The Debutante Ball: A Colorful Swirl of Debut Authors

The pelt; a revealer of purpose.
The tail; an instrument of balance.
The claws; weapons of protection.
In the land of Jagumas, an uprising has begun. Ryedor, a quirky student inventor, has discovered a secret to her past that throws her into the center of the rebellion. She always knew she was meant for greater things, but now her path to greatness has been quickened...

“Imaginative and entertaining… with plot twists that kept me guessing.” –Peggy Urry, editor, ANWA
“One of today’s most talented young authors!” –Donna Hatch, author of The Stranger She Married

Pick up your own copy of Jagumaterra: A Science-Fiction Parable at Amazon or my eStore or comment below for a signed copy.

Enter the world of Jagumaterra here.

If I was to be any character in Jagumaterra, I’d be Ennoir deLeval, a Jagumaress whose mother’s death inspires her to join the rebellion and befriend Ryedor. She is the army’s healer and holds many mysterious secrets of her own.

If I were to pick an actor to play Ryedor in a movie, I’d choose Saoirse Ronan.
More Jagumaterra? I thought you might ask. ;) So these could be your prizes for commenting! Includes:
- Signed copy of Jagumaterra: A Science-Fiction Parable
- Your own Birs'e feather hairpiece (please specify color)
- Tote bag
- Bookmark with your own authentic Jagumaterran name
To increase your chances of winning, be sure to keep on top of those Shout Outs! Facebook, Twitter or wherever you go. Just let us know what you’ve done in this post!! (Rules: One entry per Shout Out per day) Please leave your e-mail address in your comment so I can arrange your Jagumaterran name and ask which color Birs’e feather you’d like.
