Happy Book Birthday: ASHAMET, DESERT BORN by Terry Jackman

“Fascinating…very engaging!” — SFCrowsnest

Ashamet-Cover

A desert world. A warrior nation that worships its emperor as a god. But for Ashamet, its prince, a future filled with danger…

Ashamet is confident his swordsmanship, and his arranged marriage, will be enough to maintain the empire’s peace. But when a divine symbol magically appears on his arm, closely followed by an attempt on his life, he no longer knows who to trust. Worse, the strange attraction he feels toward a foreign slave could be another trap. As events unravel, too fast, Ashamet must find out if this innocent young male is a tool for his enemies–or the magic key to his survival.

“Ashamet, Desert-Born” is a debut adventure fantasy with an exotic Arabian-style setting and elements of same-sex romance.

//////////////////////////

“Headstrong was the least I knew they said about me. Unpredictable, a wicked sense of humour? Gods, I hoped so.”

A desert world. A population of 100 males to every female. And for Ashamet, its prince, a suddenly uncertain future…

All Ashamet wants is the warrior life he already has. But then a divine symbol appears on his arm, closely followed by an attempt on his life. Now nothing’s simple any longer, even less so when a new and very foreign slave seems shocked by both his new surroundings – and his master’s amorous attentions.

Could this innocent young male hold the key to Ashamet’s survival? And to his heart?

“Ashamet, Desert Born”, is a debut adventure fantasy with an exotic Arabian-style setting and strong elements of same-sex romance.

About the Author 

Terry Jackman is a mild-mannered married lady who teaches (though not in school) and lives in a pretty English village, complete with an ancient stone cross and a duckpond.

Well, that’s one version.

The other Terry may be a surprise to those who only know the first one. Apart from once being the most qualified professional picture framer in the world, and as such responsible for ten years’ worth of articles, guest appearances, seminars, study guides and exam papers, she is also the coordinator of all the British Science Fiction Association writers’ groups, called Orbits, is a freelance editor, and an assistant editor for Albedo One magazine in Ireland.

She wrote her first story in infant school, but only remembers because of the harrowing experience of having to read it out to the class. Maybe that’s why it took a considerable time and a lot of encouragement to get her to do anything like that again.

NEW RELEASE: “The Blackwell Family Secret: the Guardians of Sin” by Jonathan L Ferrara

Seven deadly sins have been unleashed, and the only one who can defeat them is the boy who set them free.

Read more in this exciting young adult debut with a Christian theme:

Cover

Nicholas Blackwell has no idea he is supposed to fulfill a destiny. All he knows is that he draws trouble like a magnet. Orphaned at seven when two demonic men killed his parents, he copes with the strict rules of his new home, St. Christopher’s academy, unaware that he has been the real target for the killers and that his guardian angel has saved him in the nick of time. And now, his problems are only beginning when a mysterious serpent lures him into the woods and tricks him into a demonic ritual that will unleash the Seven Deadly Sins to destroy the humankind. Nicholas has no choice but to correct his mistake–or die trying.

Aided by Amy, a shy but determined girl who seems to know more about his task than she should, Nicholas’s quest is to travel into the City of Demonio and defeat the Seven Guardians of Sin. To succeed, he must confront demons, monsters, and lost souls, learn the mysteries of the Chapel of Dreams, discover the true meaning of friendship and love, and face the darkest secret of all: the Blackwell Family Secret.

MEET THE AUTHOR: Jonathan L Ferrara

There were two things that have always really interested me, religion and fantasy. I’m fascinated by people’s belief systems, and how they make a relationship with God. I also love a good fantasy that can take me off to a far away land filled with heroes, terrors and fun. As a writer, I love to combine both of these worlds. This how I started writing The Blackwell Family Secret: the Guardians of Sin.
I grew up as a Catholic, going to church every Sunday, being an alter boy, taught to avoid sin. Even as a young boy I was interested in the Seven Deadly Sins. What I find to be even more interesting is that everyone in the world can relate to one of the Sins over the rest. I, myself have felt seduced by a particular sin during specific moments of my life and can easily relate to one of the Princes of Hell in this novel. I wrote this book as a way to give life, history and true meaning to the Seven infamous words: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride. Throughout this series you learn the origin of where the Seven Deadly Sins come from, who they are, and most of all…what they plan to do.
