The Prophecy
by Erin Pemberton

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Young Adult Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

In a land plagued by war, King Dorvin and Queen Shiara are expecting their first child. They are excited until the good fairies tell of a prophecy; that their daughter is the key to winning the war against the Shadow tribes. To protect her, mages of the kingdom create a tower to keep her and her guardian hidden until her eighteenth birthday. When Ella turns 18 she leaves the tower, only to find that her parents are dead and the Shadow tribes now control the kingdom. Trained as a warrior, and aided by the good fairies, Ella must now bring her subjects together and prepare for the final war.

EXCERPT TWO:

“You love her, don’t you?” Jack asked quietly, his eyes never leaving Erek’s.

“Does it matter? She and I can never be together.” The sadness of this truth rang through Erek, nearly making him fall to the floor and weep. He’d waited his whole life for her. “You love her as well.”

Jack nodded his head. “Where does that leave us? What are we going to do?”

Erek feeling more tired and older than his twenty-five years replied, “It leaves us fighting for the same thing. Once this is all over, we’ll figure out the rest. For right now, we need to be content that when one of us isn’t around watching over her, the other is.”

Jack ran a hand over his newly shaved head, his eyes turned to the floor and nodded.

Erek looked at him, seeing so much of himself in this man of light. The same eyes, the same stature, the same look. Even their movements and choice of haircuts were the same. Right down to the chin strap they both wore. Erek never thought of it before, but it were almost if they were the same man. “Do you think, if we lived in another world, that we might be the same person? Me being the darker side and you the lighter?”

Jack looked up at this, his eyes wide and his mouth set in a straight line. “I’ve thought it several times actually. There are times when I’m convinced I passed by a mirror when I see you.”

Erek nodded before turning back to look at the storm brewing. He heard Jack quietly head down the stairs, leaving him to his thoughts. Ella would be safe in Jack’s hands when Erek was no longer there to protect her. He was sure of it. If Jack felt anywhere close to the way he felt, Erek knew she would be loved the way she deserved.

GUEST POST:

Fierce Female Lead Characters: How to Create Strong Role Models in Books


I chose this question because all of my stories have strong female lead characters in them. Generally speaking, I usually have them paired with males, but the female is always my main character. I have nothing against men, just being a woman myself, I find it’s easier to take their perspective on different matters.

Now, the real question becomes, how do you make them fierce or strong? Well, it may sound like I’m bragging a bit on myself, but I mainly have them respond like I would. I am a mother of five kids, I work full time as a teacher in the process of switching over to a vice principal-like role. I had a child at the age of 17, still completed high school with honors, and then went on to get my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I’ve also obtained my Master’s degree while raising my kids. I work as an editor on the side and somehow manage to find time to write. I’m sarcastic to a tee, I don’t turn challenges down, and I face life head on. Looking at all that I’ve accomplished, I feel I have earned the right to call myself a fierce woman and I want my characters to respond to their challenges with their heads held high and sarcasm on their tongues!

AUTHOR BIO:


I’m just a small town girl, living in Ohio and making up worlds for my characters to live in. A preschool teacher by day, I live with my amazing husband while dreaming of walking hand in hand with him on the beach just searching for seashells. Together, we have five incredible kids, who are starting to make their way in this world as they take on college, high school, and elementary school. I love Christmas, the beach, seashells, painting, reading anything fantasy related, and in my very little spare time, creating new worlds for others to enjoy.

  4. what does it take to be a successful author? I would say that initial reviews and marketing definitely boost your book. I used https://usabookreviewers.com to get a few reviews and also promote my book. Hopping to be in the top 100 genre lists and see better sales this Christmas season…
