Reader Input Desired!

In my previous post I had mentioned that I was beginning a fantasy novel. Naturally this means that I have had less time to blog and create other resources for my followers. (Granted, not a huge following, but I get usually over a thousand views a month.). If there is something you would like help compiling information on, musically, please leave me a comment so I can keep that it mind!

My book is geared toward younger readers, in the middle to high school age range. My characters range from age 11 to early 20s (for the primary characters). There are dragons and other fantasy elements, but I am attempting to keep things as real as possible otherwise, so that it will seem as though this is a past that could have happened.

Culturally the world is distinctly Anglo-Saxon, with other characters of Celtic  (Welsh/Pict/Celtic) and Eastern (Arabic) ancestry making appearances.

I would love your input on:

  1. “Lessons” you might like to have included in a story of this type.
  2. Elements you love to see in fantasy novels.
  3. Elements you hate to see in fantasy novels.
  4. And elements that you love to hate in fantasy novels. (Example: George R.R. Martin is excellent with plot twists and killing off unexpected and seemingly necessary characters, and it makes for great story telling, but I still hate it!)


About Lady Fair

Lady is a musician with a bachelor's degree in music education. She plays multiple instruments and has participated in numerous musical ensembles, giving her a wide variety of experiences and knowledge to use in her teaching career. Of her ensemble participation, she has fifteen years of band experience, nine years choral, and four years in orchestra. Éowyn's primary instrument is clarinet, with voice and piano being close secondary instruments. Throughout her musical education career she studied voice and clarinet simultaneously. In addition to clarinet, piano, and voice, she has also studied violin and oboe at the college level, and also plays recorder, tin whistle, and other instruments in the woodwind family. If you ask her, she will say, "I chose to major in music education because I have a desire to use my knowledge and experience in music to share its beauty and foster a love of music in the hearts of my students. I hope to encourage my students to try their hardest, feel like they have accomplished something, and give them a life long passion for music." Lady currently teaches private lessons on clarinet, sax, flute, oboe, piano, and voice, and recently gained a position teaching orchestra and chorus at a local middle school. She is also a member of the Once Upon a Dream woodwind ensembles.
