Ashael Rising will be celebrating its 1st book birthday on 6th February and to celebrate we are having a massive one day blitz. No limits to number of participants, so if you want to join in the fun please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, blog name, and preferred post type.
As part of the Book Birthday Blitz, we are hoping to cause a big buzz on social media. In order to help with that, regardless of if you can take part in the blitz, if you could lend your support to this Daycause campaign, with Facebook/Twitter it would be most appreciated. This allows an automated message to go out at midday of 6th February and if we gain enough support, could lead to the book trending.

Ashael is a hunter-gatherer woman, apprenticed to Bhearra, the healer and spiritual leader of their tribe.
The Zanthar are invaders from another world who extend their own lives by stealing the life-force of everything around them. They were last seen on KalaDene 200 years ago. They have returned, looking for The Vessel, a being prophesied to hold the life-force of the land.
Iwan is a slave to the Zanthar, descendant of those taken as slaves the last time the Zanthar visited this world. He is sent out as a spy, while his mother is held hostage to ensure his compliance.
When Ashael meets Iwan in the forest, neither realise that she is the one the Zanthar are looking for. The fate of KalaDene and all of its people rests on her shoulders.
