With so much resting on his fragile faith, Harius fears he will ultimately fail

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

 

Stephen R. Watts was born and raised at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains in Northern Utah, where he developed a love for stories at a very young age. Having spent his adolescence creating alternate worlds where he could escape the hardships of mental illness, Stephen wanted nothing more than to grow up and write his own epic tales capable of entertaining readers in ways that reminds them of their untold worth. Stephen’s debut novel was a fourteen-year labor of love, and when he isn’t studying story craft he can be found traveling the world or spending quality time with his family in Salt Lake City.

 

 

When sixteen-year-old Harius is chosen to guard a mystic key and sword, he’s sure there’s been some mistake. Protecting the divine relics requires the celestial flame, a power that only mystic warriors can wield. And while Harius is training to become such a warrior, he’s lacked the faith needed to access the flame ever since his mother’s tragic death.
Despite his doubts, Harius accepts the calling at a time when evil forces threaten to destabilize his world. As the son of his nation’s most controversial leader, Harius soon becomes a delegate to a foreign land filled with technological marvels capable of saving his ancient race of winged men. Acquiring the necessary tech won’t be easy, though, as the king of this land won’t share it unless Harius uses the celestial flame to rescue the royal family from a foe out to conquer the realm.
With so much resting on his fragile faith, Harius fears he will ultimately fail. Yet, amid all the danger he will learn that the relics he guards hold the secret to not only restoring his faith, but to revealing his untold destiny.

Snippet:
Harius thought back on the countless hours of study and physical conditioning he had endured since he had been inducted into the Zehnarch Order, and the realization that all that effort may very well have been in vain began to make him feel as small and fragile as he had felt on the day the war had taken everything from him.

Their wishes become intertwined, changing the course of their futures

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

 

 

Danyelle Ferguson discovered her love for the written word in elementary school. Her
first article was published when she was in 6th grade. Since then, she’s won several
awards and has been published world-wide in newspapers, magazines and books.
She’s grateful every day to work in her dream jobs – author, editor, and nurturing her readaholic tendencies.
She grew up
surrounded by Pennsylvania’s beautiful Allegheny Mountains. Then lived for ten years among the majestic Wasatch Mountains. She is currently experiencing mountain-withdrawal while living in Kansas with her husband and four angels-in-training. She enjoys reading, writing, dancing & singing in the kitchen, and the occasional long bubble bath to relax from the everyday stress of being “Mommy.”

“Be careful
what you wish for . . .
Delphine Baudry wished to be a best-selling author, and now instead of celebrating and jumping into her next novel, she’s frozen with fear. What if she turns out to be a one-hit-wonder? What if all her new fans hate the next book? To top it all off, she can’t even discuss the situation with her favorite brainstorming partner, her mother, who is losing her memory to Alzheimer’s. Taking a cue from some teens tossing Euros into a fountain, Delphine gives into some whimsy and wishes for her next book plot.
Jean-Paul Chassériau wished to start an online marketing company in La Rochelle. Now the real work begins. Feeling pressure to live up to his father’s name in
traditional marketing and far enough away to be out of his shadow, he has a
million ideas but no clients. When he finds a funky old Franc lodged between
cobblestones near a fountain, there was only one thing to do. Make a wish.
When their coins collide, Delphine and Jean-Paul’s wishes become intertwined, changing the course of their futures and teaching them that wishes are sometimes fulfilled in unexpected ways.”

“So, did I ruin
your wish?” Delphine asked.
Jean-Paul smiled.
She liked to jump right to the point, no tiptoeing around. “No, not at all.
I’ve never seen two coins collide like that.”
“Ah, but just
because you haven’t seen it, doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. Statistically,
anyway,” Delphine said, picking up the cup and saucer.
“I’m willing to
admit the probability is non-zero, but I can’t imagine it would be very high,”
Jean-Paul shot back, interested to see her response to his geeky comment.
“Tell me,”
Delphine said, leaning forward, intrigue glinting in her eyes. “How many coins
have you seen thrown into that fountain?”
He folded his arms
and brought up one finger to tap his chin, going for a deep-in-thought pose.
“You’re right. Maybe we should perform an experiment. How about we meet here
again on Thursday?”
His pulse sped up,
wondering if she’d accept his invitation.
