RE: Magic Under Glass, Give it a try Giveaway! $20 BN GC Giveaway!



With all the controversy surrounding Jaclyn Dolamore's Magic Under Glass I felt the need to give my small menial opinion.   I will be posting my review of the book after her book signing tonight.  I will say, I loved the book.  Now being said all that I don't know the nationality of the model on the cover. If Bloomsbury decided to put a caucasian on the cover well we all know it would be wrong on MANY levels. It is outraging and angering. They have been caught doing this previously.   So this is the part that really hurts, Magic Under Glass is a beautifully written book. You can feel the love she poured into the book. Yet people are choosing to boycott Bloomsbury (I don't agree with Bloomsbury's actions) but In the end you are only hurting Jaclyn Dolamore a debuting author.


The Magic Under Glass, Give it a try Giveaway!
So because of this I am giving away a Hardback Magic Under Glass.  I want her to be given the chance to be heard. You can do what you will with the paper cover.

I might give away 2 if I buy another spare one tonight. They might also be signed if I can get her to sign them.

Erika said...

This is very thoughtful of you! I do agree, boycotting Bloomsbury hurts the author and that's not something anyone should want to do! Dolamore needs support right now. The best way to do that is read her work.

I have to agree with you about hurting the debuting author. I, for one, am very curious about Dolamore's work and will be getting the book one way or the other! And it's such a shame since the cover is so gorgeous...if only the publisher would pay a bit more attention!

I'd love to enter for either contest. (Although I'd prefer a signed book, I'd be quite happy with a gift card--and probably end up buying the book anyway!)
