Release Date: April 25, 2013
Book Designers: Blue Harvest Creative

The Seal Island Trilogy has a brand new look!

Book Description:
American detective, Sam Holt, has a knack for finding people who
shouldn’t be found. When his last case almost killed an innocent woman, he swore
off detective work forever. But when that same woman asks him for one last
investigation–to find her husband’s long lost mother–Sam cannot refuse. Sam hopes this case will prove to everyone on Seal Island, especially clairvoyant artist Glenna McClure,
that he has changed. But what Sam doesn’t realize is that the closer he gets to
the truth, the more danger Glenna is in.
Glenna will do anything to stop Sam from finding this woman, even
if it means teaming up with a powerful sorceress she knows she cannot trust. But when the petals of a mysterious
night-blooming rose begin to turn black, Glenna realizes an even darker
force is at work. To protect the island and the people she loves, Glenna will have to face a
terrible curse that has haunted her all her life before the final petal fades to
ash.

“A ray of light, a stain of shadow, shall endure to breathe life and death into the future” 

The war between the Guardians and the Shadow Riders ended in total devastation. The final battle killed all the dragons and left nothing but fields of ash. A small clutch of dragon eggs was all that remained to provide hope for the future.

Five hundred years later, the ability to use magic is a death sentence and dragons are remembered as a curse. But the unhatched dragons sing for their riders…and soon six lives will be changed forever.

The elements of magic are drawn together as the dragons’ call leads them on an epic and dangerous journey of discovery.  They soon learn everything they’ve been taught to believe about magic and dragons is wrong.

With the last of the dragons and the world at stake, they will risk everything to heed the call.

But an evil from the past soon threatens their discovery and newfound joy. Shadow Dragons ride the dawn once more…

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT EMBERS AT GALDRILENE

“Evil lurks at every corner and eventually bursts, bringing forth a vivid confrontation that kept me at the edge of my seat, turning page after page.” ~ Annamaria Bazzi

“The characters are well thought out, and the plot is great. I loved Galdrilene itself, and the idea of the dragon eggs singing to those who are meant to hatch them.” ~ The Crooked Word

“I was so impressed by this excellent story! The characters and setting were vividly detailed, and the storyline was unique and enticing. I loved that the characters had strong bonds and connections to other beings, and Trosper did a magnificent job with pacing and stringing together the plot.” ~ Katie Jennings (author of the Dryad Quartet and When Empires Fall)

“There is something about dragon stories that is truly captivating and Trosper has certainly encapsulated this in her novel. This story follows the lives of young men and women as they escape a life of control and fear to find their true talents and true selves… Expect to be entertained with dragon fights, romance and witty comebacks in Trosper’s creation of an idyllic world. You are even given a rare insight into the workings of a dragon’s mind.” ~ Elizabeth Wright of Bestchicklit.com

“Anne McCaffrey’s Legacy… I was extremely wary when this book was immediately evocative of every story Anne ever told about dragons, their ‘Impression’ on their destined riders, and the immutable bond between the two. Like Asimov’s laws of robotics, Pern’s dragon lore is indelibly etched as ‘fact’ in my psyche and anything markedly different does not sit very well with me at all.

I am immensely pleased to say that A.D. Trosper did not let me down. There was enough of Pernish dragon-lore to satisfy my need for continuity, whilst at the same time enough differences to make this clutch of dragons her very own. Well done Ms. Trosper!” ~ Richard King

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Here is where I’m supposed to talk about myself in third person for whatever reason. But, even though there are a lot of people in my head, referring to myself in third person still sounds too strange.

Born in Kansas, I spent a lot of my childhood moving around. I lived in Kansas, Oklahoma, Washington State (around Seattle), and southern California. I had many great adventures growing up. I’m now settled down in Kansas with my wonderful husband, three children, my wonderful dog Katie, assorted cats, and small flock of chickens.

I’ve been an avid lover of fantasy since I was young child. Dragons, elves, fairies, dwarves, and other denizens of the fantasy world as well as magic have always fascinated me. As I grew up, I developed an interest in vampires, zombies and my interests branched out to take in paranormal and urban fantasy.

I don’t have any special writing credits to my name other than a wildly active imagination and the ability to form that imagination into written stories.

“Lionel’s Christmas Adventure” By Paul R. Hewlett Available Now On Amazon Plus Enter To Win A $25 Amazon Gift Card Or An eBook Gift Pack!

Photobucket

PhotobucketFirst, let me thank Blue Harvest Creative for having me and Kathy at I Am A Reader Not A Writer for hosting the Got Great Giveaways Hop. Thanks also go to Candace at Candace’s Book Blog and Lori at Pure Imagination for hosting the Saturday Situation Giveaway linky. This is the third stop on my blog tour for the release of Lionel’s Christmas Adventure. To see a full list of tour dates, click here.

Amazon gift card and a 3-pack of my ebooks. Now, onto my post.

Recently I was asked a really good question during an interview and it really got me thinking. The question appeared simple and straight forward, “When did you consider yourself an author/writer?” The obvious answer is, I’ve always been a writer, or when I wrote my first book, but I had to think about it for a bit more.

                                      Click “like” if you liked the trailer!                                                              
Sure, I’ve always liked to write and I’ve always had story ideas in my head, but have I always considered myself a writer? Lionel’s Christmas Adventure is my third published book, so I’ve probably considered myself a writer for a while right? Good question. I felt very proud upon completion and publication of my first book, but I still didn’t consider myself a writer. There was so much I didn’t know, and still don’t, and so much to do. In reality, I felt like just about anything but a writer.

After a lot of thinking and consideration, I decided that I really considered myself a writer the moment I took the plunge and signed up to co-author the Sher A. Hart: My Written Art blog. I debated and considered doing it for a while, weighing the pros and cons. When it came down to it, I decided that I love to write. I made a concious decision to do more of it. Writing the blog has exposed me to writing about a variety of things, research, creativity, marketing, and the dreadful writing to a deadline. Sure, I was nervous, but what better way to find out if writing was for me or just a hobby like doing puzzles?

PhotobucketIt has been several months and I must admit that I love it. It has been really enjoyable and beneficial to me. It has made me better at writing and I have been writing more in every aspect. I must point out that my blog partner, Sher, is a wonderful person. She has been patient with me and very giving in the sharing of her knowledge and time.

When I began writing on her blog, that’s when I consider myself a writer. I write because I love it. It is who I am and who I want to be. I realize that I may never make much money writing, and I haven’t picked out my tuxedo to walk down the red carpet during the movie premier of Lionel’s Grand Adventure just yet. That’s okay though, I write because after a lot of soul searching and stopping and going I have realized that I am indeed a writer.

I hope you enjoyed my post. If you want to learn more about Lionel, make sure to pick up Lionel’s Christmas  Adventure: Lionel Learns the True Meaning of Christmas, available now on Amazon. Also check out the first two books in the Lionel’s Grand Adventure series: Lionel and the Golden Rule and Lionel Turns the Other Cheek. For more information about author Paul R. Hewlett click here. You can also keep up with what’s new on Lionel’s Grand Adventure FB page.

 Again, many thanks to Blue Harvest Creative for hosting me, I had a blast! Thank you! My next stop on the blog tour is tomorrow on Katheryn Lane.
Now onto the giveaway. As a thank you to the reader’s, I’m  giving away
a $25 Amazon gift card and 3-pack of my ebooks. Be sure to leave a comment & tell us when you considered yourself a writer,or whatever it is you do!

This special is only good for Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23 so don’t miss your chance to get your copy this weekend!

“A ray of light, a stain of shadow, shall endure to breathe life and death into the future” 

As a Border Guard, it is Vaddoc’s duty to turn himself in and accept the death sentence with honor when he discovers he can use magic. But the ancient song of the dragons calls to him. Although pulled by duty and the honor of his family, the song proves irresistible. When he is offered sanctuary in Galdrilene, the old home of the dragons, he leaves duty and family behind to answer the call of the Song.

 He is not alone in hearing the Dragon Song. The elements of magic are drawn together when he is joined by Kirynn, Kellinar, Serena, and finally, Mckale and Maleena who are bound to each other in a way they don’t yet understand. It’s a journey that reveals everything they have been taught to believe about magic and dragons is wrong. With the last of the dragons and the world at stake, Vaddoc and his companions will do anything, even cross through the realm of the dead, to reach a future they never thought possible.

This price is available for the U.S Amazon store and the U.K Amazon stores, only. 

 

What people are saying about Embers at Galdrilene

 “Everything seemed to come alive and hit at the emotions of each and every moment the author described. It was as if you were there, experiencing the sorrow or joy alongside the characters, which is no easy feat and one that only truly talented writers can claim as their own” ~ Katie Jennings

 “There are a lot of Point-Of-View characters in this one. Some of them have several chapters throughout the book, others have much less POV time. It could have flopped, but it didn’t. It was done well, and it worked.” ~ The Crooked Word 

“Expect to be entertained with dragon fights, romance and witty comebacks in Trosper’s creation of an idyllic world. You are even given a rare insight into the workings of a dragon’s mind.” ~ BestChickLit.com 

“When I was very young – though a voracious reader of anything I could lay my hands on – the very first book I ever personally bought was Anne McCaffrey’s ‘Dragon flight’. I’ve since bought the entire series in softcover about 3 times, testament to how well loved and frequently read they have been. 

That being said I was extremely wary when this book was immediately evocative of every story Anne ever told about dragons, their ‘Impression’ on their destined riders, and the immutable bond between the two. Like Asimov’s laws of robotics, Pern’s dragon lore is indelibly etched as ‘fact’ in my psyche and anything markedly different does not sit very well with me at all. 

I am immensely pleased to say that A.D. Trosper did not let me down. There was enough of Pernish dragon-lore to satisfy my need for continuity, whilst at the same time enough differences to make this clutch of dragons her very own. Well done Ms Trosper!” ~ Richard King 

“The intricate details about each character, like Kellinar the thief, or Maleena the young woman shunned by the people of her village, brings the story to life. The bonds of friendship are remarkable and those bonds push them to the limits for each other. Another interesting aspect of relationships in this book is the one the riders develop with their dragons.

Evil lurks at every corner and eventually bursts, bringing forth a vivid confrontation that kept me at the edge of my seat, turning page after page.” ~ Annamaria Bazzi
