Monday Miscellany: Super Cover Reveal Plus A Bit of Epub News About The Princess of Las Pulgas




Cover Reveal for The Dragon Empire by Heather McCorkle
February 2013
Compass Press



Cover Design by CP Design

On Yacrana, dragons stand at the top of the evolutionary ladder instead of humans. Such an advanced species is not without its issues though.

There's trouble in the Dragon Empire, the kind that could start a war between dragons and the races of people. Hidden factions of dragons believe they should rule the lesser races, not simply stand aside and allow them to develop as they will. Having lived so long in peace, the Emperors turn a blind eye, many oblivious that such attitudes even exist.

Despite being only an architect class, emerald dragon, Grendar is willing to risk banishment and death to stop that which his rulers refuse to see. The hope of peace lies not within the scaled breast of a dragon however, but within the hands of a group of people. But if the hidden factions have their way, these people won’t live to fulfill such a destiny. With a reluctant seer at his side, Grendar must leave his precious Empire for the outside world to save those that will one day save his kind. 

AUTHOR BIO
Heather McCorkle
I am an author of fantasy, in all its many sub-genres. Living green, saving endangered species, helping other writers, and supporting fabulous authors are a few of my passions. I am also a volunteer for the IS Foundation which works to make the world a greener place. When I'm not volunteering, writing, or surfing my social networking sites, I can be found on the slopes, the hiking trails, or on horseback. As a native Oregonian, I enjoy the outdoors almost as much as the worlds I create on the pages. No need to travel to the Great Northwest though, you can find me here, on my blog, and Monday night's on Twitter where I co-moderate the #WritersRoad chat.

My News: After going at it for two years, I've gotten my rights back from the publisher that went out of business and **DRUM ROLL HERE** The Princess of Las Pulgas is now an ebook. You can't see me, but imagine the jumping up and down. WAIT. Here's a picture.

Since The Princess has been in hiding for so long, I'm giving away five ebooks to the people who Tweet, Like, Tag, mention . . . whatever on fb, Amazon, Tweeter or blogs.






This can't be truly Monday Miscellany if I only talk about books, can it? So here's two of my favorite quotes for the week.

"Meetings are indispensible when you don't want to do anything." John K. Galbraith

"A desk is a dangerous place from which to watch the world." John le Carré

Now I'm out of here. I'm tired of this "dangerous desk place," so it's time for a hike and maybe a few more jumps while I'm outside. What do you do to celebrate a victory, or reaching a goal? What do you think of Heather's cover for her Epic Fantasy Novel?
