Virtual Book Tour + #Giveaway: The Chronicles of Antecede: Lost and Found by C.M. Sage @GoddessFish


The Chronicles of Antecede: Lost and Found

by C.M. Sage

GENRE: Fantasy


BLURB:


Sometimes things are lost for a very long time...and then they are found.


Take Gracie for example, a woman who lost everything, her life, her family, even her name, but now she is a Cathalian warrior of Antecede blessed with powers, which aren't yet fully realized. Her elder and nemesis, Donavan, finally granted the former professor an opportunity to train a new warrior. Her joy turns to shock when she meets her great, great, great, great grandson, Henry, accompanied by his wisecracking best friend, Milo. Henry recognizes his long dead ancestor right away, and it doesn't take the Cathalians long to realize that this meeting was no accident.


Gracie and the warriors of Antecede soon discover that they aren't the only ones laying a claim on their new charges. Menacing enemies from the South and their hired mercenary assassin, Revilan, the Bowman, have also taken an interest. Come along with Gracie, Donavan, and their fellow warriors on a perilous quest to protect all that is good and right from the evil that threatens it, and along the way discover what else was lost.

Excerpt:

Donovan looked her up and down with an expression that might have been disdain, but more intense and personal. His examination puzzled her, but again being singled out by him wasn’t unusual. He said nothing at all for quite some time. It took all of Gracie’s strength not to fidget under his stare. At last the force that was Donovan burst wide open, and his fire rained down on her head.

How dare you act without any care for yourself or your brothers and sisters-in-arms and needlessly put yourself in harm’s way? Everything went exactly according to plan before you put yourself within that monster’s reach. Why? Do you realize how close his arrow came to you? And how close he came to breaking your neck? Do you have a death wish? You want to spend eternity on that bow? Join Emmie and Shinto? Is that your desire? You are still the same senseless, selfish woman who stepped onto the pier the day I met you. You have learned nothing.” Donovan closed the gap between them and was now yelling an inch from her face. He grabbed her shoulders and shook her like a rag doll, but Gracie was no longer his whipping girl.

She wrenched herself out of his grasp and slapped him hard across the face. She held nothing back, and the stinging blow left a small but mighty handprint on his cheek. The entire world grew quiet, as if holding its breath, waiting for something dire to happen. Her seven protectors, who had remained close to their mistress during the battle, surrounded her, growling, ready to come to her defense if her elder so much as touched her again.


 

Interview with C.M. Sage:

Do you ever wish you were someone else? Who?

Not really. Sometimes when I’m a little mean, usually in my head, I wish I could be a better person, but generally I’m pretty happy being me. I have a plaque in my office that says, “I love the person I’ve become because I fought to become her.” That really resonates with me.

What did you do on your last birthday?

My husband took me out to a tapas restaurant. I lived in Spain when I was young, and I often crave that kind of food. After that we had cake and ice cream and opened presents with my sister and niece on FaceTime. It was wonderful.

What part of the writing process do you dread?

The editing process…it goes on and on and on.

Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?

Yes, that does happen to me every so often. When it does, I usually stop writing linearly and try and work on another chapter. When it’s really bad, I’ll work on something else…poetry or short stories. Sometimes I read, but never the same genre because I don’t want that to subconsciously influence me.

Tell us about your latest release.

Lost and Found is a fantasy, adventure, romance novel. It is the first in what I envision to be a three-book series. Our heroine is Gracie, who has landed in Antecede, the bridge land between “Heaven” and “Hell.” She is one of 20,000 Cathalians, including her elder and nemesis, Donovan, who defend the boundary of “Heaven” from the darkness in the South. The story centers around what happens when her great, great, great, great grandson and his friend Milo show up as Cathalian trainees and the adventure that follows.
