This tour stop is ever so slightly different. Make Believe is an anthology featuring stories influenced by its cover image, however, I am a part of Terri Rochenski’s tour and as such am going to be promoting the anthology for her. Read on for my thoughts!
Make Believe – Fantasy Anthology
Publication date: 3rd December 2012
Sacrificial Oath by Terri Rochenski
An impetuous act unwittingly makes Alesuela the fulfillment of the Sovereign’s Blood Oath to their Goddess. In five days, she’ll be forced to make the greatest choice of her life: become the virginal sacrifice already promised, or force the man she loves most to die in her place.
With an impossible choice in front of her, she searches for ways to undo the oath, and in her quest, finds not everything in her life is as she expects.
Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with the fantasy genre.
Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her two young daughters allow. When not potty training or kissing boo-boos, she can be found on her back patio in the boondocks of New Hampshire, book or pencil in hand.
[Review] Sacrificial Oath by Terri Rochenski
The Make Believe anthology focuses on stories inspired by the cover art, the catch: no Red Riding Hood tales, and the story must have a happy ending. A dozen different scenarios pop into my head just from a glance so you can imagine the variety included within the anthology.
Terri Rochenski’s publishing debut is within Make Believe. You’ve seen the blurb above so I don’t need to go on about the story itself which played out well, though the ending felt a little like a deus ex machina however it was a nice ending so I won’t complain, especially when you consider Terri’s talented writing. I very much can’t wait for her newly contracted fantasy series with J. Taylor Publishing in 2013! This little taster for Terri Rochenski has convinced me of her worth as a fantasy author. Watch out for this one, guys.
This giveaway is hosted by Terri but you can enter on Once Upon A Time.
