6acf7b22a894bdb59204c728cbfde511

I’m pleased to announce that the author many of us have admired, Jillian Boehme, has her debut novel released today…STORMRISE! Jillian kept her identity secret for many years, pledging she’d only reveal herself when she got a book deal. Watching her progress over the years and waiting for the unveiling was like watching the final episode of the Masked Singer. This was because her talent and passion shown through every post, so by the end of her secrecy, all her fans were on the edge of their seats singing “Whooooo are you, who-who?”

Many of us learned to love her as Authoress on her blog Miss Snark’s First Victim. She gave awesome advise to aspiring writers, edited and gave critiques, and had many contests to help authors get agents. Yes, all while being incognito. She poured her heart and soul into her blog, so not know who she was still made it easy to connect to her. We knew it was a human behind the hat and not a BOT. (See what I did there? Fans and Jillian might be the only ones to get this, so reader don’t fret.)

But let’s talk about why you’re really here. STORMRISE! A combat warrior will risk everything to awaken the dragons and save her kingdom.

If Rain weren’t a girl, she would be respected as a Neshu combat master. Instead, her gender dooms her to a colorless future. When an army of nomads invades her kingdom, and a draft forces every household to send one man to fight, Rain takes her chance to seize the life she wants.

Knowing she’ll be killed if she’s discovered, Rain purchases powder made from dragon magic that enables her to disguise herself as a boy. Then she hurries to the war camps, where she excels in her training―and wrestles with the voice that has taken shape inside her head. The voice of a dragon she never truly believed existed.

As war looms and Rain is enlisted into an elite, secret unit tasked with rescuing the High King, she begins to realize this dragon tincture may hold the key to her kingdom’s victory. For the dragons that once guarded her land have slumbered for centuries . . . and someone must awaken them to fight once more.

So, without delay, go purchase it now, or ask for it from your local library! Let’s show Jillian the love and support she has shown us for so many years! And if your hoping to keep a copy for yourself without purchasing, just enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win a copy!

All my LOVE to Jillian and the hopes of a very successful debut!
