To celebrate the release of Cleopatra’s Moon in paperback, I’m giving away multiple autographed hardback copies as well this awesome earring and necklace set inspired by ancient Egypt.
Just so you know, Cleopatra Selene would totally wear this! And, I imagine, she would rock it out on the night she wears her mother’s golden Isis dress–the very night she decides to play hard-ball with pretty-boy Marcellus in order to get him to help her win back Egypt. Does she succeed? I’m not going to tell you–read the book! Or, at least, enter the drawing for your free autographed copy.
Where did I get this beautiful set? Why, I thought you’d never ask. My own mother made it.
Yes, that is right, my mom! She made this for me to give away quite a while ago but I found myself strangely reluctant to part with it. Every time I tried to set up the giveaway, I ended up hugging the set to my chest, stroking the pretty, shiny crystals and cooing, “Myyyyy precious!”
But, with the release of the paperback, I have to face facts. It’s time for me to surrender the one ring that will unite us all…er, I mean, for me to share this beautiful, one-of-a-kind set with others. Not easy. I mean, look at this handiwork!
With Swarovski crystals and high-quality beads, the set would probably retail about $75 or more (and yeah, I’m trying to get my mom to open an Etsy shop). So if you win it, you need to send me a picture of you wearing it so that I can show my mom, because…you know. Moms!
Also, free signed books!
Go forth and enter! a Rafflecopter giveaway
