Bloodstone Saga Tour & Contest

I am excited to be a part of this tour this week provided by the lovely Heather & Danny at Kismet Book Touring!  The Bloodstone Saga is by the one and only Courtney Cole and she has been gracious enough to play Fast 5 and offer up some amazing goodies for you!!!

About With My Last Breath - goodreads, Amazon, B&N
Just when Harmonia thought she had saved everyone she loved, the unthinkable happens and her life is shattered… in the space of just one breath.

Now, she is left alone to shoulder a challenge, because she alone can fulfill a prophecy and restore Olympus. She knows she can succeed; she is the daughter of gods, after all. But will doing so cause her to lose herself?

To find Zeus’ sword, she is forced to return to a place that she knows will cause her pain. But she willingly goes in order to save everyone she loves, because pain alone cannot kill her. Or can it?

I have always loved Mythology... so this is going to be great!!! 

Now for her Fast 5

Stand alones or series?   Ack.  This one is hard.  They both have merit.  But if I had to choose…. I would say series.  I like really getting to know my characters.

Ancient Greece or Dark Ages England?  Ancient Greece.  I wouldn’t want to wear all of the layers of clothes from the Dark Ages.

Guinevere or Heleyne?   Heleyne.  (And not only because of Lucan…)

Mythology or reality?  Mythology…because anything can happen.

Knight in shining armor or boy next door?  Knight in shining armor. I have a thing for strong, brave men.  (But who doesn’t?)

 About Courtney Cole - website, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads
Courtney Cole is a YA novelist who loves thunderstorms, cake batter and insane amounts of coffee. She wrote her first story at the age of 9, although thankfully it has remained hidden away in an old cedar chest beneath musty blankets. Her more recent efforts are much better.

Now for the goodies!!!
Contest Info: Courtney is offering two give-aways for those following her tour!

The first give-away is a daily one with a unique prize for each stop!  Courtney is offering a signed bookmark and an authentic Greek Drachma, necessary for paying the ferryman to the Underworld! (The daily prizes may be different at each stop..hint hint...check them all out!)

To enter the daily give-away, contestants must leave a comment on the tour post.  

The second give-away is for a grand prize of a gorgeous Kindle Touch skinned with the cover art from the final book in the Bloodstone Saga: My Tattered Bonds!

I don't know about you, but I think this is absolutely gorgeous!!!!!
