The Book of Speculation Sweepstakes!

Simon Watson lives alone in a house filled with memories of the family he no longer has–his mother, a circus mermaid, drowned not far from their home and his sister, Enola, ran off to read tarot cards in a traveling carnival. He can deal with the loneliness, but when Simon receives a mysterious book that speaks of a curse on the women in his family, he has to act. July 24 could bring an end to his sister if Simon can’t discover a way to stop the curse once and for all. You can start solving this mystery with Simon now by reading or listening to an excerpt from the book!

We want to mark Drowning Day by giving two lucky winners a chance to win a prize pack containing a copy of Erika Swyler’s The Book of Speculation, out now from St. Martin’s Press, and a deck of tarot cards!
