Hey there, dear heart! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is basically ONE WEEK AWAY? *collapses* I am SO
not ready. 😱
This Wednesday, I’m very excited to share an interview and a sample from Jaye L. Knight’s (updated!) audiobook, Resistance, narrated by Lance Rasmussen. I’m a BIG fan of Resistance and the rest of the books in The Ilyon Chronicles! Audiobook creation is also something I’ve been curious to learn more about, so when I learned there was an opportunity to interview the narrator? Um, YES. I. WAS. IN.
And then Jaye and Lance surprised me!
It’s not the traditional sort of interview we’re sharing, today… it’s a video! ft. a studio tour, behind-the-scenes, AND the answers to all my questions! 🙊 But before I share that, let’s make some introductions!
About the Book
Volume 1 of The Ilyon Chronicles
“Don’t you know? Animals like you have no soul.”
Could God ever love a half-blood all of society looks upon with such fear and disdain? Jace once believed so, but when a tragic loss shatters the only peace he’s ever known, his faith crumbles as the nagging doubts he’s tried to put behind him descend on his grieving heart. With them come the haunting memories of the bloodstained past he longs to forget, but can never escape.
Taken from home at a young age and raised to serve the emperor, Kyrin Altair lives every day under a dangerous pretense of loyalty. After her unique observation skills and perfect memory place her into direct service to the emperor, Kyrin finds herself in further jeopardy as it becomes increasingly difficult to hide her belief in Elôm, the one true God.
Following the emperor’s declaration to enforce the worship of false gods under the penalty of death, many lives are endangered. But there are those willing to risk everything to take a stand and offer aid to the persecuted. With their lives traveling paths they never could have imagined, Jace and Kyrin must fight to overcome their own fears and conflicts with society as they become part of the resistance.
Resistance is now available on Audible and iTunes!
Psst! Paperbacks and ebooks are also available on Amazon! For a limited time, starting Friday, November 29, all The Ilyon Chronicles ebooks will be on sale — Half-Blood, the prequel to Resistance, will even be free!
