Shahira and the Flying Elfs Blog Tour
Today I'm featuring Anna Del C Dye on my blog. She has a new book out called,
SHAHIRA AND THE FLYING ELFS (her spelling). Anna has a way of weaving her tales into rich tapestries full of action.
After meeting Rodney, a native of Idaho, in her hometown, two years later, Anna traveled to Utah on Christmas Eve and married him two weeks later. Their love story, WHY HIM? was published by Covenant in the book entitled Tender Mercies. Anna and Rodney reside in Taylorsville, Utah and are the parents of three princes and a princess. They love to camp, canoe, explore ruins and have sword fights.
Heidi, it’s a pleasure to visit your blog this week. I would like to announce that all those who post a comment will be entered to the contest for a PDF of “SHAHIRA & THE FLYING ELFS” Just leave an email address to be entered. There will be one free PDF for every stop of this book blog tour.
Shahira the new epic tale by Anna del C. Dye hit the market this week.
Anna, of all the things you can write about, why Elfs?
It is what I am passionate about. All authors who write what they love do a better job than those who don't. It just flows from our veins. :)
Does that mean you'll be writing about elfs all your life?
No, the elf series has seven books and we are on book number six. Next year I will close this journey with my elfs and move to strict YA romance.
When you referred to your YA books the Elf Series as stand alone, what do you mean?
I mean that all the books in this series are stand alone. This includes The Silent Warrior Trilogy. All stories start in the first page and end in the epilogue. The only difference with the trilogy is that we follow the main characters throughout the three books, just at different special times in their lives.
Are all your books family friendly?
One thing is for sure, you can count that all my books are clean, easy to read, and good entertainment for the whole family. They teach good morals in an non-intrusive way.
What makes your elf stories different from other elf books?
In all my books you will find the good elf race portrayed with precise details and their attributes and flaws fully developed. They are the epitome of love and truthfulness. Their respect and love for their women is what attracts most readers to my stories. And the rest come for the hunger for the truthful ways that is portrayed there... Truthfulness is a feeling no many have in real life.
Are your books romance?
I do not consider them romance, although they have romance in them. You will also find rich battles scenes without the gory details, mystery, adventure, intrigue, courage, and lots of dialogue.
"SHAHIRA & the FLYING ELFS" is book number six in my elf series now available everywhere books are sold.
Here is a teaser:
Flying takes you to new heights, still you don't see if you try not
Shahira is a she-eagle and lives with her father, mother, and baby brother. Her dream is to find a stripling eagle for her mate. But mating is a ritual that happens in the sky and she cannot fly. She keeps telling herself that soon she will be able to, but every time she tries she falls.
The character causing all the problems in this tale is Artoris, an almost wizard that suffers from schizophrenia. He hears and sees people talking to him all the time. This makes him very dangerous, especially as he thinks his brother, the head of the Wizarding School, is against him. A crazy wizard, on his own, pursued by his personal demons, and on a path of revenge, makes for interesting suspense.
Lets not forget Llorradinn. He is the Elf who finds love in Shahira’s nest and who is willing to do anything for her. He even gets back on a eagle after one of the wise birds tries to kill him by dropping him from a league up in the sky.
Shahira & the Flying Elfs is a YA book of high fantasy. Written in the genre and inspired by Tolkien, you will find this tale clean and wholesome for the whole family.
Praise for Shahira & the Flying Elfs
Brilliant writer with an amazing story of intrigue, courage, adventure, and hope. It will keep you turning pages until the very end. I really enjoyed it.
