Favorite Book
The WATERSPELL Fantasy Trilogy
About Me:
I began as a journalist, or at least that's what I got my degree in. After college, I worked for a newspaper, then as a magazine editor and feature writer. These days I earn my living as a freelance editor for a national nonprofit organization. I've written three award-winning books of history and biography. I'm a member of The Authors Guild. My newest work is a fantasy, WATERSPELL, an intricate, multi-layered trilogy about a girl and the wizard who suspects her of being so dangerous to his world, he believes he'll eventually have to kill her ... which poses a problem for him, since he's fallen in love with her.

WATERSPELL: A Fantasy Trilogy
by Deborah J. Lightfoot

"A teenage girl runs away from her life of servitude only to be captured by a sorcerer who will help her discover her true past. … Carin and Verek’s well-crafted relationship balances in a tense power struggle … intriguing premise and original characters … Fine fantasy."
—KIRKUS Reviews

Critical Praise for the WATERSPELL Trilogy:

"Grabbed my attention and kept it. It’s a truly unique book. This is a series not to miss."
Tahlia Newland

"This is one of the best books I've ever read. It's hard to set down. Everything about it is gorgeous. Every word is a work of art!"
Amazon Review

"A delightful read … tight writing, fast-moving narrative and intriguing characters."
Goodreads Review

"Waterspell is a really good book. It flows so smoothly that once I started reading, I didn't want to stop. … Carin is never portrayed as a victim even when she is bruised, poisoned, punched, imprisoned and terrified. Instead she is a resilient survivor throughout the entire book."
Goodreads Review

"I don't see how this could avoid being a hit—I couldn't put it down. Good, complex story; well crafted, well written."
S. Caldwell

"Not a word wasted or out of place. Strong, compelling, intriguing, taut."
—SouthWest Writers, Science Fiction/Fantasy Novel

Hello Deborah,
Welcome to Book Blogs, I have forged many friendships here with avid readers and prolific writers. We help each other out and have a great time while we do so. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Archway to Acknowledgement is a group that can increase your following on twitter if you are interested in that. I have joined many groups that fit the topics I write about and that can help me market my debut novel and prepare me for the one I will release next spring.

Catalina
