Neumarian Uprising

   "Why, in the name of the Dragon Ancestors, there is no Internet in the cave again?" I raise my claws up. The unbearable need to fry something lights my inner fire.
   Tassin rushes in. "Sire, I think Helmet guy was offended for Sessin's mistake or for losing the guitar duel last Friday. He vented his dark side temper on the modem."
   I sigh. With the challenge coming I can't afford frying dwarves now. "Call the provider."
   My task-master nods but doesn't leave. "Also, you got urgent mail." He hands me a big envelope.

   "We need your help! Thanks to our spy, Ciara Knight, we are able to communicate with you today via blogs, Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
   The Neumarian uprising has begun. We are fighting for freedom and equality for all, but we need your help. Ciara informed us that you might want to know more about the uprising and why we ask you to risk your lives for our cause. To answer these questions I’ve agreed to let Ciara tell my sister’s, Raeth’s, story about her captivity. It will be free for you on a site called Amazon until March 1, 2013.
   Our spies have told us this will help spread the word and find more recruits for our rebellion against the tyrannical queen. You can help by simply downloading a free copy of Weighted a prequel to the Neumarian Chronicles. If you are intrigued and wish to follow our uprising, Escapement, book I of The Neumarian Chronicles, will be available for only $2.99 until March 1, 2013.
   Escapement is told by Princess Semara. Don’t hold the fact Semara is a princess against her like I did, there is more to her than you can possibly imagine.
   Here is a brief explanation of her telling of our uprising:
   Ten years after the great war of 2185 the queen’s reign is threatened by uprisings and fear. In celebration of my sixteenth birthday it is my duty as princess to sacrifice a slave to be initiated into the ruling council, solidifying my mother’s empire. When my own erratic powers surface I’m captured and tried for treason. Slaves hate me, my mother wants me executed, and my only chance of survival rests in the hands of a young man, Ryder Arteres, whose sister I sentenced to death.
   If you’d like to see a peak into our world, please view this short clip on You Tube.
   If you are now ready to join our fight, please add Escapement to your TBR shelf on Goodreads here.
   Shout out on all your social media sites, and tell everyone you know to stand up and fight.
   Be Bold.
   Be Brave.
   Be Free.
   In the name of the rebellion,

Ryder Arteres"

   I put the letter back into the envelope and hand it to Tassin. "This sounds important. Even without Internet, we must make sure people knows."
   "I'll take care of it immediately, Sire." His fluffy mustache wiggles and he dashes out.
