This Independent Bookstore Day indie exclusive of CITY ON FIRE will include designed, tipped-in letter from the author about the inspiration behind his new trilogy.

If Aiyana hears one more traditional Lakota story, she'll scream! More interested in her social media presence than her Native American heritage, Aiyana is shocked when she suddenly finds herself in the magical Spirit World-with no cell coverage! Pursued by the evil trickster Raven, Aiyana struggles to get back home, but is helped by friends and allies she meets along the way. Her dangerous journey through the Spirit World tests her fortitude and challenges her to embrace her Lakota roots. But will it be enough to defeat the cruel and powerful Raven? This Independent Bookstore Day Exclusive will include an exclusive poster with a poem by M. L. Smoker.
