Hey, I’m a Black author promoting my new book, stargazer/trailblazer, which I’ve published myself not too long ago. If you’re sick of the mayonnaise-looking casts in typical fantasy novels (I’m looking at you, Tolkien) then this is for you. It’s for sale here (book is available on Amazon, Kobo, Google Play, iBooks, and Barnes & Noble).
Plot: In a world where the population is made up of Readers, those with the magical gift to see and understand the world around them, and mages who manipulate the world around them, the city of Norbourne stands as the royal capital. Astra is just one measly celestial mage living on the edge of town and dealing a mysterious drug as her only means of income. What happens when she and her best friend discover a nefarious plot to take the head of the King? And what’s with this super-pretty princess she’s got to protect along the way?
Please fire me. Having nothing else for me to do, my supervisor told me to look through the releases boxes for used books to sell. Then my coworker yelled at me for going through a box of books she’d set aside for herself.
I write every single day. Maybe it’s nothing large, maybe it’s a single line, but I do it. Every. Single. Day. After years and years of it, after five–FIVE–novels I’ve done nothing with, I AM SELF PUBLISHING ONE OF MY STORIES AND I AM SO EXCITED :D
Rose Burke has been trained to see the Fae as enemies. Conscripted by a mad King for her gift of the Sight, she has spent years isolating herself to become the best of the Scouts—a team dedicated to fighting the Fae.
But Rose’s first patrol in the Fae’s forest goes horribly wrong. Rescued then abandoned by an elven noble, Rose is captured and taken to the wicked Lord Caitiff, the ruler of a brutal Fae Court. Forced into servitude to save her life, Rose is gifted as a pet to the very elf that saved her in the woods, Faolan.
With the once great Court divided into factions—Lokkalfar and Dokkalfar Fae, light and dark—Rose discovers truths about the ancient wars that makes her question all she’s ever known. Desperate to keep another civil war from tearing the Fae apart, Faolan entangles her into his plot to bring down Lord Caitiff, and Rose vows to help keep the Fae tyrant from gaining more power—
A power that, long ago, brought down an entire human army.
My novel will be available in ebook format on Kindle, Kobo, and iBooks! Scheduled release is November 1st 2016!!
