New Fantasy Novel Chronicles Fate of Fawcetta

SAN JOSE, Calif. – A prophecy that foretells the coming of a great evil will send the great empire of Adorya and its royal family into a whirlwind of betrayal and chaos in Dalian Artanian’s engaging new science-fiction novel, Fawcetta: Voices and Echoes of the Coliseum Volume I (published by AuthorHouse).


Fawcetta begins in the Redwood forest of Artyrius, where three friends, the Guardian Kaina; Princess Nerysta; and Prince Denucian are playing a game. But back in the palace of Adorya, Nerysta and Denucian’s father, Kalzein, is preparing for the worst. In light of a prophecy that foretells of a great evil that will swallow all love in the world and leave it a barren and desolate place, the emperor is making plans to protect the greatest asset of the planet Fawcetta – the Penakod. His family is unconcerned, only knowing centuries of peace, and chooses to delight over plans for Princess Nerysta’s birthday the following day.


Apart from the royal family, Kaina is interrupted by an apparition appearing within a waterfall. From the apparition a voice calls out, and Kaina realizes that it is the Voice, an almost godlike figure in Fawcetta, warning her of a dark storm approaching the planet. The Voice also reveals that she is a part of the planet’s salvation, a part of the myth that states that the seventh Gate of Penakod, and the world’s salvation, can only be opened by two soulmates willing to sacrifice their love. Unbelieving, Kaina is bewildered when the Voice presents her with a Boezein, a majestically powerful weapon that can only be bestowed upon a Guardian if they pass the trials of the coliseum. From this point on, Kaina must accept her fate and seek out her partner.


Despite the surety of the darkness’ descent, Nerysta must still face the rite of passage of every royal Guardian: to pass the trials of the coliseum. But the latter stages of the trials become unexpectedly difficult and dangerous until Bavius, the captain of the Alanian guards, is sent in to rescue her. Bavius succeeds but there are more calamitous events that will soon befall Adorya, turning them against each other at the hands of an unknown force. When the evil Anakhi and their queen launch an attack against Adorya, it will take every Guardian and the military to defend the empire. In the midst of this chaos, a family comes undone and the Guardian Kaina must make a choice concerning her soulmate should she ever hope to free the world and people she loves from darkness.


Epic journeys, battles and profound tales of love and loss abound in Fawcetta, a world of mystery, drama, deceit and romance sure to be entertaining for all readers.

Unfaireness for self-published author

I wanted to have someone to review my book. I was searching for days.

I understand I have to pay someone to get my reviews. That is not my point.

My point today is…Some sites say that if you are self-published author, please do not waste your time and money to send us for review copy. We do not have time for those titles. We ONLY review published author by publisher.

What is this? What is the difference?

You are saying that self-published author’s book is not worth for them? What if they have better story than those people? Can you think about any possibilities?

I was annoyed by them. Yes, I am self-published author…That does  not mean my story is not worth selling than those author with publisher.

I was very shocked..but , hey, if you can success, then you can tell them…YES, I am SELF-PUBLISHED AUTHOR.

Waiting for Press release

I am waiting for a press release to come.  Why press release is important?

Well, you can get a lot of attention from media. There are couple of sites that submit press release for free.

I think it is PRAvenue. I will send out my press release through them and let you know the results.

If you have to pay some of the money, PRWeb is the best one. Reason why I am saying is that I searched many places…and read so many people’s blog.

PRWeb is the best so far.

While I am waiting for my press release to be written, I decided to promote my book by Twitter.

You can promote your book without  breaking your bank.  I know, having money makes it  a lot easier, but you can still work on it without your money.

That is my goal until I get my press release.

If you are self-publisher and working on your book, let me know your tactics!

I will be more than happy to try new way of promoting the book.
