Welcome to the New Author Blog Hop! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
My first book, Daughter of Helaman, is based on the Book of Mormon story of the stripling warriors. The story is about a girl who wants to join the army and spends all her spare time training for it. She even convinces one of the more attractive young warriors to train her. Below, you will find a book blurb and a short excerpt. When you're done reading, link back over to Word Diaries for more great giveaways.
OH Yeah! The giveaway. I almost forgot.
Today you can enter to win two pieces of Daughter of Helaman inspired selections of jewelry from Paparrazi. And I suppose I could throw in a signed copy of the book. All you need to do is become a blog follower (on the sidebar) and leave your email address in the comments. Good luck to all!
From back cover:
She should be thinking of housework and being a wife. Instead Keturah is thinking of swords and being a warrior. Ignoring the worries of her family and her nearly betrothed, Keturah begins secretly training with one of the new soldiers to prove herself worthy of Helaman's army. But when the two men meet up, sparks fly, and Keturah must figure out not only her place in society, but also her heart's desire.
Misty Moncur skillfuly transports readers to Nephite times, where Lamanites roam the forest and fighting for your family and freedom is the dream of every boy--and one girl. You'll cheer as the sassy Keturah proves herself, both on and off the battlefield, as a girl with a warrior's heart.
I took my sword from his hand and turned to walk away. I was proud of myself. I was really getting the hang of controlling my temper and biting my tongue.
"Keturah," he said and reached out for me possessively. He grabbed for my arm, and I had him pinned to the ground by the count of four.
