Felton, DE – August 13, 2015 – In this first book, in a growing series, the characters come to life dealing with everyday issues to which both girls and boys can relate.
In Adventures of Princess Janai and the Warrior Maidens of Quinu: The Cities of Tonga and Tongia, (USD $9.50 self published), author Sherel Ott has developed a background story of the Goddess and the High Priestess to allow the readers to see that even the Gods have emotions and problems that sometimes they are helpless to change or alter. That they too have to learn lessons and persevere in order to live and grow into better and stronger people.
“Trying to be a normal 12 year old is going to be hard but Janai is certainly going to try,” says Ott of her main character. “Being the Princess and having to compete to become a Warrior Maiden is just the beginning of her problems. Looks like someone tried to kill her but got her guards instead. Now she and a small party must travel to a city from which few people escape and return with a special flower to save her guards. Did I mention it all has to happen within 24 hours or they become trapped forever? Like I said… just a normal 12 year old.”
An eclectic collector of animation movies, Sherel Ott is a writer of fantasy and romance stories. One day while watching an animated movie, she noticed that there weren’t a lot of movies or books with girls of color in leading roles… as heroines, adventurers or with strong moral characters and wondered… Where were the influential leaders, doctors, lawyers or royalty of color? Why weren’t there any strong black female characters where a girl of color could be proud of her skin color and the type of person representing her and say… “I want to be like her!” She wanted to show that there are black princesses, warriors, and adventurers of all walks of life. That she should be and can be recognized for what she does and who her true self is, and to not be prejudged by the color of her skin.
Adventures of Princess Janai and the Warrior Maidens of Quinu: The Cities of Tonga and Tongia has received positive reviews. “It was an exciting fantasy! Great for children and adults.”
Ott is on a ten day virtual book blog tour beginning on Monday, August 10th and ending on Friday, August 21st, 2015 organized by Book Marketing Services, http://www.bookmarketingservices.org
