As promised in my last post, I will be sharing some info on my upcoming book, Her Knowing, up until it’s release on June 1, 2015. So today’s post will give you an idea on what the book is about.
First off though, I will tell you what it isn’t. Her Knowing is not a book for young children. It contains elements of sexuality ranging from the subtle to the explicit. It also contains romance, but is not a romance novel. Part of it takes place in a mythical world, but it is not an epic fantasy. In fact, I’m not even sure if it fits into one genre that well. It took me five years to write it, so it is a stubborn book after all.
So with all that out of the way, you must be wondering what exactly is this book about. Well, it is a story about growth, the many faces of love, and finding one’s own way. It begins with Sarah Jempser, an eighteen year old dreamer and aspiring writer, going off to university for the first time with her best friend. It follows her as she faces the trials of transitioning from adolescence to young adulthood. Along the way she meets Chris, a mysterious and wealthy graduate student, who quickly takes a very passionate interest in her. Of course all of this happens alongside her finding out that she is a keeper. One of the four future guardians of the elemental realms in a place called Luxora, the center of the Etherworlds.
While Sarah’s story has some supernatural elements to it, the core story is one most people can relate to. The transition in life from one phase to another, in which we are just trying to figure it all out. With that said, what transition in life did you find the hardest to endure?
