Free book (nook) - Blue [YA Fantasy]

Blue, a YA fantasy by Lou Aronica, is free courtesy of publisher The Fiction Studio, which Lou Aronica also happens to own.

Before you dismiss this as an amateur self-pub effort, Aronica formerly edited the Bantam Spectra and Avon Eos sf/fantasy imprints at what are now Random House and Harper Collins respectively.

So this is more like a professional self-pub effort. Mind you, editing ability does not always correlate to writing talent, though Kristine Kathryn Rusch seems to do pretty well at both.

Anyway, free @ B&N for anyone who's interested. Thanks to the B&N discussion boards posters who spotted it.

Synopsis
Chris Astor is a man in his early forties who is going through the toughest stretch of his life. Becky is Chris's fourteen-year-old daughter, a girl who overcame enormous challenges to become a vibrant, vital young woman - and now faces her greatest obstacle yet.

Miea is the young queen of a fantasy land that Becky and Chris created when Becky was little, a fantasy land that has developed a life of its own and now finds itself in terrible, maybe fatal trouble. Together, Chris, Becky, and Miea need to uncover a secret. The secret to why their worlds have joined at this moment. The secret to their purpose. The secret to the future.

It is a secret that, when discovered, will redefine imagination for all of them. Blue is a novel of trial and hope, invention and rediscovery. It might very well take you someplace you never knew existed.
