Jackie Gamber - Redheart

Some exiting news from the folks of Seventh Start.

Jackie Gamber's Redheart Cover Art and Illustrations Revealed

Seventh Star Press is proud to unveil the cover art and illustrations to
Redheart, Book One of the Leland Dragon Series, from Mary Shelley Award
winning author Jackie Gamber.

The first installment of the exciting new YA fantasy series is slated for
release on April 19th. The cover art and illustrations were created by
Matthew Perry, whose artwork appears on the covers and interiors of other
Seventh Star Press authors such as Steven Shrewsbury and Stephen Zimmer.

A pre-ordering window is now open for readers interested in a limited
edition hardcover of Redheart, which features an illustration created
especially for that version. There is also a pre-order offer for the
regular trade paperback edition. Both of the pre-order offers include
packages of bonus materials, ranging from 14X20 posters of one of the
illustrations, to a set of four 5X7 glossy prints.

Redheart invites readers into the lands of Leland Province, where dragon
and human societies have long dwelled side by side. Superstitions rise
sharply, as a severe drought strips the land of its bounty, providing
fertile ground for the darker ambitions of Fordon Blackclaw, Dragon
Council Leader, who seeks to subdue humans or wipe them off the face of
the land.

As the shadow of danger creeps across Leland Province, a young dragon
named Kallon Redheart, who has turned his back on dragons and humans
alike, comes into an unexpected friendship. Riza Diantus is a young woman
whose dreams can no longer be contained by the narrow confines of her
village, and when she finds herself in peril, Kallon is the only one with
the power to save her. Yet to do so means he must confront his past, and
embrace a future he stopped believing in.

A tale of friendship, courage, and ultimate destiny, Redheart invites
readers to a wondrous journey through the Leland Dragon Series.

Redheart will ultimately be available in trade paperback, hardcover, and a
variety of eBook editions.

Sela, Book Two of the series, is targeted for a third quarter release in
2011, with Book Three scheduled for mid-2012 release in all of the
aforementioned formats.
