Cover Reveal! “Borrowed Magic” by Shari Lambert

ShariLambert

 

Borrowed Magic
Shari Lambert
Publication date: February 1st 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

After a three-year siege, Lord Kern, the dark mage, is dead. Magic has left Tredare, and life is almost back to normal.

For everyone except Maren, that is.

Before the siege, an attack by Lord Kern left Maren near death and with a sliver of magic buried deep inside her. Now, for reasons Maren doesn’t understand, that magic has been triggered, giving her the ability to “see” the truth: that her world is nothing more than a magical façade; and that the kingdom’s hero may not be a hero at all.

But this gift of sight comes at a high cost. Maren is in constant pain, and fears her own death is imminent. Plus, no one believes her suspicions that another Dark Mage has risen, and that Tredare may be in just as much danger as it was when Kern was alive.

With the country’s future in the hands of a man who’s vowed revenge on its king, Maren must convince someone else of the truth. Unfortunately, the only person powerful enough to help is also the one man she can’t trust; the man she almost married; the man who abandoned her and disappeared for three years: Kern’s son.

As Tredare crumbles around them, Maren must persuade him to help – before the king is murdered by the very hero he reveres; and before the same magic that gives Maren the gift of sight also takes her life.

Author Bio:

Shari has always loved to read. “Bookworm” may even be an understatement. But when she discovered Georgette Heyer in high school, her love of reading exploded. Ms. Heyer’s books were not only entertaining, witty, and smart, but they saved Shari from the awkward, unromantic teenage years. To this day, Shari’s favorite books all have romance in them.

Although Shari spent a good deal of her time at Brigham Young University on the ballroom dance team, she did manage to get a BA in History and English before going on to get a Juris Doctorate. After graduation, she decided her first priority was to be a mom — a career she’s stuck with and loved.

In between cleaning, laundry, and homework, Shari writes. Just like with reading, she wants to get lost in a world, whether imaginary or historical.

She lives just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband and four children.

Authors and Memory

Yep. Editing can really suck the brain away from all those other things. Kind of like the last major round of edits I did: I kept calling cordon bleu”grilled cheese”… Ah, the fun. We’ll chalk it up to a necessary work hazard. 😉

Having said that: thanks to all the spouses and loved ones who put up with it! It’s not always easy, I know.

When I edit lots
My brain gets fried
And I forget things
Like (a) whether or not I had a coffee;
(b) What my name is;
(c) What the time is;
(d) Whether I stopped for that red light or not;
(e) What the name of this student in front of me is,
And (f) why I’m an author.

When I write,
My memory improves.
I remember point (f).

Do sit back and relax for a spell.
Three tales from Spirit I have to tell.
Moving ahead from lives felt wrong.
Finally found—a place to belong.

 

Words Needed by Regine Allison Claire

Tess: teenager, studious, voracious reader, and in her high school, she couldn’t be more of a misfit. It’s not just a social label; it’s frustrating and isolating. Is she too “weird” to belong anywhere?

When her love of fantasy literature and history collide in an assignment, she gets more answers than she could have ever expected.

With a single word, she will find acceptance.

 

Power Walking by TJ Burns

When Leda’s recent heartbreak leaves her sleepless and depressed, she begins a new ritual of taking late-night walks. One evening her midnight wanderings reveal a sight that both frightens and intrigues her.

Is the shrouded circle of women a figment of Leda’s exhausted mind, or are they the gatekeepers on her path to empowerment?

 

Home by Jamie White

Julie has always been curious about her family’s spiritual path, but she’s never been allowed to take part in their traditions because of her age. Now that she’s reached adulthood, she must decide whether to dedicate herself to their path, or forge her own.

Release Day! “Out of the Shadows” Flash Fic Anthology with My Story “Burden”

OOTS-sm

 

Experience three chilling tales of darkness and hidden secrets.

 

Burden by Regine Allison Claire

Fifteen-year-old Keldie has a terrible secret—her cousin is locked up in her parents’ house.

She’s never seen him but she hears him, frightening her almost as much as the visions of the yellow-eyed bear that haunt her.

After another boy is rescued from a similar situation nearby, Keldie is at the crossroads of truth. Is she a monster for hiding her parents’ secret? Will confession set her guilty heart free?

 

Everyone Knows My Name by Andrew P Weston

Tony Roberts was a man who, for years, had been forced to suffer the ignominy of ridicule and ostracism because of his outlandish scientific theories.

Shunned by his contemporaries, he sought to justify his methods by any means possible, just so his name would end up on everyone’s lips, where he felt it belonged.

One day, he got his wish. Little did he realize it would be for all the wrong reasons.

 

An Act of Faith by Ed “CC” Emerson

Imagine the fear.

Fear of being discovered.  Fear of being caught.  Fear that any one of your neighbors might turn you in.  Fear that, at any time, the Secret Police might break down your door and drag you off into the night—never to be seen again.

All simply because of An Act of Faith.
