Today's forecast for St. Peters, MO: Partly cloudy, high 45 degrees, chance of flurries tonight.
I enjoy studying book covers. Don't you just love this one? The colors of the dress are so rich and elegant, and only the bottom half is shown. Notice the word Secrets is in script and the words Pleasure Palace are printed in large, bold letters? Lots of thought went in to creating this cover. Definitely makes me want to read the book.
If you're on a limited budget, you might get lucky and win a copy. Woman's Day magazine has teamed up with publisher Simon and Schuster to give away 30 copies of Secrets of the Tudor Court: The Pleasure Palace by Kate Emerson.
Here's a description from the Woman's Day contest website: "Rich with romance, intrigue and 15th-century historical detail, the novel features characters straight out of history—including Jane herself—set against an authentic background. "
No purchase necessary to enter the contest. Entry period: Tuesday February 03 2009 - Friday April 03 2009. Click on this link or the link above to enter. Good luck!
