The Blind Lily: A Gifted Series Companion
by AshleyNicole Shelton
#Free  Download

The Blind Lily is a prequel to Book One of The Gifted Series 

About:
Lily East is different from other people and has been since her birth. The government has been trying to recruit her, wanting to use her uncontrollable gift to their advantage. After years of evading, Lily finally gives into her "civic duty" and helps the government solve cases gone cold. Her life outside of being a special agent is far from normal. And as if that isn't enough, she finds herself falling in love with the man who almost killed her. This is life, as she sees it. 
Coming soon, in Book One of The Gifted Series, you will learn the whole story, and how Lily's powers came to be. I hope you'll enjoy this novella until then.

Hello, my name is AshleyNicole.  I write science fiction, paranormal and epic fantasy in YA and NA age groups.  The Blind Lily is my free companion story for my upcoming Gifted Series.  My current work in process is Women's Island, a dystopian science fiction novel, currently in the beta reading stage.  You can get the latest updates of my work on my blog ashleynicolebooks.wordpress.com .  Thank you for inviting me to the community.  I look forward to reading about your work.

Help my project become a success by spreading the word, or even contributing to win pledge rewards!

Have you ever watched the movie, The Cove? It's about the massacre of dolphins in Japan. At the end of the movie you can sign a petition to help save the dolphins and get texts from Save the Dolphins. I signed a while ago and I just got some great news: "COVE UPDATE: Freedom for 2 dolphins found in deadly swim-with program, now safely rehabilitated and released into wild! http://bit.ly/JwCcfg"

That's two dolphins saved! How many more until the massacre stops in Japan?

The Blind Lily Part One eBook release is this Easter, April 8th 2012! You can download your copy for FREE at Smashwords.com and check out the event on Facebook! Thank you for supporting my writing! You're all awesome!
