Before I welcome Lea to join us, I must say that if you haven’t yet met her, you’ve been missing out. Lea is one incredible woman. Lea is everything to everyone who knows her. From the members of the Muse Online Conference to the members of her many critique groups she is known as the Mother Hen. So when I say you’re in for a treat today I truly mean it.
I would now like to introduce to you Lea Schizas who never fails to surprise those who know her.
Welcome Lea, it is my pleasure to have you visit today.
Hello Gloria and thank you for hosting my book tour today.
The Rock of Realm, aimed for anyone between 8 and 208, was extremely fun to write. This was one of those books where the characters whispered, yelled, screamed, and ordered me around. they dictated where they wanted to go, what they wanted to say, and what they wanted to do. Surprisingly, I came out of this unharmed.
“Um, what are you trying to say?”
Why, hello Pops. Didn’t know you were going to be here, as well.
“Well, duh, you thought you were going to talk about us and we’d just leave you be?”
Gloria, I’d like to introduce you to Pops, the squirrel, my a la Billy Crystal character.
“I’m real…not a character.”
Anyway…Pops is Butch’s pet. Butch is…
“An overgrown, ordering German Shepherd who I’m about fed…um, Lea, is Butch here today?”
Pops also likes to shoot his mouth and gets into trouble at times.
“I’m loving this. Finally someone tunes into this nut’s antics.”
And this is Jinx, the six-legged hamster who is our fearless guide throughout Rock Kingdom. And Pops, no comments, please.
The story finds Alexandra Stone, the main character, and her best friend, Sarah Breckinridge, reciting a chant taught to them by their English teacher. Suddenly, the two of them, along with Butch and Pops, find themselves in this whole new world.
“Only to outsiders.”
“Well, he criticized my home.”
Alexandra Stone discovers a secret her parents kept from her…that she is the Princess to Rock Kingdom. This hurts and angers her but she pulls herself together in order to find a way to get her friends back to their world.
“I love Alex.”
Gloria, that’s the first time these two have agreed on anything. Getting back to Rock Kingdom, the only safe haven where Alex can recite the chant that brought them there in the first place is in the Majesty Bedroom. But in order to get there they will have to face several dangerous obstacles and adventures.
“Please, stop, I don’t want to remember them.”
The Braks, the villain’s soldiers, are hot on their trail which adds more suspense, more adventure, and a whole lot of excitement as the story unfolds with plenty twists and turns…
“To make you toss your guts.”
Well, not exactly, but enough to get your stomach all in knots. This is the first book in the series which introduces most of the characters and part of the landscape of Rock Kingdom. In each book, which presently I’ve all ready mapped out until Book 4, will bring you new areas within Rock Kingdom, new characters to shed light on some of the villains and the reasons for their behavior, and the reasons why Alex’s parents kept this world from her.
“There’s a book 2? Why didn’t you tell me?”
“Cos you’re not important. I knew.”
I want to thank you, Gloria, for having me here today and looking forward to answering and reading comments from your readers. One lucky reader will win my Rock of Realm ebook just by leaving me a comment or question.
I’ll take the boys now out of your blog.
“It was my pleasure meeting you, my dear lady.”
“Oh stop the suck up.”
And there you have it. Lea, thanks for this wonderful description of your book the Rock of Realm. Better find time to read the rest of it, sounds exciting. Well now it’s time to get your comments posted for a chance to win this wonderful ebook from Lea and almost time for me to leave for work.
