It’s that time again, the time in which I give something away. For free. And it’s all her fault.
Remember the last time I gave something away for free? It was awesome. It was like a party on This Pile with all those comments.
Here’s your second chance if you missed all the hoopla before – you’re chance to shine, your chance to sparkle, your chance to dance your way into that Big Finish like the cute chubby girl from Little Miss Sunshine. DON’T LET THE SNOOTY JUDGES GET YOU DOWN! All kinds are welcome here.
I’m giving away a signed copy of Auralia’s Colors, by Jeffrey Overstreet. It’s a poetically written book from the fantasy genre, and I guarantee you will love it. Not into the fantasy genre? You don’t know that. You just say that like you say, “I don’t like country music.” Have you even seen country music lately? What’s NOT to like about Keith Urban?? So before you go making any claims about what you do or do not like, READ THIS BOOK.
I’m not even in to fantasy, either. I’ve read, like, two fantasy books in my life. I liked those other books fine, but Auralia’s Colors was full of beautiful, artful, colorful imagery and imagination. But don’t just take my word for it – check out these reviews from Amazon.com:
â€œThe late John Gardner said that a good story should unfold like a vivid and continuous dream. With Auralia’s Colors, Jeffrey Overstreet has crafted just such a story, one that will leave readers ready to dream with him again.â€
â€“John Wilson, Editor, Books & Culture
â€œThrough word, image, and color Jeffrey Overstreet has crafted a work of art. From first to final page this original fantasy is sure to draw readers in. Auralia’s Colors sparkles.â€
â€“Janet Lee Carey, award-winning author of The Beast of Noor and Dragon’s Keep
â€œJeffrey Overstreetâ€™s first fantasy, Auraliaâ€™s Colors, and its heroineâ€™s cloak of wonders take their power from a vision of art that is auroral, looking to the return of beauty, and that intends to restore spirit and and mystery to the world. The book achieves its ends by the creation of a rich, complex universe and a series of dramatic, explosive events.â€
â€“Marly Youmans, author of Ingledove and The Curse of the Raven Mocker
Imagine a world without color, art, or any creative expression at all. Imagine a gray world in which all things beautiful are stowed away in a dark, damp, abandoned basement. And then imagine a little girl who can weave color, whose colorful creations have magical qualities.
Can you imagine? You haven’t grown up and lost your imagination, have you? If you have, Auralia’s Colors will revive it.
