Nancy Jeanabout this book: Enter the Human Realm is the first book in a series of the Tulip Sisters: four feary sisters born (from tulips, of course) at the exact same moment. The main characters: Etaura, the earth faery, Aiara the air faery, Fierre the fire faery and Wyshari, the water faery each reflect the appearance and magical powers of their element.
This book introduces the reader to the faeries with their first taste of adventure. The land on which their community resides is shared by a human. When their home is threatened, they must navigate the human world, survive a capture of one of their own and attempt to alter fate. The reader is not subject to the typical "hero rushes in at the last second to save the day." ending.
Anyone who has a reverence for nature, and the symbolism of the elements, and an interest in magical ideas will appreciate the themes woven throughout the book.
I first thought of this some time ago when I imagined a faery wrapping her wings around her and going to sleep inside of a tulip. What one simple idea can do: this has evolved into a five-book outline, each with independent stories but all connected to the finale.
I am sure I am in good company when I say I was inspired by, and learned so much from J.K. Rowling. I heard she took years planning the outlines of all the books before she started writing the Harry Potter Series. I can see how that benefits the reader; getting bits of pieces of information that grow into relevance as the series progresses. My goal is to do the same with each of the books in the series.
I had the picture in my mind about the cover fairly early. The Tulip Sisters all share a sparkling tribal design that spans from the top to bottom of their wings and that needed to be conveyed. The background is the city of Tampa, which also features in the book.
I am excited to share my work with the e-readers out there, and hope they enjoy the journey!
