When You Believe in Fantasy Worlds

There is something exhilarating about happening upon a blip of a fantasy world in everyday life. For a fraction of a second you believe you have actually been transported to an alternative universe, or the secret world was there all along, and miraculously, you managed to get a glimpse of it. Are talented authors taking everyday experiences and making you believe it’s special? Or is life imitating art? I don’t know the answer to that, but I love stepping into my favorite fantasy realm, and I try to do it as often as possible.

I looked for Percy Jackson in front of the St. Louis Arch!

I fought the mist at the Lotus Room so I could get back to Camp Half-Blood!

 

Finding fantasy in everyday life is a thrill. That’s what I hope to create in my next series (after)life lessons! Check the first beta review I received from an 8th grader!  Comment if you would like to be a beta reader!

Looking for #Beta #Readers for My New #YoungAdult #Fantasy #Book #Series …

Hi Friends! I’m looking for beta readers to give feedback on my latest young adult, fantasy novel. The series is called (after) life lessons, and book #1 is titled The Light of Supremazia. It is written like a classic hero’s journey – just like the Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, or Lord of the Rings adventures.
Here’s the catchy blurb: Think it’s difficult to get into Harvard? Try Vita Post Mortem Academy, where John F. Kennedy teaches social studies and Albert Einstein gives physics lectures. Of course, there’s no hope getting in if you can’t see ghosts. …not a problem for Juliandra Winklevoss.
It’s got teen drama, an evil villain, and famous dead people teaching high school subjects. You know you want to read it!
You can read it for fun and just tell me “cool” or you can give me lots of constructive feedback. I’m open! Message me if you are interested!
