Obligatory Gift Idea Reminder Post

One week to Christmas. Remember the ease of giving readable gifts this season! (See visual below for two good examples)
They are great books, but don’t take my word for it. You can read 4 & 5-star verified-purchase reviews on Amazon: http://ift.tt/2nAqbm9 and on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36425571.
Ebooks. Paperbacks. Audios. Pick your format, there’s something for everyone. No, really.
(Sorry, no sweeping political intrigue sagas, no grimdark grit, no bloody horror. Just good, solid characters, thrills, and surprises.)

(Editing to add the review below because wow. As a lifelong X-Men fan, I’m torn. I feel I should somehow defend their iconic goodness but am too busy melting from the power of the complimentary comparison.)

 

I wandered off to Jen’s blog this week..

Author KM Herkes is back for round two, talking about one of her kickass female characters. If you missed Part One, check it out here. Let me tell you about Grace. Grace is the protagonist in Heartwood, my current work in progress. I want to share a bit of her biography. Fair warning, it might…

It LIVES!

What’s it about? Glad you asked. Soccer moms waking up with superpowers.

That’s the one-breath pitch. The elevator pitch is this: what if your midlife crisis caused a national emergency?

In most superhero worlds, teenagers get all the fun of developing strange powers.  In my book, people get saddled with their new and unexpected abilities right about the time they’re hitting menopause, dealing with empty nests,  and finally buying the sports cars they always wanted. Plus  more than 10% of the population over 45 has to rework their entire lives around gaining powers.

It all makes for some fascinating conflicts and great character development.  It’s a damfine collection of stories and scenes if I do say so, and I do.

The universal link mybook.to/RoughPassages  will get you to the e-book on Amazon. It is a Kindle exclusive for 90 days. Only $4.99 for all that goodness.

The paperback is available from Amazon too,  but you can also get it at Barnes & Noble and anywhere else books can be ordered.  It’s $14.99.  Message me through Twitter (@dawnrigger) if you would rather buy direct from me and get a signed copy shipped straight to you for $5 extra. (US only, sorry.)

Last and best, I will be attending a lovely local convention–WindyCon— November 10-12, and I will have Rough Passages paperbacks there  along with my other novels.  More on that later this weeks.
