These_Broken_StarsIt’s a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

E: Extra Karou day! Dreams of Gods and Monsters GIVEAWAY #AtoZChallenge

Congratulations to the winner, SoSheri!
EE stands for ANOTHER DAY OF KAROU AND LAINI TAYLOR! What does that mean?? Presents! *giggles like a two-year old* I’m giving away a FREE ereader copy of Dreams of Gods and Monsters!!dreams_of_gods_and_monsters

By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

Common enemy, common cause.

When Jael’s brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people.

And, perhaps, for themselves. Toward a new way of living, and maybe even love.

But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz … something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world.

What power can bruise the sky?

From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?

Live the Creative Life: Free Chalkboard Sign

Following my last post on facing the fear of the blank/white page, I thought it fitting to giveaway this chalkboard sign:

the_creative_lifeI tried to make this one a little more gender neutral. I promise to make a more masculine sign! I will succeed! Again, this is free to whomever wants it. I have a slightly bigger size, so holler if you want that one. (Well, maybe not literally. Sound doesn’t travel through my computer pixels as of this decade. Unless you record it. But I digress.)

Creativity is not about being right or wrong.
