Spring Countdown Blitz - Day 7

Liz McCraine is an outdoor enthusiast, military spouse, and mother. She loves to ride horses and go hiking with her family. When she isn't writing or corralling children, Liz enjoys relaxing with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. Her motto is: If it doesn't have a happy ending, I don't want to read it.

Fairy tales are not a thing of the past.

In the kingdom of Aggadorn, seventeen-year-old Larra Stoneworth of the village of Farr discovers she has a strange magical power. But the law for humans having such magic is simple: death. When word of Larra’s gift reaches the palace, the king’s son is sent to capture her and bring her to trial. During their journey from Larra’s small village to the city, Larra faces dangers unlike any she has ever imagined. Though Larra’s magic may seem a threat to some, another far more sinister threat emerges that endangers the life of everyone—even the king himself.

An innocent girl with powers she didn’t know she had. A noble prince sent to imprison her. A powerful counselor gone mad with jealousy. An evil plot. A death sentence. And above all, the strength of one young woman to do what is right, no matter the consequences.

And let's look at some Q&A's with Liz!
1.      Which did you find more difficult: writing the book or marketing it? Why? Definitely writing the book. Getting the story down on paper was the easy part; it was the rewriting that almost killed me. It was my first manuscript and I made a lot of dumb mistakes. 
2.      What is the best advice you received growing up? Don’t give up. They are the truest words I have ever heard, and I thank my mom for saying them to me.
