WPFP Blog Tour - The Big Launch!

Well, well, well. Today is a big, big day!

Why, you may ask? Well, only because my best book yet is being released!

After years of scratching at notebooks and tapping at keyboards, bouts of exhilaration and near-tears, and writer's block lasting up to a year at times.

Six computers. At least five notebooks. Five drafts, but only two that were completed.

Seven months of intense editing, several times when I honestly considered throwing the whole thing in the trash. Thirteen beta readers who kept me from doing just that.

And now, after so many years, so much time and effort, I am releasing Water Princess, Fire Prince into the hands of the public to read, and enjoy, and rip to shreds as they will.

You can click the above image to go through and buy the kindle copy. The Paperback edition is available HERE. For this week only, it's just $14.99, so get it now. The price will be going up to, I think, $17.99 after I announce the giveaway winners, so I can opt the book into the expanded distribution channels.

Once you've read the book and fallen love, be sure to leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads, and then join the goodreads fangroup!

Also: FREE BOOKS!!! (What's one of my parties without free books involved, may I ask?)
Currently, all three volumes of the Bookania Quests are free on Kindle, but My Kingdom for a Quest is free TODAY only, so get it now!

Do You Take This Quest?

My Kingdom for a Quest:

As for the stops I'll be making today, you can check out:

Overactive Imagination - Jakob
Flights from the Aerie - Me
ElvishPens, Fantastical Writings - Me
ScatteredJournal Pages
A Heart Redeemed

Also, Giveaways! I have two. The first is a rafflecopter giveaway with the prize being a signed physical copy of Water Princess, Fire Prince and a bottle of Citrus Bliss, which is a essential oil blend of about seven citruses and vanilla extract - and as readers of Water Princess, Fire Prince know, that's the smell of warm bathwater in Rizkaland.

The other prize is for the person who leaves the MOST comments during this tour, be they here on my blog, on my posts for the tour - including the countdown posts I was doing last week - or on the interviews and reviews and such on other blogs. (And yes, you can comment multiple times on the same post, but there must be someone else commenting between your comments, or you must be replying. And constructive comments, please. Don't be commenting just to be commenting, or I won't count it.) I'm not entirely certain what this giveaway's prize will be, but I'm kinda leaning towards a chance to Alpha read book two. If so, if there's a tie, then I'll award the prize to both people who tie. 

Oh, and one last thing: I turned comment moderation off last night and capcha on. Have fun with it!


  1. Huzzah! It's officially out!
    The thing I'm most excited about the release? Probably the fact that I can now let my sister read it. :D (I was holding off until the book officially came out.)

    1. I hope she enjoys it!

      ((And I completely forgot to turn off moderation/on captcha last night. It's done now, though.))

    2. She's either finished or mostly finished at this point; she was in the middle of part 4 at lunchtime. From what I can tell, she's definitely enjoying it. :D

  2. It's here! Now the world can fall in love with WPFP! And I must get my copy. Because my sisters must read it now as well.

  3. Exciting! Congratulations! I'm excited for the world to meet this book.

    *standing in a line with the other Betas and cheering*

    And - Citrus Bliss? That sounds amazing!

    1. Citrus Bliss is awesome, and smells glorious. I have the bottle next to me on my desk, and even though it's sealed and in bubble wrap, I can still smell it if I sniff the cap. I wish I could keep it for myself ...

    2. Also, the description under "Pinterest" on the giveaway says, "Pin to Goodreads." Shouldn't that be "Pin to Pinterest"? :)

    3. It ... does? Ahhhhhhhhh! And Rafflecopter won't let me change it.

    Also, I'm most exciting about reading the book. That's it. xD

  5. HurrahHurrahHurrah! At long last, WP,FP is available to your eager, adoring fans! *BoingBoingBoing!* *HappyPixieDance*
    (The Pixie's two-cents, obviously :-P)

    Congratulations on finishing Book One of your pet project, m'dear! And virtual hearty handshakes to all your Betas who kept you from trashing it (!!!) during difficult spots. We're so proud of you, and as I've said before, I'm really looking forward to visiting this world!

    ~"Tom Wild Rose"~

  6. Congratulations! Yay! *blows off confetti cannon* Woohoo!

    1. (P.S. I'm excited to hold a physical copy in my hand!)

  7. What am I most excited for this book?
    besides the fact that two ordinary people from earth are transported to a unknown world. Is that they find out the have power over water and fire! I have always been dawn to elemental powers and the fact that it is written by a Christian makes it even better! can't wait to read this!! oh and congratulations on finishing it!

  8. I am so incredibly excited! EEEEEEKKKKK!

    Most comments, eh, Kendra? *gives an impish smile*

    So, what am I most excited about with WPFP? Everything. The dialogue. The romance. The epilogue. The fact that I can now tell all my friends to buy it. JUST EVERYTHING.

    Citrus bliss! Delicious! Alpha reading, how lovely. Lucky person, whoever that ends up being.

  9. I think I'm most excited to actually read about this world of yours, which you've blogged about and given us glimpses of via Blog Parties and Pinterest. It sounds fascinating (especially the fact that it's a cylinder--way to think outside the box)!

    ...and the fact that one of the protagonists is a redhead. *Halo*

    1. That was funny... "Think outside the box; think up a cylinder!"

  10. Congradulations, Kendra! Water Princess, Fire Prince has become one of my favorite books and I am happy that the whole world can finally read it!

  11. Congratulations Kendra! I love the book and can't wait until I can do my review!! I hope to buy the paperback book when my mom get's home!

    I'm excited because Rizkaland is such a cool world and Laura is so ammazing.

  14. No, I am ot commenting to get credit, I am commenting to ask a question.


    Do comments (in response to others' comments) on our own blogs count?

    1. Yes, they do. You're keeping the conversation going, after all. I may as well reward it.
