BLURB:

MEDIA KIT oceanofdustaudiobook_withlogoFourteen-year old Lissa is snatched from her home and finds herself a slave on a trading ship traveling on a waterless ocean of nothing but gray dust. A feisty, curious and intelligent girl, her desire to explore the ship earns her the hatred of the cruel first officer, Farq.

Fascinated by the ocean of dust, Lissa becomes embroiled in its mysteries, sensing things that the crew cannot, while cryptic whispers in her head are leading her toward a destiny linked to the dust itself. Only one man aboard can help her make sense of her new talent, but can she trust him? All is not as it seems, and she must unravel the clues before it’s too late.

When a sinister plot casts her adrift on the barren ocean, her best friend is left in the hands of the treacherous crew. Everything hinges upon her courage, quick wits, and her ability to master her new talent.

EXCERPT:

They stumbled into an office, and she was surprised to find it decorated with bookshelves stuffed full of trinkets, and glass cases inside which stuffed birds had been arranged. Then her gaze fell on the man behind the cluttered desk and she stumbled, bringing both hands over her mouth to mute her squeal. Her arms and legs trembled.

Hands clasped behind his back, ponytail hanging neatly from his head, stood the gaunt man from the dock.

He scowled at each of them in turn. His sharp, calculating gaze lingered longest on Lissa and she felt her cheeks burning. She dropped her hands and stared at the floor, feeling sick to her stomach.

“Names?” he said.

“Pete, sir.”

“Lissa.” She kept her gaze on a crack in the deck that ran diagonally across one of the narrow boards.

“You, boy?” the man snapped.

“Lyndon. My father-“

“Shut up.”

“If I may finish?” Lyndon continued, his voice shaking.

Lissa stared hard at the crack, willing it to swallow her up. She tried to shuffle behind Pete.

“No,” the man replied. “No, you may not. One more word and I’ll have you whipped until you are begging. I’m going to explain this only once, so pay attention. I am Deck Master Farq. You belong to me now. Whether you live or die, eat or starve, is up to me. Forget your homes. You’ll never see them again.

    Personally, I find it hard to read a book that is set in a world other than the one in which we live. I’m more of a visual person. That said, I think I would enjoy the audio version of your book instead of the print. Hearing the words bring them to life in my mind.

    Thanks for sharing your excerpt today.
