Excerpt from When we were Dragons and Feature by Goodlife Fitness

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along!

If you missed my release of Questing for a Dream, take a quick minute to check it out! I have been getting some great reviews (like this one by Christian Rebel).

What else has been happening? Of course I am getting reading for NaNoWriMo, trying to decide right now between the two books I may write next.

Ruby Between the Cracks has been featured on the “Stories about Making it Happen” by Goodlife Fitness on Wattpad. Wattpad is a free reading platform, a risk-free way to check out some of my writing and make new discoveries!

And on to the teaser! I have just started reading When We Were Dragons by Brandon Berntson, an interesting fantasy based on the collision between earth and a magical world inhabited by… surprise… dragons. I couldn’t help but be attracted by the gorgeous cover and intriguing title of this book.

“These mortals are a surprising people,” Karen said next to me.

I nodded. I didn’t want to mention my cynicism as to how half of them were just as willing to lynch us an hour ago.

Brandon Berntson, When We Were Dragons

Justin Silas is a dragon who can change into mortal form at will. When his world, Paramis, collides with Earth with the aid of powerful magic, destruction ensues. Cerras, a giant god made of amber quartz, stirs, restless in his century-long slumber, and dragons are now living side by side with mankind on New Earth and Paramis Altered.

But all is not well.

Lane, a traitorous dragon to her own kind, is turning dragons against mankind and mankind against dragons. She longs to usurp the throne of Cerras, hoping to destroy the Giant God with his own power. Yet fate lies with Charlie Underhill, a small boy from Earth, who – since the collision – harbors a special kind of magic all his own.
