Welcome to The Dragon
Or...if you've just come from DragonCon, good morning and welcome to The Dragon

It was a long and eventful Labor Day weekend in Atlanta and I plan to blog about it for a few days here, but I'll start by welcoming everyone who stopped by the Choices Meant for Gods table waaaaaaaaaay back in the warm little corner of the Hilton basement by the emergency exit doors. It was a joy to meet everyone. Tomorrow, I'll post about the Jorin Taiman sword contest. Today, I'm just thankful to get this simple image on here to announce that I'm back home and on my way to the office...

If you didn't pick up the book to carry in your luggage on a plane home from DragonCon, by all means, check it out online! There's information about it here, of course. The Word of the Day entries from May 21 to July 21 include the Old English and "other" influences for some of the fantasy words I created for the novel. There are a couple of deleted scenes you'll find in the search feature under creative key words like "scene." You can also read the first three chapters in a free sample at my publisher's site at under the fantasy authors, or you can go straight to and read all the five-star reviews for Choices Meant for Gods. I completed an online book tour July 21 so there are a plethora of online sources with information about Fantasy Author Sandy Lender and the high fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods out there...Google is your friend. But I invite you to stop back by this site frequently for updates on the novel, its sequel due out by the end of the year, writing tips and promotional ideas, and the ever-popular Word of the Day that I swear I'll start again...if for no other reason than to make Jeni happy...

Well thank you Ms Sandy! I do appreciate your thoughtfulness there - and that you will attend to my need to expand my vocabulary too! Seriously, I have missed your "word of the day" routine and would love to see it return.
