Sponsor Love, a Review, & a Giveaway!

How's that for a bunch of fun-filled goodness all in one post?!

Victoria Simcox has done it again with her 2nd novel, The Black Shard, in her Magic Warble series! I honestly didn't think she would be able to top her first book, The Magic Warble, but she did, in all it's enchanting glory!

Let me tell you a little about this amazing author.

Victoria was born in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, to an Austrian immigrant mother, and a Dutch immigrant father. She now lives in Western Washington with her husband, Russ and their three children, Toby, Kristina, and William. Her other family members are a Chihuahua, named Pipsy and two cats, named Frodo and Fritz. Besides being an author, Victoria is a home-schooling mother of twelve years and an elementary school art teacher of eleven years. In her spare time, Victoria enjoys managing her two older children's Celtic band. She also loves writing, reading, painting watercolors, hiking, good movies, and just simply hanging out with her family and friends.

The Black Shard continues with the journey of Kristina & Werrien in the magical land of Bernovem. Victoria's novels are aimed for middle school age kids, but I've got to tell you, I couldn't put it down! It keeps you intrigued from the very first chapter to the last. I can't wait for her next book!

If you have children or grandchildren, what a perfect gift for them! If not, do yourself a favor and pick up this book to have an enchanting afternoon!

Victoria is so generous to offer to one lucky A Creative Princess readers a hard copy of The Black Shard. This hard copy is for US residents only.

I'm a huge fan of children's literature. I have quite a collection of books. I'd love to add this one. Can't wait to get to reading the first one!

Knowing that you couldn't put it down is a pretty good recommendation! I'd love to read it, and then give it to the grandkids. :-) (no one will tell, will they??)
