New Book To Come Out Next Month for Heather McCorkle

I met Heather in the summer of 2009 at the Hawaii Writers Conference, and have counted her as a wonderful friend ever since. She has a combination of determination and generosity that is amazing, as evidenced by her series of terrific books in the past two years and by her unstinting support of her friends and fellow authors. It is my pleasure to help her celebrate the cover reveal of her newest novel: THE DRAGON EMPIRE. Below is all the information you need to learn more about Heather and to know that you've got to have a copy of this new addition to her fast-growing shelf of her books. For more info, go to Heather's website, listed below.

Congratulations, Heather~ THE DRAGON EMPIRE looks fantastic!


The Dragon Empire by Heather McCorkle -- February 2013 / Compass Press
On Yacrana, dragons stand at the top of the evolutionary ladder instead of humans. Such an advanced species is not without its issues though.

There's trouble in the Dragon Empire, the kind that could start a war between dragons and the races of people. Hidden factions of dragons believe they should rule the lesser races, not simply stand aside and allow them to develop as they will. Having lived so long in peace, the Emperors turn a blind eye, many oblivious that such attitudes even exist.

Despite being only an architect class, emerald dragon, Grendar is willing to risk banishment and death to stop that which his rulers refuse to see. The hope of peace lies not within the scaled breast of a dragon however, but within the hands of a group of people. But if the hidden factions have their way, these people won’t live to fulfill such a destiny. With a reluctant seer at his side, Grendar must leave his precious Empire for the outside world to save those that will one day save his kind. 




AUTHOR BIO
Heather McCorkle
I am an author of fantasy, in all its many sub-genres. Living green, saving endangered species, helping other writers, and supporting fabulous authors are a few of my passions. I am also a volunteer for the IS Foundation which works to make the world a greener place. When I'm not volunteering, writing, or surfing my social networking sites, I can be found on the slopes, the hiking trails, or on horseback. As a native Oregonian, I enjoy the outdoors almost as much as the worlds I create on the pages. No need to travel to the Great Northwest though, you can find me here, on my blog, and Monday night's on Twitter where I co-moderate the #WritersRoad chat.
