Kingdom Come
By
Danielle M. Orsino

But first some information

About the Author :

Danielle M. Orsino is a fantasy novelist whose compelling word-weaving pays homage to a multitude of personal muses, from Chris Claremont and George Pérez (both famous comic book writers), to Anne Rice, Jim Henson and Wonder Woman. The creative spark of storytelling has been with Danielle ever since she was a child, but martial arts and her nursing career took center stage into adulthood.
Then, on a day like any other, it was reignited during the most unexpected of moments: while treating one of her patients. It started as a simple tale to distract her patient and transformed into a fantastical narrative that would become the foundation for the series “The Birth of Fae”.
In keeping with the roots of her creativity, it was a unanimous decision by 4 Horsemen Publishing to place her on the cover of each book in all her Fae cosplay glory. The series also features Los, an affable chameleon dragon, inspired by her fun-loving Yorkie named Carlos.
This “New Queen of the Fae’s” unmatched world-building and masterful Fae-origin retellings have led to an ever-growing queendom of “Fae-natics”.

Synopsis :

What would you do for love? How much would you sacrifice?
All is peaceful in the Veil, which is usually when everything falls apart…
After centuries of conflict and mistrust, the Court of Light and the Court of Dark are about to unite as the Court of the Fae. Queen Aurora of the Court of Light and King Jarvok of the Court of Dark have fallen in love despite all odds. A relationship of political convenience has turned into something real and tangible for the two monarchs.
But not every Fae is happy about an impending union. Queen Aurora’s bishops, her most trusted advisors, have never lost touch with their old Angelic ways. They still believe that Virtues and Power Angels were never meant to mix. They feel Queen Aurora is no longer suitable to rule the Court of Light. The bishops mount a complex coup d’état to grasp the throne. Then a new player enters the game, and no one ever saw them coming.
The foundation of peace between the Light and Dark Fae crumbles with one last act of betrayal. Was it all an illusion? Was it an act of duplicity or the ultimate act of love? King Jarvok is about to learn Kyanite armor cannot protect a warrior from a broken heart, but he has been keeping secrets of his own.

After this great teaser I hope you are still excited for the

From the Ashes
By
Danielle M. Orsino

But first some information

About the Author :

Danielle M. Orsino — destined to be a writer from a young age — was working as a nurse, treating a patient who needed some distractions during long treatment sessions, when inspiration struck.
Orsino reached back to a forgotten skill, a childhood dream. From a young age, she had wanted to be a writer, so she decided to tell her patient a story. Little did she know a seed was planted that day; a seed that would grow into a fantastically epic adventure of heartbreak, hope, and rebirth:
Locked Out of Heaven: Birth of the Fae Book One.
Drawing from her passion for comic books, cosplay, and the fantasy genre, along with her martial arts expertise, Orsino brings forth an electric and hopeful book debut. She is taking on her biggest challenge to date — a story born from the long treatment sessions with a patient, and building it into a fantasy book series, Birth of the Fae.
Expanding on her love of writing and comics, and exploring the world of fantasy novels, she delves into the realm of fairies, retelling their origins from a completely new perspective.

Synopsis :

Queen Aurora and King Jarvok are finding that there is a thin line between love, hate, and Oblivion.
The war between the Court of Light and Dark has finally ended, and peace reigns. The Court of Light continued advising the human monarchs of Europe while the Court of Dark kept to themselves, intervening only to act as the humans Dark Gods and Goddesses.
The two Courts were both upholding their respective duties as written by the Treaty of Bodhicitta, until Queen Mary the first of England reneges on a Changeling contract with the Court of Light. This unfortunate act puts events in motion which led to the last Fire Drake, Bishop Awynn, making the ultimate sacrifice. Awynn loses his light while saving The Dark Fae King during a tense standoff with Queen Aurora.
Queen Aurora swears revenge upon Mary for Awynn’s death and issues the same warning she gave her Father, King Henry the Eighth, so many years ago. However, King Jarvok had his own point of view on Queen Aurora’s vengeance and pays Aurora a visit to deliver his critique of her technique, leading to a knock-down drag-out fight between the two Fae monarchs.
Both Leaders refuse to bow even if it means certain Oblivion…

Synopsis :

Title: Birth of the Fae: Thine Eyes of Mercy, Book Two
Publication Date: December 1st, 2021
Genre: Fantasy

Queen Aurora, monarch of the Court of Light Fae and King Jarvok, Leader of the Court of Dark Fae are exhausted and battle worn after centuries of fighting. A war of attrition had taken its toll upon their kin and power bases.
What happens when you have to give in to your enemy?
All wars eventually end even magical ones. The Dark and Light Fae have set their elemental magick and weapons down but, all is not quiet in the Veil…
King Jarvok was confident his army could win the war, but at what cost? It was time to act like a King not a power hungry megalomaniac. That was his Creator’s title not his. He reaches out to Queen Aurora, and the Treaty of Bodhicitta is signed.
The treaty promises the Fae will never spill each other’s blood again. Rules for their human worshipers are put into place. The Court of Dark must not interfere with humans in a malignant way, but they can act as gods and goddesses of atonement. The Court of Light can return to acting as advisors to the European royal families, as they have done for centuries.
However, Queen Aurora and King Jarvok will learn that while they were playing war games, their humans have changed and moved away from the old ways.
The two monarchs face unknown challenges in a world where Christianity not paganism is the new power.
Sometimes the devil you know is better than the one you do not.

Synopsis :

BirthoftheFae-frontRide on the backs of fire breathing dragons with the Dark Fae and watch the Light Fae play in the shadows of primitive humanity as they build their magical world.
Abandoned by their creator, two factions of powerful angels remain on earth after the Great War with Lucifer. They struggle to comprehend their Creator’s plan while their angel wings, a symbol of their angelic lineage, slowly and painfully decay. With no hope of returning to the Shining Kingdom, two groups of angels denounce their angelic lineage and develop into separate factions – the Court of Light, led by Queen Aurora, a former Virtue Angel, and the Court of Dark, ruled by King Jarvok, a former Power Brigade Angel. The two monarchs have opposing views on how to govern their kin, but the one belief they agree on is that human worship equals power.
Birth of the Fae: Locked Out of Heaven is an epic fantasy adventure of heartbreak, rebirth, and hope that examines the bonds of family, friendship, and love. It is a fantastic tale of good vs evil in a beautiful world, where the Light Fae and their potent elemental magick are tested by the raw power of the dragon riding Dark Fae warriors.

Q&A :

Hi

First of all thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions, I really appreciate it. Here we go! 🙂

Can you, for those who don’t know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?
My name is Danielle M. Orsino, I am a competitive martial artist and Nurse. However, I have left that all behind to write the Birth of the Fae series. I have two rescue pups, Carlos , which anyone who has read Birth of the Fae: Locked Out of Heaven, may know him as “Los” the dragon. Penelope, my other little dog, the readers will meet later in the series as “Lady Penelope” , a member of the Aubane Faction. The Aubane are oversized white deer with gilded antlers but of course, Lady Penelope will have something extra special. I am not a “Classically trained writer” the entire process was a huge learning experience. Overall writing the book for all intensive purposes was joyful. It came from an organic place, inspired by a patient who had been undergoing long IV treatments and needed a distraction. The story was born from these sessions with him.

Which books did/do you love to read as a child/now as a grown-up?
As a child the first book I was read to aloud and inturn learned to read on my own was “Hop on Pop” by Dr. Seuss. The book which i fell in love with was the “Secret of Nihm” later on. However, the books which influenced me the most were comicbooks, Wonder Woman, X-men, those had a huge effect on me.

Is there a writer whose brain you would love to pick for advice? Who would that be and why?
That would be a toss up between Chris Claremont from the X-men series, he wrote some of the most legendary storylines-The Dark Phoenix Saga and Days of Future past. He was with Marvel for over 15 years. He was integral for some of the most iconic mutant characters. The next would be Anne Rice, she has changed and evolved in her writing so much I would love to know her views on the industry.

If you could, which fictional character (from your own book(s) or someone else’s) would you like to invite for tea and why?
I would like to sit and speak with my own King Jarvok and talk about how he feels regarding his journey and if I am doing him justice. He is a complex character, not a hero but not a villain, I am sure he has opinions.

Do you have some rituals or habits whilst writing?
I make a playlist which mimics the emotional crescendo of the book that I listen to over and over as I write.

Where do you come up with your idea(s)? Do people in your life need to be worried? 😉
I always pull from real life, fantasy is just real life with magical dust sprinkled on it. The problems are the same just set in a fantasy world. Human issues and dynamics translate to gnomes or Fae it all in how you package it. I wrote what I know but with a magical feel. Who would have thought my nine pound yorkie would be a chameleon dragon but there he is.

Are you a plotter or do you go with the flow, as a pantser?
I go with the flow, I handwrite the books and begin the real editing work when I sit at the computer to type it out that is the first real edit. When I handwrite it is just to get it out of my head, I build the skeleton first, the first edit on the computer places the organs and I go from there.

Can you give novice writers some tips (do’s/don’ts)?
A tip for a novice writer is keep writing, don’t stop. Who cares if it’s good or bad. You will improve with every stroke of the pen or key. Write what you know, relationships and human connection we all understand whether you set it in a sci-fi world or a magical realm it’s all the same. Unrequited love, someone searching for validation or a person on a quest for redemption we can all relate. Chose your setting and write.

What are your futureplans as an author?
I would love to do a Birth of the Fae graphic novel with Image comics and eventually a cartoon series.

Last, but not least : Can you give my readers one teaser from your book, which is featured here on my blog, please?
A teaser would be cheating! However what I can tell the readers is Birth of the Fae: Locked Out of Heaven will take them on a magical journey and ask them to question what would they do if they were abandoned by all they knew? How would they reinvent themselves. Would they become an antihero like King Jarvok or the quintessential Queen like Aurora ? Birth of the Fae will give them insight into that question and show them a new twist on the origin of the Fae, one we have never seen or heard before. Let’s see what happens when angels cannot go home and become our Fae!

Isn’t that a great reason to pick up this book and to find out more?!
Thanks once again for this lovely interview, Danielle M. Orsino.
