The Dazzling Dresskeeper Contest

The Bookette is very excited to annouce that she is teaming up with her friends at Prospera Publishing to host a dazzling giveaway. In celebration of today's official release of The Dresskeeper, I have five copies of this fantastic book to giveaway. And yes, of course, this is an international contest!

You can read my review of The Dresskeeper here.
You can read my author interview with the wonderful Mary Naylus here as well as read the sample chapters.
You can follow Mary's blog The Official History Blog of The Dresskeeper here.

The Blurb from Amazon:
When Picky's Mum forces her to look after Gran, who has dementia, Picky is accidentally transported back to the year 1685, where a man in a wig insists she is someone called Amelia and tries to kill her. Managing to get the dress off just in time, Picky returns to the present with the dress covered in blood. Who is Amelia? Is she dead? Will wearing the other dresses in the chest take Picky back in time too? And does she dare put herself in danger again?

To enter:

Follow me! Leave me a comment telling me what your dream princess ball gown would be like. I know I do have a couple of guys following me, so I realise this is a little sexist. So if you guys want to enter, you can just tell me what princely outfit you dream of wearing! Also leave me your email address so I can get in touch if you're a winner!

Here's my dream ball gown comment, just in case you're totally confused: My gown would be midnight blue. It would be floor length and have a huge puffy skirt. It would sparkle in the candle light. It would be worn with a matching velvet cape. I've been watching too much Merlin LOL. You get the idea!

My dream princess ball gown - It would be pink and sparkly, kind of look like a starry night with a pink background; it would have fishnet arms and maybe have a dark lightning bolt going down the side. Oh yes!

If I could have any gown, it would be the one from Bride Wars that Kate Hudson wears for her wedding. That is absolutely gorgeous. Vera Wang with a gray sash. Beautiful!

My dream gown would be a purple/violet dress with a lacy overcoat on the skirt part. It would seem gothic, but be beautiful in every way. Also, if it was dark, my butt would have the word NIKKI glowing on it(: Glow in the dark is awesome!

Hi, my dream ball gown would be white, sleeveless and with beautiful embroidery on the hemlines. It'll also be adorned with lace and pearls. Hmm, it already sounds like a wedding dress...haha! But I like white. :)

I'm a follower.

I mentioned this contest in this blog post.

My dress would be a cerulean blue, flowing all the way to the floor, slit up the side, and sheer back with a deep v-neck and we're good to go! :)

My dream gown would be floor-length, probably white, maybe another light color, and have a sort of shimmering/glowing effect, if possible.
