Oh My Godmother: The Glitter Trap - Event Announcement and Giveaway

by Barbara Brauner and James Mattson
Publication Date: May 14, 2013 (Hyperion Books)

Middle school is far from a fairytale for adorkable misfit Lacey Unger-Ware. When Lacey ends up with popular girl Paige Harrington's smart-mouthed fairy godmother, Katarina, trapped in her hair, life gets more magical--just not in a 'prince charming' kind of way.

Katarina's wings are too damaged to continue her fairy duties, and Lacey must take over as Paige's fairy godmother. Distracted by her new responsibilities, Lacey's in danger of losing her best friend, Sunny. Can Lacey get the hang of magic, make Paige's dreams come true, and survive middle school?
Barbara Brauner and James Iver Mattson's debut novel is full of heart and charm. Get ready for the Oh My Godmother series to cast a spell on tween girls!

Today, Barbara Brauner and James Mattson stops by to share about a giveaway they are doing for Oh My Godmother: The Glitter Trap.  Stop by GoodReads to enter to win a signed copy of the book.  And for those of you living in Southern California, don't forget to stop by Once Upon a Time Bookstore in Montrose on Wednesday, July 24th for Adventures Inbetween and meet Barbara and James.

As a special treat I asked them to answer a quick question: It's summer time.  Can you name 3 characters from books that you would like to go on a summer vacation with and where would you go? 

Professor William Waterman Sherman from The Twenty-One Balloons. He’s probably still got a stash of diamonds from Krakatoa, so we could balloon during the day and stay in the best hotels at night.

Nancy Drew from the original edition of the series. We’d like to visit her in River Heights because there’s sure to be a good mystery. And we’d look good in that blue roadster.

Claudia and Jamie Kincaid from From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. They've already done the Met, so we’re thinking a couple of weeks at the Louvre would be nice.

The character we don’t want to go on a summer vacation with is Harry Potter, because we’d have to stay with the Dursleys, and that wouldn’t be any fun at all.
