Keir - Official Release Day!

So it's finally here! My first ever full-length novel officially releases today with Lyrical Press Inc. Squeeee! To say I'm excited would be an understatement of EPIC proportions. Somebody pinch me!

If you've missed the virtual book tour so far (and where have you been?!), Keir is a science-fiction romance set across various alien worlds with a tortured hero, a time-traveling heroine on a mission and dark forces at large in the galaxy. Not enough information? Then here's the blurb. :-)

Outcast. Cursed. Dying. Is Keir beyond redemption?

For Keirlan de Corizi--the legendary 'Blue Demon' of Adalucien--death seems the only escape from a world where his discolored skin marks him as an oddity and condemns him to life as a pariah. But salvation comes in an unexpected guise: Tarquin Secker, a young woman who can travel the stars with a wave of her hand. 

But Quin has secrets of her own. She's spent eternity searching through space and time with a strange band of companions at her back. Defying her friends' counsel, Quin risks her apparent immortality to save Keir. She offers him sanctuary and a new life on her home world, Lyagnius. 

When Keir mistakenly unleashes his dormant alien powers and earns instant exile from Quin's home world, will she risk everything to stand by him again?

For the first week all new titles are 30% off at Lyrical Press Inc so go and grab a copy! It's also available at Amazon. If you've been following the tour, hopefully you've commented to win a free copy - if not, all the blogs on the tour are listed below. And as a special prize for release day, I'm offering a swag bag to one random commentator on here, which I will ship to anywhere in the world. This will remain open until the tour ends on the 14th May at midnight (and that's BST - British Summer Time - so earlier than in the US!)

The swag will include a special charm bracelet made up by yours truly with KEIR on it, two bookmarks, a temporary tattoo similar to one described in the book, a blue scarf (because blue is the only color) and an Amazon Gift Card worth $20 (or UK/AUS/EUR equivalent at the time of the draw). Worth a comment? :-)
