The Spotlight Celebration Continues!

EskieMama & Dragon Lady Reads Spotlights turns ONE YEAR this week! 

We started our weekly spotlight back in June of 2016 to help our fellow Indie authors get the word out about their works free of charge. When we started our spotlight we never realized how overwhelmed we would be with request for this little blog’s spotlights, we had to add our Midweek and Sunday Spotlight. As of June we have had spotlights and they keep coming in. We feature a Midweek (romance only), our weekend spotlights Saturday & Sunday (any genre) and our New Release Spotlight. We have had an amazing one year thanks to all the Indie authors who have reached out for our help! 
Jara & Melissa thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for helping us celebrate our spotlights one year milestone!
Thank you all who participated in our FB Hop! Without you none of this would have been possible!
We continue our Spotlight Celebration Week today with our Facebook Party! We have some fantastic guest from …

Welcome To EskieMama & Dragon Lady Reads Midweek Spotlight!
Joe Football  by Autumn Sand
Enter below for a chance to win a signed copy of Joe Football from Autumn Sand!

Hate the game, not the player... 
Only the good die young, but did it really have to be my brother--the only person in my family who understood me?  Growing up in a house that's built entirely on Super Bowl wins, I refuse to love the game and the men who play it.  Football has a way of destroying lives. And here I am frustrated, angry, and empty--sick of everything that has any connection to the sport.  
But then Brice comes along... 
He's everything I want, and everything I hate. Now that he's a part of my world, I can't give him my heart. It's too shattered and fragile for someone like him.  But I keep wondering, can he mend the broken pieces, or will he toss it away like just another one of his touchdown passes?

Release Date: June 13, 2017 Designer: Rachel Connolly Photographer: Sara Eirew Add To GoodReads Here I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard.
