which you will come to understand as you read the novel. To get to this giveaway, click here and here.

On Deborah’s Facebook page, you will find a contest leading up to the book’s publication. Every Friday from June 1st to July 6th, four winners will be selected to receive an advance copy of SHADOW OF NIGHT signed by Deborah and sample bottles of two perfumes specially selected to represent the scents of Matthew and Diana. To enter,  click on this link to the contest page starting today. 

Some exciting news for readers who haven't gotten around to A Discovery of Witches: Amazon is offering the e-book as their "Deal of the Day" on June 10th, where readers will be able to buy it for just $2.99 on that day only.  Then you will be ready to read SHADOW OF NIGHT when it hits stores!
