It's been a while since I participated in the CSFF Blog Tours, but since I've scaled back on my Novel Teen blog, I thought I'd get involved again. This month they are featuring One Realm Beyond by Donita K. Paul, the first book in a new young adult fantasy series.
This was a really fun book.
I'll post my review tomorrow, but today I wanted to talk about the storyworld. I'm a storyworld-first writer, so storyworlds always intrigue me.

Up ahead, a door opened and a plump woman stepped into the hallway. She wore a black dress and apron. “Fin! So good to see you, dear boy. How was the trip?” She embraced Drake in a smothering hug.

But a mysterious senet box he found in an Egyptian treasure hoard had John’s full attention. It calls to him.
Some say he is obsessed. But he must solve the mystery of the box, if only to know he is not insane.

What is The Senet Box, Jill?
The Senet Box is the short story I wrote as a contribution to the Spirited anthology. I’ve decided to release the story as a gift whenever someone signs up for my Sanctum...
“Even fairies can die, Captain.”
Drake scowled down on the freedman standing beside him. “We’re not fairies, Kenneth.”
The old man waved his hand. “You know what I mean. Only the Old Ones are immortal. The rest of us—malaki . . . human . . . Our lives are a mist that appears for a little while, then vanishes.”
