This morning, Silver James wrote a post about the work it takes beyond the inspiration, and thereby inspired me to help her out.
Now, before I start, I don't really know Silver. She's just one of the gals I've seen around the net - especially at Jennifer Lyon's blog. I haven't even read her debut novel: Faerie Fate - except for a quick snippet or two.
And I'm still going to suggest you buy her book. It's already on my To-Buy list - just based on the product description and my contact with her in the blogosphere.
Product Description (kiped off Amazon, of course): If you could go back, do it over again, would you take a chance to find true love? What if you had no choice? On her fiftieth birthday, the faerie send Rebecca Miller a thousand years into the past to find her happily ever after with Ciaran MacDermot, Chief of Clann MacDermot, the last Fenian warrior in his line. In the twenty-first century, Becca is old enough to be Ciaran's mother. In the tenth, she's young enough to be his bride. The fae forgot to mention one slight stipulation. The lovers must be bound before the Festival of Light, or Becca will forever disappear into Tir Nan Óg, the faerie Land of the Ever Young. Will they discover the binding words before time runs out and they're torn apart forever? Or will their eternal love defeat their Faerie Fate? Without the words, history is doomed to repeat itself.
As for my contact with her, it's only been peripheral, but she seems like a good person, a fun gal, and a hard-working writer. I can't wait to read her book. I mean, time-travel plus fae plus hot Clansman? It's got all the right elements. How could I not want this book?
And how can I not pitch it? So, if you've got some extra money in your book budget, give Silver a try. I'm betting we won't be disappointed. =o)
