Fire Quill Publishing Presents: Thunderlight, book 2 of the Dragonian Series by Adrienne Woods (that’s me!)

NRCTHUNDERLIGHTBLOGTOURBANNER

Author Bio

Adrienne Woods was born and raised in South Africa, where she still lives with her husband and two beautiful little girls. She always knew she was going to be a writer, but it only started to really happen about four years ago. In her free time―if she gets any because moms don’t really have free time―she loves to spend it with friends, whether it’s a girls night out, or just watching a movie. She’s a very chilled person. Her writing career started with Firebolt, book one in the Dragonian series. There will be four books in total, including a further two to three books, which will be stories that take place within the Dragonian series. Her other series, Dream Casters, will be released mid 2015. She also writes in different genres, and her woman’s fiction, The Pregnancy Diaries, will be published under a pseudonym. And then, she has a paranormal series by the name of the Aswang series, which will consist of about ten novels. And if that wasn’t enough, there is another series, Guardians of Monsters, which will be released in 2016. NRCAUTHORPHOTOADRIENNEWOODS

Excerpt One

SUMMER WAS ALMOST over but everyone’s spirits were high as Sammy searched for something in her room. I had recently arrived at the Leaf’s after spending the first weeks of my vacation with Becky. Sammy was in rare form this evening as she bounced off the walls of the room with barely contained excitement.

Elena, cheer up! We’re going to the Warbel games and I know it sucks that Lucian won’t be there, but I promise, you’re going to enjoy it, okay.” Sammy spoke fast as I moved out of the way of one of her shirts as it sailed toward me.

“Sammy, it’s not like I’m trying to be like this, I just really miss him …” my lips puffed out a breath. “Tell me again why the Warbel games are so mind-blowing.” I tried to change the subject away from Lucian. He was still away on a hunting trip with his father and the girls had decided the best way to brighten my mood was a sport that basically sounded like Greek warfare. I still had no clue what the Warbel games were about even after Sammy tried to explain it to me as she searched for the jersey of her favorite team. It sounded exciting as words like soldiers, attackers and scorers made it into her lengthy explanation.

“Because it’s the Warbel games,” she simply said.

The only thing I retained was that Warbel was some sort of dragon and human sport that they loved to play on this side of the wall. She also said that Dragonia had a similar game at the beginning of each school year, but it wasn’t as dangerous as the real one. I became even more confused when she started talking about raiders and incantations and couldn’t figure out how all of it came together.

  Guess I’ll have to see it before I can really understand what it’s all about.

“The one thing you need to understand is that the game we are going to tonight is really dangerous,” she added as she continued to tear apart her closet, “and that the humans who participate are extremely well developed magic wielders, for their own safety as much as winning the game.”

  Okay, awesome. I thought sarcastically as I still had no clue what the Warbel games were about.

Sir Robert had gotten five tickets for all of us from a friend who couldn’t make tonight’s game.

Lucille, Becky’s mom, had also gotten tickets for her, Becky and George, so we were all going to the game together.

I had spent the first three weeks of my vacation with Becky and Lucille. Lucille was not a typical mother, but was the most selfless person I’d ever met. She also seemed way too young to be Becky’s mom and looked more like Becky’s older sister. She hated it when I called her Mam or Mrs. Johnson, and insisted that I called her by her first name. She was a lot like Becky in a sense, they shared the same type of fashion choices and clever comments, but she also had a love of art, which Becky didn’t have. That part connected with me one hundred percent.

Becky and her mother lived in the totally opposite neighborhood of the Leafs, and they had more money than I could even dream of. I guessed it was why Becky was a bit of a brat. Staying with them made me realize what type of a person she could be sometimes. Having all that money made Becky bossy and turned her into someone I never thought I would be friends with. But the thought of not having her around to give me her two cent comments, especially when I didn’t ask for them, was unthinkable. She was also one of the bravest and fiercest girls I knew and the best friend, apart from Sammy, a girl could ask for.

Author: Realm Lovejoy
Genre: YA Fantasy
Number of pages: 350
Word Count: 70,000
Cover Artist: Realm Lovejoy

Book Description:

Inspired by one of the greatest legends of all time…

Modern-day Camelot. Where knights no longer carry swords. Magic is dangerous. And those who seek control are not to be trusted.

Sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is a fire user. An ordinary girl with an extraordinary skill, she has the ability to create and command fire at will. Her dream is to become the Maven—the right hand of the future King Arthur. In the chance of a lifetime, Morgan is selected to join Arthur’s Round, an elite group of young magic users from which the new Maven will be chosen.

Along with the other fire, water, and wind users in Arthur’s Round, Morgan is rigorously trained and tested. The handsome Merlin, a brilliant water user, takes a particular interest in her. Is his friendship to be trusted, or is Merlin simply trying to win the position of Maven for himself? Among the many rivals Morgan faces is the current Maven, Mordred, who seems determined to see her fail.

But Morgan has a secret—years ago, her mother was executed for using fire magic, and Morgan’s desire for justice makes her more than ready to take on the challenge before her. Can she prevail in Camelot’s tests of survival and magic? Only time—and Morgan’s powerful fire—will tell.

Realm Lovejoy’s modern Arthurian series features one of literature’s most complicated and powerful female figures. Henge is the first book in the LE FAY series, and—like Morgan le Fay’s magic—it is sure to dazzle and amaze.

Release day blitz for Thunderlight

ORIGINALAWOODSPOSTSIGNOFFHi Everyone, I’m sure you are all just as excited today as I am. Today is the release of my second novel in the Dragonian Series called, Thunderlight. Unfortunately, it is only available for now on Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, ibooks, kobo and will be available real soon on Amazon. I’m so sorry for this delay. The paperback will be available soon too.

Book Description

Vibrant, scale swathed wings… Abilities that can be harnessed by a chosen few… Dragons…

All this may seem like old news, but for seventeen year-old Elena Watkins the world of Paegeia is not finished revealing all its secrets. During a summer break intended for relaxation, she discovers that her harrowing adventure to retrieve the King of Lion sword wasn’t the destiny foretold by the cryptic Viden, a dragon with the ability to see a person’s true fate. The words inked onto the page of the mysterious Book of Shadows remains black and Elena must return to Dragonia Academy to discover their true meaning.

Upon her return to the magnificent castle she has to face a challenge of a different kind, keeping her boyfriend Lucian McKenzie, the Prince of Tith and love of her life, away from the dangerous new student, Paul Sutton. As a Wyvern, Paul has made it his mission to claim Elena as his rider but he is proving to be more perilous than at first glance.

Everyone knew that Wyverns were bad news, and just as evil as the darkness that lurked inside Blake Leaf, the Rubicon forced to fight against his inner nature every day. But Elena can see a small light lurking in the darkness, a destiny still unfulfilled; to prove that Wyverns can be claimed.

Will Lucian’s dark secret about Wyverns and Elena’s need to prove their true nature cause their love to be torn apart? And which of Elena’s friends will be sacrificed this time if she is wrong?

I hope you all will enjoy the second part of The Dragonian Series and don’t forget to purchase the 1.5 novelette called Venom.

I’m officially back….

Hi everyone,

So sorry that I was MIA for a couple of weeks. I’ve been super busy with book 3 of The Dragonian Series, Frostbite. It’s cover is coming in January and we are looking at Feb publication with my first women’s erotic fiction written under Isabella White called You and Me 4Ever. Yes, that is how the title is going to be written, with that 4.

I’m also working on 4 other novels. The second book after You and Me 4Ever is called Secretly 4Ever and that one is half way through. I’m going to try to publish them months apart from one another. A beautiful story, think Grey’s mixed with Jonathan Spark. I know they are huge hits, both of them, but it’s the only way you will get more or less an idea what they are about.

Then Adrienne Woods is bringing out a brand new series called Dream Casters. Yes, like the Sandman. Completely different from The Dragonian Series where you will meet Chasity Blake and her endevours of being a Dream Caster. It’s also set for 2015. Shadow Caster will be the follow up, and I’m still thinking about a name for the final novel.

Another pen name of mine is Kristen Ping, and I’ll be releasing Guardians of Monsters as her Debut Novel. Yes, all of them have personalities of their own. I have to otherwise these books will never get done and it will be more or less the same as Adrienne Woods writing. Hahahahaha, feel sorry for my hubby, shame poor thing.

Aside from the writing, I’m running three blogs. One, the one I’m using right now to speak to all of you, another I’m running with a friend of mine and an author called Lea Cherry on Two gals and plenty of Books. http://confessionsofafantasywriter.blogspot.com and one that is with our publishing company I opened with author Carlyle Labuschagne, called Fire Quill Publishing.

I mainly open that publishing company so that I can try to open the market in fantasy, paranormal and Sci-fiction. South Africa is a bit behind when it comes to the literary world and it’s time the market grows, but we do take on international authors as we are expanding to all over the world. Our USA branch will hopefully be running somewhere next year and then we have a UK branch in thought too. So please if any of you are looking for a home visit us at http://www.firequillpublishing.com.

We also have a designing department that help other authors, not with FIRE QUILL, get their novels in top shape. It’s run by me but we have a team of cover artists, book layout specialists and more for almost next to nothing. So visit us there at http://fqpdesign.blogspot.com. The URL will get customised soon to http://www.fqpdesign.com

So now you know what I’ve been up to, I would love to hear what all of you have been up to. Pop me a small comment below and say hi, I’m still alive.
