Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia who now blogs at To Be Continued. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.
I have lots of giveaways going on this month. Check out my top left sidebar!
This series will on tour with iRead Book Tours from February onward.
The Dawn of Destiny audiobook project is a full adaptation of the first book in the Epic series. It's not your typical “audiobook,” even though technically that's what this is. When people hear “audiobook,” there’s a certain type of thing that usually comes to mind. Most likely it’s the thought of someone reading a book to them, occasionally with music playing in the background. This isn’t that.
What you’re going to hear in this project, is more of an audio “experience,” the audio equivalent of a summer blockbuster movie. Over thirty voice actors played a role in this. This is ear-splitting sound effects, bombastic music, and characters shouting back and forth in the middle of a war zone. This is unlike anything you’ve ever heard.
Posted this week:
Botticelli's Bastard by Stephen Maitland-Lewis (with giveaway)
Currently reading with my son:
The Blood Mile by Andy Lyberopoulos (It's got a great cast of quirky characters!)
I met Andy, the author, at the Toronto International Book Fair, where his book was featured. Andy was super friendly and fun to talk to. He told me he would let me know when he was coming to Montreal. I hope to make my son meet him. We are enjoying his book!

Andy set up a booth that won an award for originality. It consisted of a rusty old tractor (the real thing! Andy regaled us with tales of how that actually got it into the convention center) along with Sawyer, the chicken, a mega screen that played scenes of farmland and a background replete with bales of hay, rakes and a grass floor. Kids (and us included) loved it!
