How would you like to win a sword necklace? Read on to find out how.
As a reader and an editor, I love reading about strong, kick-ass women. If I read something with a woman who can’t think straight, who falls apart when someone farts sideways, or can’t seem to make a decision without I Thump On Chest He-Man helping her, I’ll toss the story or book aside so fast there’s a trail of fire behind it.
Now that doesn’t mean a heroine shouldn’t have flaws and insecurities. We all do, woman or man. I’m talking about woman who can’t do anything without Thump On Chest He-Man’s opinion. Puh-leeze!
Women have been the strength behind thrones for thousands of centuries. Even if they live in a society where men *think* they own them like a horse or a dog, somehow, someway women figure out how to be the stronger sex—not to mention the smarter sex. Even women in abusive relationships outwit the jerk who’s abusing her. I know because I’ve been there, especially when the relationship involves a child(ren). Somehow, some way a woman will overcome the obstacle.
When Heather Bennett asked me to write the launch book for Decadent’s Elatia line, I decided I’d write a strong yet unique heroine. Oh, she’s not the typical gal who gets in a boxing ring with another woman. Neither is she the type of female who has mutant powers like Storm from the X-Men or even Wonder Woman. Nah, Feather, my heroine, uses years of training, brute strength, and pure intelligence and willpower. Piss her off and you’re liable to find yourself on the pointy end of a sword that has slain many battle beasts.
Feather is also vulnerable. Taught to show no emotion, she suddenly finds herself thrust into a world where emotion and fleshly pleasure overwhelm everything else. It’s like being the new, poor kid tossed into the wealthiest high school in the nation. How do you fit in and is it even possible, especially in matters of love? And when it comes to a love triangle, desire is an understatement.
Now, back to the fantasy pendant. I chose this one because it represents Feather’s strength, her name i.e. the feathery wings, and the power and expertise Feather has when she wields a weapon. The pendant is pure pewter, nickel free and a hair over
2” inches long, so it’s a nice size. It also comes with a 16” silk cord.
