Lucy Brazier, UK author of the PORTERGIRL books, has graciously offered to feature the works of indie authors on her blog in the runup to Christmas. Today, you will find my book RISE OF THE DRAMAN! Check out the post HERE. Even better, I’m offering this five-story collection for half price through the end of the month! See more below, including my Thanksgiving thoughts.
Orphaned as an infant, Croft spent his early years in the harsh confines of the Abbey, dreaming of befriending a dragon. When the day finally came, an accident leaves him utterly changed and bonded to a beast named Rueloo. Facing prejudice and fear, Croft builds a quiet life in the nest among his dragon friends – unaware his unique abilities would soon be needed.
With a powerful foe marching towards their borders, King Augustus appeals to the dragon child for his help. Croft’s example of sacrifice, kindness, and bravery inspire the people of Spiredale to unite and overcome. With the dragons, they forge a powerful alliance and embrace an entwined future neither were expecting.
In this five-story collection, join Croft and Rueloo for a series of adventures filled with intrigue, survival, love, sorrow, and triumph. Their bond is only the beginning…
“A well written fantasy with dragons and riders, kings and nobles, and enough action, humor and pathos to craft an enjoyable read.”
“This complete story bundle delivers an endless series of adventure, tears, and laughter the whole way through. Highly recommended.”
“A great epic fantasy and adventure story mixed with mythology and folk tales. Great for all ages, but younger audiences will love it more.”
“An exciting, imaginative, and delightful fantasy world full of possibilities. Dragon-Lovers Unite!”
Thanksgiving Musings, 2020
Uncomfortable. Challenging. Scary. Uncertain.
These aren’t normally the words used to describe Thanksgiving, but the pandemic has turned the world on its head and it seems nothing will ever be “normal” again. Personally, things are not going as well as I might like! I am in the midst of an extended search for work (long story) which has caused a considerable amount of stress and financial worry. My youngest son and family have all been exposed to COVID-19 and are awaiting test results. Some dear friends have lost relatives or are waiting for their loved ones to recover. Writing, my one true joy, has been spotty and difficult during all this turmoil.
Still, I am thankful for so very much! I have what I need, most of my large family is doing well, I’m still healthy, and slowly but surely, the book I’m working on is coming together. As always, God has been good to me, prompting a heightened awareness of my many blessings. I do not know your circumstances, but I hope you will take a moment to look for the good and give thanks. And please, take the recommended precautions to keep your self and others safe!
