The ship of legends…

The future is set for Lt. Commander Aden Pendar, son of a Hyrathian Duke. Poised to secure his own command and marriage to the queen’s daughter, he’ll stop at nothing to achieve his goals.

But when the Alliance denies Hyrath’s claim on the planet of Kavil and declares war on their world, Aden finds his plans in disarray. Entrenched in battle and told he won’t make captain, Aden’s world begins to collapse. How will he salvage his career and future during Hyrath’s darkest hour?

One chance remains–the Dragon. Lost many years prior, the legendary ship’s unique weapon is Hyrath’s only hope. Can Aden find the Dragon, save his people, and prove he’s capable of commanding his own ship?

Hi, L. Diane. I'm visiting from Alex's blog. That's an awesome pic of Mini-Alex.

Is that what I think it is?!.. a Mini-Alex t-shirt in the pic? Did you win it? Must. Get. One.

I surfed your blog a bit and you have a lot of interesting articles and advice. I'm glad you participated and I found you. Have a great day. Eva

I think both mini-Alex and Alex will need a vacation very very soon. Congrats to both of them.

Alex is making the rounds today in a different way than he normally does, but Alex is always making the rounds. What a busy guy!

Chrys Fey said...

Congratulations, Alex!!!!

Mini Alex is so cool! ;)

Fundy Blue said...

M-A is on t-shirt on a couch. With all this running around, perhaps he's going to change into something cooler and drier. He's got to be sweaty for sure!

Tamara Narayan said...

I'll have to click on over. A scavenger hunt sounds like just the thing to organize my blog visits today.

S. L. Hennessy said...

This one is wonderfully meta! It looks like Mini-Alex is jammin on a T-shirt of him jammin'. I LOVE it.

Yay for Dragon of the Stars release day!

Looks like Mini-Alex is product testing and approving Ninja apparel.

Mini-Alex has fallen over (I can't say fainted!) with surprise at being shown the new T-shirt designed in his honor.

Looks like Alex is sleeping on the couch, chillaxin'!

Many congratulations on Alex's new book. It was a great read. :)

It looks like Mini-Alex is laying in bed, perhaps waiting to have a cup of cocoa with Mrs. Mini-Alex?? :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Way to go, Alex!

T. Powell Coltrin said...

I wonder where that mini Alex is? hmm. Saw him surrounded by onions. Maaaybe he's in a field lying down. Yeah, that's a stretch. :)

Can't wait to read his book.

Jo said...

He is certainly lying down on the job this time. All these promotions have worn him out.

Stephen Tremp said...

Good luck to Alex! I downloaded my copy this morning.

I'm also excited for Alex.

Be well, Diane.

Shell Flower said...

Mini Alex must be flying a T-shirt ship on his own at a crucial moment to rescue his ninja captain from the horrors of book release day. May the force be with you all!

Al Diaz said...

Mini Alex is about to put on his best t-shirt and go practice some ninjutsu, jujitsu and clonjatsu.

Congrats to Alex!

~Brandy~ said...

I think that shirt might be a few sizes to big for Mini-Alex, but I bet he likes the repetitive image of himself!
Gonna check out some of your spunk now, Diane!

I have to figure out what's going on with this scavenger hunt. Things are so crazy with A to Z, I'm feeling like I'm in this big ocean, swimming my butt off to stay afloat!
