My Merlin Awakening Short Blurb:

A young Merlin has woken and must manipulate a high school girl so he can wield Excalibur to stop a devastating natural disaster, but then falls in love with her.

Favorite My Merlin Awakening Quote:

Vane’s lips tightened to suppress a smile. “Why so hostile, love?”

“You deserved it.”

My Merlin Awakening Blurb:

If you haven't broken the rules, have you really lived?

Excalibur has been pulled from the stone, but what does it mean? Arriane (aka Ryan) DuLac doesn’t really care. She's got bigger problems—as student president, she's got to put on the Prom.

While the Wizard Council debates their next move, she leaves the craziness behind and heads home. But she can’t hide forever. Sooner than she’d like Merlin (aka Matt) has her chasing mermaids on the trail of the Fisher King. The wounded King defeated by Merlin’s brother, Vane, in the past holds the key to save the future.

On the journey, Ryan begins to realize the friends she thought she knew, she may not know at all. At a time of shifting alliances, she must decide whose side she’s on—the brother who struggles to do right or the brother who dares to break the rules? And Ryan must decide who she is—a regular or a champion?

One wrong decision and her family falls apart. One wrong decision and the world falls apart. No pressure.

Author Bio

I love stories of all kinds--but especially the gooey ones that make your nose leak and let your latte go cold. I started my first novel at sixteen, writing in notebooks on a long train ride in India during a hot summer vacation. My favorite Arthurian piece is the poem The Lady of Shalott by Lord Alfred Tennyson and a gorgeous song by Loreena McKennitt. A hopeless romantic, I’m a longtime member of the Romance Writer's of America.

  7. Hello ladies,

    Thank you for dropping by. I just wanted to leave a quick note to thank Carly for getting the word out about My Merlin on her awesome blog!

    @Nicola - Glad you like the concept!

    @Sam - I'm glad you're hearing good things! They know what they're talking about. *wink*

    @Malvina & Mel - Thank you!

    @Leanne - Thank you! You know, I was told that the market wasn't good for Arthurians (maybe because I'm in the US?), but I knew I had a solid story. I stumbled upon an Indie publisher and I went for it. I have to say the response, in my opinion, has been in a word-- awesome! Sometimes you just have to take a chance!
