*GRANTED* Blog Tour & Giveaway!

I've blogged before about The DungeoneersMs. Bixby's Last Day, and Posted. 
I've more than blogged, I've shared my love of John David Anderson's characters, worlds, and experiences. And I hope what I've really done is help his books find their way into the hands of more readers. I don't know this author personally, but sometimes I feel like I do. I feel like I know what kind of man Anderson is. A great one. The characters he wrote in Bixby and Posted are so rich and complex. I loved Dungeoneers, but find his next two novels to be an entirely different experience. Anderson's writing is evolving so beautifully. And I simply cannot wait to see what unfolds in the pages of this novel.

Here's a bit of honesty: The book was overnighted to me, but with a full day of toddler momming and teaching 3rd grade, there just wasn't time to read it in under 48 hours. Which I'm not sad about, because I wouldn't want to rush this anyway. I'm only telling you this because it's important to know why I'm not sharing my honest review of the book today. That's to come, in case you want to check back. *Spoiler alert: I will probably love it.*

Granted by John David Anderson 
(Published February 13, 2018) 

Everyone who wishes upon a star, or a candle, or a penny thrown into a fountain knows that you’re not allowed to tell anyone what you’ve wished for.  But even so, rest assured: There is someone out there who hears it.

Ophelia Delphinium Fidgets is no ordinary fairy – she is a Granter: one of the select few whose job it is to venture beyond the boundaries of the Haven and grant the wishes of unsuspecting humans every day.  It’s the work of the Granters that generate the magic that allows the fairies to do what they do and to keep the Haven hidden and safe.  But with worldwide magic levels at an all-time low, this is not as easy as it sounds.  On a typical day, only a small fraction of the millions of potential wishes get granted.  And even granting those promised few means navigating a human world fraught with danger.

Today, however, is anything but typical.  Because today, Ophelia is going out on her first assignment.  And she’s about to discover that getting what you truly want takes much more than a handful of fairy dust. (Granted)

John David Anderson is the author of Ms. Bixby's Last Day, Posted, Sidekicked, Minion, and The Dungeoneers. A dedicated root beer connoisseur and chocolate fiend, he lives with his wife, two kids, and perpetually whiny cat in Indianapolis, Indiana. You can visit him online at www.johndavidanderson.org.

Did you know that Anderson will skype your class or book club for FREE? I'd suggest you read aloud one of his amazing stories before requesting a virtual visit.
