Win the ARC of Magic under Glass!

Jackie Dolamore, the author of Magic under Glass, is holding an amazing contest on her Livejournal and she's giving her future fans a chance to win an ARC of her book as well as some other fantastic prizes - read more about the contest here! If you choose to enter, then please please please please PLEASE mention that you were referred by Bookalicious - as Ms Dolamore says on her site, it'll benefit both you & me! :)

I've featured the book in my Waiting on Wednesday post a while ago, but here's the summary again for those of you who missed it:
Nimira is a music-hall performer forced to dance for pennies to an audience of leering drunks. When wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to do a special act - singing accompaniment to an exquisite piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it is the start of a new life. In Parry's world, however, buried secrets stir. Unsettling below-stairs rumours abound about ghosts, a mad woman roaming the halls, and of Parry's involvement in a gang of ruthless sorcerers who torture fairies for sport. When Nimira discovers the spirit of a dashing young fairy gentleman is trapped inside the automaton's stiff limbs, waiting for someone to break the curse and set him free, the two fall in love. But it is a love set against a dreadful race against time to save the entire fairy realm, which is in mortal peril.
Sounds great and I'm so in love with the cover (the US one especially) it hurts! I think I'll print it out and hang it above my desk so I can admire it, hehe! :)

ps: According to her Twitter, the author is already working on a new book about a mermaid and a winged dude - how cool does that sound, lol!

Thanks, Kate! One more person named me so I probably don't stand a chance, but oh well, it's worth a try since I really want this! I saw that you entered the competition yourself so good luck to both of us!! :)
