Hi folks! Jane True here. I star in Nicole Peeler’s series, imaginatively called “The Jane True Series.” I live in a town called Rockabill, Maine, which is sorta near Eastport.
People have been asking me what there is to do in Rockabill, so I thought I’d write a list of “Things to See In Rockabill.” Hope this helps all you tourists!
1. The big thing to see in Rockabill is the Old Sow. It’s the fifth biggest whirlpool in the world. It makes a sucking sound like a pig. And sometimes you might find a body in it, although usually that body is mine. I’m part selkie, and I do love a good swim.
2. Anyan’s Gadonk: Anyan is a barghest, which is sort of a shapeshifting man-dog. Totally not a werewolf. But he lives in Rockabill and has an amazing gadonk. He goes to the post office most Wednesday mornings, but he always parks by my bookstore. You can follow his gadonk from the one to the other, awestruck by its beauty. Just try not to drool. Or maybe wear a bib?
3. Read It and Weep: That’s our local bookstore, and where I work. Before you stalk Anyan’s backside, you can get a coffee.
4. The Trough: Our local diner. It’s amazing! Get the tuna melt. And if your waitress is a stoned surfer-girl, she’s really a shapeshifter! We’re full of surprises in Rockabill.
5. Gus’s boulder: Gus is a stone spirit. His boulder isn’t actually that interesting, but people keep asking about it. For some reason, everyone loves Gus, although he’s kind of rude.
6. Grizelda Montague: Grizzie is a person, but she may as well be a landmark for all the requests I get to see her. She’s very tall, and will stand out. Not least as she’ll be wearing anything from a latex bikini to a chainmail miniskirt. Sans panties. She’s very naughty, though, so approach with caution.
7. My house: I’m not actually giving you my address, you nuts! But you can find me at Read It And Weep. Or following Anyan’s gadonk. While wearing a bib.
So that’s some of the sights of Rockabill! I hope you come visit and enjoy your stay.

About this Book:
Jane’s not happy. She’s been packed off to England to fight in a war when she’d much rather be snogging Anyan. Unfortunately, Jane’s enemies have been busy stirring up some major trouble — the kind that attracts a lot of attention. In other words, they’re not making it easy for Jane to get any alone time with the barghest, or to indulge in her penchant for stinky cheese.
Praying she can pull of a Joan of Arc without the whole martyrdom thing, Jane must lead Alfar and halflings alike in a desperate battle to combat an ancient evil. Catapulted into the role of Most Unlikely Hero Ever, Jane also has to fight her own insecurities as well as the doubts of those who don’t think she can live up to her new role as Champion.
Along the way, Jane learns that some heroes are born. Some are made. And some are bribed with promises of food and sex.
