I can’t believe this!
I sound like a child being fascinated with everything. A lot of my posts are like “Wow!” “I can’t believe!” and “OMG!”. But to be honest, I never expected to get any kind of comment, award or ARC. But it has happened and I don’t feel like I’m an experienced enough blogger to receive all this. So thank you to everyone who is making blogging such an incredible journey! And today I want to thank Royal James Publishing especially, since they gave me the opportunity to be part of this cover reveal. Thank you.
A Space Between Worlds Vol.1: Conception
Pre-sale Date: September 19, 2016 | Blog Tour: October 9-16, 2016
Release date: October 17, 2016
The genre is Speculative Fiction, Meerkat. Though it may not be the most traditional genre-fiction, Speculative Fiction the blending of those different genres; for example, literary fiction, philosophy, magical realism along with elements of Folklore and Fantasy would be the best to describe the A Space Between Worlds series as a whole. I hope that answered your question.
– J.D. Woodson
Songstress Shanti’s final performance is no different than any other. Gazing into the mirror, the Songstress laments her faceless curse. To hide her unsightliness, she dons a beautiful mask. She knows she doesn’t belong in the darkness. Her desire is to live in a world of eternal light, to be seen for who she truly is.
An enigmatic man who calls himself Avidia beckons Shanti, claiming to know how to conceive the world of light sleeping inside of her, and escape her current world of darkness, Cauraaha. Avidia poses the question that will be the key to her desire, as well as an unresolved pain:
“What is your first memory?”
Reno, a gentle florist, has his own stigma, a translucent coil of thorns wrapped around his arm, draining him of life at the utterance of the word “Promise”. Hidden away in his heart is the knowledge of a past he doesn’t wish to face, one that connects to Shanti, Avidia, and her curse.
A dual narrative of introspection and self-discovery, A Space Between Worlds eloquently questions the truths of life and death, timeless bonds, and regret through lyrical imagination, philosophy, surrealism, and a journey through the unconscious mind.
