Enter to win a signed copy of M.K. Hobson’s The Native Star

M.K Hobson’s The Native Star is one of our favorite things ever, and we’re giving away one autographed copy to a lucky reader. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post!

Here’s a little bit about the book:

It’s 1876, and business is rotten for Emily Edwards, town witch of the tiny Sierra Nevada settlement of Lost Pine. With everyone buying patent magicks by mail-order, she’s faced with two equally desperate options. Starve—or use a love spell to bewitch the town’s richest lumberman into marrying her.

When the love spell goes terribly wrong, Emily is forced to accept the aid of Dreadnought Stanton—a pompous and scholarly Warlock from New York—to set things right. Together, they travel from the seedy underbelly of San Francisco’s Barbary Coast, across the United States by train and biomechanical flying machine, to the highest halls of American magical power, only to find that love spells (and love) are far more complicated and dangerous than either of them could ever have imagined.

If you’re still not convinced, here’s the book trailer! The text flies by pretty fast, but yes, folks, it does say “giant raccoons.”

The contest is now closed, and the winner is SIRIA! Congratulations! And thanks for entering, everybody!

    A good deal of the books that have gotten my attention of late are historical fiction set in the 19th century. MK Hobsons Native Star is Oneida knew nothing about till I saw it at Borderlands. That’s what I get for letting my podcastle eps pile up.

    This is a period of US history I know little about, and Dreadnought Stanton sounds like my kind of warlock. Pompous and scholarly. What better way to learn. Perfect.
