New from Sorcha Mack: A Dragon Walks Into a Bookstore, available now from all online retailers.
Evvie Drake may be a dragon, but she’s awkward and offbeat at the best of times. She just wants to build a quiet life in the magically liminal town of Twilight, California, and maybe figure out how to flirt with Isa, the cute owner of the independent bookstore that Evvie frequents.
But something about the author at the latest signing event feels off. He smells like rust, he’s leaving almost-invisible tar all over his books, and he has a history with Isa. Isa may think she has to deal with him on her own, but she’s about to learn what it’s like to have a dragon like Evvie in her back pocket.
