Heather McCorkle does it again!!!

Today we're celebrating the release of +Heather McCorkle's fantasy novel, The Dragon Empire! For today's stop Heather is answering the following question:

Is this novel the beginning of a new series? And what can we expect next from you?

Heather: In the traditional sense that most people think of, no. But in a way it is. There are several more novels coming that are set in this world and involve these characters. The next novel will be about Torin, one of the people that Grendar meets in The Dragon Empire and it will be a New Adult fantasy novel.

Here is a bit about it:

On Yacrana dragons are the advanced species. But advanced doesn't always mean civilized...

There's trouble in the Dragon Empire, the kind that could start a war between dragons and the races of people. Hidden factions of dragons believe they should rule the lesser races, not simply stand aside and allow them to develop as they will. Having lived so long in peace, the Emperors turn a blind eye, many oblivious that such attitudes even exist.

Despite being only an architect class, emerald dragon, Grendar is willing to risk banishment and death to stop that which his rulers refuse to see. The hope of peace lies not within the scaled breast of a dragon however, but within the hands of a group of people. But if the hidden factions have their way, these people won’t live to fulfill such a destiny. With a reluctant seer at his side, Grendar must leave his precious Empire for the outside world to save those that will one day save his kind.

While The Dragon Empire is for ages young adult and up, it does contain mild violence and some difficult subject matter.

Avocado Tree

OK, so back on December 9, 2012 I decided to try my hand at growing an Avocado tree. Now most of you know (or maybe you don't) I live in the state of Missouri where the weather can change ever 5 minutes literally! Last Monday we went from 65 degrees and sleeping with the windows open to a rainy Tuesday that turned into snow and temperatures that were below freezing. Anyway, I LOVE avocados, and so does my family. So when I was on Pinterest one day I saw that someone had posted on how to grow and avocado tree from the pit that came out of the fruit. And that is what I did. I started with the pit and followed the directions (ok, so I fudged a little bit and put the toothpicks in the wrong spot, but then I fixed them). It has been about a couple of weeks since I spotted the root. I am so excited, my pit has sprouted a root!!! I still have a long ways to go, but the root is the first step!!! There is my little root!! I am going to start another one just to be on the safe side, and maybe I can get two trees!!! I told you I love avocados!!! I guess next, my daughter wants me to try to grow a lemon and orange tree... I am going to have to look to see if Missouri is a good state to grow them in, or if I am going to have to turn my lady cave into an indoor green house!!
