A friend of mine has been writing a fun series of fairy tale inspired novels called The Thaw Series. Also she has just published The Five Gems Series in print as well. So, to celebrate the print release of all of these books, a number of authors and myself are going to be hosting a Facebook party on April 23rd. We would be delighted if you would join us for fun and free stuff (like books).
Beginning with aspects from the The Snow Child, Snegurken, The Snow Queen, plus numerous other well known tales... it's a ride into the world of the unknown, on glittering icy swans and a wind that can blow you anywhere you'd least expect it.
Exploring themes of self-pride vs. self sacrifice, & redemption the Thaw books have been hailed as; "...utterly lovely..."
#1 Winter's Child A barren king and queen pray for a child, and when in their loneliness, they make one out of snow, their prayers are answered in a special, and unusual way. Sometimes, when we get what we wish for, we don't know what to do with it.
#2 In Winter Queen a slightly pampered girl allows her avoidance behavior to isolate her from the world... it's only when she takes the final step that she realizes the wall she's built in the name of safety is also the one that will hold her prisoner forever... unless she discovers how to destroy it. The only one who can break a neurosis... is the one who has it.
#3 Prince of Demarken The whole world knows his guilt, and is absolutely correct about it, but how far can a man go to regain respect so swiftly lost? Or is an honorable death the best a fallen star can hope for? The only person who can help him... is the one he most deeply wronged.
Original "medieval fantasy" with strong family values, friendship, honor and doing what's right no matter how risky. Even if you're young, inexperienced and surrounded by state secrets!
#1 Jeweler's Apprentice
On her first visit to the palace 16 year old Fia Brithin stumbles onto a court secret. To keep the secret safe, the Chancellor sends her off as apprentice to a famous, reclusive, high mountain jeweler. ...And straight into adventure. Discovering gems with deep secrets and new friends with the same, Fia learns a whole lot more than just making wax models. She learns... When to trust a stranger, and when not to; why not to try stealing from gem thieves; what heroism is, what royalty ought to be, and that the mountains themselves can sometimes be the greatest danger of all.
#2 Traitor's Knife
When the loyalist cause enlists the mountain house into a weaponry, young apprentice Fia is confronted with three refugee children, a disturbingly upstart former messenger, and accidents happening everywhere. Are saboteurs out to nix the weapons works... or is it her friend, Othira's incognito crown prince they're after? Traitor's Knife continues where Jeweler's Apprentice ended, and nearly seventeen year old Fia Brithin from the foothills still has a lot to learn about the mountains, and the people now in them.
E. Kaiser Writes credits her nearly nomadic childhood for the vast reach of her fictional worlds; she has lived (and gotten to known the locals) in the Rocky Mtns, the Smoky Mtns, the plains, the deep forest, the searing Texas summer and frozen Minnesota north. She wears many hats: writer and editor of ad copy, web copy, office correspondence & fiction; a cowgirl, animal trainer, seamstress, jeweler, artist and... authoress!
