DragonLight & Other News

Hi Friends,

I have a new novel to tell you about today, and some more heads-up news, so here goes . . .

First, the news:

BEYOND THE NIGHT releases TOMORROW!!! June 17th is the big day, so keep an eye out here on my blog for the cool new contest I'll be running where you can win a super fun goodie bag filled with cool Beyond the Night related items. I'll be getting a new page on my website all about the contest, too, so watch here for the announcement of when that'll be available. And in the meantime, tomorrow your local bookstore should be getting Beyond the Night in (or you can always order online!) Whoo Hoo!

And now, on to the new novel for the week (besides mine :-)) ... this one's Christian fantasy, a cool dragon book (I LOVE dragons!) called DragonLight by Donita K. Paul. Here's a bit about it:

DragonLight by Donita K. Paul WaterBrook Press, June, 2008:
The fifth book in the Dragon Keeper Chronicles, concluding the drama that has been building since DragonSpell was released in 2004.

Donita K. Paul weaves eternal truths into a page-turning story and still takes time to tickle her reader with humorous characters and situations.

As Kale and her father are busy hatching, bonding, and releasing the younger generation of dragons as helpers throughout the kingdom, the light wizard has little time to develop her skills. Her husband, Sir Bardon-despite physical limitations resulting from his bout with stakes disease-has become a leader, serving on the governing board under Paladin.
When Kale and Bardon set aside their daily responsibilities to join meech dragons Regidor and Gilda on a quest to find a hidden meech colony, they encounter sinister forces. Their world is under attack by a secret enemy. Can they overcome the ominous peril they can't even see?
