Something Special: Sherilyn Putnam’s “The Dragon Child”

Today I am going to step away from my usual anime diet to share something really special with you guys. I’m incredibly fortunate to get to do this, too. As I’ve mentioned a couple times in the past, I’m an author, and one of the things I really believe in as an author is supporting other authors. Be it book reviews, which will become more common here in the future, or sharing news like what I have today.

Good friend of mine, and incredibly talented author, Sherilyn Putnam, has a new book coming out soon, and you get to see the cover.

DragonChildcoverNow, I know what you’re thinking. Is Cain really sharing a book for young readers? Shocking as it is, yes I am. The world is a strange and wondrous place, after all.

Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

When a gypsy boy stumbles over an egg near the ocean he doesn’t know just how much it will change his life. Once the egg hatches, the boy’s world will never be the same, nor will it be for the creature that comes out of the egg. Named Dane after the boy’s father, the creature will begin a journey to find his own family. Along the way, he’ll learn that family is sometimes who you choose, not who you are born to.

Sherilyn Putnam is the pen name of an author who decided holding in the stories for younger people just wasn’t an option. Thus a whole new persona emerged, ready to share her love of fantastical beings and adventurous characters with the young readers of the world. Sherilyn is almost exactly like the ‘other’ author, being she lives in the deep south, has two daughters, a hero husband and lives in a tiny house ruled by two insane cats and a miniature dachshund with a Napoleon complex.

Her books for young readers almost always have the same message, one she feels very strongly about, “be who you are, not who others think you should be.”

If you want to learn more about Sherilyn, you can find her on Facebook, Twitter, or visit her Blog, which I guested at recently, talking anime, naturally.

Seriously, be sure to pick this up, whether you have kids or not, and be looking for a proper review of it here once it is released.

Even Natsu can’t wait for this book!
