Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve been away for a little while. I’ve been so busy with edits for In Chains, the third book in my Destined Series that I had to put my blogging on hold. And then, something wonderful happened. My new adult urban fantasy was released on all platforms March 1, 2014. I am so thrilled to share this story with the world.
The Land of the Shadows is set on a college campus, much like any other. My heroine, Lyssa, fights against the shadow people that have created havoc in her world. It’s an action packed story filled magic, mystery, and a love story that will have you have you laughing and crying through the pages. Trust me on this, for writing some of these scenes broke my heart. My husband caught me crying one night after I had just finished an emotion laden scene. He had to give me a hug, I was so tore up about it.
Now that it is out, I am anxious to share it with everyone. I wrote this story as my first nano story. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term Nano, there is a yearly challenge in November called the National Novel Writing Month with the goal of writing 50k words in 28 days. The Land of the Shadows was created in November 2010. I never knew that I could write a book in a month, and right after I wrote this book, In Flames flew quickly across the screen, soon followed by In Rapture. So it is fair to say that this book has already helped me change my life.
So, here is the fun part. I am doing two giveaways this month. The first one is March 22 at my Facebook party. For more details, go to my author fan page at: Author Elissa Daye. After my party there, I am hosting another giveaway event at Goodreads. I will be doing a rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the week with this giveaway.
When Lyssa was at her lowest, she found herself surrounded by dark entities formed entirely from shadows. Their darkness had eaten at her very core until she had almost nothing left to give. Tired of their corruption, the young witch decides to fight back by trying to locate their power source unaware that her attempts would lead her down a path that would change her life forever.
