Giveaway: 2 Signed Copies of Secrets of the Sands by Leona Wisoker

Thanks to Mercury Retrograde Press, I have two signed copies of Leona Wisoker’s novel, Secrets of the Sands to give to two lucky winners.

ABOUT THE BOOK
A THIEF CHOOSES THE WRONG VICTIM.

A DESERT LORD ABANDONS HIS LANDS

A YOUNG WOMAN ACCEPTS A STEWARDSHIP.

THEY ALL FIND THEIR DESTINY ON THE SANDS.

Idisio cuts the wrong purse and finds himself bound to serve a desert lord who just gave up his wealth, his lands, and his name to wander. His new master is the lone survivor of a massacred family and might be insane, but serving him is better than life on the streets.

Lady Alyea accepts the king’s mission to assume stewardship of the desert lord’s abandoned fortress. But the southern desert is a harsh world of violence, suspicion, and politically tangled family clans who worship the old gods. All her courtly manners are useless as she struggles to gain status in a deadly race for a prize she doesn’t fully understand.

Out on the sands, the harsh glare of the sun reveals more about the world—and themselves—than they ever wanted to know.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Leona Wisoker is the author of the fantasy novel Secrets of the Sands, Book One of Children of the Desert. Her work is fueled equally by coffee and conviction; she has been known to take over the entire dining room to deconstruct a difficult novel-in-progress. Addicted to eclectic research and reading since childhood, she often chooses reading material alphabetically rather than by subject or author. This has led her to read about aardvarks, birds, child-warriors, dragons, eggs, faeries, ghosts, horses, and many other random subjects.
