So...I have to come out of the part of my personal closet. I ... LOVE....contests. No seriously, if the prize is a book or food, I am there. I'll go do the dance of the seven veils for Hades for that stuff. Tshirts? Meh, not always...unless they are linux tshirts...and then I AM SO THERE!!!!
When I saw a post by Sharon Bayliss on Facebook announcing a contest that involved gardening, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. It's a contest...to win a book...and I get to grow something!
**SQUEE!!** I mean win or lose I still win because I get to grow something!
Ok. Enough fangurling. I signed right up and yesterday I received a package containing an envelope and a lily bulb.
Now... wait...what? Who is Sharon Bayliss? Ahh...soonest mended my friend.
Sharon Bayliss: Author of The December People series in which people fall outside the norm. Those who are different are considered "dark wizards."
In Destruction, David Vandergraff rediscovers his two lost children who have undergone terrible abuse. To his shock, the children not only claim to be dark wizards, but his wife admits she and David himself are also dark wizards. David must now keep the family together while dealing with the knowledge that they may all fall into the category of "evil."
In Watch Me Burn David must continue to battle his own personal demons about being a dark winter wizard, but also a missing girl that David believes he can help save. The situation is made more difficult by his daughters resentment that he seems to care so much about the missing girl.
"As their world crumbles, they fear the warning may be true—never mess with summer wizards, because the good guys always win."
The third book in the December People series "A Taste of Death and Honey" will be out June 20, 2016 and I am hoping to snag myself a copy! Which is why I took out that little lily bulb and put that puppy in my super-sekrit-proprietarykindofnotreally growing mix. I hope that my touch of magical love will give this lily the impetus it needs to become a beautiful bloom. :)
