The Make Your Mark With Some Sort of Mark Contest

I am very excited to announce The Novel Emporium's very first contest!
The Make Your Mark With Some Sort of Mark Contest, to be exact(or the ever more simple,The Smudge Giveaway,for short).

The prize for this first TNE contest is rather fitting as Claudia Osmond is the first author I met in person.
And what is the prize, you ask?
A signed copy of her debut novel Smudge's Mark!

Last December,Claudia Osmond was named my favourite 2009 Debut Author and her novel is an exceptional and original story that I believe both children and adults will enjoy. For more information on the novel,check out http://smudgesmark.com/.
