Meet the Princess

Prophecy of Darkness, book one of the Legends of the Tri-Gard series, releases as part of the Fire and Fantasy box set, available for just 0.99 for a limited time. Find out how to purchase it at the bottom of the post. 

“A journey such as this was no place for a princess – so she wouldn_t be a princess.”

My name is Rissa and I’m a princess. I didn’t ask for this life. I didn’t want guards or expectations or an overbearing brother. All I’ve ever wanted was to fight for my people, to ease their suffering.

But I’m just a poor woman. Little old me apparently can’t do what my brother can. They didn’t let me train with the army – only low born women were allowed that. I’m expected to marry a man I despise and pop out darling little royals. Knowing my future husband, they’d come out with horns. Little demons. 

My realm is in trouble. My home. My people. If they think I’m going to just sit by and watch it wither and die, then they don’t know me at all. There is something I haven’t told them. I can hear the earth sing. I feel the struggle as it tries to thrive and I feel the heartache every time it fails. That connection that was lost to the people of Dreach-Sciene? I still feel a part of it. I have to save the land.

Ris

None of them believe in me. Not my father, the king, nor my brother, the Toha. Davion doesn’t even fight for me to come and that crushes me, because he’s … well, I won’t get into that. I’ll just say he’s infuriating and my world grows dark when I think of leaving him for my impending marriage.

Such is the life of a princess. If they won’t give me what I want, I’ll just have to take it.

Never underestimate a pissed off woman with a bow. 


Prophecy of Darkness

Only magic can save them from what is coming, but first, it must be reclaimed.

Twenty years ago, war devastated Dreach. Bloody and cruel, it ravaged the realm and stripped magic from Dreach-Sciene.

Without magic, there is no hope. No life. For Prince Trystan Renauld, there is no choice. As his people starve, his enemy prepares for a final showdown that will decide the fate of the realm. Without magical power, he and his people will lose everything. Even with it, they may fail.

Against a backdrop of prophecy, curses, and forbidden love, Trystan must reunite the legendary Tri-Gard, keepers of the magic, and find the power he’s always believed was a fairy tale: magic, the very foundation of life. With both sides preparing for battle, it’s a race against time—and against the kind of darkness that can destroy them all.

Eileen Enwright Hodgetts and PHOEBE AND THE STEEL CITY VAMPIRES

Eileen Enwright Hodgetts was transposed from England to Pittsburgh PA and couldn’t be happier. She has also lived and worked in South Africa and East Africa. She has been a writer all her life (and that’s quite a long time)and she has written mainly for the theater with many of her works winning national awards. Since she turned her hand to writing novels she has seen her Arthurian series Excalibur Rising climbing steadily up the Fantasy Best Seller lists. Her latest venture is to be screenwriter for a movie that will go into production in July 2017. Eileen owes her success to her husband who is the one who markets her books and keeps her nose to the grindstone.

Phoebe and the Steel City Vampires

Phoebe accidentally enslaves a domestic vampire; he’s great around the house but his master wants him back.

Steve Turnbal and REBEL DRAGON

Author of over a dozen Fantasy, Steampunk and Science Fiction books, Steve Turnbull has been creating stories for as long as he can remember. He has a passion for female leads, diversity and inclusion, only exceeded by his desire to tell powerful and exciting stories. Technically he’s a London cockney but now lives in the north-west of England with the Pennine Hills as the view from his window (just across the road, in fact). He shares his life with his creative family, and some very distracting animals: a dog and cat who barely tolerate each other, plus three Australian Bearded Dragons and an indeterminate number of Giant African Land Snails.

Rebel Dragon

It’s a crime to ride a dragon, but what if it insists?

Kantees has been a slave for as long as she can remember but as a keeper for a racing dragon, her life is not too bad even though it’s a hanging offence for her to ride.

When mysterious raiders infiltrate her master’s castle, she is forced to take to the air to raise the alarm and now lives in fear of being discovered. What’s worse, the youngest child of the family has been kidnapped and only she has the clue to the raiders’ origin.

She is torn between preserving her own life and letting a child die. Or breaking all the rules to preserve a system that keeps her and her people in slavery.

Book Review – Wendy Knight

Princess of the Damned by Wendy Knight

Find out how to get this book for FREE at the bottom of this post.

prod

The Story:

Landon has never seen his own reflection. He saw hers instead. He grew up watching this girl in the mirror grow with him. Grew up memorizing every feature, every movement, every horror she endured. He can see into her palace, into the darkness she’s trapped in.
When he was little, he told his parents about her. They thought she was an imaginary friend, and they humored him.
But she didn’t go away.
And when Landon was seventeen, he fell in love with her.
She is a captive of the Queen of the Damned.
Now he’ll risk everything to try to save her—his life, his home, his entire world.
Bloody Mary
The queen in the mirror.
Bloody Mary
Waiting to steal your soul.
Bloody Mary…

The Review:

Wow, this was a great one. An incredibly original story-line with fierce characters. Eiress and Landon live in two completely different worlds. The story continually switches between the two and the contrast is basically between light and dark. It’s fascinating. Landon is in our world. He has normal parents, a normal girlfriend, a normal life. Eiress is in a castle of nightmares, chained and forced to go to balls with the souls from hell. She’s lived there for fourteen years and her strength is astounding.

The story is well-crafted and I love that it’s based on an old scary tale that every child knows. Saying Bloody Mary three times into the mirror will bring her forth. It’s a myth that has been made real in this book. Frightening and intriguing. This isn’t a book to miss.

Joss Dey and UNDERTOW

Joss Dey, a devoted fan of fantasy literature since age eight, dreamed of being able to create her own magic and did so for sixteen years as a graphic designer.

However, the desire to follow in the footsteps of her childhood hero, Susan Cooper, never left her and, in her greatest act of rebellion, she pursued and received an MFA in Creative Writing from American University.

Though she stopped “screwing around” and eventually “got a real job”, she never stopped writing, intuitively comprehending that she would never be happy if writing didn’t play a major role in her life. Luckily, she joined RWA in 2004, a move that happily confirmed that being a writer is an affliction from which there is no cure, at least there isn’t Joss’s case.

Today, from her basement office in the ghetto in New Haven, Connecticut, she writes emotionally-driven urban fantasies that explore questions about love, family and self amidst bizarre creatures, odd goings on and the end of the world

Undertow

A world born of merged realities, turbulent and jagged and overrun with monsters…a woman infected with unruly magic, unknowingly using her soul to find love…

 

Samuel Stokes and THE WOMAN IN THE WIND

Samuel Stokes: Many people love to read a great fantasy book. I love to live it! When I am not glued to my keyboard busily writing my next work, I can be found clad head to foot in armor, LARPing like a mad man. For those not familiar with the notion, LARP stands for Live Action Role Play where people get in costume and armor and fight over real-life battlefields. It’s action packed and amazing, which is exactly how I like to write.

In my work, you will find yourself submerged in thrilling new fantasy worlds. Each coursing with conflict that transpires at an incredible pace. I draw on experiences from my life and time spent living in Australia, the U.S.A, and Japan to enrich the narrative of my books and provide you a taste of familiarity, as you plunge headlong into a scintillating new world.

The Woman In The Wind

The demands of duty, the pull of fate, the love of a lifetime.

Evolution of a Book Cover

It’s here and we’re ready to share the beautiful design with all of you. Michelle Bryan and I have been working with an artist and a book cover designer for what feels like forever, but we couldn’t be happier with the final product.

Our process for this was different than any cover I’ve ever had. The biggest difference was that we decided we wanted custom artwork instead of stock photos. This limited us severely because most covers designers can’t turn a sketch into a vector graphic. Luckily, our wonderful graphic designer, Ann-Maree Macmillan could.

We gave her plenty of headaches, but the final product was worth it.

The first thing we did was get the artwork done. Linda Higgins is an author who also has an incredible talent for art as well. We described – sort of – what we wanted and she ran with it.

18253883_10158519991110570_2059673455_n

3907POD Sigil COVER merge.png

If you look closely at the final one, it has been texturized to look ancient with magic bursting through. Each circle contains an image called an Orianthi Rune. They represent Magic, Darkness, Chaos, and Disorder. The sigil as a whole represents dark magic.

Next, we had to choose a background. Ann-Maree sent us a number of colors to choose from in the same style. We wanted simple, yet elegant. Purple is a royal color. It’s also on the darker side.

Font was simple because we absolutely loved the first one we were sent. The final touch was the gilded corners. Michelle Bryan was adamant that we have them and she was right. So, Ann-Maree designed the corners using the Sigil, magic the Celtic knot design.

POD Corner

Believe it or not, one of our most difficult decisions had to do with series title. We knew it was Legends of the Tri-Gard, but were we going to call this book one? Just one? Roman numeral one? We settled on Volume one after probably too much agonizing. Haha. Then there was the issue of both of us being Michelles. So, when you see M. Lynn – Hi, that’s still me <;

Finally, after holding our breaths for a few months, we have our cover. It’s different than many in the genre. Our decision not to include people on it is not the norm, but it’s right for us. It’s right for this story.

POD Kindle WEB

We hope you enjoy our book! It releases on September 12th as part of the Fire and Fantasy box set – available for pre-order now.

Meet the Orphan Ward of the King

Prophecy of Darkness, book one of the Legends of the Tri-Gard series, releases as part of the Fire and Fantasy box set, available for just 0.99 for a limited time. Find out how to purchase it at the bottom of the post. 

 

Hello, beautiful people, especially the ladies out there. I’m Davion. No last name, just call me Davi. 

Davion.pngYou may recognize me as second-in-command to the Toha of Dreach-Sciene, the prince. Prince Trystan Renauld is my best friend, my brother.

When I was just five, his father, the king, took me into their household. I was an orphan, being taken care of by the people of the village until our hidden seer figured out that I was important. Me. Davi. Orphan. I have a destiny. I’m going to help Trystan bring magic back to the realm. I’m going to try my best not to fall in love with a princess I can never have. And I’m going to fight like hell, give everything I have, to win.

Oh, and I’m going to look damn good doing it.

 

“I don’t know if this mission will succeed or what will happen if it does, but …” A lump formed in his throat. He’d never cared about anyone enough to say the words. Ri looked at him without expectation in her eyes and he knew none of those other women mattered.
It was always her.
It would always be her.
Only he would be stupid enough to fall in love with the princess.
The princess and the orphan ward. It was ridiculous.

Jason Paul Rice and PLIGHT OF THE PERFECT PRINCE

Jason Paul Rice’s true passion is helping people that are victims of circumstance. He would like to gain enough influence through writing to provide books and ereaders to the homeless and underprivileged children of the world. His mother always made sure that he got to the library or bookmobile to feed his appetite for books but Jason realizes that some people don’t have this option and would love to make literature readily available for everyone.

Plight of the Perfect Prince

Everything about the eighteen year old Prince’s life was perfect…except for one thing.

Axelle Chandler and CRESCENT ROGUE

Axelle Chandler is an Australian Urban Fantasy author. She lives in the western suburbs of Melbourne dreaming up nail biting stories featuring bad-ass witches, hunky shape shifters and devious monsters. She likes chocolate, cat memes and video games. When she’s not writing, she likes to think of what she’s writing next.

Crescent Rogue

Every new beginning must come from an end, and with each defeat a new future is born.

The first memory Boone has is running.

Hunted by magical forces beyond his understanding, he crash lands in the forest outside the sleepy Irish village of Derrydun. It’s there he meets the odd and slightly eccentric Aileen, the last of the Crescent Witches…and discovers he’s lost who he is.

Boone is a shapeshifter, a human born with extraordinary powers, and he’s wanted. By what or whom, he doesn’t remember.

With his memory locked away by unknown forces, he soon learns there is nothing he can do to regain them…unless he steps outside of the protection of the ancient hawthorn and faces the darkness that awaits him.

When he finally gathers the courage to cross the boundary, what he finds is only the beginning of his problems.

Magic is being hunted…to extinction.

Crafting A World Part 1

Fantasy writing is its very own beast and can be very overwhelming. To keep sane, I did a few things. First, was I found a writing partner who was talented and as driven to make this story as great as we could.

Second, we started to build our world. That’s what this series of posts will focus on. How did we create the backdrop for the grand quest that spans the Legends of the Tri-Gard series? Fantasy

We decided on two realms, with one of the realms having three kingdoms. That was easy. Next, we wanted names. Before we could dive into culture or rulers or topography, we had to choose a language. Both of us loved the idea of melding other languages to give color to Dreach. It allowed us to set the tone. Would we go ancient? Modern?

In the end, we decided to use Old English and Gaelic. In these two languages, words didn’t only have one meaning. They had many. They became ideas rather than just singular objects. That’s why we chose to blend the two. Deep meanings can be conveyed in a single beat. Even our location names can hold more power.

Now, don’t freak out. Most of our book is still in English. Just had to clear that up. lol. But we sprinkle in other words to add life to the pages.

Some of the best moments are when Trystan or Davi says “Truwa brathair” meaning “trust, brother”, but they aren’t just proclaiming their trust. Truwa also means promise and fidelity and many other similar things. When Davion says it, it’s a statement of faith in his prince. When Trystan, as Prince, says it, it’s a powerful proclamation about his friend. The prince, whose very title demands respect and loyalty, is giving that loyalty in turn – and to a boy most would deem unworthy.

Here are the rest of the terms we’ve woven through.

Aldor – (All-door) Old English for life. ‘Aldorwood’ means the wood of life.

Bràthair – (Brah-thair) Gaelic word for brother.

Dhoun – (Doon) Old English for dark. ‘Dreach-Dhoun’ means dark magic.

Dreach – (Dray-ach) A simplified spelling of the Gaelic term ‘draiocht’ meaning magic.

Isenore – (Eesen-oar) Old English for iron mine.

Scíene – (Scene) Old English for beautiful, brilliant, light. ‘Dreach-Sciene’ means light magic.

Sona – (So-na) Old English for hope. The Isle of Sona means the Isle of Hope.

Tá sé in am – Gaelic for ‘it is time’.

Tenalach – (Ten-eh-lahct) – An Irish term for a deep connection with the earth.

Toha – (Toe-Ha) An old English term meaning the leader of an army, but also a leader of people.

Tri-Gard – Gaelic for the three guards.

Trúwa – (True-wah) Old English word for trust, fidelity, promise.

Uisce – (Ish-ka) Gaelic for water.

Prophecy of Darkness will be available as past of the upcoming Fire and Fantasy box set.

Prince Trystan Renauld.png

You may call me sir, lord, prince. My newly obtained title of Toha still feels foreign. I am Trystan Renauld and one day I will be king. One day I will have all of Dreach-Sciene in the palm of my hand.

That day is not today. Today I am the shield. I am the sword. I am the protector of our people, the symbol of hope. The army has been placed under my control, but that is the least of the burdens on my shoulders. When war comes, our army stands no chance. And make no mistake, it is coming.

King Calis of Dreach-Dhoun is preparing to unite the realms as they once were – under a single king. The difference between our realms? His still has magic. Ours is barren.

Trystan.pngI don’t even know if I believe in magic. It was said to be stolen on the day I was born. I’ve never seen the fantastical things people talk about.

But we don’t have many options. If I want to prevent my realm from being turned to dust, prevent my people from becoming cattle driven to the slaughter, then I better hope it’s real.

A myth won’t save us.

 

This Tri-Gard and their magic is the only thing that just might.

Here we go.


Prophecy of Darkness

Only magic can save them from what is coming, but first, it must be reclaimed.

Twenty years ago, war devastated Dreach. Bloody and cruel, it ravaged the realm and stripped magic from Dreach-Sciene.

Without magic, there is no hope. No life. For prince Trystan Renauld, there is no choice. As his people starve, his enemy prepares for a final showdown that will decide the fate of the realm. Without magical power, he and his people will lose everything. Even with it, they may fail.

Against a backdrop of prophecy, curses, and forbidden love, Trystan must re-unite the legendary Tri-Gard, keepers of the magic, and find the power he’s always believed was a fairy tale: magic, the very foundation of life. With both sides preparing for battle, it’s a race against time—and against the kind of darkness that can destroy them all.
