Book Description

Dragons. Right.

Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year-old Elena Watkins was no different.

Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.

Now Elena is in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh and the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.

Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe in…herself.

Author Bio:

Adrienne Woods

I was born and raised in South Africa, where I still live with my husband, and two beautiful little girls. I always knew that I was going to be a writer but it only started to happen about four years ago, now I can’t stop writing.

In my free time, If I get any because Moms don’t really have free time, I love to spend time with friends, if it’s a girls night out, or just a movie, I’m a very chilled person.

My writing career is starting with Firebolt, book one with the Dragonian Series, there will be four books in total and two to three books that is about the stories taking place inside The Dragonian Series.

I do write in different Genres, I have a woman’s fiction called the Pregnancy Diaries, but it would be published under another name. And then I have a paranormal series, called the Watercress series. There are about ten novels in that one.

So, plenty of novels to come out, so little time.

I hope you are going to embrace the Dragonian Series as much as I loved writing them.

Author Interview  

1. Tell us a little bit about Elena.

A: Well, Elena is sixteen, almost seventeen. Her entire life had been a blur of places. Her father moved them around every three months. The fact that he never shared the reason why they keep moving, and not having a place to call home leaves her a bit insecure. She does grow through this novel, but in the beginning she’s a bit emotional with everything that’s happening to her.

2. In your opinion, what makes a good, strong female lead?

She’s got to have flaws. There is no human being in this entire world that is perfect. I tried my best to make Elena that way. She’s not perfect, in the beginning a bit of a softy, but through determination, dreams, hope, and fear she overcomes whatever she had to in this book. The more real they are, the stronger they are. I hope that makes sense. I don’t like characters that are just so perfect. Nobody is perfect.

3. What was your favorite scene to write?

Everything. I didn’t struggle with writing this book. If I had to choose it would be between Becky getting her gift of lightning or when Elena faces whatever hides in the Sacred Cavern alone. It’s a tie.

4. What is your favorite thing about writing?

Getting lost in your world and spending time with your characters. Once I’m in it’s hard to get me out.

5. What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Never give up. There were so many times that I wanted to burn my manuscript. Not that I hated it or anything, but that it just didn’t happen. Everyone around me just told me to keep going. It’s the hardest thing to do when you just want to give up, but it’s worth it.

6. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Not a writer. Hehe. So many things. I was one of those kids that changed my mind every month. An author was one of them, but never did I imagine I would end up just wanting to be a writer. I love it.

7. Hard/paperbacks or ebooks?

I love books. I do have an e-reader, and I must say it’s very convenient to have one. It’s much easier to buy books for e-readers. But an actual book, the smell and the texture of having one in your hand will never beat an e-reader.

8. What book are you reading now?

Plenty, I am a blogger myself, reviewing books for other authors. I do believe that paying it forward is the best way to do this.

The Decending Darkness by Michael Chulsky

City of Bones, by Casandra Clare (this one’s for fun and I’m a bit of a late bloomer)

Greenshirt of Barbara Monier.

The Lost Voice by Allison Agius.

I usually read about four to five books at once.

Thank you again for having me here today Aaron, and to the readers, I hope you are going to love Firebolt as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Kind Wishes,

Adrienne Woods

Firebolt is now available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble
