Guest Post: Juli D. Revezzo — “Changeling’s Crown”

This will be the first of two consecutive guest posts from fellow authors.  One of the (many) wonderful aspects of the WordPress community is the way we as bloggers can share our words, ideas, and inspirations on one another’s sites, a kind of creative cross-pollination that enriches the digital landscape.  I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to share guest posts and interviews on other blogs over the past eighteen months.  Likewise, it is always fun to feature other writers on The Eye-Dancers blog.

Last summer, just over a year ago to the day, Juli D. Revezzo authored a guest post on The Eye-Dancers blog about her Antique Magic series.  And now, here we are again in high summer, and I am once again privileged to have Juli return to talk a little bit about her new novel, Changeling’s Crown.

Without any further delay from me, please welcome Juli!

“What I learned writing a fun fantasy love story”

by

Juli D. Revezzo

 

Michael invited me here to talk about my newly released upper YA paranormal romance, Changeling’s Crown. For this novel, I decided to set the story on a horse ranch. Growing up my parents bought a house not far from a horse ranch—or at least the owner of that specific property owned horses. Still, I never paid much attention to the ins and outs of their property. I just oohed and ahhed over the lovely horses whenever we would pass.

Yes, I admit to doing that even still. I’m such a girl, I know. 😉

When the idea hit me to write what would become Changeling’s Crown, I decided to set it on an even bigger, truer horse ranch than the one I grew up near.

Now, truth to tell, I know next to nothing about horses or running a ranch so, yes, much research ensued. We have one nearby us and so I trotted down and observed for a while. One thing I learned is that sometimes, the owners put masks on the horses to keep flies out of their eyes. Another is that horses are much bigger than I realized they might be. This will tell you how short I am, but I could’ve walked under one of the stallions! I didn’t expect that. I’d never seen that of the horses down the way from me, (except for their size) so it surprised me. Yes, writing can teach you things, who knew? 😉

How about you, folks? Did you ever learn something from a book, or a school assignment that you never expected to?

 

Would you be interested to know a little more about the resulting book, Changeling’s Crown? Here’s the blurb:
When Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again. After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself . . . but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.

But why?

Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.

Briak has had his eye on Ianthe for a very, very long time, but he’s been waiting for just the right moment to make his move. Despite the fact all hell’s about to break loose on his watch, he can’t resist the opportunity to insert himself into her earthly assignment. Can he convince Ianthe of her true calling and thereby win her heart? Or will his subterfuge ultimately cost him her love?
