New Release Spotlight: H.L. Burke's Middle Grade Fantasy Adventure "Cora and the Nurse Dragon"

I'm kicking off 2016's New Release Spotlights with a new title from fellow Clean Indie Reads author H.L. Burke. She is the author of a four part fantasy/romance series entitled "The Scholar and the Dragon" featuring the books Dragon's Curse, Dragon's Debt, Dragon's Rival, and Dragon's Bride as well as the YA/Fantasy Beggar Magic. Here’s her latest release, Cora and the Nurse Dragon.

Cora and the Nurse Dragon is a new middle grade fantasy adventure that follows the adventures of Cora Harrison in a world where dragons no longer live in nature but are a resource exploited by humans. Recommended for ages 9 and up. The book released January 31st and is available at the special price of 99 cents. 

The story:
Cora's a young girl with two dreams: to be a dragon jockey when she grows up and to own a pet dragon now. She constantly buys "egg packs" at the dragon emporium in hopes that one will hatch into a rare pet-sized dragon, but only gets short-lived mayflies. However, when an unexpected egg does develop into something new, Cora may be in over her head.

About the Author:

Born in a small town in north central  Oregon, H. L. Burke spent most of her childhood around trees and farm animals and was always accompanied by a book. Growing up with epic heroes from Middle Earth and Narnia keeping her company, she also became an incurable romantic. An addictive personality, she jumped from one fandom to another, being at times completely obsessed with various books, movies, or television series (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Star Trek all took their turns), but she has grown to be what she considers a well-rounded connoisseur of geek culture. Married to her high school crush who is now a US Marine, she has moved multiple times in her adult life but believes that home is wherever her husband, two daughters, and pets are. Her current projects are a young adult steampunk fantasy and an epic fantasy trilogy.
