Release Day Launch + Giveaway: Goddess Born by Kari Edgren

GB RDL Banner

I am so excited to bring you the Release Day Launch and Blog Tour for Kari Edgren's GODDESS BORN!! GODDESS BORN is a New Adult Historical Paranormal Romance being published by Carina Press.

Goddess Born


Pennsylvania, 1730 

Selah Kilbrid keeps a dangerous secret: she has the power to heal. 

A direct descendent of the Celtic goddess Brigid, it's Selah's sacred duty to help those in need. But as the last of the Goddess Born living in the New World, she learned from an early age to keep her supernatural abilities hidden. The Quaker community of Hopewell has always been welcoming, but there's no doubt they would see her hanged if her gift was revealed. 

When a prominent minister threatens to try her with witchcraft unless she becomes his wife, Selah has only one hope--that her betrothed, a distant cousin from Ireland, arrives as planned. Marrying Samuel would keep her secret safe, preserve her sacred bloodline, and protect her from being charged as a witch. 

But when news of Samuel's death reaches the Colonies, Selah is truly on her own. Terrified, she faces an impossible choice--forfeit her powers and marry the loathsome Nathan? Or find an imposter to pose as her husband and preserve her birthright?
Author photoKari Edgren did not dream of becoming a writer. Instead, she dreamed of everything else and was often made to stay inside during kindergarten recess to practice her letters. Despite doting parents and a decent school system, Ms. Edgren managed to make it through elementary school having completed only one book cover to cover – The Box Car Children, which she read approximately forty-seven times. Things improved during high school, but not until she read Gabrielle Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude in college, did she truly understand the power of a book. 

Ms. Edgren aspires to be a Vulcan, a world-acclaimed opera singer, and two inches taller. She resides in the Pacific NW where she spends a great deal of time torturing her husband and children with strange food and random historical facts. Ms. Edgren hasn’t stopped dreaming, but has finally mastered her letters enough to put the stories on paper.

  4. I am super-excited for this book. I just saw a Carina Press tweet about it and I fell in love with the cover all over again. If prints ever are available, I'd love to buy one. I'd buy GODDESS BORN for the cover alone, but the story sounds right up my alley to boot!
