NBTM: The Wonders of the Peculiar Parasol by Mark M. Even

Congratulations to tour winner Christina G. and to host winner Andi's Middle Grade and Chapter Books. 
Thank you for your interest in hosting this tour, but all stops have been filled.

Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a Virtual Name Before the Masses Tour for The Wonders of the Peculiar Parasol by Mark M. Even, a Young Adult book available now from Cresting Wave Publishing. The tour will run every Monday for 8 weeks starting on August 10, and Mark M. Even is available for guest post and interviews. A PDF copy of the book is available for review in conjunction with a guest post or interview.

Mark M. Even will be awarding a $20 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour, and a $20 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn host.

The Wonders of the Peculiar Parasol is an outstanding fantasy that shows how Mandy discovers her magic under strange circumstances. It focuses on how Mandy will get home and how she'll discover her real purpose in coming to this land, providing the basics of how this new world operates in a manner that elementary-level readers can readily understand: "The parasol and the dragonstone work together to sense the presence, or lack of presence, of the inner magic of the person holding the parasol. The dragonstone uses the infinite power of the sun to tap or channel or access that magic. And one way it does that is to transport an individual to Storyworld.”

As Mandy harbors a secret, puzzles out how to use the dragonstone, and interacts with her family while battling lizards and building an army, young readers will relish the blend of real-world family dilemmas and fantasy world encounters.
