It's Monday again, and here is a wonderful way to celebrate the start of a new week, a giveaway!
Today we have the privilege of sharing an electronic copy of Jennifer Carson's fantasy middle grade novel,
As the tiniest Hapenny, a race of little people, Maewyn Bridgepost spends her days from breakfast to midnight nibble scrubbing the hearth, slopping the pigs, and cooking for her guardian, Gelbane, who never spares a kind word. As if life as a servant isn’t bad enough, Mae learns that Gelbane is a troll—and Hapennies are a troll delicacy.
Years ago, a spell trapped Gelbane in Mae’s village. Ever since, Gelbane has been chiseling away the magic spells that guard the village and now Mae’s community is destined to become a smorgasbord for half-starved trolls.
Jennifer is using Kickstarter to fund her first print run of this heartfelt story. Check out the video and all the wonderful illustrations she has planned!

AH-hah! ... I knew that troll under the bridge was up to no good!ReplyDelete
This sounds like such a delightful read! I can barely wait to see the rest of the illustrations. The cover art is amazing.ReplyDelete
Her illustrator is amazing. You can see additional art by viewing Jen's Kickstarter page. I can't wait for the paperback (and I'm an ereader gal)! :)ReplyDelete
Wow! What a gem of a book, judging by the illustrations alone. I've heard of Kickstarter but don't really know how it works for writers. Very interesting.ReplyDelete
