First things first; today and tomorrow the first chapter of my women's fiction novel Not Her Mother's Fate is being critiqued over at Unicorn Bell. Please stop by and offer your own comments. Thank you.
Hi everyone. I want to thank Donna for hosting me today and spotlighting both my books, The Treasures of Carmelidrium and The Magic of Windlier Woods.
- I'm going to interrupt Nancy for a moment here to say how much I enjoyed The Magic of Windlier Woods. It is the story of Newert the erbit's grand aventure to save his world's failing magic. The story left me giggling and smiling throughout the short approximately 20 minute read. Sold as a children's book, it is an entertaining story for readers of all ages who enjoy humor, misadventure, and fantastical creatures. The only thing that would have made this book more intriguing is to add pictures to with the vivid imagery of the world, and especially Newert. Ok, back to Nancy -
I have approximately five books planned for my epic series. I have notes and outlines and chapters written. In October, I developed acute bronchitis from bug spray which got into my lungs. I never knew how dangerous it was. I am only now beginning to recover. My brain has been mush, so my writing has suffered. I am about one fourth finished with the sequel to Treasures titled, The Rise of Lord Sinon. I also plan to write a novella that pre-dates Treasures and involves the Royal family. In addition to this, I have a new series with a phoenix heroine planned. I am looking forward to working with my heroine as she travels our world visiting many historical events. I hope you will all enjoy these stories.
I welcome all of you to visit my blog. You can read excerpts and reviews for Treasures in the pages section at the top. I will also give one commenter an e-copy of The Treasures of Carmelidrium. Thank you again Donna, for hosting me.
My pleasure Nancy. And what sweet treat – a free copy of Treasures. Let me further entice potential readers with my review of Treasures of Carmeliderium:
This was a delightfully romantic adventure. Missie (Michelle Kersten) is instantly likeable as a the story opens in the contemporary world as she is leaving for spring vacation just two months before college graduation. Her adventure starts within a few pages as her Wrangler swerves off the highway during a snowstorm, and lands her in the mystical world of Gil-lael, where everyone believes she is either a descendant of an evil race of blond haired, blue eyed murderous invaders; or the re-incarnated Princess Lysandra, who's music defeated the evil Lord of the symberveen Druas-Bradwr centuries ago.
The question of Lady Michelle's mystical status is explored through a series of action packed kidnappings, assassination attempts, and rescue forrays. The action plot slows down considerably in the middle of the novel to develop the romance between the two main characters Missie and Prince Healden; but the vivid world and it dangers and beauty are a mainstay throughout the story. An emotional roller-coaster of fear, anxiety, heartwrenching obstacles to love and the fulfillment of prophecy, and the angst of sacrifice for love, duty and honor awaits in this fantastic realm.
Fantasy and romance readers alike will enjoy the spirit of adventure, the multiple POV's of the hero, the heroine, and the mysterious villain (identity not revealed until the final chapters), and indulge in courtly intrigue not unlike the Victorian age of British nobility.

Does she want to?
