The Dragon in the Garden, by Erika Gardner

I am deep in the middle of working on a new novel - it has consumed every moment of my writing time and it is so easy to get lost in my own world, my own struggles, and miss the many great moments that others are happening around me. When someone I know has success, whether big or small, whether a close friend or a name that blurred by on my feed, it makes me a little happier. Happy for them and happy to know that one day my own moment will come. A sorrow shared is a sorrow halved; a joy shared is a joy doubled.

I'm happy to share the joy of  my friend Erika's new book. I met her a few years ago at the San Francisco Writer's conference and in spite of my best efforts to be a writing recluse, she's always kept in touch with not only me but the community formed at that event and beyond. She's one those people who doesn't get so lost in her own world that she forgets to look after her friends :)

Erika is a great writer - I've had the chance to read some of her previous work and can't wait to get my hands on this novel. You never quite know exactly where she's going to go but it's always a little further than you expect and lots of fun getting there. You can learn more about Erika on her blog.

The Dragon in the Garden

There is magic beneath the mundane and in The Dragon in the Garden, Siobhan Orsini witnesses it all. No lie can fool her, no glamour or illusion can cloud her Sight. She sees through them all and wishes she could close her eyes. Returning to face her past, Siobhan inherits her grandparents’ house in California’s wine country. She encounters a talking dragon, a hot fallen angel, a demon lord, a Valkyrie, and, oh yes, her ex-boyfriend. And that is just in the first twenty-four hours.
