Hurray!

It was brought to my attention yesterday during the official Pet A Kitty Day celebration that Dragons also like petting…
Totally disregarding the large hole bitten in my leg and the incessant demand for Dragon treats, I yield to the need for equality.
Let’s all join in and celebrate DRAGON PETTING DAY!

Just like with cats there are cautions and approved methods:

It is however never appropriate to poke a dragon with a stick—-

A Snippet from Seer—-WEWRIWA

An Excerpt from Seer, Book 2 the Chronicles of Marithe

Lase began to snarl at the dragon wizard who had demonstrated the audacity to push him backward, but then his eyes followed the man’s gaze to Mirandra— his Mirandra. Instinctively he barred his fanged teeth, ready to destroy this hungry-eyed man.
Mirandra seemed shocked when Lase let out an impassioned growl. The possessive sounds escaping the Glahee Prince were intended to warn the aggressor to step aside, but the man stood his ground and even touched Mirandra’s arm. Lase had enough! As he pushed his way between the two, his mind became cluttered by the fog of his obsession.

Seer Releases Aug 31st!

1987-dragon
I haven’t been around much and I owe my blog readers a little apology. My second book has taken it’s toll on my time and continues to eat up hours that I would normally spend here writing. I am hoping that you will find that patience pays off as the final version of Seer goes on sale at Amazon.

The adventure continues in this new fantasy, where dragons fly high and morgith dot the skies! I hope you will join me in Marithe for the release of Seer!

Party on fb Aug 31— 5-8pm estd.

Read It Or Eat IT!

Today is a rather unusual day for the Dragon…He has devoured much of his own work and finds his stomach very full.
The cook pot is boiling and Seer lies upside-down by the Dragon’s bloated tummy. “Enough!” He is heard to growl loudly. “The book is almost ready to share!”

The story is a dual theme of reality and fantasy.  Xavier, a young gamer with a curse, must find a way to survive as a knight in a world filled with demons and dragons. There is only one thing he truly seeks–the love of a princess.

Read It Or Eat It!

The Dragon is hungry and he considers the possibility of food – Disappearing in Plain Sight by Francis Guenette lies out a little too near to the cook pot to go unnoticed… Should he read it or Eat it? Loud noises from his belly indicate his interest.

Let’s consider the tasty contents. The setting is rural Crater Lake in Canada. There is a bakery owned by two of the characters that supplies many mouths. Lisa Marie is a troubled teen who goes to live with her aunt. The descriptions of the area give vivid backdrops to a difficult story of the
young girl’s growth. The people who inhabit the tight-knit social climate all
change during the summer. The devastating loss two years ago of Caleb, a central figure to the inhabitant’s circle of friends, finally plays out as his closest
associates emerge from their grief to deal with their lives.

PROS and CONS of Cooking –

Pros-

  1. The characters are amazing and very real
  2. the story flows smoothly
  3. the plot holds the reader’s interest throughout
  4. the relationships are detailed and well developed
  5. there is a bakery filled with yummy breads
  6. there is a garden filled with yummy flowers and vegetables

Cons-

  1. There are no dragons in the story…
  2. while the main characters seem tasty, the Dragon is too caught up in the plot top eat them

The Dragon says save this book for reading. Although a tasty treat, it will be much better consumed by the mind. This is an entertaining novel. Buy it! !!!!ROAR!!!!  It can be found at Amazon and where all delicious towns  books are sold.

Read It or Eat It!

Having devoured several apple trees and a few pilfered delights from the farm, the Dragon would like dessert. There are always books he could devour.  Pie: An Old Brown Horse by Kandy Kay Scaramuzzo is positioned within reach. A loud noise  from the Dragon’s belly indicates his appetite. The Dragon considers his options. Should he read it or eat it?

Let’s consider the more savory aspects of the story. The book takes a horse-eye-view of humans and life. Pie is a skilled cattle horse who survives near death injuries while corralling a bull. He finds himself discarded by the cowboys that have been the corner stones of his world to be stabled and sold. However, this is by no means the end of his story but rather the beginning as he finds his human and continues to have adventures.

The book has many horses…and the Dragon thinks they might be tasty, but he knows there is a social stigma attached to eating horse meat…

Besides…they are very pretty.

Cooking Pros and Cons-

Pros-

  1. There are many animals in the story.
  2. The horses point of view gives a unique perspective reminiscent of Black Beauty.
  3. The complexity of the story rests on small adjunct stories within the body of the big picture.
  4. The language is readable and appropriate to the horse point of view.

Cons-

  1. There are no dragons in the story.
  2. Many parts of Pie’s life seem very real and very sad.

Animal and horse lovers will consider this tale a treasure. The Dragon says save this book for reading. Although a tasty treat, it will be much better consumed by the heart. Buy it! !!!!ROAR!!!!  It can be found at Amazon and where large animals books are sold.
