Today, I have Jemima Pett on the blog for the release of her latest installment of the Princelings of the East series, Chronicles of Marsh. That's book nine in the series for those of you keeping track. I'm not sure I could go that long in a book series. I struggle with writing sequels!
Anyways, Jemima is sharing an excerpt from Chronicles of Marsh.
In the morning, Fred and Kira woke, went to check on Jasmine, and found her bed empty and cold.
The Princelings of the East are now King Fred and Prince Engineer George. Gone are the years of innocence when they travelled for adventure and uncovered time tunnels and pirate plots.
Now Fred, assisted by his queen, Kira, has the responsibility for his people, his lands, and for persuading the lords and kings of the Realms to act together for the common good.
George just has to work on his inventions, always thinking of a final goal: to fulfil the promises made to Lord Mariusz so long ago.
Neither has an easy task.
Fred decides to write this history of his reign. He starts with the joy of his inheritance, but quickly shows us that developments in the Realms are not leading towards a settled and happy future.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jemima wrote her first book when she was eight years old. She was heavily into world-building, drawing maps, building railway timetables, and dreaming of being a champion show-jumper, until schoolwork got in the way. Then she went down the science path, reading all the scifi in her local library, writing papers, manuals and reports, as well as editing the newsletters for her sports clubs. She changed career aged 42, to a new and exciting cross-cutting science called environmental technology, and worked in energy efficiency and climate change. A few years on, she was writing stories based on the personalities of her first pets, guinea pigs named Fred and George, after the Weasley twins. Then her other guinea pigs demanded starring roles….
Jemima Pett lives in Norfolk, UK, and first started writing fantasy adventures for young teens over ten years ago.
