JQM LITERARY SPOTLIGHT PRESENTS Kingdom of the Faeries: Edenhart’s Rivalry by J.N. Tomczak

JQM LITERARY SPOTLIGHT PRESENTS Kingdom of the Faeries: Edenhart’s Rivalry by J.N. Tomczak

FIRST, LET’S GET TO KNOW YOU A BIT. TELL US SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT YOURSELF:

I love everything retro, and my author logo reflects that. I’m a big fan of the Dark Crystal as well as the Lord of the Rings. I collect nerdy stuff from fandoms I love, like POPs and figurines. I love learning about history, the Civil War and the Revolutionary War in particular. I am also the proud owner of one cat and three pet frogs. When I’m not daydreaming about made-up worlds and characters, I’m usually hanging out with my wonderful husband and biggest fan.

WHAT IS THE GENRE AND AUDIENCE FOR THIS BOOK:

YA Epic Fantasy

WHAT WAS THE INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS BOOK:

After I read and fell in love with the Redwall series, I wanted to give back to the writing community. It amazed me that the power of words alone could conjure all these emotions inside me while reading. It was a pivotal moment for me, the moment I discovered my love for fantasy. I thought it would be awesome if I could write something that meant that much to someone else.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR BOOK:

AN ANCIENT CURSE. A KINGDOM IN PERIL. ONE FAERIE TO SAVE THEM ALL… Darkness is spreading across the kingdoms—and one faerie stands between destruction and survival. Aurora’s peaceful existence is shattered by an unexpected tragedy that leaves her as the last surviving heir to the throne. But her reign is threatened before it can even begin. Her court swells with spies and traitors. There are growing tales of a mysterious blight. Strange riders abroad are hunting for something—or someone. On the day of her coronation, she and her loyal friend, Percy, the newly appointed Flight Captain, discover an ancient prophecy sealed away and guarded in a secret chamber beneath the castle. There they uncover a sinister plot that will spiral her people into a war they cannot win on their own. Her courage and wit will be her greatest weapons if she hopes to succeed where others have failed. She must ask herself just how far is she willing to go to save her kingdom and at what costs?

Beware the Violet Silver Daggers Tour

Beware the Violet Silver Daggers Tour

The Eulogimenoi Series Book 1

by Maria Vermisoglou

Genre: YA Fantasy

Discovering supernatural creatures are real is one thing but learning I have powers and learning to use them is quite a feat.
My name is Violet Webb. I live in a small town that nearly worships Halloween but I hate it. I can’t wait until I graduate and get as far as I can from that silliness.

Everything changed when I followed the white rabbit. I ended up in a Realm full of vampires, fairies, witches and every creature possible.

Oh, Did I mention Jacques?
The hot shapeshifter with the French accent that makes me see rabbits everywhere?

Now what?

Some bloody lady of Fate gave me a prophecy to get home. The only problem is that I must defeat the darkness before it swallows both of our worlds.

Can I go through without making the ultimate sacrifice?

When the Story Chooses the Author by Jenelle Leanne Schmidt

An Echo of the Fae_Internet Use

 

When the Story Chooses the Author

by

Jenelle Leanne Schmidt

 

Out of all the ideas for all the stories in all the world, I decided to write this one. Why? Well, that’s kind of a funny story. Because the truth of the matter is that I didn’t actually choose to write this story. It chose me.

 

That probably sounds ridiculous. But it’s true.

 

I had been bouncing ideas around for a Rapunzel retelling for about six months, but hadn’t come up with anything more than a basic premise that involved Rapunzel being a selkie who was kidnapped by the fae when she was very young, with a yearning for something she couldn’t name, because she’d never seen the sea.

 

Beyond that, I didn’t have much else in mind for this story, and I had a 5-book fantasy/gaslamp series I was working on called The Turrim Archive, and that took precedence. I had no intention of writing this book anytime soon.

 

However, in March of 2019, during which our family was moving and I was purposefully taking a month off from writing so that I could focus on the move, the idea for this story lodged itself in my brain and refused to give me any peace. I couldn’t get it out of my head. I sat down and wrote out a 1400-word outline just to try to get it to leave me alone, but it wouldn’t.

 

I wrote the first scene.

 

Still no relief.

 

March ended, April began, and I went back to writing the final book in my Turrim Archive, but every word was a struggle.

 

April ended and May began. Writing the Turrim Archive continued to be a monumental effort. Occasionally, I would pause and write a little bit of Echo’s story, and the words would come pouring out effortlessly.

 

One night I dreamed an entire scene of Echo’s story, and when I woke up, it still made sense. That had never happened to me before.

 

It was at that moment that I had an epiphany. I was thinking about Samuel from the Bible, and how God audibly spoke to him and called his name 3 times before Eli or Samuel realized that it was God speaking to him. It’s easy to look at the characters in the Bible and think they were super dense not to realize certain things, and it was then that I paused and asked, “Lord, am I the idiot, here?”

 

I decided to talk it over with my husband (for surely he would talk me out of this ridiculous notion, nobody on the planet wants me to finish Turrim Archive more than he does!) and he said that maybe I should pause on Turrim Archive and write this new story!

 

So I did. And the words continued to flow. I finished the book in less than 2 months, and can honestly say that this story was the easiest one I’ve ever written.

 

As for why I chose to write it? I can’t answer that in any sort of satisfactory way other than to say that I didn’t. This time, the story chose me.

Excerpt

Bonds of Friendship

Jerked back to reality, a wide-eyed and gaping Karigan followed as trees parted to reveal a path covered by undisturbed dirt littered with fallen leaves. She hesitated, knowing the path led deeper into the forest. Ralph said no one ever comes out once they go in. But what if the forest draws you in? What happens then? Curiosity won as Karigan stepped forward, taking the path deeper into the Forest of Ferrês. All Karigan knew was that a mystery awaited her, and something told her it was best to keep moving.

Moments of wonder swiftly turned into regret as the trees grew larger and the fairy’s glow fought to keep the darkness away. “Excuse me, Alia, but where are we going?” The light swayed as Alia hovered to a stop beneath a large archway. Karigan stepped closer, eyeing the darkness within and looking over her shoulder as little Alia sat down on a nearby stump.

“Go inside,” Alia said.

“But it’s so dark.”

Giggles rang out as Alia swooped into the air, circling about her and creating particles of dust. “Do not fear, for in darkness is light. Go inside.” The little fairy shoved her back forcefully, making Karigan stumble forward through the archway.

Nothing. All she could see was nothing. Where is the damn light! Panic gripped her. Calm, yourself, Karigan. It won’t do to lose your head. Just breathe and try to relax. Fairies are supposed to be good, trustworthy. Oh…by the gods, the damn fairy is trying to kill me!

Her eyes flew open, and her breathing grew frantic as fear pressed in on her lungs.

Snap!

“What was that?” She turned around. To her dismay, the exit had disappeared. “How the hell?”

Snap!

I’m going to die! She faltered, stumbling over a branch. Karigan hit the ground hard, knocking the wind out of herself. Fear consumed her.

Snap!

Jumping to her hands and knees, Karigan’s eyes locked on the nearby trees. Slowly, her eyes adjusted as she watched, and waited. Silence weighed on her until a rabbit crashed through the brush beneath a nearby tree. “Oh, thank the stars…it’s just a rabbit.”
