A Tale of Two Crowns

Preface by Oroya Pea Scot

I’ve always wondered how history effects the present.

It is an easy enough statement to comprehend. Once read, we tend to accept it and that doesn’t mean we believe it to be true, because what really is truth? Is there ever a truthfulness to anything we experience?

Now this might be a little hypothetical for these specific collection of stories, in fact why am I insisting we discuss this.A Tale of Two Crowns, is a simple collection of stories from a made up world, with made up people living inside pages.

But for one minute, these stories are truth. As readers we begin to live and breathe as these characters. We may even adopt certain characteristics to survive our own stories; and that’s what I’m trying to get at.

We, as living breathing people, are the protagonists of our own stories. We are the persona in our own poetry and we are certainly the actors and actresses of our own movies (we’ve all got a playlist that is our soundtrack to life).

We all carry a bias because we all have our own history and it is our pasts that influence our future. But as I suggested before, we are the writers of our future and it is up to us to inform the present of what the future will be.

For the people inA Tale of Two Crowns, they don’t have much choice as fictional characters. But as they breathe amongst the pages and come to life through themovie reel in your head, you’ll soon discover that one action made by a single person, can affect people who are not even in this world yet.

With that, my lovely readers, I’ll get on with the collection.

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!

Deleted User: I love your use of writer's craft and how you use figurative language to enhance your writing. It great how you didn't have any spelling or grammar issues.

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

bloodrosemaiden: I love this book!! I have read it several times and though there could be improvements I applaud the author. I know positive feed back is appreciated!! I enjoy reading about the learning the different character's backstories, and the affects in the overall story!
