Ever My Merlin, Book 3, My Merlin Series

The end of the world. The day of reckoning. The final battle.

In the last chapter of the My Merlin Series, it is a time of great strife for Arriane (aka Ryan) and Merlin (aka Matt) as they struggle to stem the flood of destruction unleashed upon the world. Their only hope rests in the one object that can restore their greatest ally: the Healing Cup.

With every scrap of life hanging in the balance, Ryan must convince both friends and enemies that the key to survival rests in the plans of a sword-toting girl of only eighteen. She must reconcile a fifteen-hundred-year rivalry between two brothers, and be ruthless enough to break a heart—and a life—in the process.  And at some point, she really needs to get herself to Prom.

My Boyfriend Merlin as a Role Playing Game (RPG)

My Avatar Merlin

I originally wrote this article for the wonderful blog Mother, Gamer, Writer. Check out the blog for an awesome review of My Boyfriend Merlin. I thought I’d share the rest of the article here because it was such fun to write:

When I saw I was going to get to be on Mother, Gamer, Writer, I had to write an RPG post. One of my characters (Vane) is an avid gamer and he insisted!

An excerpt from My Boyfriend Merlin:

I gaped at him. “What are you doing?”

“Passing the time.” (Vane) scrolled through the game’s menu. It looked to be another sword and sorcery fantasy RPG.

“Are you crazy?” I said. “This is the night before the biggest final exam of our lives. Shouldn’t you be giving me some last minute advice or training or something?”

“Would you listen?”

“Probably not.”

Game on! So, to have a little fun, what would My Boyfriend Merlin be as an RPG?
The Quest: To pull the sword from the stone and gain the ultimate weapon to save humanity on the Day of Reckoning.
Choose your avatar: One of the Candidates (humans and wizards with the ability to pull the sword from the stone).

Arriane, aka Ryan our nice girl protagonist. Special skill: History trivia extraordinaire (fairly useless skill or is it?)

Grey, her brother. Special skill: Gifted athlete, swords, and lances

Gia, the best friend. Special skill: street-smart witch

Blake, the wizard. Special skill: magic

Mark, the brute Candidate. Special skill: street fighting wizard

The Guide: Merlin, aka, Matt. All-seeing O-wise-one (at least, he thinks he is)

The Gatekeeper: Vane, Merlin’s brother. Trainer and keeper of weapons (thinks he’s the Lord of Hyrule) Get past him and you’re ready to take on the sword.

The bad guys: Gargoyles. They won’t hesitate to kill any Candidate. Special Powers: super-strength and limited magic.

The Final Level: Only those who acquire enough training/weapons/magic will get past the last obstacle—the sword’s trial.

And that’s my take on the RPG of My Boyfriend Merlin. Hope you enjoyed it!

iPads and digital textbooks in Classrooms? No, duh!

Excited about Apple’s new announcement. Glad to see the future is getting closer! Apple Announcement: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/technology/2012/01/apple-announcement-ibooks-2-ibooks-author-for-digital-textbooks/

Digital Textbooks in Classroom

I thought I was cutting edge when I wrote this excerpt from My Boyfriend Merlin (Back in 2010…so long ago. Life moves fast.):

Marilynn…passed out black cases to everyone. I opened mine to find an iPad inside. Several candidates whistled. Despite my agitated state, it impressed me too. Maybe wizard school wasn’t going to be as lame as I had thought.

“All of your schedules and assignments will be done on these,” Marilynn explained. “The whole school is on these. We’ve had them for awhile now.”

….

Outside the clock tower chimed. I tapped my iPad. The calendar told me that I was scheduled for Basic Elements in the morning, then a break for lunch, and then Physical Training in the afternoon.
