Hey, fabulous readers! 🌟 I have some incredibly exciting news to share with you all! I’m beyond thrilled to announce the launch of my brand new urban fantasy romance series, starting with **”Merely Mortal”**. This series is a first in many ways for me, and I can’t wait for you to dive into the magical, mysterious world I’ve created. So, grab a cozy seat and a cup of your favorite beverage, because I’m about to take you on a whimsical journey into the heart of “Merely Mortal”.

A New Perspective: First Person POV

For those of you who have been following my work, you know I love to experiment with different storytelling techniques and genres. From contemporary to paranormal romance, and even science fiction, I’ve explored various narratives to keep you, my dear readers, on your toes. But “Merely Mortal” marks a special milestone—it’s my very first series written entirely in first person POV. Yes, you heard that right!

Writing in first person POV has been an exhilarating experience. It allows me to delve deeply into the protagonist’s thoughts and emotions, giving you a more intimate and immersive reading experience. You’ll get to see the world through Tamara’s eyes, feel her joys, fears, and everything in between. It’s a whole new way for me to connect with you, and I hope you love this new perspective as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Meet Tamara: Our Strong Female Protagonist

Merely Mortal” introduces you to Tamara, an ordinary woman who finds herself entangled in a world brimming with supernatural entities. From vampires and necromancers to dark family secrets, Tamara’s life is anything but mundane. She’s a character I fell in love with instantly—she’s strong, relatable, and full of determination. Despite the chaos surrounding her, Tamara navigates her challenges with a mix of vulnerability and resilience that I believe will resonate with many of you.

A Blend of Urban Fantasy and Romance

If you’re a fan of urban fantasy and romance, you’re in for a treat! “Merely Mortal” seamlessly blends these two genres, offering you a narrative that’s both thrilling and heartwarming. The urban fantasy setting provides a rich backdrop for Tamara’s adventures, filled with magic, mythical creatures, and a hidden world within our own. Meanwhile, the romantic elements add depth to the story, exploring themes of love, trust, and emotional connection.

The Heart of the Story: Themes and Tropes

At its core, “Merely Mortal” is a story about identity and belonging. Tamara’s journey is one of self-discovery as she grapples with her place in a world that feels inherently incompatible with her mortal existence. This theme is universal and speaks to anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider, trying to find their way in a complex, often overwhelming world.

The series also delves into themes of family legacy and expectations, power dynamics, and the eternal struggle between good and evil. These elements are woven together with beloved tropes such as forbidden love, strong female protagonists, and supernatural conspiracies. Whether it’s the tension of a forbidden romance or the thrill of uncovering dark secrets, “Merely Mortal” promises to keep you hooked from start to finish.

A Magical World Awaits

One of the most enjoyable aspects of writing “Merely Mortal” was creating its magical world. Imagine a city much like our own, but with a hidden layer teeming with supernatural beings—vampires lurking in shadows, necromancers practicing ancient arts, and mythical creatures blending seamlessly into the human world. This hidden world within our world adds an extra layer of intrigue and excitement to the narrative.
