A couple years ago, I sat down and started writing a book. I hadn't realized how much that would change my life.
Shortly after completing the first draft of Wilde's Fire, I met Dawna Raver through a critique partner matching site. I'd already encountered a few wackos through the service, so I was insanely on edge about reading her work and marking it up. But, after a chapter or two, lots of google chats, and many phone calls later, I knew I liked her.
Now I call Dawna one of my best friends. I also call her every afternoon on my way home from work. Me and the phone don't get along very well. Most of the time my kids make too much noise for me to carry on a conversation. But between 4:00 and 4:15 on my way to the Pentagon, I enjoy one of my favorite parts of the day (my other favorites are seeing my kids and husband, writing, and then sleep--in that order).
This is all very long winded. I'm here today to introduce the cover of Dawna's DEBUT novel, Colour Wielders.
And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess lives.
Quinn Sinclair is clueless to who she is. She thinks she's an ordinary young woman—well, mostly ordinary—living an ordinary life with her less than loving mother in Conifer, Colorado. On the night of
her birthday, Quinn finds herself betrayed by a man who sends her life spinning out-of-control.
As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she finds herself transported into a Magykal battle forever changing her life.
Arik Morgaine—Demigod bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm—tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn Sinclair for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans. Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers.
Can the two of them come together and save the Magykal Realm from being destroyed by the Darkest of Magyks, or will powers beyond their control destroy them and their world forever?
Colour Wielders will be available in digital and print formats from Curiosity Quills Press April 19, 2013. Go to dawnaraver.com for more updates.
