Release news—and a giveaway!

The paperback of my most recent novel, Dark of the Moon, has just been released! Isn't it gorgeous?
Dark of the Moon is a retelling of the myth of the Minotaur, maybe more YA than MG (although most of my books straddle the boundary), in which high-priestess-in-training Ariadne, the Minotaur's sister, struggles with the fact that her ancient moon-goddess religion is dying. Her belief system and traditions are further threatened by the arrival of the Athenian Prince Theseus. He arrives on Crete with a whole new set of beliefs and traditions, and worsehe has come to kill Ariadne's beloved brother.

When the book arrived, I'm afraid I held up the cover and had Ariadne smooch the cover of King of Ithaka.
Seriously, wouldn't they have beautiful children?

And now for the giveaway! Leave a comment here sometime in the next week (by midnight, November 20) and I'll choose someone at random to receive a signed—or not, as you prefer—copy of the paperback of Dark of the Moon.

  1. I laughed at the idea of the covers smooching--but I SERIOUSLY want to win DARK OF THE MOON, so throw my name in the hat, please.

    (And would it help to add that I really liked KING OF ITHAKA? Just saying. ;-)

    1. It really is embarrassing how goofy I get when I hold a finished copy in my hands!

  6. Ooh, those are both gorgeous covers! If the giveaway is open internationally (I'm in the UK), I'd love to enter - but no worries if it's US-only.

    Congratulations!!!
