Helping Out Debut Author Silver James

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)


  1. It does look like a great book. Thanks for the suggestion!

  2. Whats really sad is that you had to say you don't know her. *rolling my eyes* I know why you did it, and it was smart of you to do, but it's dumb that we have to do that now. It's part of the reason I haven't given a review of Monica's book, because we talk too much in emails and we've met in person.

    Anyway, thanks for the suggestion =)

  3. LOL... It's not like that. I really don't know Silver. I just appreciate some of the comments she's made and she sounds like a good person. If I knew her, I'd say so - new govt regs or not.

    Geez, you email with Monica? And you've met her? Okay, now I'm jealous.

  4. Oh haha no, I know you dont know her. Sorry it sounded that way. I went off on one of my usual tangents (go figure). I just meant that it's sad that we have to say that, whether we know them or not.

    Haha yes, I do. It's been a little quiet recently, though. *shrugs* I met her in Washington last summer.

  5. B.E....Thank you. I'm almost speechless by how thoughtful this is. Wow.

    Okay, putting on the game face (and voice) now! I hope you enjoy FAERIE FATE when you get the chance to read it. This "community" we reside in, however virtual it is, remains real and supportive. When your time comes, and it will, I'll be there cheering you on. :D

  6. Hi B.E., this is a wonderful thing you did for my friend Silver. I only met her once, and she is awesome, genuine, funny, nice, just an all around good person to hang out with.

    Faerie Fate is a great read, and I think you will enjoy it. Ciaran and Becca are wonderful characters, and the secondary characters are no slouches either. Definitely read it is as soon as you can. See you around the blogosphere.

    Peace and love,
