Top Ten Ways to Spot a Draki by Sophie Jordan, Author of Firelight and Vanish!

Today I'd like to welcome Sophie Jordan, author of Firelight (quite possibly my favorite book of 2010). The sequel to Firelight, entitled Vanish, releases in just a couple of weeks on September 6th- Hurray! Sophie stopped by today to share with us an amusing guest post on her top ten ways to spot a draki. (For those of you who haven't read the book, a draki is a person with dragon ancestry and certain capabilities)

Vanish (Firelight, #2)

Sept. 6th 2011
To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.

Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?

In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.

 Top Ten Places to spot a Draki by Sophie Jordan

1)      In Jacinda’s pride, of course. Good luck finding it.
2)      In the night sky, if the climate is right.
3)      Um, wherever you find Will Rutledge.
4)      In a hunter’s net.
5)      In the clutches of the enkros.
6)      Snapshots can be found on several UFO sites. You didn’t think that was really a flying saucer, did you?
7)      Well, normally it wouldn’t be Chaparral... but these days, you better go ahead and look there.
8)      Wherever there is an unusual amount of mist/fog.
9)      According to Sophie Jordan’s husband … “In your face!” Yes, he’s forever a teenage boy at heart. ;)
10)   Maybe right next to you….they walk among us, after all.
