Sidney, NY (PRWEB) January 19, 2005
Skye Dakota is not your typical woman business owner.
She is a crook with a conscience. A knife-wielding fighter who dislikes violence. A loving woman who avoids loving. A secretive boss who is determined to be open with her people.
And, when a crisis strikes her carefully constructed life, she finds she can only move forward by going back.
Skye Daokta is the heroine of The Dragon's Lair (ISBN 0-9713278-2-3), a powerful debut novel by Lisa Guilfoil. The science-fiction adventure was the winning entry in the 2003 Brighid's Fire Books/LughnassadhBooks.com Fiction Manuscript Contest, and will be released by Brighid's Fire Books in March 2005.
"The Dragon's Lair is a compelling portrait of a complex, fascinating character," says editor Dawn Rivers Baker. "Through Skye, you step inside the skin of a woman who escaped a terrible, violently abusive situation and painstakingly built a life for herself, only to be dragged back by unfinished businesses. There are so many issues there -- violence against women, post-traumatic stress syndrome, independence and interdependence -- we're calling it science fiction, but it's a story that truly transcends genre."
The Dragon's Lair will be released on March 1, 2005; pre-orders from booksellers will be accepted by Brighid's Fire Books as of January 1, 2005. Trade paperback (perfect bound) release, POD, 424 pages with no illustrations, cover price $19.95, wholesale price $12.97. Beginning in March, The Dragon's Lair will also be available from Ingram and, online, from BookSurge.
