Ciara Houghton | 14 comments Hi all!

In order to promote the audiobook release of The Captain's Door, I've been granted some Audible.com review copies, and I'm handing them out. You don't need to be a member to download.

If you think you might be interested in an adventurous coming of age story about a very long-lived girl set in an alternate 19th century, send me a message or post here. I should probably note that although the protagonist appears young, this is not young-adult fiction and will probably be better appreciated by adult readers of both fantasy and literary fiction. When I run out of copies I'll leave a post here in this forum.

Thanks!

And, here's the blurb:
At the helm of a tall ship stands Mina Paradis. She may look young, but Mina's spent a lifetime serving her family and country. Now she's tired, so tired, of following orders and watching her friends grow old and die while she never ages a day.

Desperate to escape the slow suffocation of a circumscribed life, Mina prepares to break the terms of her indenture. Such treason threatens to propel her through an intensely personal struggle to save herself, spare her crew, and face an adolescence long-delayed.

The Captain's Door opens the Mina Paradis series with a unique exploration of obligation and independence set in an alternative 19th century. Fans of character-driven fantasy, like that of Ursula K. Le Guin, will appreciate the slower pace and literary build.

Ciara Houghton | 14 comments Hi Jeff,

I was going to send you a Goodreads message to pass along a redemption code, but I don't think it'll let me because your profile is set to private (message option isn't available on my end). Maybe if you send me a message first, it will let me reply to that message? I'm not certain.

I'm sure we'll figure it out. :)

Ciara Houghton | 14 comments Thanks for the message Jeff! I sent along the code.

Anyone else? Still more to go. This is fun. :)
