Choices Meant for Gods Will be Book of the Day Friday

Or...Visit Author Island to see The Dragon in lights...and to win stuff

This Friday, February 22, the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods will be the featured Book of the Day at, and I encourage you to visit for your chance to win an autographed copy of the hard-cover, first-edition version of the book. DeNita will have all the details posted on the front page of the site Friday.

In the meantime, you might want to know some info about the storyline. Yes, it will be important.

For instance, you already know that Nigel Taiman, the hero in the story, stops by Today the Dragon Wins frequently to talk about the heroine, Amanda Chariss, because he adores her. But do you know how he met her? They aren't childhood sweethearts.

Chariss ended up at the Taiman estate, Arcana, one night because the evil sorcerer, Jamieson Drake, just about captured her one day on the west side of the continent of Onweald. Our surprising heroine teleported herself and her guardian wizard all the way across the map (see Megan Kissinger's rendition above) to Arcana. In one day. For those of you who haven't read the book yet, I'll just let you in on a secret: That's unheard of. Even the most talented of Geasa'n would have trouble with a feat such as that. But Chariss overexerted herself in the task and ended up on the Taiman estate front porch not just exhausted, but poisoned from the experience. She's spent her whole life running from Drake, and her arrival at Arcana is no different. Lucky for Nigel, eh?

I'll give more information about the fantasy story this week in celebration of the big day Friday, but if you're interested in reading the first three chapters (for free), you can visit my publisher's site at There's a button in the middle of the right-hand side of the page that says "Free Sample." Or, if you want to own the whole thing, go to and hit the "Click here to buy eBook for immediate download" button on the right-hand side of the page and you can own the electronic version of the whole book right now.
