Fraction of Stone and I is for Ilima Todd

I'm so excited to spotlight Kelley Lynn's new book FRACTION OF STONE on my blog today. Kelley is one of my favorite writers and I'm so excited for her!

Fraction of Stone by Kelley Lynn
Release Date: March 21st, 2013 by Sapphire Star Publishing
Genre: YA Fantasy

Book Description:

Wind tunnels, torrential rains and earthquakes tear apart Casden. The cause of the world’s imbalance is unknown, but the mounting occurrences suggest there’s little time before life ceases to exist.

Rydan Gale and Akara Nazreth are the only humans with the ability to wield magic. The tattoo on their necks and the discovery of an ancient book, dictate they are the key to the world’s survival.

But the greatest obstacle for saving mankind isn’t the bizarre creatures, extreme betrayals and magic-fearing men hunting them.

It’s that Akara doesn’t believe the world is worth saving. 

About the Author:

Eventually the day came when the voices in Kelley Lynn’s head were more insistent then her engineering professor’s. So instead of turning to her Thermodynamics book, Kelley brought up a blank page on her computer screen and wrote. Somewhere along the way she became a Young Adult author.

Kelley was born and raised a Midwestern girl. She’s not afraid to sweat and fills her free time with softball, soccer and volleyball. (Though you probably don’t want her on your volleyball team.) She occasionally makes guest appearances as a female vocalist for area bands.

You can find Kelley hanging out at her blog, titled in her name, as well as the group blog she shares with her fellow critique partners, Falling for Fiction. Kelley is a member of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators.

Congrats, Kelley! And now for my A to Z post for the letter "I". I'm kinda cheating today, lol.

Ilima. She can frequently be found eating avocados and quoting Jayne from Firefly. When she does get around to writing, she cries over her characters then complains to her CP's 'cause writing is too dang hard. She likes listening to music really loud and will do ANYTHING to avoid washing the dishes.

"Ten percent of nuthin' is...let me do the math here...nuthin' into nuthin'...carry the nuthin'..."

Do you like Ilima? (careful) Who are your favorite "I" characters? (Yeah, I know I'm reaching here using myself for the letter I, but this one was hard...and DPK *is* planning on turning me into a zombie in his book, so I'm good :)
