Win Dragonlight

I'm honored and delighted to talk up my dear friend's latest release, Dragonlight. Donita K. Paul is a major name in Christian fantasy fiction. Her books appeal to all ages--middle grade through adult. The kindly teacher in her draws flocks of kids, not only to her books, but to her web site and her site on Shoutlife.

She says one of her biggest awards was the day a young lady whispered in her ear at a booksigning. The girl said that she and her boyfriend had determined to remain pure like Kale and Bardon in Donita's books. That "award" came from God, and she treasures it like no other!

Because Donita's books are so special to me as her critique partner, I have a specific requirement for anyone to be entered in the drawing. Please tell someone else about her books--a family member, a relative, a co-worker, a friend. (Not the dog or the toddler. LOL) Refer them to this blog post for more information if you'd like. Then respond with a comment below, citing who you told, and you will be entered in a drawing to win a copy of Dragonlight. Oh, by the way, this whole series makes great gifts for young and old, for believer and nonbeliever!


The fantastic land of Amara is recovering from years of war inflicted on its citizens by outside forces–as well as from the spiritual apathy corroding the Amarans’ hearts. With Kale and her father serving as dragon keepers for Paladin, the dragon populace has exploded. It’s a peaceful, exciting time of rebuilding. And yet, an insidious, unseen evil lurks just beneath the surface of the idyllic countryside. Truth has never been more important, nor so difficult to discern.

As Kale and her father are busy hatching, bonding, and releasing the younger generation of dragons as helpers throughout the kingdom, the light wizard has little time to develop her skills. Her husband, Sir Bardon–despite physical limitations resulting from his bout with the stakes disease–has become a leader, serving on the governing board under Paladin. When Kale and Bardon set aside their daily responsibilities to join meech dragons Regidor and Gilda on a quest to find a hidden meech colony, they encounter sinister forces. Their world is under attack by a secret enemy… can they overcome the ominous peril they can’t even see?

Prepare to experience breathtaking adventure and mind-blowing fantasy as never before in this dazzling, beautifully-crafted conclusion to Donita K. Paul’s popular DragonKeeper Chronicles fantasy series.

"DragonLight is a delight, but I wouldn't expect anything less from the marvelous Donita K. Paul. I heartily recommend her books to all ages who love inspirational fantasy and wonderful creatures. Ms Paul not only supplies imagination and talent, she provides heart and soul. Another winner!"~KATHRYN MACKEL, author of Boost

"Donita K. Paul is amazing! DragonLight has the allegorical depth to satisfy the most discerning adult seeking spiritual depth, yet it is fun enough to fascinate a child. This book will enthrall, uplift, and if allowed, change lives--as we are gently drawn to realize that each of us is flawed and must have patience with other flawed believers."~HANNAH ALEXANDER, author of Double Blind


Donita K. Paul retired early from teaching school, but soon got bored! The result: a determination to start a new career. Now she is an award-winning novelist writing Christian Romance and Fantasy. She says, “I feel blessed to be doing what I like best.”
She mentors all ages, teaching teenagers and weekly adult writing workshops.“God must have imprinted 'teacher' on me clear down to the bone. I taught in public school, then home schooled my children, and worked in private schools. Now my writing week isn’t very productive unless I include some time with kids.” Her two grown children make her proud, and her two grandsons make her laugh.
Donita is an award-winning author of the Dragon Keeper Chronicle series including DragonFire and DragonKnight. When not writing, she is often engaged in mentoring writers of all ages.
Donita lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado where she is learning to paint–walls and furniture! Visit her website at

The story about the Deist was wonderful. Never know who God is going to reach or what He may use.

I've told many people about Donita's books ever since I read the first one, but the last one I told, after reading your blog, was Brandi. She's a teenager who goes to my church and has a Shoutlife account. She and her sister like sci-fi and fantasy; well, so do her parents. I know they'd love the books. I gave her the link to come to your blog as well.

You're right about the whole set being great for gifts. I hope to one day be able to get another set to give to y church library.

Hey, Jill! Thanks for including me on your blog. I think I know Cathikin who has already a posted for your contest. If she is the Cathikin I'm thinking of, I know her from Shoutlife.
