Contest Round 19: Kim Harrison

I've looked at my calendar and I've noticed that we are down to the last two weeks of this massive Contest Extravaganza. Yes, it has now been going for 19 weeks. I've given away close to two dozen signed books by some awesome authors, but I've got a few more in my secret stash of goodies that I've been saving. After the contest concludes, I'll be returning to my regular reporting of writing about writing, my progress on the books, and just my general thoughts on life. Stick around for the ensuing chaos and insanity.

But I've got a really good goodies this week that I've been saving. Months ago, I kicked off this Contest Extravaganza with a signed hardback copy of Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison. Well, this week, I've got a signed hardback copy of her latest novel White Witch Black Curse to give away. If you read Kim Harrison, this is definitely something that you want to add to your collection!

Here is a quick description of White Witch Black Curse from Publishers Weekly:

"Confusion reigns for characters and readers in the complicated seventh urban fantasy outing (after 2008's The Outlaw Demon Wails) for witch detective Rachel Morgan. Rachel's reputation is in tatters—to save humanity, she used powers that are considered evil—and she's still devastated by the mysterious death of her boyfriend six months earlier. Her attempts to solve his murder bleed into a case involving an emotion-sucking banshee, and soon Rachel has to bring in her PI partners—Ivy, a bisexual vampire, and Jenks, a pixie in existential crisis—along with empathic psychiatrist Ford and the banshee victim's father, Federal Inderland Bureau captain Edden. Harrison's unique vampire mythology unduly complicates world-building, and newcomers will be desperate for a glossary, but the nearly nonstop action nicely plays off the poignancy of Rachel's difficult life."

Oh, you know that you're dying to get your hands on this one! Here are some quick contest rules:
