December 15, 2011 Review by author J. Moffett Walker

New author, Jennifer Mulvihill, has penned an interesting fantasy entitled, The Lost Daughter of Easa.
This book kept me reading from the beginning to the end, which is unusual for a non-fantasy reader. Although the book has sixty- nine chapters, the chapters are short and that mesmerized me and motivated me to want more and more. The short chapters helped me to read all three hundred and thirty-nine pages, every drop.
Mulvihill went to great length developing her characters; that included the protagonist, Elsie, those who helped her and all the many villains. One interesting point was how she described her non-human characters. One example, which was one of my favorite chapters, included Elsie’s encounter with a tree that engulfed her.

The foreshadowing technique the author used, readers can easily underestimate the value of the clues.

If you are a fantasy lover, this book is a must read for you. Like me, I believe others will enjoy The Lost Daughter of Easa.

The Launching of The Lost Daughter of Easa


photo by Katie Bennett
The Lost Daughter of Easa came out and hit the ground running. The launching occurred at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, GA, a most appropriate place to launch a fantasy novel. The book sold out which is a promising start. The second book signing took place at Pentimento Books in Clinton, MS, and again sales were very good and continued through the day even after the book store signing had ended until again J L Mulvihill was left without any books again.  While public signings are showing promise, the online sales are showing a steady flow of books being purchased as well.  One can only hope that the Lost Daughter of Easa will continue to shine in the coming months and into the next year as well.

WELCOME TO THE DWW

Welcome to the DWW also know as the Dimensional World Web

The universe is filled with mystery and uncertainty. Many kinds of life forces struggling to coexist, amidst the many realms and worlds within worlds expanding into countless dimensions. The world that each life force exists in has and will always share a coinciding existence with other worlds. These worlds flow through and over and under each other twisting around, intertwining and colliding at every turn.

BEWARE THE WEBS!

PURE LOVE

Pure love,

from the deepest fathoms of your soul goes beyond mere mortal understanding.

For one so young to feel such bounding emotion would surely break ones heart.

Pure love,

never molded from the wild glistening softly in the mind until it spreads beyond.

Cradling the body into despair drilling a hole that’s bottomless and dark.

Pure love,

an endless flow of emotions even after years have past and lips remain silent.

A tender and fond thought brings a smile now but only, only to a troubled sea.

Pure love,

etched forever in the memories of the old a tantalizing fluid of dreams gone by.

what was, what never was, what could never have been, what never will be.

Still remains, pure love.

Never Waking

I dream of she,

She dreams of me,
Never waking our minds connect.
I am alive,
She had to die,
Never waking our minds connect.
I walk alone,
She sleeps in stone,
Never waking our minds connect.
In the night our minds connect,
and we are together again.

Sightings of the Spider Witch

There have been a slew of rumors going around that the Spider Witch has escaped from her prison and has made it to Earth.  There is no confirmation of this since contact cannot be made with Authora.  However, recent sightings of the Spider Witch in North America as far north as Louisville, KY at FandomFest, and as far south as Jackson, MS have been surfacing.  There is no real evidence of the Spider Witch being in any of these places but if anyone has any information or verification of these sightings please contact J L Mulvihill immediately. 

This is a very serious matter.  If the Spider has indeed escaped from her prison then she will no doubt be planning to make her way to Atlanta, GA to attend Dragon*Con.  There is no telling what her plans are and what evil she will lose upon the unsuspecting attendees of Dragon*Con but rest assured it will not be pretty.

The Spider Witch is a dangerous woman and must not be trifled with.  She has been known to be accompanied by the Arachne or for the lay person, fourteen-foot spiders with ravenous appetites.

The only picture we have of the Spider Witch is a drawing by the artist Charles Walter Jett, who risked his life in getting a glance at the witch in order to portray a very life-like portrait of her for the public awareness.

AWAKENED TO AMNESIA

Blackness faded from me as my mind began to feel,

silence slowly lifted as I found myself lying still.

I opened my eyes to a sky of dancing trees,


hearing the rhythm of my breath as it floated on a breeze.

Easing from initial shock I fell deep into confusion,

bearing witness to a monster was all but an illusion.

The truth exposed by a rapid beating of my heart,

left me fearful, lost, anxious, and alone in the dark.

Then I realized that monsters were not my only fear,

If I did not know me then no one would know I’m here.

My identity like the leaves fluttered away on the wind,

I had no where to start, and no where to begin.

Yet I breathed deep this luxury of life,

and painfully arose ready to take stride.

Seeking out what rightfully should be mine,

drawing closer to my fate and accepting what I find.

And the story goes...


Locked deep within a lost girl’s mind are haunting dreams, and childhood memories that hold the key to her survival. This is the beginning of the battle of her life, the struggle to claim her identity. However, bad choices and trusting in the wrong sort of guidance put her in a position where she is a criminal on the run. Now in this medieval land where magic influences technology and beings of folklore are as real as the demons they fight, an ancient threat endangers the entire land. The struggle of identity not only influences a lost girl but two brothers conflicting with their own character flaws and dislike for each other. Between these three unlikely companions an evil must be stopped before its power gains strength and takes hold of Authora and . . .


The Lost Daughter of Easa.

 The Lost Daughter of Easa is a young adult fantasy/sci-fi novel that brings back the classic fantasy genre while incorporating forgotten folklore from a primarily Nordic and Celtic history. A Wizard of Earth Sea meets a Wrinkle in Time, this novel appeals to young adults as well as adults.

IMAGICOPTER


http://www.imagicopter.com


In 2009, a group of writers got together and decided to work toward promoting their own publications while lending a hand to other writers and artists. From that came Imagicopter. "Imagicopter" is the umbrella name for the tour currently supported by authors whose works have appeared in Kerlak publishing, Meadowhawk Press, Seventh Star Press, Twilight Times Books, Third Axe Media and Sam's Dot Publishing and by Word Catchers of Memphis. With the cooperation of several small press publishers, local authors, artists, and booksellers, the project soon took off. This is a totally voluntary organization. Participation on the site, at the events, and at the conventions we attend is completely voluntary.

J L Mulvihill is one of the representative for the Jackson Tower of Imagicopter. Alexander S. Brown and J L Mulvihill are responsible for planning and coordinating events for local and Midsouth Authors in Jackson, Mississippi and the surrounding area.
