I’m really excited to share that the first major round of edits for my next novel Fate Abandoned is complete. I started writing this book a few years ago around the same time I started Stellix. While this book, the first in a new series, still falls under the Science Fiction and Fantasy category, this is more of a medieval fantasy romance aimed at YA readers. (Don’t worry! There are more space fantasies coming down the line.)
I think the people who loved Cal will find Daphne just as endearing. Daphne is a spirited teenage princess who refuses to have the course of her life be defined by tradition and expectations. Her twin brother Phillip is to go on a quest to prove his worthiness of the throne while Daphne is left to choose a suitor. But after Phillip’s departure, a soothsayer predicts his death, leaving Daphne no choice but to take fate into her own hands and save him. With the help of her loyal maidservant and a pack of outlaws she bribes for protection, she’ll face beasts, brutes and even giants.
It’s not just the story of a princess trying to save her brother. It’s also the story of the love between a girl and, as fate would have it, the thief who stole her heart.
I’m so excited to share this book with you! I hope you love it just as much as I do. It’s been so much fun to write.
I am looking to build a team of advanced readers (both for this series and for other future works). If you are interested in receiving a free Advanced Reader Copy of Fate Abandoned, please contact me and let me know. I’ll add you to my ARC team mailing list. I promise I don’t bite. 😉 Feedback is welcome and encouraged, and once the book is available on Amazon you’ll be invited to leave an honest review. I hope you enjoy it, of course, but reviews of all kinds are valuable to potential readers and can make a huge difference for indie authors like me. I’ll probably limit my ARC team to the first 100 people or so who sign up, so if you’re interested please reach out sooner than later.
I plan to have the book ready for release on Amazon in late January. Stay tuned for updates!
