Dragon Detective comes out in a few days! October 19th is coming so quickly. It's time to hold a giveaway! One e-copy of Dragon Detective to a lucky commentator. First, though, I want to say a little about the book:
Dragon Detective is different from the previous books in the series. Up to this point the series has been focused on Dane and Mercury. Their quest to save the dragons and to build a family was only supposed to span two books--Dragon Consultant and Dragon Dilemma. I added a third book--Dragon Deception--in between those two when I realized there was another story to tell. In Dragon Detective the story leaves Dane and Mercury and instead focuses on Nickel and on Nickel's love interest (if I say the love interest's name here I'll give it away, so read the book to find out who!), but that's not the only change.
Unlike the first three books, Nickel's two--Dragon Detective and Dragon Soldier--were written as a pair. Readers of this series will be used to each individual book having a completed plot and that there would be a significant time jump at the start of the next book in the series. Dragon Detective doesn't end that way: it's not a cliffhanger, but it's clear the story isn't complete. Luckily, it picks up again almost immediately in Dragon Soldier.
Each book in the series has been approximately 30 thousand words long. As I was writing Nickel's story I realized I was going to need more than that length to tell it properly. For the story to fit correctly into the series as a whole it needed to conform to the length so I ended up splitting Nickel's story into two. Dragon Detective is part one and Dragon Soldier concludes in part two.
I was looking forward to writing Nickel's story from the moment the idea for his plot manifested. He's always been one of the more interesting kits with such an interesting story. I'm really excited for Dragon Detective to come out so his story can finally be in my readers' hands.
Dragon Detective comes out on October 19th. There's still a few more days to pre-order the book for a 15% discount so buy your copy today: https://lessthanthreepress.com...
It might seem like a long wait, but Dragon Soldier, the second part of Nickel's story, will come out on April 5, 2017. I will let everyone know when it's available for pre-order.
And now, the giveaway:
