Blurb Blitz: The Blue Dragon by Yiola Damianou-Papadopoulou

Congratulations to Christy B., winner of the tour prize

Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a Virtual Blurb Blitz Tour for The Blue Dragon by Yiola Damianou-Papadopoulou, a YA Children’s middle reader available now from Wattle Publishing. The tour will run September 14, 2015 to October 9, 2015, and this tour will not include interviews or guest blogs; however, a blurb, excerpt and author bio will be provided to every host for inclusion on their blog. A PDF copy of the book is available for review.

Yiola will be awarding a $10 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

The Blue Dragon describes the terror of the catastrophic tsunami that hit Sri Lanka in December 2004. The novel focuses on a group of children—Hanseni, and her siblings Awade and Manori, and their friend Nishian—their individual experiences, and how they managed to pull through this horrendous event. Overcoming their fears the children struggle against the forces of nature, fighting against the odds to save themselves and their friends. Their stories portray courage and hope, and demonstrate the inner strength and determination that exists in the human spirit when faced with an unforgiving natural disaster. This emotive and heartfelt story shows how even, in the most terrifying of circumstances, the will to live triumphs.
