Now, the book I will be sending you will be truly Gothic-- maybe a very old copy that is a bit worn. It just depends upon what I have and which book you want. :) I am also choosing ones that I consider strong works in the genre. Some of my choices are not ones that you easily find at secondhand stores or libraries.
These are the choices. If you win, I will announce it and email you by 9/16, and you can let me know which book you would like me to send to you:
1. The House Next Door-- by Anne Rivers Siddons. This novel is top notch and leans toward Gothic horror, but it's not gory-- just really frightening. In fact, in my opinion, it's the best one Siddons has ever written.
2. Vanish with the Rose-- by Barbara Michaels. This one is a nice introduction to Michaels' work.
3. Nine Coaches Waiting-- by Mary Stewart. This work is a seminal one in Gothic genres. It's set in Paris and in a castle on a hill (or mountain), too.
If you already have or have read these three and don't want another copy, just wait until the next contest rolls around! :)
So, go ahead and post a comment on one of my blog entries (any of them is fine), and that will automatically enter you in to win. The odds are good on this contest since my blog is new. I'm excited and can't wait to send one of these books to the winner!
