Author Review and Giveaway!

I am so excited for today's post!  I have a very dear friend (in fact, she used to be a designer as well with me at BrownieScraps several years ago) and she published her first book last Fall!  I was one of the lucky ones who got to be the first person, besides family, to read her book!  It was so fun-I couldn't put it down!  I was drawn in on the adventure and finished the whole book within 24 hours!  She is releasing the second book this week and I'm excited to share all about it with you!  PLUS, she has generously offered to give away an ebook copy of her first book, on Smashwords (more about this below) AND she has offered to give away a signed paperback copy of BOTH book 1 and book 2!  Isn't that fun!

First, let me tell you a little about Kelly Walker and then about her amazing books!

Read  more about Kelly HERE

"The Souls of the Stones trilogy is set in a fantasy world, The Three Corners.  Souls of the Stones follows Emariya Warren as she navigates the three divided lands of her world, as well as the three families striving for control.  The series incorporates traditional fantasy elements such as prophecy and magic with a love story that transcends genre and time" Taken from Kelly's site.

Below is an excerpt you can read.
