We’re 3 days away from the release of THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN, which (as the name suggests) centers around a generation of eight time travelers employed by the US government. The Guardians travel through our history and tweak the past to improve the present. Enhancement, not alteration . . . or so they say . . . .
I hired an amazing artist named Liv to sketch pictures of the Guardians, and I’ll be posting one a day, each day before the launch! Be sure to check back each day for a chance to win an autographed hardcover of THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN and a $25 Amazon gift card!

Quote from THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN: Indigo’s in the living room. He’s sitting on the brocade velvet sofa wearing a gray uniform of some sort. Two heavy black boots are propped up on the coffee table. There’s a rifle resting on the floor. Indigo’s popped off the bayonet and is polishing it with a rag. He stops and looks at me.
“Hey,” he says, as if it’s totally natural that he’s sitting there in a uniform that belongs in a museum, polishing a rifle.
“What are you, headed out for a Civil War reenactment?” I ask.
Indigo flashes a coy smile. “Minus the reenactment part, yes.”
