Keryl Raist- Sylvianna

Keryl Raist is a part-time writer, part-time blogger, part-time book reviewer, and full-time mom.  When not balancing babies with books, she likes to sleep.  She lives in Charleston, SC, with two little boys; the "Number One, All-Star, Son-In-Law Of The Year Champion" (according to a discerning panel of her mom and mom's best friends); and a remarkably unflusterable cat.

Product description: Sarah Metz just got to Sylvianna College.  She went in search of a biology degree.  She found a group of wizards on the run from their past.  They remember her.  She doesn't remember them.  Over the next year, she'll help them fight off the creatures trying to kill them, fall back into love with the man who used to be her husband, break the heart of her best friend while doing it, and maybe, if they're very, very lucky, not remember who she used to be.

Sylvianna is a modern day fantasy with a scorching hot romance and a deeply layered plot.  Angels, demons, magic, sword fights, free will, destiny, and true love all weave into a complex tale of the search for redemption.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

It's a deeply layered fantasy for adults with sympathetic characters, a well thought out magical system, and enough action to keep men happy and enough romance to keep women happy. 

Q: Why did you go indie?

This will sound a bit mercenary, but I wanted to own all of my rights.  I didn't want to see my characters end up in sequels and prequels that I didn't write or authorize.  I didn't want to see them end up in movies that I abhorred.  And I wanted to sell at my own speed, not having to create a six week blitz and never be seen again if it didn't work out well.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

Charlaine Harris, MeiLin Miranda, and a huge collection of very talented fan fic writers who don't use their real names.
