Congratulations and a Giveaway!

Today I'd like to celebrate my critique partner and one of my best friends. Her name is Aubrie Dionne. She is a wonderful person, has a beautiful way with words, and is so very talented in more ways than one. She also received a three-book deal with Entangled Publishing for her space opera series, the Star Odyssey series.

According to Aubrie's "About Me" on her blog, she writes, "I am an author and a flutist in New England. I teach flute at the university level and own my own music business, where I play with my husband at weddings and other special events. Represented by Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge Literary Agency. My short stories have been featured in Mindflights, Niteblade, Silver Blade, Emerald Tales, Aurora Wolf, A Fly in Amer, Moon Drenched Fables and various anthologies. Science Fiction Space Opera series coming in in August 2011."

Besides her many short stories, she is no stranger to having novels published either, including Messenger in the Mist, Dreams of Beauty, and The Voices of Ire.

In honor of Aubrie's accomplishments, I'd like to give away a copy of her space opera novella Nebula's Music. All you have to do is comment on this post. I will announce the winner on May 16th.

Book Description: Each note brings her one step closer to the truth.

When the cyborg Nebula plays the piano she experiences memories from a time before her creation. These memories…which involve a captive rebel fighter being held on their ship…bring with them complex human feelings and awaken a desire for her to discover her origins.

Radian is the long lost love of the woman from which Nebula was made. He’s vowed to avenge his finance’s death and rescue her sister from the Gryphonites, a fierce race out to enslave the galaxy.

Nebula grapples with her identity and how much of who she is comes from someone else’s past. She is not the woman that died, yet she is undeniably drawn to Radian.

Together Nebula and Radian seek to rescue his fiancé’s sister and end the Gryphonites’ cruel reign. But can Radian learn to love again and can Nebula accept a past made from someone else’s memories? 

You can read my review here.

Please check out Aubrie's blog, website, and follow her on Twitter.
