The Great & Powerful A to Z Theme Reveal

Today is the 2014 A to Z Challenge Theme reveal. I chose my theme way back in January and have been determinedly working on my posts since. I'm so excited to reveal my theme. Without further ado:

In honor of the genre in which I write, I'll be highlighting a favorite fantasy character.

My hope is that those unfamiliar with the genre will be intrigued enough to give it a try. I often hear, "I'm not into that fake stuff. I prefer reading material based on real life."

Well let me tell you friends, fantasy may have made up worlds with made up characters that don't exist in real life, but the themes are very real. These characters struggle with very real emotion, political situations, and identity.

So I hope you're intrigued and will come back to check out a few of my posts on this theme. Thanks for stopping by!

And don't forget to check out my debut novel!

Shine 7: Lost Haven, my first ever published work is available on Amazon. If you enjoy it, please leave a review and check out the other Shine stories by the various contributing authors also available on Amazon.

In the near future, a few young women manifest extraordinary abilities called "Shine." Each girl's ability is different. Some develop extraordinary mental abilities. Some become physically strong. Others have powers that defy description. But the world does not embrace these Shines. It fears them.

Camille’s life hasn’t been the same since her parent’s supposed murder suicide. When an intruder ransacks her home and she discovers a mysterious thumb drive hidden in her father’s office, she realizes the unwanted changes in her life are just beginning. Politics and conspiracy, betrayal and abduction. Camille is about to discover that change is inevitable and hiding is not an option.
