Lady Dragon, Tela Du blog tour post #1: Author Interview: Kendra E. Ardnek

Today I’m celebrating the release of a friend’s newest novel–Kendra E. Ardnek’s Lady Dragon, Tela Du. We’ve got some info about her books, and then an interview with the author herself!

Lady Dragon, Tela Du cover

 

Book Description: 

Lady Dragon Tela Du poem
Amber, the Lady Dragon, has been promised a fifty-year reign over Rizkaland and nothing can stop her from claiming it. But when you’ve lived six thousand years, fifty is such a pitiful number. Only one person can keep her from making this reign permanent – the Tela Du, a girl who shall share Amber’s face.

The last thing Petra wants is a magical world interrupting her plans for a normal life, let alone an ultimate battle against the Lady Dragon with only one prophesied survivor. She has her childhood best friend, Reuben, at her side, but she’s not sure if he’s more of a help or a hindrance right now. Though she’d much prefer to just return home and forget about this whole crazy affair, things change when she discovers that the world has surprising connections to her own family – including her sister who disappeared without a trace two years before. Still, Rizkaland can’t possibly expect her to risk her very life, can it?

And now for the interview! Please join me in welcoming Ms. Kendra E. Ardnek!

Hello Kendra! Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi! I’m the Arista, a girl who travels through worlds with the purpose of collecting stories and sharing them with the people of my own world. I’m also a certified dragon tamer.

What is your dream for your books? Do you want to become world famous?
I want everyone to read and love my books. If I become world famous in the process, that’d be awesome.

Would you like any of your books to be made into a movie? If so, who would you want involved in the making (actors, director, producer, etc.)?
I’m very interested in my books being adapted into movies. LDTD actually began life as a play and has three complete scripts somewhere in my desk. I have some cousins who are looking at getting into the film industry and we have discussed them adapting my first book, Sew, it’s a Quest. As for actors, I’m not terribly picky at the moment, though I’d like to play Petra and Amber myself.

Sounds cool! What have you found to be most difficult about writing?
Actually getting words onto the paper. I can come up with ideas all day long, and editing is fun, but first drafts are the bane of my existence.

What are your other hobbies/passions?
I dabble in a lot of things. Writing is my big passion, but I have an on-off relationship with knitting, crochet, and some other crafts. I’m kinda into gaming. Mostly RPGs, match-3’s, and hidden object adventures. I occasionally delude myself into thinking that I can draw. But writing’s the big one.

What are you currently reading?
I am currently glaring at my kindle because, despite having hundreds of books, none of them are what I want to read. It’s a mite bit frustrating. I was reading a good book, but then it proved to be a sample, and I was disappointed.

That’s terribly disappointing! Hopefully you’ll find something good! Is there a little-known fact about you or your books that you’d like to share with us?
I believe I’ve mentioned that Reuben is what we would have named my baby sister if she’d been born a boy, but I actually didn’t name the character for her (and, actually, I named him before she was born, and it was still a possibility that I’d get a baby brother named Reuben). My baby sister was named for my Grandmother, who had always wanted a son named Reuben, and so when I was thinking up names for the new love interests that I had created for the Rizkaland cast, naming the eldest of the brothers “Reuben” was a given. In fact, while I think we had settled on Joseph for the middle name for my potential sibling, I chose instead to give Reuben the middle name that my grandmother had picked out – Matthew, for the first book of the Bible.

Thanks for joining me, Kendra! Everyone, go check out this lovely lady!
We’ll be back on the 25th with a character interview!

Adela’s Curse blog tour & Interview

I had the privilege of helping out with the cover reveal for Claire Banschbach’s newest book, Adela’s Curse, last month, and here I am again, with an interview with Claire, celebrating its release. There’s also an awesome giveaway, so stay tuned! (You can find the complete blog tour schedule here.)

* * * * *

Tell us a little about yourself.

I’m a twenty-three year old graduate student, currently working on a degree in physical therapy. I’m a native west Texan and a former homeschool graduate. I love to read and write and watch superhero shows in my spare time.

What is your favorite genre to read? To write?

I love reading fantasy, but I also really enjoy historical fiction particularly that set in the Medieval era. I love to write fantasy!

When did you start writing? What inspired you to write your first book?

I started my first book when I was about seventeen years old. I’d had the story in my head for years and finally decided to try and write it! The story itself was inspired by a deep and abiding love of Narnia and LOTR.

How did you come up with the titles for your books?

My first two books (The Rise of Aredor and The Wildcat of Braeton) were pretty easy to name. RoA is named after what basically happens in the book, and WoB is named after the main character. Adela’s Curse was a bit harder. It was originally just titled A Faery Tale, and I went back and forth on a few different variations before I settled on the current title. Recently though, I’ve had the hardest time coming up with titles! ​

Who is your favorite author? Favorite book?

Brian Jaques is one of my favorite authors of all time. Favorite book is called Shadow Hawk by Andre Norton. It’s an adventure book set in Ancient Egypt. I read it probably once a year.

Looks fascinating! Which author would you most like to meet in person (living or dead)?

G.K. Chesterton. I’d probably clam up and be really shy at first, but hopefully I’d work up the courage to ask a few questions. J Or any of the cool author friends I’ve connected with online.

What are you currently reading?

Speaking of cool author friends, I’m reading Vastian Lore by Steph Gregory. I’ve gotten the chance to work with her on a collaborative website and she’s also helping out with this blog tour!

What is your current WIP?

I have two right now! One is the second in the Faeries of Myrnius series, and I’m having a lot of fun with it. Plot – a prince gets turned into a wolf and he and his brother have to figure out how to change him back. The second is currently titled The Mountain Baron. Basic Plot – a disgraced member of a highland clan is called home to rescue his brother who has been captured by a usurping lord.

Random preference questions:
     Morning or night? Morning.
     Moon or stars? Moon.
     Favorite food? Pizza.
     Favorite movie? Gladiator.
     Favorite genre of:
          Movie? Action/adventure
          Music? Country. But I also listen to a lot of instrumental soundtrack music.

Soundtracks are the best! Is there a little known fact about you or your books that you’d like to share with us?

It’s kind of random, but all my books have horses in them! Even if it is just a passing reference. J

Thank you for having me, Lena!

Thanks for joining me!! This was a lot of fun!

Introducing… Narina! Character Interview

I’m very excited to be doing an interview with one of my very own characters, from a short story/novella sequel to the prequel of my fantasy trilogy. (It’s complicated, I know!). I’m introducing Narina to you, because from now on she will be doing all the character interviews on my blog for me.

And here she is now, so we can proceed.

(Photo from Pinterest)

(Photo from Pinterest)

Narina, it’s great to have you join us. Can you tell us a little about yourself?

As Lena said, my name is Narina, and I am featured in a short story she is planning to write. My grandfather was a human who lived on Artha, but moved to Kharsedon with his three children in his old age. I was born to his daughter in Kharsedon, but I moved to Artha when I was 24. I’ve lived here ever since, trying to blend in with the humans.

 

In what ways do you stand out from the humans of earth (Artha)?

Being half Kirf and half human, I have some characteristics of both. I’m a little stronger than most humans, but I still look like a human. I am a Comunicator – someone who can understand the language of a different species – so that’s easier to hide than if I were a Shifter. Also, the languages of animals here on Artha are slightly different from those on Kharsedon, so they’re a little harder to understand.
I also will live longer, which means I age differently: once I reached 20 years old, I stopped aging. I will not begin to age again until I’m 500 or so.
But for the moment, I just look like your average human!

 

This may seem like a silly question, but for the sake of the readers: are you aware of the existence of your author? If so, what is your relationship with her like?

Yes! We call Lena the Lekhaka, or Scribe. She was my first friend upon my arrival to Artha, and has remained very dear to me. We discuss all the different books she is chronicling, and I help her with the history and language of Kharsedon.

 

What is a special accomplishment of yours?

I am a worlds traveller. I have visited many different worlds through the Gateway (you can learn the fascinating history of the Gateway in the books Lekhaka is writing). I also have the ability to time travel, which I learned on one of my trips to a very technologically advanced world. 

 

That’s awesome! I would love to do that!
What was it like to move to another world?

It was difficult at first, but thanks to the help of Varldine and Lekhaka, I settled in relatively quickly.

 

Glad to hear it!! Thank you so much for joining me for this, Narina! I really enjoyed it.

 

If you have any other questions for Narina, ask them in the comments. She would be thrilled to answer them all!

Water Princess, Fire Prince blog tour, post #2: Interview

image
When the Lady Dragon does come,
Hold fast, do not fear, do not run.
Your Water Princess will fight,
Fire Prince will set all to right.
Each shall come from a Fall,
Their union will save you all.

Despite the fact that she’s on track for competing in the Olympics, and he’s practically raised his younger brothers since they lost their mom in a car accident, Clara Mandras and Andrew Stevenson are pretty much normal teens. They have normal hopes, normal dreams, and they live in a normal world.
All this is torn away from them when they are thrust into another world and declared Water Princess and Fire Prince. With no experience ruling a country, meeting each other for the first time, and being expected to fight the Lady Dragon – an evil sorceress plaguing the world of Rizkaland – Clara and Andrew are underprepared and inexperienced. Unless they learn to work together despite their standing opposition, Rizkaland’s hope will be lost.

What is to come will change their lives forever.

And now for an exciting interview with the author! 

 

Tell us a little about yourself.

Hi! I’m a twenty-year-old author of seven books, I’ve been homeschooled my whole life, am the eldest of four, and I enjoy knitting.

 

Of all the books you’ve written, which is your favorite?

At the moment, that award goes to Water Princess, Fire Prince. I’m rather proud of that hefty collection of words.

 

What is your favorite genre to read? To write?

Fantasy on both accounts, predominately Fairy Tale Retellings and Christian. 

 

How did you come up with the title for Water Princess, Fire Prince?

From the moment I came up with the idea, I knew I wanted the title of the main character as the book’s title. However, for the longest time, I was confused and thought it was Waterfall Princess. My mom set me straight, and I never looked back.

 

What is your current WIP?

I have three that I’m currently focusing on:
The Sequel: Which takes place about a thousand years after Water Princess, Fire Prince, and has a completely different cast. It was also one of the first books I ever wrote, so I’m rather excited about this one.

Poison Kiss: My entry for the Five Magic Spindles contest. Basically, I’m shaking it up with reversing the kiss and spinning wheel’s role and tossing in Puss in Boots.

And Sew We Take The Kingdom: An Anthology of Bookania. This involves revising Sew, and writing one and half short stories, and writing book 3.5.

 

When did you start writing? What inspired you to write your first book?

I’ve been making up stories since before I understood the concept, and so when I learned to write, it was the most natural thing in the world for me to begin pouring those stories onto the page. And since I was homeschooled, and I have a very smart mother, she put a lot of writing into my curriculum. I can’t say for certain what my first book was, but a genderswapped retelling of “Rumplestilskin” sticks out in my mind.

 

What authors/books have inspired you most?

C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and L. Frank Baum.

 

Which author would you most like to meet in person (living or dead)?

Miss Jack Lewis Baillot. This is mostly because we’re working on writing a book together and it’d be really cool if we could sit down and talk about it in person.

 

Random preference questions:
     a) Morning or night? Depends on my mood. Some days I want to burn the midnight oil, other days I’m all system’s go by six in the morning.
     b) Moon or stars? Moon. I actually have a rocket ship and make regular trips.
     c) Favorite food? Spaghetti.
     d) Favorite movie? The Nutcracker ballet – almost any version.
     e) Favorite genre of:
          i) Movie? Fantasy
          ii) Music? Country, Classics, Christian

 

Is there a little known fact about you or your books that you’d like to share with us?

Um … Ooh – in Water Princess, Fire Prince, there’s a mildly important elf named Dular. In the first draft, it was Zindar. However, when I reached his character in the second draft, Dular was the name at the top of my head.

It wasn’t until a few months later that I realized where the name came from – it’s the name of a character’s missing father in one of the WIP’s I have sitting on my back burner, Half-Hidden.

 

Thank you so much, Kendra! I greatly enjoyed this!

So Andrew picked the sword back up, but this time didn’t lift it over his head. He held it awkwardly at about waist-height.
“Always respect your sword,” Abraham said, solemnly. “For it is not only your weapon, but also your defense. You just committed the simplest and most dangerous mistakes a person can make – you left your whole body exposed.”
“I didn’t expect you to attack me,” Andrew countered.
“Ah! So there your mistake began,” said Abraham. “Never assume that a man won’t attack you, especially if you can see that he has a sword. And even if you cannot see that he is armed, still, do not relax. You never know who your enemy is.”
“So you’re telling me not to trust anyone?”
“I’m telling you to not let your guard down at any time.”
And then without warning, Abraham attacked Andrew again, and the sword was again knocked from Andrew’s hand and went flying clear across the clearing.
“But I wasn’t ready!” Andrew protested.
He noticed Abraham’s raised eyebrow and scampered over to get the sword again.
“And what did I just tell you?” asked Abraham. “Stay on guard at all times.”
Andrew picked the sword back up. “I’ve never held a sword before in my life, and you’re expecting me to know how to ‘stay on guard!’”

Interview: Daniel Adorno

I’m very privileged to have the amazingly talented Daniel Adorno joining me for an interview to celebrate the release of his newest novel, Thy Kingdom Come.

 

Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Daniel Adorno and I’m a self-published author who loves to write fantasy and science fiction. I was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Florida. In 4th grade, I wrote my first story out of construction paper and crayon. It was called “The Hot Rod” and it was terrible. Seeing my budding interest in writing, my father bought me a typewriter and my love of creating stories was born! Throughout my middle and high school years I wrote short stories and poetry, but I didn’t pen my first novel, The Blade Heir, until I was in college. After I wrote the manuscript for The Blade Heir, it took me eight years to get around to editing and publishing it.

 

How many books have you written, and what are the titles? What are they about?

I’ve written two novels: The Blade Heir and Thy Kingdom Come.

The Blade Heir is an epic fantasy novel which tells the story of Lucius Nostra, an orphan raised by elves who gets caught up in stopping an uprising of dragons that threaten to conquer his realm. In order to stop the dragons’ deceased leader, Kraegyn, from ascending, Lucius embarks on a quest to reforge an ancient sword that will defeat Kraegyn once and for all.

Thy Kingdom Come is a post-apocalyptic young adult novel that follows Dex Finnegan into a dismal future where a nanovirus outbreak has infected much of the population and turned them into mindless beings who devour electricity. Living in his neighbor’s basement, Dex tries to cope with the loss of his parents by talking over the radio with his best friend Cassidy. When Cassidy’s life is threatened, Dex decides to leave his home to rescue her and also seek out his uncle Richard, an expert on nanotechnology. But his journey to save Cassidy will be fraught with danger as the Mindless roam at every turn and looting gangs of survivors threaten Dex’s life.

 

What is your favorite genre to read? To write?

My favorite genre to read is fantasy, but I’m also a fan of science fiction and young adult dystopian. With regard to writing, I’m very eclectic. I’d love to write an epic drama without any elves or robots in the story. But for the moment, I love writing fantasy and sci-fi. I get caught up in my imagination a lot, so naturally I prefer writing the more fantastical stories!

 

What is your dream for your books? Do you want to become world famous?

My dream for my books is just that they are read by a large audience. I’m not sure I want to be world famous because that sounds like a lot of pressure to deliver a book that everyone will love! So no aspirations to become the next Stephen King or anything like that. I’d be happy to have fifty people be super excited to pick up my next book.

 

You have one, at least! 😉

How did you come up with the titles for your books?

The title for The Blade Heir took me a really long time. I had so many title brainstorming sessions around that book it’s crazy! Tales of Azuleah and The Requiem Sword where both top contenders, but after asking several writer friends those just didn’t pan out and I eventually settled on “The Blade Heir” because it sounded more mysterious and intriguing.

With Thy Kingdom Come, I actually started out with the title before I had a story! I love the Lord’s Prayer and the line, “thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” resonates with me so much that I felt compelled to write a story featuring it. Plus the juxtaposition of a bleak, awful future with the glorious coming kingdom of heaven that the title creates just sounds cool!

 

Who is your favorite author? Favorite book?

My favorite is J.R.R. Tolkien hands down. I haven’t read all of his works, but The Lord of the Rings tops the list of my favorite books. C.S. Lewis comes in a close second with The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe though.

 

I’ll definitely agree with you on that one!!

What authors/books have inspired you most?

I would say that Stephen Lawhead’s King Raven trilogy has definitely inspired me as well as Tolkien and Lewis. Michael J. Sullivan, J.K. Rowling, and Suzanne Collins’ books have also been quite formative to my growth as a writer and storyteller.

 

What inspired you to write your books?

Since my early days as a writer, I always wanted to write a book. I had multiple ideas for stories in my head and they played out in cinematic quality whenever I’d be driving, waiting at a doctor’s office, or just plain daydreaming. The desire became very strong after I watched the Lord of the Rings movies in college. I loved the books and seeing the story play out onscreen was very inspiring for me to finally sit down and write the first draft of The Blade Heir.

 

Which author would you most like to meet in person (living or dead)?

J.R.R. Tolkien, hands down. I’d love to pick the man’s brain about the complexity of Middle-Earth and how he kept it all straight! Preferably over tea and biscuits!

 

Sounds lovely! Am I invited? 😀

Who is your favorite famous person?

My favorite famous person would be Jesus. No one has shaped the whole world and human history in such a short time period and in such a profound way as he

 

Amen, brother!

Would you like your books to be made into movies? If so, who would you want involved in the making (actors, director, producer, etc.)?

Yes, I’d love that! But to be honest, I’d be frightened that it would flop under bad directing, casting, etc. That being said, I’d love Brad Bird to direct The Blade Heir and/or Thy Kingdom Come. And Richard Armitage must somehow be involved in either movie!

 

When did you start writing?

I started writing when I was eight years old in Mrs. Ducharme’s English class!

 

What have you found to be most difficult about writing?

The most difficult part is discipline. It takes a huge amount of effort to block everything out so I can sit down and write consistently every day.

 

What are your hobbies/passions?

Aside from writing, I love to spend time with my family at home, either watching a movie or playing outside. I’m also an amateur artist and I enjoy creating digital art on my computer ranging from fantasy art from my books to website design.

 

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan and three other books I can’t remember at the moment!

 

What is your current WIP?

My current WIP is the sequel to The Blade Heir. I haven’t started an outline for it yet, but I’ve jotted down a few ideas that I want to explore for Lucius’ new adventure.

 

How can we reach you? What is your prefered social media site?

I can be reached on my website: http://danieladorno.com/contact or on Twitter: @lucid_ghost. Preferred social media sites would be Twitter and Facebook, but I’m also on Tumblr and Google+.

 

Random preference questions:
  a) Morning or night? Morning
  b) Moon or stars? Moon
  c) Favorite food? Pistachio Torte
  d) Favorite movie? Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
  e) Favorite genre of:
        i) Movie? Superhero movies
        ii) Music? Christian Rock

 

Is there a little known fact about you or your books that you’d like to share with us?

I used to work at Walt Disney World as a character. Goofy, Captain Hook, and Baloo were my common roles!

 

That’s just awesome!! ;D

Thank you so much for joining me for this, Daniel, I really enjoyed it. And congratulations on your newest release!

 

imageDaniel Adorno is an author of novels based in the science fiction and fantasy genres. He began writing back in 4th grade when his teacher assigned everyone to craft a short book with construction paper. Daniel was up to the task and wrote a book on race cars worthy of a Pulitzer. Before he was a teenager, his father bought him a typewriter for his birthday and Daniel started writing a sequel to the original race car story, which he titled The Hot Rod. Unfortunately, the book was never published, but Daniel discovered a love for writing from that first story and he continued to write short stories throughout high school and into college. His first completed manuscript was a fantasy story that he finished during finals week of his sophomore year in college. For 8 years, the novel sat in limbo waiting to be edited and then Daniel placed in the top five of a local writing contest. Everything changed. He dusted off the novel and a year later his debut novel, The Blade Heir, was published on Amazon.

Daniel currently resides in Minnesota with his wife and two sons. Besides writing, Daniel enjoys reading speculative fiction, creating digital art, and teaching Sunday school students at his church.
