Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Keeper of Reign by Emma Right

Young Adult Fantasy
Date Published: 5/19/2013

Books written in blood. Most are lost, their Keepers with them. A curse that befell a people. A Kingdom with no King. Life couldn’t get more harrowing for the Elfies, a blend of Elves and Fairies. Or for sixteen-year-old Jules Blaze. Or could it? 

For Jules, the heir of a Keeper, no less, suspects his family hides a forgotten secret. It was bad enough that his people, the Elfies of Reign, triggered a curse which reduced the entire inhabitants to a mere inch centuries ago. All because of one Keeper who failed his purpose. Even the King’s Ancient Books, did not help ward off that anathema. 

Now, Gehzurolle, the evil lord, and his armies of Scorpents, seem bent on destroying Jules and his family. Why? Gehzurolle’s agents hunt for Jules as he journeys into enemy land to find the truth. Truth that could save him and his family, and possibly even reverse the age-long curse. Provided Jules doesn't get himself killed first.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Yes, and a hobby, a passion and an outlet.
#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Trying to get at least a ten minute block of time without being interrupted by some comment, or 'Help! Mommy! The cat's scaring the dog!" or "Where is…" or a loud crash coming from somewhere, or a fight between the cat and the bunny…the list continues.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
My editor, Dr. Dennis Hensley, helped me in the editing process the most. Also the books on the craft of writing, and storytelling from Writer's Digest were instrumental in helping me improve.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
Book 2 of the Reign Fantasy series is already in the works. And yes, I did write Keeper of Reign as a first book, no question about it. And yes, I did set it up to have a cliff hanger ending--that's how they do it on TV, right? Why, because the story couldn't be told in one book. Read Lord of the Rings? When LOTR first came out it was one huge volume, but the publishers thought it was too large a read, so JRR Tolkein broke it up into three books. Also, I have a suspense contemporary YA (mixed with mystery) coming up at the end of the year. That too will be part of a series.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
Reading all the time. Any snatches of time I can get a hold of. I used to read in the bathroom growing up, and that drove my mother crazy!

DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet:
Keeper of Reign, for Narnia and Hobbit lovers, with an Elfish twist, promises to encourage young readers they can make a difference.
