The Waterfall Traveler by S.J. Lem ~ Guest Post and Giveaway

The Waterfall Traveler
S.J. Lem
Publication date: April 19th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
All eighteen-year-old Ri wants is to cure her adoptive father Samuel from his hallucination-inducing illness. Everyone in her village tells her it’s impossible. But when she meets two newcomers in the forest—a gruff rogue with a vendetta against the gods and a charming fugitive who saves her life—she’ll be torn away from Samuel and swept across the sea to an oppressive city governed by a ruthless tyrant. Once there, she’ll not only have to confront Samuel’s unlawful past, but a vicious evil that threatens all mankind. 
In this tale of bravery, friendship, and unforeseen love, Ri risks it all to save those she cares for. But if she prevails, she’ll find the one thing she yearns for most—a cure for Samuel.

Ten Quirky Facts About Me

1.  I love tacky roadside attractions. I even dragged my husband along on a road trip once to see the world's largest ketchup bottle, and we attended the yearly festival that worshipped said bottle.

2.  I love creating pottery, bowls especially. Trimming a bowl is almost therapeutic.

3.  I once volunteered as a black jack dealer (having never played blackjack in my life) to raise money for a charity.

4.  I love to travel. My favorite trip to date has been a road trip along the Romantic Road in Germany.

5.  I'm terrified of geese, those foul creatures. 

6.  I love avocados. I could eat one everyday!

7.  If you ever play a board game with me, be prepared to face a ruthless opponent.

8.  Before my son was born, I was a volunteer gardener at a zoo in Chicago. (I plan to return once my son is a little older.)

9.   My arch nemesis is the laundry pile, but one day I will be victorious.

10.  My fingers are double jointed, and I can usually get a few surprised looks when I bend my thumb all the way back.
