Do you know about Noblebright Fantasy?
Noblebright Fantasy refers to stories in which the main motivation of the characters is an altruistic proposal or quest, and the world in which they live upholds hope and the possibility of better. Noblebright characters choose to act with kindness and honor, are rewarded for their good qualities, and their world, although not perfect, is beautiful and valuable.
Brand new Epic/High Fantasy collection “Heroes and Swords”, brings you a selection of Noblebright stories with strong heroes and magical worlds that will take you back to the times of classic fantasy. Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll find!
Noblebright Fantasy Book: The River’s Bane.
In the medieval Northlands, a dangerous family seeks power.
Children’s rhymes hint at what’s to come, but no one recognizes the danger at hand.
Astrid doesn’t know she holds the key to this power.
She’s just a blacksmith who makes swords for dragonslayers.
But Astrid has a dark secret …
A dragon once chewed her up and spit her out.
She hides the old scars covering her body through shapeshifting.
But the time for hiding is over.
Many years ago – in the days before sexual harassment laws were in place and companies actually complied with them – I was propositioned by an executive at my day job at that time. I was mortified because he was a married man who had two young children. Because he was at the top of the hierarchy and I was at the bottom, I had no real options except to put up a strong boundary and refuse his advances. I knew women who spoke up were blamed, and experienced this myself a few years later when a more serious incident happened.
So I poured my feelings and experience into an epic fantasy story about Astrid, a female blacksmith whose dragonslayer sweetheart goes missing. When a new dragonslayer from another land propositions her and threatens to leave her entire village at risk to attacks by dragons if she doesn’t do what he says, Astrid must figure out how to protect her people and herself. This story expanded into a series, where Astrid faces greater threats against the people in her village, her country, and ultimately the entire world.
