Birthday Giveaway

Birthday Giveaway

Thanks to Honest and Brutal Edits a fully edited and revised edition of Ivory Guard is now available on Amazon. 

To celebrate Step One of my big editing project and birthday, I am giving away 5 ebook copies of Ivory Guard (The Guard Duet #1)It feels like a totally new book to me, and I want to share that with you. 

As an aspiring indie author it's not always easy. We know that our works need editing, but as often in life it comes down to money.
And at the time I didn't have enough of it to afford an editor. publish or not to publish?

I decided to publish, hoping that the proceeds would be enough to allow for a good editor. Unfortunately, there are a lot of editors out there and it was bad luck that I happened to stumble upon the wrong one at first. But then I found Honest and Brutal Edits. H and B actually listened to me when I told them that English was not my native tongue, and that I needed them to have a closer look - especially at syntax and grammar. 
So, if you need an affordable, honest and brutal editor...well, then I have an idea who you should go to - just saying.

But back to the matter at hand...the giveaway.

Ivory Guard  (The Guard Duet #1)
New Adult Paranormal Romance
Originally published February 2014

Life will make you stumble... 

One peaceful afternoon Lillian finds two angels in her living room - wings and gloriole and all - telling her she is an Ivory. Half human and half angel, she is born to fight for humankind and guard the hellholes where the membrane between worlds is at its weakest. 
She, an important warrior? Yeah, riiiight. 

Life can make you fall... 

Raz might be an angel, but he doesn’t do compassion. His job is to train and make her a leader. So Lillian will just have to suck it up when she discovers the deadly truth behind his words. When she does exactly that, he has to admit there’s more to the bookworm than he thought. Much more. But there’s one thing he shouldn’t forget – in his world feelings come with a price. Is he willing to pay? 

Love will give you wings. 

The giveaway...right...
Here we go.
Thank you and good luck to all participants!

Rhino Poaching...

Maybe you have heard about rhino poaching...but how many people really understand what it signifies?
A rhino's horn gets hacked off...okay. So what?
Well, the problem is that poachers are not the gentlest of beings...not only the horn but most of the rhino's face is brutally removed in the process. That is the sad but utterly real ‪‎truth‬.

Some people need numbers to get an idea of the here they are:
The Javan rhino is taking its last stand - as few as 40 remain in Ujung Kulon National Park in Indonesia.
As of December 2014 there are only 5 nothern white rhinos left on Earth - extinction is inevitable.
The Western black rhino is a species of African rhino that was last seen in 2006, and is now officially extinct

"Poaching, limited anti-poaching efforts and a failure of courts to hand down severe sentences to punish poachers are all blamed for the Western Black rhino's demise."
- Daily Mail 

This wildlife war may take place far away from your own home, BUT it concerns us all. It's OUR world we are talking about after all, and we are responsible for the magnificent creatures we share it with.

So: Help! 
Help save our rhinos!




If you would like to find out how you can help, visit Mario Saincic's blog. He fights rhino poaching with his books, and has a list of organisations that will be happy to receive some support.
