Today is the gift of giving, in the spirit of Yalda
There have been a few people who helped me early on in my career. Candace Knoebel was one of them – I did one of my first interviews for her blog – you can read it here – and she was one of the first to review The Shadow of Black Wings.
She is now a published author in her own right, and her first book, “Born in Flames” is doing great; it’s being nominated to literary awards left and right, and it’s one of the most popular Young Adult books on Goodreads. So to repay the favor given me all those months ago, I’m going to sponsor a copy of “Born in Flames” today.
You need to have an Amazon account and be able to receive gifts. The gift-away will run for a week, and then I will choose the winner at random. All you need to do is fill out this form:
Red mirrored scales race up my arms as the haze of pain blurs my vision. My bones crack, breaking to realign. I scream. It is then that the realization of my unavoidable fate sinks in; I am of a dying race. I am dragon.
Aurora Megalos, orphaned and teetering on the edge of adulthood, thought finding her past would curb the sting of being an outcast. Having no memories of the time before she awoke on her foster mother’s doorstep, she yearns for the emptiness inside her to be filled. With her fellow orphaned best friend, Fenn, by her side, she has nothing to lose and everything to gain. But something powerful stirred within her that she couldn’t explain. Something wanted out.
In the dark of night, a crazed Seer, dubbed Mr.Creepy, erases everything she’s ever known with an impending prophecy. She now faces two paths. Return to her true home to protect a dying race against a growing evil, or stay hidden in the safety of our realm with a shot at a true love. With a vengeful Arch Enemy stopping at nothing to see her dead, she’s running out of time; a decision must be made. What would you choose?
