AvariceTouchedCoverDesign“If you forget all else, remember this: I am what they made me.”

Kavion e’ Avarice dreams of power. And as a Mage beloved by the Mad King of the Gods, she just might get her wish. But in the realm of the Closing Fist, intrigue and influence are just as mighty as magickal strength, and Kavion will have to learn just how much she is willing to sacrifice in the name of desire.

Casia Archeon, Bastard-Born Princess of the Blood, wasn’t meant to do more than rule a small territory and live her life as far away from her cruel father as possible. And then he tore from her the one person who mattered most. Battered, betrayed, and determined, Casia will have to choose: keep her safe, quiet life or enter the game.

Together, these two women would be unstoppable. Which is why they must never be allowed to join forces.

Let the Fist tremble, for all evil shall be unsown.

About Us: (Two women of color writing fantasy and using some pretty cool Geek Power while we’re at it!)

Hi everyone I’m back with a new project with my AMAZING cousin, Sarah Rodriguez and the author of Marvel’s Agent Carter: Season One Declassified. And it’s taking my back to the roots of my first love: Fantasy.

One fateful day, I decided to send my cousin a draft of my latest work, Avarice Touched, to look over. She fell in love with the creativity of the world and asked to help me write the full novel. And thus began a partnership that seemed destined since the time I introduced her to Final Fantasy VIII when she was 13.

Can anyone else say this was EPIC!

We’d love to share this world with you, so please pre-order and help us get to the top of the Nerdist Collection Contest!

And, of course, let us tell you more about our world and why we’re writing it.

The World of Altvaria: Meet Kavion e’Avarice, Casia the Bastard-Born, and the many that stand in their way

When we decided to create Altvaria we started from scratch. We thought about the layout, social classes and political interactions. Before the first word was written, there were races, lands, capitals and agendas on all sides.

Altvaria is full of the magical and mundane, from Magi to Warriors, Beastmasters who fly on dragons to wolves that walk on two and four legs. There are the Fallen, who gave Man magick, and the Seraphim, angels, that wish it could be taken back. All is not well in the land. A corruption is growing, spreading. But from whence did it come?

We aimed to create a land we would want to explore and get lost in, and we hope you feel the same once you read Avarice Touched!
