[This giveaway has ended] No, it’s not a special sale on vegetables (although I must confess that I’ve participated in some of those crazy Asian supermarket runs). But as a countdown to the upcoming publication of my book on August 6, I’ll be giving away some ARCs (advance reader copies of the book) and an iPhone 5 case!
What’s your book about again?
In 19th century colonial Malaya, a young Chinese woman receives a marriage proposal for the son of the wealthy Lim family. The only problem is, he’s dead…
“Choo’s clear and charming style creates an alternate reality where the stakes are just as high as in the real world, combining grounded period storytelling with the supernatural.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Choo’s remarkably strong and arresting first novel explores the concept of Chinese “spirit marriages” in late-nineteenth-century Malaya through the eyes of the highly relatable Li Lan…With its gripping tangles of plot and engaging characters, this truly compelling read is sure to garner much well deserved attention.” (Booklist)
A Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Fall ’13 pick, Indie Next List pick, The Bookseller Editor’s Pick, and a Library Journal Barbara’s Pick, The Ghost Bride takes you from historic Malaya to the elaborate Chinese world of the dead.
What’s Shanghai Tang, and why are you giving away an iPhone case from them?
Shanghai Tang is a luxury Asian lifestyle brand, guaranteed to feed feverish dreams of yourself wearing slinky (yet tasteful) cheongsam or, alternately, escorting a fascinating lady wearing said cheongsam. I do not personally own any clothes from them as they are, er, not in my budget, but I have wandered into several of their stores from NYC to Singapore and sighed over their offerings.
Ok, I’m sold! So what’s the giveaway?
From June 27th to July 8th, you’ll have a chance to win 1 of the following 3 prizes!
- 2 autographed Advanced Reader Copies of The Ghost Bride
- 1 Shanghai Tang iPhone 5 case
This is an international giveaway for the books. The iPhone case is unfortunately limited by store shipping to US addresses only. Winners will be announced on this blog and via email. To enter, simply do one (or more!) of the following – follow me on Twitter, like my Facebook page, join a mailing list, or retweet this giveaway. Use Rafflecopter to enter here so I can track your entry, and good luck!
