Today I’m excited to announce the publication of Medeia’s latest, The Attic of Sand and Secrets. Before I do, though, I have a couple of announcements. Last Monday I mentioned I would keep track of my mini-Nano progress each week. My goal is to reach 25,000 words by the end of the month. Currently I’m at 9,190. Not too bad considering I enjoyed a three-day weekend and didn’t do any work at all.
Second, many bloggers have signed up to help me promote the release of my novella, Claudia Must Die. I’m releasing it on December 8th and it’s available on Amazon for pre-order. If you are willing to post something during the month of December please let me know. It doesn’t have to be a post dedicated to Claudia. Any mentions would be greatly appreciated!
And now for today’s feature. Medeia has released another fantastic book. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC and I read her delightful book last week in one sitting. Her main character, Lily, is such a wonderful person to cheer for and I loved the mystery. Below you’ll find a link to Medeia’s rafflecopter giveaway and she has provided each blogger with a fun fact from 1976, the year the book takes place. And now for the book:
by Medeia Sharif
disabled girl, attempts to unravel the mystery of her abducted mother using
supernatural clues from an ancient stranger, even when it means posing a danger
to prove herself, although her mind freezes when presented with big problems –
such as her mother’s abduction. With a French father and Egyptian mother, Lily
worries that her mother hid her ethnicity from her French in-laws. However,
there’s something deeper going on. Lily finds a way into an attic that’s
normally locked and encounters a mysterious, moonlit Egyptian night world.
There she finds Khadijah, an ancient stranger who guides her to finding clues
about her mother’s whereabouts. Lily becomes a sleuth in both the real world
and magical desert, endangering herself as she gets closer to the kidnapper.
is going to post one fun fact for that year. For some of you, this will bring
back memories. For younger blog readers, you’ll learn something new.
