A New Book, and a Contest, About Salem -- What Fun!

With many thanks to Destination Salem for letting me reblog their blogpost:

Brunonia Barry's second novel, The Map of True Places, will be released on May 4, 2010. To celebrate the release of the novel, William Morrow and Destination Salem have created a sweepstakes to give a lucky reader and their guest the opportunity to visit Brunonia Barry's home town... bewitching Salem, Massachusetts.

Brunonia's first novel, The Lace Reader (2008) was also set in Salem, where Towner Whitney's journey took her from Salem Common to Derby Wharf to the Salem harbor islands and back again. If you have not yet read it, The Lace Reader is available in paper back from booksellers and shops throughout Salem.

The Map of True Places is another suspenseful novel set in the historic streets of Salem - along Turner Street, at the House of the Seven Gables, the Salem Athenaeum, and out and around Salem harbor.
