Signed Copy of Gail Carriger's Etiquette and Espionage Plus Steampunk Swag

This item is now closed! Thanks
New York Times' Bestselling author of the Parasol Protectorate series, Gail Carriger, has started a new series for young adults and I'm offering up a signed copy of Etiquette & Espionage! Plus, some kind members of the Sacramento Steampunk Society have donated some steampunk swag to round out this listing.

About Etiquette & Espionage:

It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to Finishing School.

Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is a great trial to her poor mother. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper manners--and the family can only hope that company never sees her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. So she enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But Sophronia soon realizes the school is not quite what her mother might have hoped. At Mademoiselle Geraldine's, young ladies learn to finish...everything. Certainly, they learn the fine arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but the also learn to deal out death, diversion, and espionage--in the politest possible ways, of course. Sophronia and her friends are in for a rousing first year's education.

Set in the same world as the Parasol Protectorate, this YA series debut is filled with all the saucy adventure and droll humor Gail's legions of fans have come to adore.

And the swag! Tousled Dolly has donated a key necklace, and Terrie Lohrey Taylor has donated a pin and bookmark (look at the little shoe charm on the bookmark!)

This item will close on March 14, 2013, at 11:00 PM EST. Any bids placed after that time stamp will not be honored. Once the auction closes and payment from the highest bidder is confirmed, the book and swag will be mailed to the address you provide. This item is open to U.S. addresses only.
