Book Tour and Giveaway: Five Gems Series by E. Kaiser Writes

Jeweler's Apprentice
Five Gems Book 1
E. Kaiser Writes

YA Fantasy Adventure
On her first visit to the palace, sixteen-year-old Fia stumbles upon a court intrigue. To keep the secret safe, the Chancellor sends her off as apprentice to a famous, reclusive, mountain jeweler...

...And straight into adventure.

Discovering gems with deep secrets and new friends with the same, Fia learns a whole lot more than just making jewelry: when to trust a stranger, and when not to, why not to try stealing from gem thieves; what heroism is; what royalty ought to be; and that the mountains themselves can sometimes be the greatest danger of all.

Is the legend of the Sunlight Stone true?

Will peace ever come to the war-torn neighboring kingdom?

And what is the stable boy hiding...?

Traitor's Knife
Five Gems Book 2
Secrets. Sabotage. Murder. With Olayin House temporarily turned into a weapons factory, Fia is confronted with the care of three refugee children, an ill-timed visitor, a perplexingly brash messenger that she isn't quite sure what to think of, all while trying to keep her friend’s secrets safe. But when dangerous accidents start to happen, the young apprentice begins to tread a fine line of suspicion. Are saboteurs out to nix the weapons works... and is the incognito crown prince in mortal peril? Winter in the mountain house isn’t as cozy as her apprenticeship was expected to be.

**Only .99 cents!**

King's Ward
Five Gems Book 3
With her wealth of loyalist secrets, Fia’s position at Olayin House is compromised. Now a potential danger to two countries, she is made a ward of the king and sent away yet again; this time into the grassland kingdom of Erlandia, but her journey amongst the horse folk takes unexpected turns.

Trapped under siege, she faces two men from her past... one she fears might murder her, and the other may die of plague unless she wins the battle for his life.

And with the Sunlight Stone traded for troops, how long will Erlandia’s peace last?

E. Kaiser Writes was born into a family of readers, and got started on storytelling around the age of four when her older siblings prompted her into recounting an absolutely ridiculous account of a parallel childhood. It was good for the family's general entertainment, and she discovered the thrill of making people laugh.

At the age of seven her mother read the Hobbit aloud, and a fascination with beautiful fantasy was born. At nine she came to the decision that she wanted to be a writer, and set to reading rabidly to learn the art. At thirteen she attempted her first novel, and it was eaten in a computer's demise.

Afterward, during her teenage years she tried very hard at various times to stop writing all together.

Not succeeding, she at last gave in to her addiction, and wrote "for fun".

Her first novel, Jeweler's Apprentice, is a light-fantasy adventure for teens. The shy, bookish heroine is thrust out on the first step toward the adventure that awaits, and growing up. More books in this series are expected.

Where were you born/grew up at?

I grew up all over, and by that I mean within America. But a wide variety of regions have impacted my life, and as we always lived rural, sometimes without electricity, it was an adventure that’s hard to explain!

But that really influences my stories. The way local terrain and weather patterns really affect how things are done on a daily level when you’re so connected to your environment and dependent upon it; it’s a big factor in my writing style.

So many books or movies are played out in a vacuum... as if the story would go the exact same way in a hundred different settings, and that’s just not so. Environment massively impacts how people do things, and from there it impacts how the story goes.

Stories set in modern times, all right, yes, there is a great similarity increase brought in with the inclusion of power lines, cell phones, and television.

But historical, or “past-based” fiction of any kind, really needs to consider the intricacies of real life in balance with geography and climate. They add such rich detail to the tiny moments, and it’s something so many creatives miss out on completely, and something I try to really capitalize on. Because we seek entertainment not just to hear “who dunnit”, but why, and how, and those two points are underlain in so many ways by the environment as a stage.

So yes! I grew up exposed to Texas desert, (scorpions, ack!) though to Minnesota winters, (talk about Nordic inspired!) from the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee to the Northern Rockies just short of Canada. Also, the plains states, which cast my teens and 20’s in a very “Erlandian” light.
