July 20-25, 2015. Pursuing Prissie, the first book in the Pomeroy Family Legacy collection, released a month(ish) ago, and as promised … I’m kicking off a party for readers. We’ll chat about the book, and I’ll give you some ways to play along. There’ll be a giveaway with fabulous prizes, and a Q&A session with the cast. This post covers the “rules” and a rundown of activities. The cast post and new angel poll are now up. Enjoy!
Familiar faces, new friends, family traditions, high hopes, lurking danger, angelic archers, gentle romance, and apple pie.
Pursuing Prissie. Ten years after the events of The Blue Door, Prissie Pomeroy experiences an angelic reprise when she meets another little boy she shouldn’t be able to see. Asher seems to be using his Caretaker’s powers very carelessly, but he claims to be Sent. His meddling mixes up Prissie’s life just in time for Ransom Pavlos to return to West Edinton. The newly credentialed pastry chef hopes to make a place for himself in town, preferably at Prissie’s side. But she’s too distracted by a very different pursuit to notice. An old enemy finds his way back to the Pomeroys’ farm, and the Guardian who knows him best must step forward to keep Prissie safe.
Read it! If you haven’t yet read Pursuing Prissie, the digital edition is currently available from Amazon for $5.99. Yes, I’ll release print editions eventually, probably by summer’s end. If you (or your parents) have Amazon Prime, you can read Pursuing Prissie for FREE in the Kindle Online Lending Library. Find it on Amazon >>
Review it! While I don’t like to pester, one of my goals with these parties is to give you incentives to review my books. They’re the #1 best way for readers to support ANY author. Let’s face it, reviews are good for business. Of course, my other main goal with these parties is to have fun … so let’s get that started! : )
Tried and True. I finished the new exclusive epilogue to this Threshold Series prequel yesterday—”Flight and Hedge.” It picks up where Chapter 300 left off and offers a glimpse of Tamaes’s first months on the farm while waiting for the birth of his charge. Sneak Peek:
Lucan and Tamaes dropped to the yard as Jayce and Naomi left the house, carrying packs, bundles, and their boys.
“Nap?” asked three-year-old Tad. “Nap with daddy?”
“Sure, sure. We’ll have a good rest under the trees.”
“Duck! Duck!” exclaimed little Neil, who was one-and-some and rarely still.
His mother sighed, “There he goes.”
“I’ve got him,” Jayce said, lengthening his stride to catch the errant toddler before he could make any more progress toward the duck pond.
Naomi called out, “Ducks in a row!”
Tad obediently trailed after his mother. Jayce set Neil on his shoulders and fell in step behind them, and Lucan and Tamaes brought up the rear. The pace was easy, with frequent stops as Tad chased grasshoppers in the long grass and picked dandelions for his mother.
Tried and True e-book – I’ll give away 3 copies of this story via Amazon gifting. (It’ll be available to anyone and everyone later this week! ♥)
Watercolors in your Mailbox – I can’t paint like Koji, but my mom’s a watercolorist. I’ll raid her stock and make prizes of 7 notecards that she’s had printed. Here’s a peek at her workspace out in the gallery (which is right across the yard from the house).
Signed Copy of Pursuing Prissie – You’ll have to wait a bit for this one, but when Pursuing Prissie is hot off the presses, I’ll sign a copy and send it off to one grand prize winner.
