Blog Tour: The Stolen Kingdom by Jillian Boehme {Guest Post + #Giveaway} @JillianBoehme

Author: Jillian Boehme
Title: The Stolen Kingdom
Genre: YA Fantasy

A bold girl, a kingdom under attack, magic everywhere—I devoured it in one sitting! This book is one wild ride!” —Tamora Pierce on Stormrise

Nothing is quite as it seems in this thrilling YA fantasy adventure by Jillian Boehme, The Stolen Kingdom!

For a hundred years, the once-prosperous kingdom of Perin Faye has suffered under the rule of the greedy and power-hungry Thungrave kings. Maralyth Graylaern, a vintner's daughter, has no idea her hidden magical power is proof of a secret bloodline and claim to the throne. Alac Thungrave, the king’s second son, has always been uncomfortable with his position as the spare heir—and the dark, stolen magic that comes with ruling.
When Maralyth becomes embroiled in a plot to murder the royal family and seize the throne, a cat-and-mouse chase ensues in an adventure of dark magic, court intrigue, and forbidden love.

Guest Post


I was born and raised in a small town in Pennsylvania and ended up in Nashville, TN with my songwriting husband (who fortunately decided to pursue other things). Our five children were all born in Middle Tennessee, and I’ve homeschooled them from kindergarten up (four have already graduated).

Writing blends beautifully with raising (and homeschooling) children – the perfect work-at-home situation. Mind you, I didn’t start writing for many years after delving into motherhood. It took me a while to rediscover my writerly self, and I finally self-published a collection of humorous anecdotes on motherhood in 2003.

Though I’d started writing poems and stories when I was six, I somehow came to believe, after publishing my book of essays, that I could never write a novel. That changed one night as I was curled up reading The Little White Horse and thinking to myself, I could do better than this. (I mean, I hated that book. Who knew it would take hating a book to get me to try my hand at writing one!)

And so my first, very horrible novel was born. It took me five years—and several more novels—to land a literary agent, and another seven years (plus a new agent) to sell my first book (STORMRISE). To date, I’ve written 13 novels, two of which have been published. That’s a lot of writing to have “become” what I am today!

I’m thankful for my journey, though it wasn’t easy along the way. When you work for something for so long, it makes the fulfillment of the dream that much sweeter. In the end, I think I’m doing what I was supposed to be doing all along. And that’s a wonderful feeling.
