Blog Tour: Giveaway & Spotlight on Tallis by M.C. Rae

Tallis (Books of Andresium, #1)

       Tallis (Books of Andresium, #1)


The Empire of Andresium is threatened by the corruption of the immortals, ancient beings given the gift of eternal life after the death of the last reigning empress. A prophecy speaks of their eventual downfall at the hands of one of their own, however. Tallis is known by most simply as "The Loren," and seeks to avoid her destiny while trying herself to remain untainted by the decaying morals and indifference to the fates of men that plague her kind. As the events of the prophecy begin to unfold, Tallis finds herself conflicted between upholding her dedication to justice, and falling victim to the ramifications of following the desires of her own heart.

Paperback, 58 pages

About the author
History is Killian's primary love in life, outside her family and, yes, sadly her dog. Therefore, her works of fiction often are packaged inside historical wrappers, as she tugs and twists on the edges of reality to ask the ever-present "What if?"

Born and raised in rural Michigan, Killian used the local library- a single room in her village's firehouse- as an escape, before actually escaping to the relative jungle of Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan. There, after several minor attempts to establish a major, she finally completed a BA in Turkic History and nearly attempted a Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance. ("Theys call it the opry 'round these parts," she says in her heavy, Michiganian accent.)

Though she had written three novels before graduating high school, she never thought of trying to publish until well into her 30's. 12.21.12 was her first published work, released in late 2010. "A Love by Any Measure," a historical romance set in 1860's Ireland, was released in November 2011.

Killian is a member of Stanford University's Writer's Certificate program and a PRO member of the Romance Writers of America. Her other interests include musicology and did we mention history? She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay area, though she is quite often unhappy about this fact.

Killian also publishes YA works under the pen name M.C. Rae.

  1. I'm wondering if the 58 pages is a typo... It sounds great though!

  2. Yes, that's correct. TALLIS is a novella, and in print form only amounts to 58 pages. (It's roughly 18,000 words long.)

    Thanks for joining the tour, and for hosting this stop.

  3. This sounds like a great novella! Thanks Debbie and Killian for this great giveaway!!
