It’s my pleasure to feature my new writing buddy Valerie King here today. I’ve read part of her work, and I can’t wait until I have a minute to sit down and finish it! And her book trailers are pretty much awesome (and she wrote and produced them herself!) I’ve very much enjoyed getting to know this talented lady through the Book Fair, and I’m glad to introduce her to you today. Be sure to check out her giveaway as well before you go.
The Gift of Fate ~ Book 1 (Fatum Saga)
What if you had the ability to know your fate? Would you want the key to unlock the box of the unknown and perhaps change it? Would the end of your story be one of triumph or defeat? Day after day the weight of fate’s demise would ride upon your shoulders. Knowing your risks down life’s treacherous road would be there, but knowing the outcome would not.
This is where I step in. I hold the key to how your story will end…your fate. Shall I unlock it for you? You may call it a gift. I choose to call it a beautiful curse. I’m repeating myself. My mind is no longer my own. It seeps with images of you. I know where your life will end up, which road you will choose to walk and which shadow you’ll run and hide in. The moment your path ends at the edge of a cliff, I know whether you’ll turn around and walk the other way…or jump.
Guardian ~ Book 1 (Unseen Wings Novella Trilogy)
The last two weeks had been completely exhausting. Rehearsing my lines until I was blue in the face, my final dress fitting, and receiving the new, small tattoo that fell just beneath my right shoulder blade. A single, white feather was now visible for the rest of the dinner party to see; a rite of passage to those that join the group of guardianship. It was a sacred mark of our society.
Tonight was my Guardian induction…a ravishing party that was planned for every new Guardian member on his or her eighteenth birthday. Not only would I finally become a formal member, I would be given my Shomer, the name of the individual that I would vow to protect for the rest of my life. It would become a sacred name branded across my heart for safekeeping. To say I wasn’t completely nervous would be flat out lying. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, and my stomach twisted in knots, leaving me nauseous instead of hungry.
Trey Parsons sat across the table from me, his constant glances leaving me uneasy but somewhat flattered in an awkward, spellbinding sort of way. His dark brown hair hung loosely around his face, as if begging for some woman to run her hands through it. His evergreen eyes were mesmerizing, which caused my eyes to wander away from my plate and to his face repeatedly. Even the way he chewed his food was completely hot in a weird sort of way. Although I guessed my real problem was that I was infatuated with this twenty-one-year-old Guardian. We had only spoken on a handful of occasions, but I was determined to get a word in with him later this evening.
Author of young adult fiction….with a twist.Valerie has always possessed a vivid imagination and a mind full of stories waiting to be told. As life moves forward, her pen has finally hit paper and incandescent sagas are being written. Her passion has transformed itself into the Fatum Book Saga, Unseen Wings Trilogy and a number of short stories. May you find a fable of deceit or perhaps a love story to fill your heart. Welcome to her journey…
Valerie lives with her husband and their three children in Dallas, TX.
