Happy Book Birthday, FIRSTBORN!

My first young adult fantasy is launching today! Thanks for celebrating with me!

"A fantasy that reads like a lost history tome and deftly examines issues of gender...An engrossing story with welcome depths." Kirkus Starred Review

Girls Life magazine calls it, "a dystopian read packed with a fierce punch."

Where does a firstborn girl fit in a world dominated by men? When Tiadone was born, her parents had two choices: leave their daughter outside the community to die, or raise her as a male. Now grown, Tiadone must prove her father didn't make a mistake by letting her live. As her male initiation approaches, feminine gifts and traits emerge, and the bird she's been twined with is seen as a sign of evil. Drawn to her male best friend, Tiadone tries to become what she must be while dealing with what she indeed has become.

Around the web, folks are partying. Readers are playing for a box of 11 books. Read about it here. Author friends are posting photos of their last release, sharing its birth order, and wishing FIRSTBORN well. All Girls Allowed is focusing on the impetus for the novel, gendercide.
 
It's a great day! Thanks again. May all female infants be allowed to live! xox Lorie Ann

I did a review of FIRST BORN on my blog at http://bemiown.blogspot.com. I was given a complimentary copy from BOOKLOOKBLOGGERS for my honest opinion. It also went to Amazon, Goodreads, Shelfari, Bookaholics, Google+, Bloglovin, Facebook, Twitter and a few other places. KEEP WRITING
