A Writerly Shout – Tara Maya & The Unfinished Song (Initiate)

Every now and again, I’m asked by other lovely authors or (as in this case) contacted by their hardworking promoters from their particular press company in order to showcase a new title on my little blog here. So today’s post will be a step out of my usual rambling routine in order to give you guys a look at Tara Maya thanks to Katie Earley at Misque Press.

Of course, covers first!

Initiate is free everywhere except on Barnes and Noble (where it’s $0.99). You can download a free .epub version via Smashwords.

We hate it when it’s so hot that we can barely move and our fair skin turns red and crispy. We hate it when it’s cold and wet and our clothes are soaked through. We hate it when it’s overcast and the sky seems to be a melancholy mix of miserable.

It’s quite dreadful, really. We should just learn to be happy.
