RELEASE BLITZ: Socially Orcward by Lisa Henry & Sarah Honey (Excerpt & Giveaway)
Release Blitz, Excerpt & Giveaway:
Bby Lisa Henry & Sarah Honey
Adventures in Aguillo, Book 3
Dave is a simple orc with a simple life. He has his dragons, his music, and his friends, and that’s mostly enough. Sometimes though, he gets lonely and wishes there was someone he could share his interests with—maybe even someone he could hold hands with, although he knows it’s not likely that there’s a special person out there for someone who’s seven feet tall and green to boot.
So it’s a delightful surprise when Simon Perrin, the new kitchen boy, not only knows all about dragons, but seems to like Dave as much as Dave likes him back. But all is not what it seems, and Simon is hiding a dark secret. There are sinister forces at work, and Simon needs to find a way out of the situation he’s trapped in. If he doesn’t, it could mean disaster for the entire kingdom of Aguillon, and an even more terrible fate for Pie, Dave’s beloved fingerdragon.
When Dave discovers Simon and Pie are in danger, he’s swept up in a rescue mission that spans an ocean, tests a friendship, and has more dragons that you could poke a lute at. It’s going to be a wild ride—literally.
Special Release Blitz Excerpt:
Once Simon had finished eating, a woman who was obviously the cook crooked a finger and beckoned him over. “Take the scrap buckets up to the dragon hatchery,” she said, “and be careful not to drop them going up the stairs. If there’s nobody there, leave the buckets just inside the door.”
Simon nodded, his heart beating faster. “And they’re real dragons?”
Cook fixed him with a stern look. “Of course. But be sure not to touch them. Dave’s very particular about his dragons.”
“The dragon keeper. He’s an orc,” she added casually and Simon felt the blood drain from his face. Nobody had mentioned anything about orcs!
“Is…” Simon dropped his voice to a whisper. “Is he dangerous?”
“Probably, if you mess with his dragons,” Cook said a little too cheerfully. “That’s why we send the new hires. If he eats you, then we haven’t wasted too much time training you.”
Eat him? Simon’s eyes widened and his heart thundered in his chest.
There was a tugging on his sleeve and he looked down to see James grinning up at him. “Dave doesn’t eat people. They’re teasing.”
Simon’s knees went weak with relief, and he had to put a hand on the table to steady himself. “Th-thanks,” he stuttered out.
“Spoilsport,” Millie muttered at James, who stuck his tongue out in reply.

About the Authors:
Lisa likes to tell stories, mostly with hot guys and happily ever afters.
Lisa lives in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She doesn’t know why, because she hates the heat, but she suspects she’s too lazy to move. She spends half her time slaving away as a government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.
She attended university at sixteen, not because she was a child prodigy or anything, but because of a mix-up between international school systems early in life. She studied History and English, neither of them very thoroughly.
She shares her house with too many cats, a dog, a green tree frog that swims in the toilet, and as many possums as can break in every night. This is not how she imagined life as a grown-up.
Lisa has been published since 2012, and was a LAMBDA finalist for her quirky, awkward coming-of-age romance Adulting 101, and a Rainbow Awards finalist for 2019’s Anhaga.
To connect with Lisa on social media, you can find her here:
She also has a Facebook group where you’ll be kept in the loop with updates on releases, have a chance to win prizes, and probably see lots of lots of pictures of her dog and cats. You can find it here: Lisa Henry’s Hangout.
Sarah lives in Western Australia with her partner, two cats, two dogs and a TARDIS.
A teacher once told her life’s not a joke.
She begs to differ.
Her proudest achievements include having kids who will still be seen with her in public, and knowing all the words to Bohemian Rhapsody.
You can connect with Sarah on Facebook, or send her an email at [email protected].
