THE NINE

The Mirrors of Bershan, Book 3

TheNine

Description

Civil unrest is being stirred by unseen hands in the Rianzire Empire. The Prince’s secret has been revealed; laws have been changed. Worse, a second Mirror of Bershan has gone missing. When the Emperor involves himself directly in this mystery, the results are disastrous.

After defeating the demon Aviatrez, Faylanna and Tavis return to Rianza, hoping their troubles are over. Faylanna is uneasy about the recently revealed truths of her childhood. Tavis is worried for his father, Crown Prince Keari. They find all is not well and nothing is as expected on their arrival.

Unable to ignore her problems performing magic any longer, Faylanna insists on leaving Rianza in search of a solution. Tavis’s inability to come with her is no deterrent, nor is the unborn child she carries. Faylanna leaves his side as Tavis is duty-bound to remain in the capital with his father. For the first time since meeting, they’re parted and neither expect the reaction of the magical bond they created between them.

Can Tavis fulfill his duties and survive unexpected challenges, even as he fights the constant demand from their bond to find her? Is there a solution for Faylanna to find and what will be the price if she finds one?

BOUND

The Mirrors of Bershan, Book 1

Bound, Book 1 in the Mirrors of Bershan trilogy.

Description

“Doesn’t she know you can’t do real magic alone?”

Faylanna Derrion’s graduation from the Voleno Academy is marred by her father’s demand that she return to the family estate, Iondis. He refuses to accept her decision not to bind herself to another Magicia in an unbreakable partnership, insisting she must do so with his help. No one understands her need to prove she can succeed on her own.

Then her mentor and his partner are taken before her eyes by a terrible darkness, forcing her to flee, even as her father’s soldiers try to force her to go home. On her journey to find help, she meets Tavis, a farmer in search of his mother, who she can’t manage to refuse. The revelation that he’s a novice Magicia causes Faylanna to question everything she’s believed.

At the same time, a dream that’s haunted her since childhood begins to change and the unknown man in it calls to her. His words are sweet but she’s not quite willing to believe he’s anything more than a dream, until she can’t deny it.

As secrets are revealed and events unfold, will Faylanna hold to her solitary path or will she choose the one that now beckons her with new possibilities?

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR BOOK RELEASE

TODAY’S BREW: Coffee. A lot of it. You’ll see.

By Julie

We aren’t all wearing white blazers with the sleeves rolled up, sunglasses inside, sitting behind our huge desks admiring our business mullets in the mirror wall of our corner office from our oversized leather chairs. (This is my vision of an eighties marketing genius.)
THIS guy would probably spam the shit out of you on Twitter.
Buy my book, it’s my debut novella and my uncle said it’s the thing Stephen King wishes he wrote.
Or
I worked my ass off on this book that looked like a good idea at the time but you can all but have it, just please, please look at me.
The John Cusack friend of his that works at the ice cream shoppe or somesuch would have written this incredible work of imagination, and you would never hear about it over the din of White Blazer spamming his shit at you all day.
Where was I? Right. I’m convinced there is a happy medium of marketing yourself and your book, and I am speaking specifically to Twitter. I’ve seen so many spammers, as we all have, where you know nothing about them except their book link has been put out more than a hooker at a sailor convention. Then you have your friends, the people who you know probably more than your real life friends, and they have a release day and they tweet the link once and never again.
Here is my two cents:
IF I KNOW YOU AND LIKE YOU AND KNOW YOUR KID’S NAMES THEN I THINK YOU’RE WORTHWHILE. CHANCES ARE, IF I THINK YOU ARE WORTHWHILE, I THINK YOUR WORK IS WORTHWHILE. IF YOU HAVE A CERTAIN SPARK ABOUT YOU THAT MAKES ME WANT TO TALK TO YOU EVERY DAY, THAT SPARK WILL CERTAINLY SHOW IN YOUR WORK. SO TELL ME ABOUT IT.
We hear all day about spammers and how much we dislike them. But we never hear about the authors who work their tails off and never breathe a word about their novel. Guys, don’t be afraid to tell me your book is out! Don’t be afraid to be proud of your accomplishment. Remember, Twitter is a tool for us. Your followers follow you because they like you. These are the people that are going to enjoy reading your work, so tell them about it! Sometimes. Nicely. And then move on and say other stuff. I want to know there is more to you than the jokes you make, so rest assured, I want to hear about your book.
LET ME HELP YOU KICK WHITE BLAZER’S ASS.
