The Great October Book Giveaway - Faery Tale


Our next book is all kinds of magical!  Written by the extra-lovely Signe Pike, "Faery Tale - One Woman's Search for Enchantment in a Modern World" is not just a book - it's an adventure!

From the cover:

"In search of something more after the devastating loss of her father, Signe Pike left her career in Manhattan to undertake a magical journey–literally. In a sweeping tour through Mexico, England, Ireland, Scotland, and beyond, she takes readers to dark glens and abandoned forests, ancient sacred sites, and local pubs,  seeking those who might still believe in the elusive beings we call faeries. As Pike attempts to connect with the spirit world—and reconnect with her own sense of wonder and purpose—she comes to view both herself and the world around her in a profoundly new light.
Captivating, full of heart, and unabashedly whimsical, Faery Tale is more than a memoir—it’s the story of rekindling that spark of belief that makes even the most skeptical among us feel like a child again."
This is exactly the kind of book you want to curl up with and get lost in.  Perfect Autumn reading!

The best part?  Signe sent an extra copy for you, so there are three books to give away!  (She also sent along a little treat to go with each book.)

As usual, just leave a comment if you want in on the chance to grab a copy of this charming book.  Tell me how we've bumped into each other, out in the wide interwebs. (Are you a blog follower, or a Twitter pal, or have you come across the blog (or my multitude of pumpkin pins) on Pinterest?) If you've left that info on a comment in the last giveaway, no need to repeat yourself, just leave your mark here in whatever way you like.

Contest rules are here if you're new to this party.

I'll draw the names of the three winners on Wednesday, October 8th at 9pm Pacific/Midnight Eastern time.  Good luck!

I, for the life of me, don't remember how, or when, we "met"... it's been too long and I'm too old and scatterbrained, LOL. Anyhooo. Please enter me in the giveaway. <3

I have been following your blog for at least the past 4 years, but I cannot remember how I stumbled across it in the first place!!

Faery Tales are the best!

I want to say I originally found you on the Twitter, then found your blog and liked what you had to say enough that I found you on the Facebooks. I know the latter two are legit.

This book sounds so great, especially since I seem to be developing physical second sight.

Now that sounds very interesting. I am a follower.

Magaly Guerrero said...

Let's see, we met after being abducted by alien faeries posing as New York street performers. Now we communicate via mirror and knife... or through Facebook, and our blogs. *teehee*

I LOVE this cover, Jen. And the tale is so promising. I always like books set in New York. I always end up looking around to see if I can recognize details in the setting.

Party!

Katy Magee said...

I followed a bread trail here from another blog (I don't remember which), and started following you... maybe a year ago? I'm so bad with memory stuff.

We've first met via our blogs (I need to go back to blogging, but time is too short these days). I'm often needing to catch up with your posts as well as other dear friends, but I am here! <3

This book sounds delicious to read on my Spring's unusual cold nights, and lovely cover.

I found your blog through Kiva Rose, I believe. I've been loving it ever since. I've been following for a couple years now.
This book looks amazing! It's seems the kind of read I could use right now :)

Stephanie Clayton said...

We've bumped into each other on Twitter, Facebook and I stalk your blog. It's not creep or anything. ;)

Birgit said...

Dear Jen,

I hope you have been enjoying October so far. While I often think of you, I think of you even more during this month. :)

Sure thing I am a blog follower, but I hope I can call myself a friend, too. (((Jen)))

Thanks for the chance to win this magical book.

Happy October,
your German friend
Birgit

I'll have a go at this one and if I don't win, it sounds interesting and will have to get my own copy anyway. Thanks for this opportunity. Oma Linda

Since the last giveaway, I have been wondering how it is that we did meet. I think you commented on my blog first. ??????

This book looks so good.

missmerrickmayfair said...

I'm a blog subscriber, been reading your posts for a while now and I think your blog is brilliant. Readers can feel your connection to the seasons through your blog posts, very earthy and natural and comforting :)

Fox and Dragon said...

This sounds like a delightful, enchanting tale. I do love stories that bring things less seen and places less traveled together with the world we know.

Signe Pike's book started my journey & changed my life forever. It was an honor to read her book, and thus it was her Facebook which led me to your wonderful site. <3

If you see the name Devata Morgana on Etsy, that is me, too. :)
I added your shop to my favorites. I think I will be purchasing London Fog in the future. :D
