The Prophecy
by Erin Pemberton


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE: Young Adult Fantasy


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:

In a land plagued by war, King Dorvin and Queen Shiara are expecting their first child. They are excited until the good fairies tell of a prophecy; that their daughter is the key to winning the war against the Shadow tribes. To protect her, mages of the kingdom create a tower to keep her and her guardian hidden until her eighteenth birthday. When Ella turns 18 she leaves the tower, only to find that her parents are dead and the Shadow tribes now control the kingdom. Trained as a warrior, and aided by the good fairies, Ella must now bring her subjects together and prepare for the final war.

EXCERPT:

“You love her, don’t you?” Jack asked quietly, his eyes never leaving Erek’s.

“Does it matter? She and I can never be together.” The sadness of this truth rang through Erek, nearly making him fall to the floor and weep. He’d waited his whole life for her. “You love her as well.”

Jack nodded his head. “Where does that leave us? What are we going to do?” 

Erek feeling more tired and older than his twenty-five years replied, “It leaves us fighting for the same thing. Once this is all over, we’ll figure out the rest. For right now, we need to be content that when one of us isn’t around watching over her, the other is.”

Jack ran a hand over his newly shaved head, his eyes turned to the floor and nodded.

Erek looked at him, seeing so much of himself in this man of light. The same eyes, the same stature, the same look. Even their movements and choice of haircuts were the same. Right down to the chin strap they both wore. Erek never thought of it before, but it were almost if they were the same man. “Do you think, if we lived in another world, that we might be the same person? Me being the darker side and you the lighter?”

Jack looked up at this, his eyes wide and his mouth set in a straight line. “I’ve thought it several times actually. There are times when I’m convinced I passed by a mirror when I see you.”

Erek nodded before turning back to look at the storm brewing. He heard Jack quietly head down the stairs, leaving him to his thoughts. Ella would be safe in Jack’s hands when Erek was no longer there to protect her. He was sure of it. If Jack felt anywhere close to the way he felt, Erek knew she would be loved the way she deserved.

AUTHOR Interview:


How did you come up with the title of your book? 

The main idea behind this book is that Ella has been prophesized about. She is the one the good fairies talked about, so it made sense that I would call the book The Prophecy. Simple and to the point.


Who is your favorite character from your book and why

My favorite character is Erek. Not only is he based off of my husband but he does the right thing for the woman he loves despite his upbringing. Plus, he goes against his whole nation for fight for Ella.


Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book: 

My book is based off the fairy tale Rapunzel with bits and pieces from Sleeping Beauty thrown in. When I first submitted the book Ella’s full name originally was Rapunzella but I was asked to change it to something else because Rapunzella was a mouthful. So that’s when I came up with the name Ryella.


Do you have any unique talents or hobbies? 

I love to paint. Granted, I’m not the greatest, but that’s not point of a hobby. The point is to find something that you enjoy. I also love looking for sea shells and could spend all day looking for them. After vacations, my neck hurts from looking down so much!


How can we contact you or find out more about your books? 

I have a Facebook page, JasonErin Pemberton. My author page for amazon is amazon.com/author/erinpemberton. I also have a webpage that can be found at https://july2219812.wixsite.com/epemberton.


What can we expect from you in the future? 

I’m working on a dragon book of sorts. It’s about a dragon named, Anya who runs away from her home among the other dragons because she’s is considered weak. While making her way in the new world of Agia, she befriends an elf and learns that she is not as weak as she thought when she kills a Zerg, creatures that no one has been able to destroy until that moment. She sets off on a journey with an elf, learning that only she and the other dragons can make a difference in this war. Can she convince them to fight alongside of her or will she be destined to fight alone?


What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful? 

Buy my book and write reviews, but don’t be offended when I don’t read the reviews. I’m funny that way. I don’t like reviews to bias my writing, so I stay away from them.


Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published? 

Don’t give up. It may seem impossible and you may have hundreds of rejections, but there’s someone out there who may just love your story. You’ll never know unless you keep trying.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:


I’m just a small town girl, living in Ohio and making up worlds for my characters to live in. A preschool teacher by day, I live with my amazing husband while dreaming of walking hand in hand with him on the beach just searching for seashells. Together, we have five incredible kids, who are starting to make their way in this world as they take on college, high school, and elementary school. I love Christmas, the beach, seashells, painting, reading anything fantasy related, and in my very little spare time, creating new worlds for others to enjoy.
