[CLOSED] Enter to WIN - a signed copy of Ghosts of Nagasaki

 Happy New Year Readers and Book Lovers!!!
To kick of an exciting year of reading author Daniel Clausen and I will be giving away 3 signed copies of his latest book Ghosts of Nagasaki. This giveaway is open internationally but please note only one winner will be chosen from the international entrants and the other two will be chosen from the US. More information on the author can be found here.
"One night a foreign business analyst in Tokyo sits down in his spacious high rise apartment and begins typing something. The words pour out and exhaust him. He soon realizes that the words appearing on his laptop are memories of his first days in Nagasaki four years ago. Nagasaki was a place full of spirits, a garrulous Welsh roommate, and a lingering mystery. Somehow he must finish the story of four years ago--a story that involves a young Japanese girl, the ghost of a dead Japanese writer, and a mysterious island" excerpt courtesy of Good reads
