Familiar Origins Description:

Eight children, powerful enough to annihilate the vulnerable world in which they live, are wanted by a small but elite group of dragons. Some dragons are good, some are not, but they all have the same goal: To find these children, bond them, and use them as pawns in their ever-enduring conflict.

Honest Review Option

(Back to top)

This option is a larger commitment, but if you are planning to read the books anyway, honest review posts are typically large traffic drivers. The other benefit to the review option is that reviews can be cross-posted to Amazon which gives you more entries into the Kindle Fire drawing pool. If you choose this option, you’ll receive an ecopy of the book for the Kindle and Nook platforms so you can read the ebook online or on a ereader, iPad, or smart phone.

Review Copies of the Book

You can also contact heroineswithheart@gmail.com to request a digital copy for the ereader of your choice.

Review Prompts:

Just in case you aren’t sure what to say in your review, you can just finish these sentences to get started:

  • One of the things I liked/didn’t like about the book was…
  • I liked /didn’t like ________ because he/she was…
  • Familiar Origins is good for anyone who…

Short Email Interview Option

(Back to top)

This option will take about 15 minutes of your time. Easy peasy!

To create the interview post all B. Pine needs is 5-7 questions that you’d like her to answer. You can ask her anything you want about the book or not about the book, doesn’t matter! She is happy to answer all questions. If you are stuck for questions, here are some topics she loves to talk about:

  • Writing (her work, or writing tips in general)
  • Fun stuff (like who her favorite superhero is)
  • Gardening
  • Medieval culture (particularly from Western Europe)

And here are some questions to spark your creativity (feel free to use these questions in your interview post if you find them interesting):

  • What is one book everyone should read?
  • Who is your favorite character in Familiar Origins?
  • If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
  • Who are your favorite authors of all time?
  • Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
  • What motivated you to start writing?
  • If you could go anywhere in the universe where would that be?
  • What is your secret desire?
  • Which place in the world are you dying to visit?

After you have the chance to read the book (if you choose to), you can also send B. Pine follow-up questions. Please give B. Pine at least three days to answer your email before following up.
