What if you could fly?
Rhonda has always heard stories of the Skyborn, humans that could fly unaided through the power of thought. She thought they were just stories.
Older, Rhonda has almost given up belief in flying people. When a strange blonde girl shows up in an old woman’s window, Rhonda learns that flyers aren’t just legend.
And she wants to be one.
Rhonda is my upcoming young adult fantasy novel. I’ve been working on it over a year and it’s almost ready. I’m very excited and I hope you’ll join me once it’s made available.
What Kind of Novel is Rhonda?
Rhonda is a young adult fantasy/adventure/romance novel.
I’ve always wished novelists writing a Hero’s Journey would focus on the romance just a tad more. Not too much more, but enough to push it into a more important part of the novel. Even if they’re out saving the world, people still have and want relationships. Buffy: The Vampire Slayer epitomized this for me.
What Kind of Reader Will Enjoy Rhonda?
Let’s not go over things like a strong narrative or strong characters. Everyone likes those things in fiction. They’re not always present in some fiction, but in the good books, it’s always there.
That said, if you like fantasy that forces characters to solve their own problems where the magic may just make it more complicated rather than easier, where the romance is brought more into the limelight while still playing friendly with a strong plot, where the character’s choices are hard and the results are sometimes hard to live with, then you might enjoy my work.
If you like Harry Potter, Buffy, or Avatar: The Last Airbender, I’d say that you’re exactly the kind of person I’d love to read my book.
