We need your help! Thanks to our spy, Ciara Knight, we are able to communicate with you today via blogs, Facebook, Twitter and other social media.The Neumarian uprising has begun. We are fighting for freedom and equality for all, but we need your help. Ciara informed us that you might want to know more about the uprising and why we ask you to risk your lives for our cause. To answer these questions I’ve agreed to let Ciara tell my sister’s, Raeth’s, story about her captivity. It will be free for you on a site called Amazon until March 1, 2013.
Our spies have told us this will help spread the word and find more recruits for our rebellion against the tyrannical queen. You can help by simply downloading a free copy of
Weighted, a prequel to the Neumarian Chronicles. If you are intrigued and wish to follow our uprising, Escapement, book I of The Neumarian Chronicles, will be available for only $2.99 until March 1, 2013.
Here is a brief explanation of her telling of our uprising:
Ten years after the great war of 2185 the queen’s reign is threatened by uprisings and fear. In celebration of my sixteenth birthday it is my duty as princess to sacrifice a slave to be initiated into the ruling council, solidifying my mother’s empire. When my own erratic powers surface I’m captured and tried for treason. Slaves hate me, my mother wants me executed, and my only chance of survival rests in the hands of a young man, Ryder Arteres, whose sister I sentenced to death.

Now for some Miscellany
I couldn't possibly have Monday Miscellany unless I had something miscellaneous to include along with this major rebellion to report. So here are some fascinating items that I know will improve your day or your mind or something.
- Did you know that Lady Gaga had a labral tear in her hip and had to cancel the Born This Way Ball? Ouch.
- Did you know that major league baseball didn't come to the Pacific Coast until 1958? Huh? Why are we always last to get stuff?
- Did you know that the dome of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican was struck my lightning two times in the hours just after Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation. Now that's headline news.
That's all folks. Are you off to buy your copy of Escapement? Have any juicy miscellany to share?
