If you're a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in...come in...

CASTLES AND MAGIC AND KNIGHTS...OH MY!!


Today I'm participating in my first cover reveal, for Donna Hosie's book: 

(cue drum roll)

THE FIRE OF MERLIN

And, if you haven't read Book One, Search for Arthur, I have some awesome news!!
        
To celebrate the release of FIRE OF MERLIN on NOVEMBER 30th, Donna is offering a FREE download of SEARCHING FOR ARTHUR, for the first five days of the month!!! I am having some trouble with my blog not allowing me to post links. Sorry about that, but you can just go to Amazon to get your FREE copy! :) I have to admit, I haven't read these books yet, but I think they sound like a ton of fun. As soon as I post this blog, I'm off to download mine.

And, when you're done with book one, you won't have long to wait, because on NOVEMBER 30th, Natasha and friends are back in:
THE FIRE OF MERLIN

     Seventeen-year-old Natasha Roth and her older brother, Arthur, are reunited once more with the Knights of the Round Table. Unfortunately their joy is not shared by Arthur’s girlfriend, “Slurpy” Samantha, whose hatred of Natasha has not been lessened by time or distance since the Roth family relocated to London.
      But Natasha’s happiness is short-lived. 
      The knights come with ill news from Logres: a magical darkness has fallen over the land. The Lady of the Lake, Nimue, is battling against her former lover, Merlin, whom she imprisoned before the enchanted sleep. He has been freed and Natasha soon discovers that her own actions the previous year unlocked more than just a gateway between the past and the present. When “Slurpy” disappears, a frantic Arthur decides they must leave the 21st century once more and return to Camelot. 
      With her beloved Sir Bedivere at her side, Natasha follows the sound of the bells and leads Arthur and the knights back into Logres. But there are more than bells ringing in her head. Natasha starts to suffer from terrifying visions in which she sees the destruction of Logres.
      As the darkness continues to infect the living, the people start turning on each other, accusing outsiders of witchcraft. Terrified that Natasha will be hurt, Sir Bedivere takes her, the dwarf Byron and Byron’s sister, Guinevere, into the safety of his father’s castle. Yet nowhere in Logres is free from fear and suspicion, and Sir Bedivere unwittingly leads Natasha into a terrifying chain of events in which time itself is manipulated.
      Natasha must uncover the truth about the danger to Logres and those she loves. Who is the real threat to Arthur? Can myth and legend become fact? What is the secret that “Slurpy” is now hiding?
      And for the love of all things holy, when will Logres invent saddles?


So, if you love  magic, romance and legends that turn out to be true, check out Searching for Arthur and Fire of Merlin!!! I hope you guys like them!

    1. No problem, Donna! I actually felt really bad that the post wasn't better. I tried a bunch of times to put in the description of Search for Arthur, but my computer wouldn't let me copy and paste anything. Then I erased the copy and pasted description, and typed the entire thing in, but I did it without restarting my computer, which reacted like I'd just copy and pasted again. All it would give me was a huge square of white where the words were supposed to be. It was doing the same thing with any links I tried to do. Those two white bars up top around the words aren't actually even supposed to be there. Blogger just randomly threw them in, but they looked like I'd meant to do it so--since I worked on trying to FIX this post for well over an hour, I finally just left it the way it is. But, I felt bad about not including the description and links. SORRY!
