International Authors' Day 2015 Blog Hop + BOOK GIVEAWAY

What books and authors mean to me
I started this blog due to my love of books wanting to give back to the authors to some degree for what they have given to me. I do not have a favorite author nor do I have a favorite book. I know this sounds strange to many people. I started reading before most children did. As an extremely shy child books were my friends, they were always there for me and helped me escape my fears. Books are a part of what I embody, it does not matter if I loved them or hated them, they have made me the person I am today. Now, as an adult I am disabled being stuck in a broken body is not an easy feat yet, with the help of books I am able to leave the pain behind at times going to places and doing things that have been wondrous. I inhere the essence that authors dream up helping make my world a phenomenal place. I thank all the authors which have made my life so grand taking me on stunning adventures allowing me to see the world through others eyes.

I am not a writer only a reader I believe what this says about books is better than I ever could:

Lord Alfred Fitzwilliam spends each day in much the same way: caring for his terminally ill wife and trying to lose himself in the dusty tomes that fill his library. Everything changes when he receives a visit from a man representing a clandestine organization operating with the backing of Queen Victoria herself. The group seeks his aid in finding an Arthurian artifact that, legend holds, can cure its bearer of any wound or disease.

Skeptical but desperate to help his wife, Alfred is convinced that the fabled item might actually exist after witnessing a seemingly impossible display of power by the organization's leader, James Nigel. He decides to pursue the treasure, accompanied by an eccentric scholar, a deadly druid, and his best friend, a sardonic bookseller who is far more than he seems. As he follows an arcane trail of clues from the gas-lit streets of London to the wilds of Scotland and deep into ancient catacombs in Italy, Alfred becomes enmeshed in a web of hidden agendas, secret societies, and ancient enchantments. Along the way, he learns a dark secret about Nigel’s past—and the true power of the artifact he seeks.
Steeped in a compelling mythology and filled with unexpected twists, The Camelot Shadow will leave readers stunned, breathless, and wrestling with an impossible question: what do you do with an object that has the power to both save the world and destroy it?
