A Timeslip Tuesday Bonus Giveaway! Enter to win Ruby Red!

Timeslip Tuesday bonus: enter to win a copy of the much-heralded time travel book, Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier!

I'm breaking a self-imposed rule here--normally, before I offer a giveaway of a book, whether from me or through the publishers, I'll read it first and offer a few thoughts on it. Today, however, I'm just offering the giveaway--I have been wanting to read Ruby Red for absolutely ages (Time travel! A sophisticated, beautiful Charlotte (who seems to move off stage early on, but still, I'll take what I can get). Here's the publisher's blurb:

"Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era!

Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon--the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust."

Working on the assumption that many of you who read my blog might also want a copy of Ruby Red, leave a comment with a way to reach you by 11:59 on the 15th of June and you may win one (lots of other people are doing this giveaway too, and lots of people who aren't me have already read it, so the odds of you winning seem good). Sorry, but it's US/Canada only.

Lots of the people who have read it like it a lot--you can see bits of their thoughts, and read an excerpt of the book, here at its Macmillan page.

And here is the trailer for the book:
