I’m happy to share a link to this month’s fantasy channel podcast at New Books Network! I was interviewed by the host, Gabrielle Mathieu, about Taylenor, and the interview is currently available here!
Gabrielle interviewed me about Jaena, the main character who is a Priest of her goddess, Imn-ashu, and about what Imn-ashu — and Jaena — stand for in their world. We talked about Mage Herrein, the Mage Defender, who steals the power of children to feed his own. And about some of Jaena’s companions on her desperate quest to save a life.
I thoroughly enjoyed the interview. There is a new author podcast available every month as Gabrielle interviews authors of new fantasy releases.
Taylenor is available in ebook or paperback editions.
“The headwoman had brought out her best mugs, blue-glazed treasures from the artisans in Duscapi. No doubt they’d been purchased at great cost to this tiny village and were brought out only to honor guests. Guilt pricked Jaena. The headwoman might not be so welcoming if she knew Jaena would be taking a child away from Bless-us-goddess.” — Taylenor
I’m happy to announce that my new stand-alone fantasy novel, Taylenor, is now available on Amazon in print and Kindle editions!
This is the story of Jaena, a young priest who travels to isolated villages, blessing births and singing the souls of the departed to her goddess. In one village she finds Wiel, a teenager with the rare mage talent known as taylen.
Jaena takes Wiel to the city to try to save his life. Too late, she discovers that she has delivered Wiel into the hands of the Mage Defender, who rules by stealing the magic — and the lives — of children.
If you like a good fantasy read, check out Taylenor on Amazon. I hope you enjoy the novel! Here are the links to the print edition, and the Kindle edition.
