The Magic Warble eBook Giveaway

My book giveaways have mostly been to the young adult crowd and this one is no exception, coming across as a middle-grade read, ages 9-13. This ebook giveaway is brought to you by the author, Victoria Simcox, and she is offering three electronic copies of the book to readers worldwide.
Enter to win 1 of 3 copies of the book The Magic Warble by Victoria Simbox. Ends 6/15.
The book, The Magic Warble, presents you with the enchanting tale of dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals, and an evil queen. It is the beginning of a series where the main character is named after the author's daughter Kristina. To sample the book, here is an excerpt from Chapter 5.
Chapter 5, Clover and Looper: Excerpt
The fairies crawled through the crack in the window, the boy first and then the girl. As the girl was crawling through she got her wing stuck and, without thinking, Kristina reached out with her finger to help pull her wing through. But the fairy pushed her away abruptly and snapped, “Well, you sure aren’t very smart now, are you? Don’t you know that if you touch a fairy’s wing you can prevent the fairy from ever flying again?”
“Come on, Clover, give her a break. She is trying to be nice to us,” the boy said. 
“Okay,” the girl agreed. “I guess I should have let you know about the wing bit. Let’s just forget it.” 
The fairies flew over to where the plate of chocolate cake was sitting on the coffee table and landed on top of it. They scooped it up with their tiny hands and then stuffed their mouths full of it. 
“Rumalock does know how to make great chocolate cake,” the boy fairy said with his mouth still full. 
The fairies were enjoying the cake so much that they seemed to forget that Kristina was sitting on the couch. She cleared her throat in order to get their attention. 
They looked up at her, and the boy, whose face was covered with chocolate said, “Oh, I’m sorry. I guess we should formally introduce ourselves.” He stuck out his tiny hand, covered in chocolate, and said, “My name’s Looper.” Then pointing to the girl fairy, he said, “And that’s my grumpy sister, Clover.”

Here's the Rafflecopter for the ebook giveaway. It is open 18+ readers worldwide and will end on 6/15/13 at 11:59 pm. There will be three winners and each will get their own electronic copy of the book.
