Today it’s my pleasure to reveal fellow author Sherilyn Putnam’s first mid-grade novel The Dragon Child (The Dragon Adventures, Book 1). I met Sherilyn at a Facebook event earlier this year and didn’t take long to consider her a personal friend of mine. I highly recommend giving her a follow on social media (links below). She’s got a great personality and is quite the talented writer. Check out the blurb and cover for her upcoming novel below and feel free to ask her anything in the comments.
When a gypsy boy stumbles over an egg near the ocean he doesn’t know just how much it will change his life. Once the egg hatches, the boy’s world will never be the same, nor will it be for the creature that comes out of the egg. Named Dane after the boy’s father, the creature will begin a journey to find his own family. Along the way, he’ll learn that family is sometimes who you choose, not who you are born to.
About the Author
Sherilyn Putnam is the pen name of an author who decided holding in the stories for younger people just wasn’t an option. Thus a whole new persona emerged, ready to share her love of fantastical beings and adventurous characters with the young readers of the world. Sherilyn is almost exactly like the ‘other’ author, being she lives in the deep south, has two daughters, a hero husband and lives in a tiny house ruled by two insane cats and a miniature dachshund with a Napoleon complex.
Her books for young readers almost always have the same message, one she feels very strongly about, “be who you are, not who others think you should be.”
Connect with Sherilyn Putnam
Robert “Sharky” Pruneda is a native Texan, video game “enthusiast” [addict], and fan of all things horror. He left a career in the newspaper industry in 2011 to pursue the life of a nocturnal author, brainstorming new and creative ways to creep out his readers. He doesn’t only write horror though. He also pens the occasional family-oriented tale just to keep from going completely nuts with all those creatures of the night whispering in his ears. When he’s not pulling ideas out of his twisted brain, you’ll likely find him on social media or fighting alongside his fellow gaming buddies where they all get shot up into Swiss cheese (or turned into little bite-sized chunks because of “Sharky’s” obsession with explosives). Medic!
