Indie Author Giveaway Hop (International)


Hi, everyone!


Welcome to Stop #234 of the Indie Author Giveaway Hop!

This blog hop is being hosted by Kathy at I'm A Reader, Not A Writer and co-hosted by Krazy Book Lady.

Over 200 blogs are offering a giveaway from an Indie Author or Small Press book, and we are all linked up together so that you can easily hop from one giveaway to another! The hop runs from Wednesday, June 13th through Tuesday, June 19th.


Details of my giveaway:

 One lucky winner will win a paperback copy of The Lure of Shapinsay (Young Adult Paranormal Romance), T-shirt, and swag from Indie Author, Krista Holle!








Ever since Kait Swanney could remember, the old crones of the village have been warning her to stay away from the selkies. They claim that like sirens of old, the seal men creep from the inky waters, shed their skins, and entice women to their deaths beneath the North Sea. But avoiding an encounter becomes impossible when Kait is spotted at the water’s edge, moments after the murder of a half-selkie infant.

Unexpectedly, Kait is awoken by a beautiful, selkie man seeking revenge. After she declares her innocence, the intruder darts into the night, but not before inadvertently bewitching her with an overpowering lure.

Kait obsesses over a reunion deep beneath the bay and risks her own life to be reunited with her selkie. But when she lands the dangerous lover, the chaos that follows leaves Kait little time to wonder—is it love setting her on fire or has she simply been lured?







About Krista:

Krista has been writing since she was nine-years-old when she scribbled out her first adolescent work entitled Merish, the completely illogical but heartfelt story of a girl who was part mermaid, part fish.  As a young mother, Krista added to her repertoire some middle grade readers and picture books she’s wary of mentioning. 

In 2004, Krista began an intensive four year period working part-time as a critical care nurse while homeschooling her four children.  During this hectic time, courses of writing were taught and learned, and rules of syntax were scolded to memory. Ironically this period of study equipped Krista with the tools she needed to enter the next phase of her writing experience. 
Now equipped with the mysteries of the comma, Krista was ready to tackle a much bigger project—a full-fledged novel.
 
After the kids were enrolled in public school in 2009, it occurred to Krista that there is an insatiable audience of women and girls who want to read books filled with stories about true love, not just vampires.  Convinced that there was an unfulfilled audience waiting for what she love to write—romance, she sat down in the family’s dungeon, a.k.a. the basement, and began to furiously type.  In no time, her first novel was drying on crisp white paper. 

Krista currently resides in Midlothian, Virginia with her husband, four daughters, and an eccentric cat with a weird attachment to the family’s socks.  She continues to write obsessively every chance she can get.
