Take TV shows for instance. Some are sitcoms, others sci-fi, fantasy, or horror (and so many more I haven't named). But no matter the genre or plot line, if you become absorbed in the show, you're temporarily stepping out of your comfy slippers and into the heads of the characters on-screen. Same for reading and writing--and maybe for most any activity where you get that 'flow' going.
Hmm, I think that may be why music speaks to so many of us. Even if we're not stepping into someone's life, we can mentally put ourselves in the same situation whether we've lived through a similar experience or not.
So even if you've never liked fantasy, I believe with my definition, everybody loves a little of it! Of course, I also love the fantasy genre, but that's a discussion for another post!
What your favorite escape from everyday life?
Now on to a little bit of blatent self-promo. This Feb, Bound by the Mist, a full-length fantasy romance, is coming out! I'm self-publishing this one. I'm just waiting to get my hands on the cover art, and then I'm good to go!
Bound by the Mist is a story I truly love, and I hope that any who read it will agree. Realistically, I know that's not possible, but I can dream, right? To learn more about the story and to read snippets and excerpts, drop by http://lisakumar.blogspot.com/ or http://lisakumar.com
Before I go, I'll share the blurb:
A magic that's fading
Relian has lived a life that hasn’t changed in millennia, and he likes it that way. As Prince of the Erian people, he has his conscripted duties. And a human, even one as desirable as Cal, does not fit into them. But as the enemy darkindred knock on the borders and the magic of his people fades, he might just have to find room.
A love that's binding
College Student Cal Weston spends a good portion of her time trying to keep people from thinking she's crazy, including herself. And with good reason. But her carefully constructed reality is turned upside down when she discovers that Relian, the seductive Elvin prince who has been starring in her sensuous fantasies, isn’t merely a myth and his magical kingdom really exists. Now she’s bound to an elf and stuck in a land where no one, least of all Relian, is willing to spill any answers about the truth of her arrival.
Two people, two worlds meet in the mist
Even as love grows between them, can they lay aside their differences to embrace a life together?
Thanks for stopping by!
