Of Angels and Fairies – Mother (an excerpt)

Mother's Symbol

Of Angels and Fairies
Elizabeth Towne, NC, 1917
Mother
The pain is brief. It actually is a welcome relief from
the deeply embedded pain in my heart and soul.
This is so much quicker and easier than that horrendous
pain of losing my beloved. Why? What is the purpose
of his senseless death? So that one man can face
another, and get rid of his life so that he can feel more
powerful? Damn the war! How could death or murder
be justified on any level? The aftermath—unthinkable
pain. The aftermath—the eyes of my beloved in a new
divine form.

She comes forth, out of my body, out of my being,
an exquisite jewel, with eyes so clear, bright and full of
love, that I can hardly look. But I do and drink in every
part of her. I lovingly check out every inch, every tiny                                               fingernail, toe, every luscious curl on her perfect little
head. She is a gift so precious, that I feel honored by
God. I feel angels all around us, laughing in delight and
joy at the birth of this tiny miracle child.
As I look into her innocent, clear, blue eyes, I see
stars sparkling so bright, with the promise of incredible,
delicious delights. I notice out of the side of my vision
flitting creatures, flashes, as if on wings. I see round
bubbles of rainbows floating like precious jeweled drops
amongst the winged ones. They all seem to herald this
new treasure, my little treasure, created with love. I am
overjoyed by their presence.

I was brought up on stories of these “little people”
or fairies, mainly to keep me out of trouble, but I have
never really seen them. That I could not see them
was not acceptable or appreciated by my Ulster Scot
parents! In the old country of Ireland, the fairies or little
people were honored and respected. No one would dare
trespass into their fairy circles or build something on
top of their paths. Farmers often left treats for them
outside in return for favors and the hope that they
would protect their families. To sense them here with
me now, instills a joy so immense in my being, that I
feel as if my heart will burst with joy. And then I feel
pain. It is a searing dread that makes my heart painfully
clench and stop! No, no! It cannot be so!

Broken Stone: A Real Fairy’s Tale

By N. K. Hertz

Consumer Copy


It has been said that we should not know the future, as it could scare us to death!Little did Steffen know one ordinary day during an ordinary walk through the cemetery that his future was about to be profoundly changed! He did not know that she was waiting for him, beside her broken headstone. She called to him, with her siren song that only he could hear. Hypnotically, he followed the song to her forgotten, broken gravesite. Hackles rose on his neck as he contemplated her name and date: Fairy Bright Gordon, 1917-1934. Was this eerie feeling a premonition of things to come?

So begins the story in Broken Stone: A Real Fairy’s Tale. It tells the tale of a young woman in the early 1900’s that lived a short mysterious life. Someone needed to hear her story so that her early death would not have been in vain. That someone was Steffen, a modern day architect that frequently walked on his lunch hour as a quiet break from his stressed-filled days. Unsuspecting, he could not know that Fairy Bright would become his confidant, mentor and tormentor, turning his life upside down and inside out as he questioned all he thought he knew about himself, spirituality and the world. He could not be prepared for the extraordinary, bizarre turns this and other strange encounters would provoke, forcing either his enlightenment or early demise!

 

The Cover Reveal

It was SO thrilling to get the email that the book cover process was about to begin! Tate Publishers asked me thoughtful questions about my book, such as- What feeling do I want the reader to experience when they look at my book? What is the main focal point or message of the book? How did I come up with the title? And, are there any recurring images that flow throughout the story? I gave them my info and thoughts of what I pictured the cover would look like. And then waited. I went on a trip to Florida to visit friends  and anxiously waited a bit more.

Finally, the cover arrived via email. I was beside myself with joy, to see a rendition of the cover with my title and name and an image of Fairy Bright. What a fabulous cover the graphic designer created!  Wow! My project of three years was starting to feel real! But then, I started thinking. Was the cover a bit too dark? Did it feel too Gothic? Was it a good representation of Fairy Bright? Would it attract customers, and on and on. I will let you decide. Maybe I think too much?  I now reveal the first rendition of “Broken Stone: A Real Fairy’s Tale” cover.
