Prudence Read-Along, An Introduction (plus Giveaway)

What: It is with great excitement as host that I announce a read-along of the first book in the Custard Protocol series by Gail Carriger: Prudence!

Prudence (The Custard Protocol, #1)
Title: Prudence
Author: Gail Carriger
Release Date: March 17, 2015
Publisher: Orbit

When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama (Rue to her friends) is given an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female would under similar circumstances - names it the Spotted Custard and floats to India in pursuit of the perfect cup of tea. But India has more than just tea on offer. Rue stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis and an embarrassing lack of bloomers, what else is a young lady of good breeding to do but turn metanatural and find out everyone's secrets, even thousand-year-old fuzzy ones?

Why: To prep for Imprudence, the second book in the series, which releases July 19, 2016!

Who: Whether a first, second, or twelfth read, anyone can join the fun and discussion!

When: Sunday, June 12th through Saturday, July 9th (4 weeks)

Where: I will be cross-hosting the read-along here (Skye's Scribblings) and on the Goodreads Gail Carriger Fan Group. There is also a Twitter thread at #PrudenceRA.

How: After a launch post June 12th I will cross-post brief four-chapter reviews on my blog and the Fan Group every Saturday starting June 18th summarizing what transpired in said chapters and commenting on my favorite tidbits, then encourage the sharing and discussion of participants on the Fan Group, my blog, and Twitter. Each review will also include a special series-related question answered by the author herself!

Questions? Comment below or on the Fan Group post here!

Giveaway: In honor of the read-along I'm holding a giveaway here on Skye's Scribblings for a Custard Protocol button set procured from Gail Carriger's Zazzle merchandise account! To enter, start spreading the word now and then join the discussion during the read-along!
