TRADE THE DAY Featured Author: Maer Wilson
By - August 6, 2013
On August 23, starting at midnight, I will be hosting a special event called Trade the Day: Spotlight on Team Alaina. During this twenty-four hour blog-a-thon, proceeds from sales of my new book, The Trade, made on my publisher's website at stairwaypress.com will go to benefit Team Alaina for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. This week, I began to feature our guest authors, and for the next 14 weekdays leading up to the big event, I will continue to introduce you to two of the day's scheduled special guests, some which will be guest blogging, some who will be hosting giveaways of autographed books and other goodies, and some who will be doing both! Get to know this fantastic group of people right here, and come back on August 23 to join us for a day of 24 hours, 23 guest authors, and 1 goal...a cure.
The next featured author I'm proud to introduce you to is:
After a successful career being other people, and later teaching others the many tricks of that trade, Maer Wilson has decided to be herself for a while. Turns out she’s a writer. She’s always loved stories, especially fantasy, mystery and sci fi. She has a dragon-themed room in her home, but sadly no dragons in the back yard. When she’s not writing, Maer plays online video games, teaches college and reads.
Maer has a BA from CSU Fullerton, where she majored in Theatre Arts. As a former professional stage actor in Southern California, she gave over three thousand performances in an eight-year span. This helped tremendously with creating the characters in Relics, Book 1 of The Thulukan Chronicles.
While Maer writes mostly urban fantasy, she also dips into horror and paranormal mysteries. An avid gamer, her current games of choice are Star Wars: The Old Republic and Guild Wars 2. She’s eagerly awaiting a new MMO, Wildstar. Combining two loves, she is a columnist for two popular gaming fansites, Corellian Run Radio and Wildstar Radio.
Maer is also a co-producer and co-host for the literary podcast, MythBehaving. She enjoys interviewing guests from the publishing world and takes the great advice her guests give and applies it to her own career.
Portals, Book 2 of The Thulukan Chronicles is in submission. She’s currently writing the first draft for Book 3 of The Thulukan Chronicles as well as another fantasy novel and several short stories.
Relics was released by Crescent Moon Press on May 1. 2013 and is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

When the creatures of myth and magic return to Earth, they're nothing like your mother's fairy tales.
Most of Thulu and La Fi's clients are dead. Which is perfect since their detective agency caters to the supernatural. So, a job finding relics for an ancient daemon is simple.
The daemon needs the relics to keep a dangerous portal closed. His enemy, Gabriel, wants the relics to open the portal and give his people access to a new feeding ground - Earth.
Hoping to create chaos, Gabriel opens portals to other worlds and the creatures of magic return to Earth, stunning humanity with their existence.
When Gabriel threatens their family, Thulu and La Fi's job becomes personal. They'll need powerful allies in the race to find the relics before Gabriel does. But maybe that's what grateful dead, magical allies and daemonic clients are for.
