Guest Post with Mina Khan and GIVEAWAY

Thanks Nikki for letting me share on your blog!

Before I was a writer, I was a reader. My father was a sailor and I spent my early childhood on ships with books as my constant companions. Instead of real children, I went adventuring with the young characters of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. Later, the laugh-out-loud Three Singles To Adventure by Gerald Durrell helped me get over a high school heartbreak. And when my son was born seven weeks early and we had to spend sixty two days in the hospital, I read Elmer Kelton’s The Time It Never Rained out loud to him. I didn’t know if he’d make it or not, and I wanted to share a good story with him.

Unfortunately, there are many who will never know the comfort of a good book. According to the UNICEF, 67 million children are currently not enrolled in school worldwide.

I’m thankful for my ability to read and I would like to pay it forward by donating fifty percent of the proceeds of A TALE OF TWO DJINNS to UNICEF. I need your help. I hope you will consider picking up A Tale of Two Djinns, and if you enjoy the read, I hope you will tell others about it. Thanks in advance. I hope together we will make a difference.

A TALE OF TWO DJINNS BLURB:

Akshay, warrior prince of the earth djinns, earns the title of Crown Prince at a high cost when he loses his best friend in a battle against ancient enemies, the water djinns. Heartsick, he escapes to Earth to mourn and lose himself in drink.

Nothing gets the biological clock ticking (and elders lecturing) like almost dying in battle, so Maya, princess of the water djinns, travels to Earth for some no-strings-attached sex to fulfill her duty and produce an heir. But the beautiful and tough warrior gets more than she bargained for when she meets Shay.

Their not-so-simple one-night stand is interrupted by assassins and the world, as they know it, is changed forever. As Maya and Shay pull together to survive, both are determined to have their happily-ever-after and bring peace to their worlds — warring families, shadow assassins, and nosy busybodies be damned.

A TALE OF TWO DJINNS should be available now at Amazon, B & N, Smashwords, iTunes and other places.

  1. Congrats on having your novel arrive early, Mina!

    I also read a lot of Enid Blyton when I was small, and my favorites were the dorm school novels. At the moment I enjoy reading Yoshikawa Eiji’s historical fiction. I also enjoyed Kim Stanley Robinson’s The Years of Rice and Salt, which is about an alternate history post-Black Death.

  2. I love paranormal romance books. Some of my favs are the cyborg and zorn warrior series by Laurann Dohner and the mercy thompson and alpha and omega series by Patricia Briggs. Thanks for the chance.

  3. I love the cover of both stories and will definitely be adding them to my wishlist! Congrats on the surprise early release!!! I love anything with romance in it… doesn’t matter if it’s contemporary, paranormal, UF, historical or a mix! If the story sounds good and it has romance in it, then I’ll read it:) My fav so far of the year is Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire.
