"I want to be read. I want to be valued. That is perhaps the only shot at immortality a human being can have." - Anne Rice
Read. Think. Write. Create.
Everyone needs encouraging and a place to express their thoughts and opinions. Putting yourself out there can be a scary thing but sometimes your work, whether it is a painting, music, book or other creative material, can act as a light for those stumbling around in the dark and can be an inspiration to others. Here at The Musings of a 20-something Author, the goal is to facilitate conversation, inspire those who need to be struck, and brighten a sometimes dark world. With posts on life issues, school and education, book reviews, and things related to writing and the arts, let's see what conversation and debate we can drum up. Please remember, all posts are subjective and are the thoughts of the writer and are not meant to be offensive to anyone.

Warrior princess Raynin is the most powerful person in the Guardian Realm, despite having unstable powers. She’s also the most loyal. Her best friend, Prince Riley, is second. After Raynin is named heir to the coveted Crown of Amiriel, the most powerful object in all the realms, the two of them are forced to flee the kingdom and seek refuge in another realm to avoid death. Soon, that realm is thrust into an unexpected war against a merciless king, for harboring the teens, forcing Raynin and Riley to make new alliances and learn to trust and rely on others. With the help of their friends, Raynin and Riley must fight to stay alive while trying to get a grasp on their powers and find the Crown before anyone else. Only problem is, the king has sent more than one assassin after them and the Crown, making staying alive that much harder.

Your favorite Author and Contrarian here with the first blog post, and I thought it best to post about my debut novel, The Crown of Amiriel, and what it's been like after self-publishing. For those of you who do not know me, I have been writing this book on and off for the past 7 years. I started working on it my Senior year of high school at 17 and finished a little before I turned 24.
