Happy Release Day for #TsavoPride by @DiamondLB!!! #YA #Horror #ShortStory #Goodreads

Hello, my darlings! Today I have a special treat for you. I have read several of author Laura Diamond's novels and am thrilled to be participating in her newest release TODAY for Tsavo Pride!! Now, let's jump right in, shall we? :D

Laura had such a blast sharing her PRIDE series with you that she’s decided to self-publish a spin-off short story. Set in 1890’s Kenya and based on the man-eating lions of Tsavo, this young adult paranormal short has a decidedly horroresque bent to it.


Teaser trailer time!

Now for the gorgeous cover art!!

Rogue shapeshifters, Santamo and Legeny, believe they are kings blessed with the power to shift into lions. Using that strength, they brutally defend their land from the British building the Ugandan Railroad that threatens their way of life. On a particularly ruthless raid, Santamo meets his match—Naserian. He spares the girl’s life, a move that fractures his relationship with Legeny and blurs his visions of cleansing his territory of invaders.

While the pile of bones in Santamo and Legeny’s cave grows, so does Santamo’s attraction to Naserian. When she challenges him to give up his murderous ways, will Santamo stay on the path of death he believes is his duty, or will he choose Naserian, and love?

Tsavo Pride is NOW AVAILABLE via Amazon for $0.99! Amazon Prime members can borrow it for free. ;)
