This event has ended! We look forward to seeing you next year!
The fabulous people at Roc (Penguin) are sponsoring this giveaway. They are giving away 5 sets of the Clockwork Empire books by Steven Harper. This is The Doomsday Vault (my review) and The Impossible Cube (my review). This means there will be 5 winners and each winner gets BOTH books. Pretty awesome, right? I LOVED these books! (Please note that I am not responsible for the shipping of these items and will not be held responsible if they do not arrive or arrive damaged. However, please feel free to contact me if you do not receive them and I will look into the matter and do my best to assure they do arrive.)
Rules: Giveaway has ended
This is only open to US addresses. If you are international but have someone in the US who can provide their address you are welcome to participate. I apologize that we cannot provide shipping outside the US.
You must be 13 or older to accept these winnings.

The challenge for you is one of two things. You pick which one you would like to do. Or you may do both and get two entries instead of the just one.
The books featured for the prize are The Doomsday Vault and The Impossible Cube. In the books inventions play a very big part. When people in this world are infected with the Clockwork Plague they can become crazy smart and invent some insane things. For this challenge describe something you would like to invent. It does not have to be steampunk-like. There are no limits. (Meaning it doesn’t have to be realistic. It could be a time machine, a way to stop time, a flying contraption… anything.) In a comment do your very best to describe this item in the best detail possible. You may also create a blog post for your entry if you would like. Remember to leave a way to contact you in the comments! (Email or twitter)
Because I love Steampunk fashion so much I would love to see some items YOU love that are Steampunk themed. Post pictures on your blog or make a pinboard on pinterest and link me to it in a comment. Please be sure to have the source listed if you post on your blog. (If you don’t have a blog or pinterest you may post on facebook as long as I can see it.) Remember to leave a way to contact you in the comments! (Email or twitter)
Because I want to see some effort put into the entries I will pick a winner each for the most creative invention from Challenge One and the most creative from Challenge Two. The other 3 winners will be randomly selected from the remaining entries. Obviously you can only win once.
Thanks so much for stopping by the Parasol Parade! Be sure to stop by all the other fantastic booths listed below. Or by checking out the Carnival Map which makes it even more fun because it’ll feel more like a carnival!
