FKBT features The Tear of Tybaleth.

FKBT (Free Kindle Books and Tips) featured my latest fantasy novel, The Tear of Tybaleth, today under New Releases On Kindle! I couldn’t be more thrilled with the presentation of the book or the results. I had a huge uptick in sales!

About FKBT.

FKBT is an interactive blog providing Kindle tips (I could really use those, as I don’t get much past the basics!) author interviews, special and discounted Kindle book deals, and much more. FKBT is an awesome service for both readers and authors. Readers become of aware of fabulous books they might not hear about otherwise. Authors have an opportunity to feature their book deals and find a larger audience. With 150K email subscribers, authors can reach new readers. Of course, that number can vary by genre. But still! And check this out: more than 600,000+ people read the blog using their free reader app for Kindle Fire or Android devices, like phones and tablets.

I’m most appreciative of FKBT’s Michael Gallagher for letting The Tear of Tybaleth slide past his requirements, as he usually does not feature books that are not the first in a series. I get the logic. His readers can be upset to purchase a book, only to discover that they’re entering a story midstream. But Tear, though part of a series, may be read as a standalone novel. I truly appreciate that Michael responded to my message apprising him of that fact.

About The Tear of Tybaleth.

An idea started percolating in the back of my mind: what was happening in Purpura before events in the my first novel, Wyndano’s Cloak? I had some things to go on.

1. There was a pretty bad actor in Naryfel, the queen of Purpura. In fact, they don’t come any worse. She was spiteful, vengeful, relentless, and if that’s not bad enough, she commanded a hefty arsenal of sorcery.

2. There was a resistance, striving against her.

3. There were some determined characters pitted against her. I began to wonder what they had been up to before Jenren took up Wyndano’s Cloak.

And so the Chronicles of Purpura was born, tales of brave fighters striving against a dangerous adversary. While the stories are interconnected, with overlapping characters, they may be read as standalones.

The Tear of Tybaleth is a fantasy adventure, but with strong romantic elements, and the audience is adults and teens. The story begins twenty-six years before the start of Wyndano’s Cloak.

BTW, a third volume in the series, a pirate story, is in the works, carrying on the tale of Briar, Tear’s heroine.

Upcoming in Tales of the Mystics!

Traitor: Tales of the Mystics, Book Two, by Laurie Lucking

Traitor: Tales of the Mystics, Book Two, by Laurie Lucking

Upcoming in Tales of the Mystics!

Author Laurie Lucking stops by today to share about her latest release, Traitor: Tales of the Mystics, Book Two. Plus she’s letting us in about what’s coming up in this young adult fantasy series. Learn more about Traitor below. But first, let Laurie set the stage. And check out her Facebook launch party at the link below!

What’s Coming Next in the Tales of the Mystics

Thank you so much for inviting me to stop by today! I’m thrilled to wrap up the Traitor Blog Tour with a look at what’s coming next in my Tales of the Mystics series! But before I look ahead, I’ll give a quick overview of the series so far for anyone who hasn’t had a chance to read it yet!

Common, Book One, features a quiet maid who ends up on an adventure to save her best friend (who happens to be the prince) from a disastrous engagement and her kingdom from an overthrow involving a dark sorcerer. Along the way, she encounters a group of mystics—women who have devoted themselves so completely to God (or the Luminate, as He’s called in my fantasy world), that they can channel His power.

Traitor, Book Two, centers on Princess Penelope—the fiancée in that disastrous engagement the prince needed to be saved from. To give her an opportunity for a fresh start after the events of Common, her father arranges a new betrothal for her, this time in a distant country across the sea. While seeking to redeem herself from her past mistakes, she makes plenty of new ones and ends up embroiled in another plot involving dark magic. Meanwhile, back at home, her little brother, Prince Dominick, is being spoiled rotten (that’s a relevant detail, I promise!).

Now, onto the future of the Tales of the Mystics! With the publication of Traitor, I’m both excited and a little sad to say that the series is halfway complete! Up next will be Scarred, a Beauty and the Beast-inspired story following Sister Clarice, one of the mystics in Common. Sister Clarice was haunted by visions of fire, and those visions come to fruition when she rescues a little girl from her burning home. In Scarred, that girl has grown to be a teenager and attends a ball where Prince Dominick, now an arrogant young man, humiliates her due to the scarring on her face. But he’s forced to give her a closer look when she later finds him cursed and on the run and is the only person available to help.

I’d originally planned for Scarred to be Book Two in the series, so it was an obvious choice as Book Three when my editor suggested I first write Princess Penelope’s story. But I wasn’t sure where to go beyond that. I’d planted a hint at another potential story in Common, but as I struggled to outline my initial idea for that book, it became clear it wouldn’t work for my storyworld. And the danger of a series of companion novels is they could go on indefinitely, adding one side character’s story and then another without ever coming to a satisfying conclusion.

Fortunately, I brainstormed a different story springing from that hint in Common, and soon everything fell into place! Book Four will have ties to each of the other books in the series and will even take readers back to the remote mountain retreat where the mystics were originally introduced in Common. Plus, we’re planning to call it Mystic, which will make for a nice pattern of adjective and noun titles—yep, I’m that much of a grammar nerd! 🙂 If I can pull it off, this finale will have the most epic battle scene yet and end the series with a powerful theme about following God’s path wherever it leads. Now I just need to write it!

I so appreciate you taking the time to stop by and learn about my series! I can’t wait to share each of these books with my readers, and I hope you enjoy every character’s journey along the way!

Traitor Synopsis:

Princess Penelope has finally found a way to redeem her past mistakes—if only it didn’t require betraying her new fiancé.

Princess Penelope has been the object of gossip and ridicule ever since she returned home in disgrace following her failed engagement to the Crown Prince of Imperia. When her father offers a new start in a country far across the sea, she has no choice but to accept.

Even if it means another betrothal, this time to a total stranger.

Penelope arrives in Delunia determined to avoid bringing further shame upon her family. But her devoted, caring fiancé makes it harder to guard her heart than she anticipated, and rumors of dark magic haunt her with memories she’d rather keep buried far beneath her pristine exterior.

When a poverty-stricken village outside the palace gates looks to her as their hope for a brighter future, Penelope embraces the opportunity to make amends for her transgressions. But in order to help, she must manipulate her new fiancé, putting her reputation on the line once more. And her heart.

Can Penelope rise above the failures of her past, or will she forever be branded a traitor?

Love and Memory
The Rizkaland Legends #3

Love and Memory Blog Tour!

Author Kendra E. Ardnek stops by today to share about her latest release, Love and Memory, The Rizkaland Legends Book Three!

About Love and Memory:

When a Queen forgets,

Her enemies rejoice in her weakness.

But when the Queen remembers,

They tremble in fear.

When a King loves,

His country rejoices with him.

But when that love is broken.

The land is broken, too.

Can Water and Fire join again?

Can Love and Memory be restored?


They spent years in Rizkaland. They ruled the land, forged friendships, built families, and made it their home. But then it was time to return to Earth, and their former lives just don’t fit anymore. Clara and Andrew struggle to reevaluate their priorities when hundreds of miles separate them. Reuben and Petra are lost as they seek a balance between their old friendship and their Rizkan marriage. And Ashna and Noraeto never planned to return, so what life is there for them on Earth?

When the unthinkable happens and a new enemy arises, they’re all thrown back into Rizkaland, into a young prince’s rise to power and struggle to build alliances for his kingdom. But they no longer belong in their other world, either.

Are good memories too much to bear?

Character Interview

You’re a Fire Prince. How did that come about?

I was minding my own business, living my own life, when suddenly I was in another world, no one could hear my real name, were calling me the Fire Prince instead, and telling me that I was supposed to be their king. So, a very strange day, took a bit to adjust to, especially when I then found out about the Lady Dragon, but I did, eventually adjust.

What were your thoughts and feelings when you first met your wife?

Terror, mostly? Clara’s a very good swordsman, and I first met her on the wrong end of her sword, and she wasn’t happy when she realized that I was the guy she was supposed to marry. Like, it wasn’t anything personal about me, but she just wasn’t happy about what was essentially an arranged marriage.

After being in Rizkaland, what was it like to return to our world and resume “normal.”

Just as hard as I always knew it’d be, perhaps harder. I’m not the boy I used to be.

You have children in Rizkaland. What was it like to leave them behind?

One of the hardest things I’ve done.

My deepest sympathy about the tragic loss of your mother. How did that shape the person you’ve become?

It practically defined me. Since my dad’s an actual absent-minded professor and I’m the oldest, I became the primary caretaker of my younger brothers.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

The fact that I’m once again stuck in my sixteen-year-old body? I was a man, and now … well, I’m beginning to realize why Clara wasn’t really impressed with me when we first met.

Does your fire power ever conflict with your wife’s water power?

Not really. Actually, in Rizkaland, water and fire can combine. Weirdest stuff, and we’ve only done it once, but it’s great for banishing dragons.

Good to know! What’s ahead for you?

I need to figure that out. Younger me wasn’t really concerned with the future – beyond making sure my brothers survived childhood – and now I’m realizing that I need to start looking forward. I’m thinking about becoming a chef, but … it’s a lot to think about.

Here’s the synopsis:

A deadly hunter …

A boy with an ill-fated dream …

Only one can survive.

Caggril, ruthless mercenary and tracker, needs enough gold to release himself from the Purpuran army. Only then can he leave war behind and seek the near mythical land of Aerdem, by all reports a paradise.

Cap, a ten-year-old street urchin, knows it’s mad to attack the brutal queen of Purpura. But he’s hell-bent on realizing his dream, to join the Purpuran resistance, and one bold action might just do it.

Intent on vengeance for Cap’s raid, the queen promises to free Caggril from his bond if he brings the boy back. But Cap has other problems. He learns that the queen is setting a trap for the resistance. With a wolf on his tracks and time running out, he has to warn the Fellowship.

Or good people will die.
