Today I’m taking part in the cover reveal for Kendra E. Ardnek’s upcoming book, Lady Dragon, Tela Du! I’m also sharing an image and snippet from the story. Here’s a bit about the book, and then, the cover!
Two girls with one face
Two girls with twisted fate
One in purple, one in red
One shall speak the other’s death
Who shall win their final war?
Lady Dragon or Tela Du?
Amber, the Lady Dragon, has been promised a fifty-year reign over Rizkaland and nothing can stop her from claiming it. But when you've lived six thousand years, fifty is such a pitiful number. Only one person can keep her from making this reign permanent - the Tela Du, a girl who shall share Amber's face.
The last thing Petra wants is a magical world interrupting her plans for a normal life, let alone an ultimate battle against the Lady Dragon with only one prophesied survivor. She has her childhood best friend, Reuben, at her side, but she's not sure if he's more of a help or a hindrance right now. Though she'd much prefer to just return home and forget about this whole crazy affair, things change when she discovers that the world has surprising connections to her own family - including her sister who disappeared without a trace two years before. Still, Rizkaland can't possibly expect her to risk her very life, can it?
Kendra E. Ardnek is a homeschool graduate who picked up a pen at an early age and never put it down. The eldest of four, she makes her home in the Piney Woods of East Texas with her parents, younger siblings, giant herd of giraffes, and honor guard of nutcrackers.

Note from Kendra: Even though Amber’s the villain and Granite still follows Alphego wholeheartedly, there’s still a lot of love between them. Mostly on his end, but she still very much relies on him. I love the expressions on their faces in this gif, her almost-expressionlessness, and his almost-smile.
“Reuben, we are not going to follow a random stranger to his house!” Petra protested, realizing that Reuben was about to do just that.
“Petra, it’ll be fine,” said Reuben, confirming Petra’s fear. “We need answers about what we’re supposed to do here in this world, and we may as well get them at a house than standing here in nature. Besides, in books…”
“You do realize how often in books, the first person the hero meets is an agent for the enemy? Seriously, Reuben, show some discretion. We don’t even know this guy’s name, and you’re already agreeing to visit his house.”
“My name is Noraeto, if that makes you feel any better, ma’am,” the guy spoke up.
