A writing friend of mine, Dawn Lairamore, just had her first middle-grade novel published:
I’m really excited–not only for Dawn, but also because she’s giving away a signed copy here!
Before I get to the giveaway details, here’s a little more information about Ivy’s Ever After, which Dawn describes as a, “fun, fractured fairy tale about a princess and a dragon who team up to thwart a (not-so-nice) handsome prince.”
“The kingdom of Ardendale has always locked its princesses in a white tower guarded by a dragon. It’s the only way to lure gallant young princes to the tiny, out-of-the-way kingdom to marry them. But Ivy is a princess who doesn’t care to be rescued, and Elridge a dragon afraid of being slain. Neither wants anything to do with Romil, a scheming prince from the frozen North who has his own less than romantic reasons for wanting Ivy’s hand in marriage. Never mind that humans and dragons have loathed each other for centuries, it isn’t long before this feisty princess and rather undragonly dragon have fled the tower and set off on a perilous journey to find Ivy’s long-lost fairy godmother, the only one who might help them escape the not-so-fairy-tale fates that await them.
Full of humor and high adventure, Ivy’s Ever After is a twist on the typical princess-needs-rescuing-from-a-dragon storyline so common in traditional tales, featuring a princess and a dragon who actually team up to thwart the handsome prince.”
Don’t forget to stop by here and watch the book trailer.
“Evenly paced with humor to match, this fractured fairy tale will delight tween readers.” –Kirkus Reviews
