Hello everyone! How are you guys doing? I know everyone has been (hopefully) self-distancing for the whole C-word virus. But I have some good news I wanted to share. This week I got my personal book copies! *YAY!* So I’ve been rereading my books as I’ve been staying home.
Now with the C-word happening and spreading in the US, I will be doing the rest of this college semester back at home. So I may be uploading blogs more than usual. Another thing is that I’ve been doing book photoshoots, as promotional pictures and advertisements. Stay tuned for those photos on my blog and social media.
My book blog tours have already begun too. I started a tour for each book, about a week apart. I’ll be posting about it in the future after it has finished. This is my first time doing any type of book blog touring, and so far it has been going great. My second book, Descendants of Time and Death, already has 5-star reviews on Goodreads and Amazon. I was so happy and excited for what is to come.
Oh, and book three is already in the works, so expect blogs about it too. Well, that is all I have for this Friday. I hope everyone is staying healthy, safe, and protected. I love you all and have a great weekend. And remember, live, love, and laugh!

About the Author: Amanda Ross is an indie author who writes speculative fiction that tackles social issues through magical, witchy tales with a little bit of politics and a whole lot of campy humor.

She is currently working on its sequel, To Ilaris, In Desperation, as well as a short story for the fantasy anthology, Girls of Might and Magic, to be published in the summer of 2021. When she’s not writing, Amanda is reading, baking, or walking along the beach. What and when started your love for writing? It was a combination of playing with Barbie Dolls and getting told bedtime stories from my dad, who was an excellent world-builder. When I became a teen, I realized writing could be an outlet for all the emotions I was feeling. Writing became my therapy and my greatest passion. Of all of the book genres, what drew you […]
- Happy Birthday Child of Tempus!Hey everyone! It’s Child of Tempus‘ 2nd Birthday!!! I can’t believe two years have passed since publishing my book. I had NO idea what I was doing but, I’ve been able to learn and grow from so many in the writing and indie author community. And I thank you all! I wasn’t able to do something big this year for Tempus’ terrible two’s but I hope next year I will be (*wink wink*) Since CoT’s release, I have released two other books apart of my YA fantasy series, The Gods’ Scion. CoT even got its book cover revamped, which I totally love! I have been able to grow as a writer from the countless feedback and reviews I’ve received for my book over the years. And though I know CoT isn’t perfect and has its flaws, it’s my baby and will always have a special place in my heart. Child of Tempus laid the groundwork for all my books to come, and I believe things will get better as I continue to write and release new books. Without CoT I wouldn’t have started this blog and had met all of you, so I owe it to CoT for all the […]
