New Book from Sarah Pratt, an Austin Author (and Friend!)
A good friend and local Austin author has published a book on Amazon. It is available for free download via Kindle (not sure for how long!). Congrats to our friend Sarah Rodriguez Pratt on her first published work! And why not celebrate entrepreneurs of the literary sort. Here’s the About the Author:

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in English from Harvard University, and a Master’s degree in Information Science with a specialization in Preservation Administration from the University of Texas at Austin. Currently, she divides her time between writing fiction and running Quail School Media, her copywriting and editing company. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and their two rescued dogs.

And the abstract on the book itself:
Helen dreads every day at her high school. The other kids call the quiet, overweight Latina sophomore a nerd—if they notice her at all. Her boyfriend prefers LARPing to hanging out with her. Her best friend wants to ditch her for the popular crowd. If only she’d become a Glorious Dragonfighter four years ago in the magical world from her favorite fantasy books. Too bad her sorceress friend—the one who first brought her over to the beautiful land of Erwingdon—mysteriously abandoned her. But when Helen suddenly receives a second chance to become a Dragonfighter, nothing can ruin her happiness—until she has to train with two arrogant jocks and a bitter “weirdo” from her school. The teens struggle to find common ground in the grassy Erwingdonian hills…and pretend not to know each other in the gossipy school hallways. And when catastrophe strikes, Helen must discover who her true friends are—because the only thing more dangerous than a dragon is betrayal. Part “The Lord of the Rings,” part “The Breakfast Club,” the first story in the exciting, fast-paced Helen of Hollingsworth trilogy will delight teen and adult readers.
I know we would make her day if she gets a few more downloads, reads, or buyers of her work!
