Polar Night Blog Tour and Champion in the Darkness Release Party!

I'm continuing my mini blog tour today with a visit to the amazingly talented Lisa Regan. Lisa is the author of Finding Claire Fletcher and if you haven't read her book yet, you're missing out! In addition to being a fantastic writer, Lisa is one of the nicest people you're likely to meet. I'm excited to be at her site today talking about the strange dream I had that led me to Polar Night.

My giveaway is still going on all this week while I'm out on tour, so just sign up via the Linky Tool at the bottom of this page if you'd like to sign up for a chance to win.

Now on to the big news of the day! Congratulations to Tyrean Martinson on the release of her novel Champion in the Darkness. Yay, Tyrean!!

Tyrean is also one of the nicest bloggers around and I have no doubt that her book will be excellent. I'm excited that it is the first book in a trilogy, as it's always fun to know there are more great books coming!

Here is all the info on Champion in the Darkness

The Blurb:

Clara is younger than most trainees, but she is ready to hold a Sword Master's blade. While visions and ancient prophecies stand in her way, they also offer a destiny unlike any other. Clara is aided by a haunted mentor, Stelia, whose knowledge of their enemy Kalidess is both a bane and a blessing. As evil threatens their land, Clara and Stelia must find the strength to overcome the darkness.

Champion in the Darkness is YA Christian Fantasy, and is the first book in the Champion Trilogy.

Champion in the Darkness can be found at these links:

About the Author:

Tyrean Martinson lives and writes in the Northwest, encouraged by her loving husband and daughters, and reminded to exercise by her dogs and cat. Champion in the Darkness is the first book in the Champion Trilogy, and she has previously published short stories and poetry.

Congratulations again to Tyrean! 

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm heading over to hang out with Lisa now. :)
