Spell of Entrapment - A Guest Post by Jeffrey Beesler


Thanks for hosting me today, Bryan! I have to admit that it’s been such a strange journey for me as a writer. I’ve spent the past five years learning everything I could to incorporate into my stories. As a result, I’ve come a long way in identifying the skills I have and those I need to work on to better tell a story.


But the road I’ve taken has not exactly been a straight one. Constant curves down the way have tried to throw me for a loop. This is especially true in the querying process. My projects thus far have had their share of bumps and bruises in the form of rejection. It comes with the territory, especially if I intend to stick with traditional publishing.

And I still do. I really want to see my books in print, to be able to enjoy that fresh, new book smell that you can only get from a traditionally-printed book. I do have a novel with a small press publisher, so that helps. I’ll certainly let you all know when that one becomes available.

On the other hand, digital self-publishing has entered into the equation while I’ve bided my time chasing after traditional publishing. Through digital, I’m able to get my content to my readers much sooner. Heaven knows more than a handful of them have been chomping at the bit to sink their teeth into my stories. I can’t keep denying my readers forever, now can I? Just by changing my plans around a little, I’m able to boost myself further ahead in the game. The fact that several people have already expressed how much they love my story is proof enough that my gamble has paid off.

Jeffrey Beesler is the author of Spell of Entrapment, and he has had a short fantasy story published in Abandoned Towers #4, The Broken Pipes of Drei City. He is a graduate of the LongRidge Writers Group correspondence course, Breaking into Print. His book can be purchased here:

Blurb:

When a knight, Sir Patrew of Trava, infiltrates sorceress Embekah Mare’s home, a magical backlash renders her unconscious. She awakens to discover a spell of entrapment binding them both inside the manor’s walls. Now forced to live with him after twenty years of solitude and exile, she must navigate her way through alternating feelings of distrust and attraction.

As the weeks pass with no end in sight of the hex, a shape-shifting spirit arrives inside the magical barrier’s walls to target Embekah specifically. When she seeks out Patrew’s help against this new threat, she uncovers a secret in his past that could very well destroy her future. With the help of her trusty toad Halscrad, Embekah must see through the deceit and find something long lost to her.

But not everything is as it seems. With lies all around her, Embekah finds the truth to be more elusive than the freedom right outside her manor. Can she survive long enough to figure out what’s real and what isn’t?

And thanks to Jeffrey for guest posting!

Matthew MacNish said...

Jeff looks so gangster in that photo. Kidnap county.

D.G. Hudson said...

I like that cover, and the book sounds interesting. Although the guy(Jeff?) in the pic seems either sleepy or frustrated (by traffic? or life?).

Thanks for sharing, Bryan and Jeffrey.

Jeffrey Beesler said...

Bryan: Thanks for hosting me!

Matthew: Guess the legend of Kidnap County has not escaped your knowledge base!

D.G: I was actually shooting for my expression to not come across as being goofy, but it may have gone just a little too far in the exact opposite direction.

Susan Oloier said...

Thanks for sharing your journey as a writer. I think there's a place for both Indie and traditional publishing, too.
Congrats on the release!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Yes, and we are still waiting on that book with the small publisher, especially knowing you have many more planned in that series!

Jeffrey Beesler said...

Susan: Glad you're enjoying the journey!

Alex: Actually, it's more like many more already written...

M Pax said...

It's the decision I made, too, Jeffrey. If I have to build an audience anyway, I might as well do it that way.

Waving at Bryan.

I liked the line someone quoted at Amazon, where the sorceress says, "...stay for a spell."

Also, about the cover - was that shot by moonlight, or just made to look that way? Definitely got the right spooky tone to it.

Donna Hole said...

A perfect post at a former bookstore owner :)

I still love a printed book too. I'll never give up my bulky bookcases no matter how much my sons protest about moving them.
