Puca blog tour


Heather McCorkle is stopping by today to share an announcement.  You guys know how much I love sharing about new books.  Take it away, Heather :-)



Hi Angela and friends, thanks for having me over (Of course!  I love it.  Okay, sorry.  Got a little excited.  Back to your post). For those who have followed my tour so far, it’s fabulous to see you again, for those of you who are new, welcome and thank you for celebrating with me! Today I’m dropping by to celebrate the release of my young adult historical fantasy about the last of the druids in ancient Ireland, To Ride A Puca. Though parts of it were heartbreaking to write, this one was a labor of love that will always hold a special place in my heart. Before I get to the goodies I brought, here is a bit about the book:

Invaders are coming to take what isn't theirs, again.

Neala wants to stand and fight for her homeland, but as one of the last druids, she may be standing alone.

Persecuted, hunted down, forced to live in obscurity, the druids have all but given up. Can the determination of a girl who has barely come into her power bring them together? Or, just when she finally finds her place among her kind, will they end up losing a homeland their very magic is tied to?

Disclaimer: This novel contains some violence and difficult subject matter. It is recommended for mature YA and up.

I’ll be giving away great prizes, a new one, every week for the next three weeks. This week I’m giving away a signed paperback of TANGLED TIDES by Karen Amanda Hooper. It is about a girl who finds herself tangled up in the underwater world of mysterious merfolk and secretive selkies. It is one of my favorite books of the year so far, trust me you’ll love it! The contest will be open until June 3rd, the winner to be announced on the 4th.

So much awesome-ness!  Click here to enter for your chance to win.
