New Release Giveaway - A Call to Arms

Howdy! Karen here with another IBGW book giveaway. I'm thrilled to announce the release of A Call to Arms: Book One of the Chronicles of Arden by Shiriluna Nott and SaJa H. I did the line editing on this book, and Jennifer did the proofreading.

While I was working on this book, I had to stop myself multiple times and remember that I was supposed to be editing the book--I got so caught up in the story that I forgot I had a job to do! This fantasy novel has a strong cast of characters who immediately come to life on the page with their individual personalities. The main character, Gib, is someone the audience can relate to--the fish out of water who is thrust into a new life he never expected, and we see the ways in which he deals with his new role, including a budding romance. But enough gushing from me. Here's more specific information about the book as well as info about the giveaway.

Title: A Call to Arms: Book One of the Chronicles of Arden
Authors: Shiriluna Nott and SaJa H.
Genre: Epic fantasy; LGBT fiction
Length: 313 pages
Buy Link: Amazon

From Amazon: War is brewing on the eastern border of Arden. The shaky truce between Arden and the neighboring realm of Shiraz has all but dissolved, and both sides are building their forces for battle. But in the quiet farming community of Willowdale, the rumors of war are the least of young Gibben Nemesio’s concerns. With both parents dead and two younger brothers to care for, Gib doesn't have time to focus on anything besides keeping food on the table. Everything changes the day he receives a conscription notice and must report to Arden’s capital.

In Silver City, Gib is forced to leave his life as a farmer behind when he enters the legendary Academy of Arden as a sentinel trainee. If called to war, he will have no choice but to go, for the Sentinels of Arden are the realm's first line of defense against the evils beyond the border.

A newcomer to this breathtaking city of stone, Gibben finds himself thrown into a world of cutthroat politics and scandals that run deeper than he ever imagined. Caught between the responsibilities to his family and to his country, Gib struggles to find balance. When he unwittingly overhears a sinister plot--that if seen to fruition will bear dire consequences for all of Arden--the young sentinel trainee must find a way to warn those in power before it is too late.

Two Kindle eBook copies of the book are up for grabs (two separate winners). Here's the giveaway entry form! a Rafflecopter giveaway
