I got the cover for my first book The Last Dragon!!

I just got the cover for my first book, The Last Dragon! Of course I had to share it with you! The Last Dragon is Book 1 in the Dragon Speaker series. I also have the covers of the next two (and final) books in the series–Book 2: A Hero’s Worth by D.M. Ouellet and Book 3: Draco’s Fire by E.L. Thomas–which I’ll share here with you. Let me know what you think.

The books are YA hi-lo fantasy–high interest, low vocabulary books for reluctant teen readers. I think they’re well written, and can also be enjoyed by fantasy lovers.

Okay. (bouncing up and down) Here’s my cover:


And here are the covers for the second and third books–you can get them all in September.

Aren’t they neat? They were designed by Charlie Hnatiuk.

    Hi Cheryl,
