How to celebrate Spoonmas Eve on August 18th?

By pre-ordering Taliaschild, the long-awaited sequel to Taliasman!

Taliaschild is a retelling of the fairy tale The Snow Queen, with a few nods to Frozen. I’ll show a short snippet this weekend. In the meantime, here is the blurb. Look for details about the festivities to come!

Taliaschild blurb:

Six years after the mysterious talisman brought Queen Vina to Talia, it chooses a new owner in Sonna, a child of the streets. Deserted by her amputee father and beaten by her mother for failing to bring home scraps for the family to eat, Sonna runs into the self-assured Kira, daughter and heir to Vina’s queendom.

Weary of endless rules and duties involved in training to become the future queen, Kira leaps at the chance to escape with a new friend. She places the priceless talisman around Sonna’s neck, but neither can remove the jewelry.

Alarmed at losing the talisman’s protection, Vina and Talia take drastic steps to protect the princess. In the process, the entire earth descends into chaos.

Five years later, nineteen-year-old Sonna forages for two-day-old fish heads while dodging street pimps. The talisman leads her to the mysterious Nicodemus, who offers one command:

Go to Kira. She needs you.

Baffled, Sonna embarks on her journey. What can a pauper offer a spoiled princess? Will the street girl end up surprising them all?

Taliasman is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance, iBooks, and all major ebook retailers. Plus, you can listen to a free sample of the audiobook here!

Born to a destitute woodworker who wanted a son to carry on the family business, Talia grew up with one phrase on her lips: “If I had been born a boy.” If she had been born a boy, she would have been cherished, supported, and launched into the world with her father’s legacy. As only a worthless girl, she toils all day long to earn her handful of inferior grain.

Far away in the heavenly palace, Queen Vina receives a mysterious coin necklace from Nicodemus, teller of stories. Compelled by the throbbing heartbeat, she scours the earth to come across Talia, enslaved to a family who never wanted her. Rather than admit her motives, Vina purchases the girl with a sack full of gold. Furious, betrayed, and homesick, Talia endeavors to share her misery with the entire palace. Vina, afraid to confess her love, allows herself to become trapped in the role of brutal slave owner.

Talia, bred to expect nothing but misery, faces the first choice of her life. Will she accept love, even if it comes from an unlikely source? Or will she reject the one who offers her everything?

    Hi Ana, congratulations on your upcoming release! I am so excited about it and can’t wait to start reading. Somehow it has all the cool ingredients to love it -> Snow Queen and Frozen, and in addition to that I am pretty sure the retold story will be soo different that we will see the fairy tale motif, but it will be a cool Ana Vitsky original. 🙂 If it were not forbidden I’d be tempted to bet on that. 😀

    hugs
