My Friend is a Published Author!

My friend Lauren Peterson published her first novel called Iridium

If you like fantasy, murder mystery, and dragons, then you'll love this! I read several chapters in our college workshops and she writes wonderfully; her characters are fully fleshed out, the imagery is so vivid that it feels like you're actually in the story, and the story is intense and takes you on a fun ride. She's going to be the next Neil Gaiman or George R.R. Martin. 

Here's the synopsis:
Kellermark: A seven-tiered city that towers two miles into the sky. It is home to two distinct, segregated races, commonly called the ‘whites’ and the ‘hueds,’ who have viewed each other with hatred and distrust for three hundred years. When hued Lieutenant Elwen Southeridge discovers a massive egg shell alongside bizarre white antiques at the scene of a crime, it is the beginning of a case that will lead him into levels of Kellermark no hued person has entered in centuries. The white levels comprise a technologically advanced world where the streets are policed from the sky by riders mounted on dragon-like creatures, and the residents themselves have been genetically altered in an effort to create a ‘superior’ albino race. With the reluctant aid of a prickly white archaeology professor, Elwen finds himself involved in a case that has far greater ramifications than delving into an illegal antiquities market and solving a murder, but will challenge the societal structure of Kellermark itself.

Lauren even drew the cover herself! I already bought the e-book and I can't wait to read it!
