Where does Michael A. Rothman Write + Kindle Giveaway (Heirs of Prophecy Tour)

Where you are Writing?

Really?  You truly want to know about my writing space?  Okay, you asked for it.
Since I seem to find time to write, take notes, or do this type of activity almost anywhere I am sedentary for more than a couple minutes, there are lots of possible locations where this can happen.
That being said, I have captured a couple of the more “productive” locations I have spent time at for your amusement.

In the front yard, where my wife’s rosebushes are. And no, the young lady who is reading HEIRS OF PROPHECY is not my wife, nor do I have a daughter. J
This is a picture of my spot on the bed. Admittedly it seems to be occupied at the moment, but trust me – lots of my writing has happened from that nightstand with my laptop.
The cat is sitting on the table in my kitchen, and yes – he is the model for the cat “Silver” that is pictured on the back cover of HEIRS OF PROPHECY. I have spent an inordinate amount of time writing on the kitchen table.
The chair on the left is often occupied by my derriere during the summer and I bring the laptop out there and write quite a bit. Admittedly, the picture I am showing you was soon after an ice storm, but just picture lots more green and lots more sun.

And last but not least – most authors probably won’t admit it, but with the availability of smartphones with the ability to hack in notes to self or laptops, many have likely sat here and typed up good portions of their novels.  (I will note that the cat is usually not in the location grabbing a drink though.)

I hope you enjoyed the quick tour through a variety of my writing locations.

About Heirs of Prophecy  - Goodreads | Amazon | IndieBound | B&N

The Riverton family had been enjoying a simple summer vacation when, through a fluke of nature, they found themselves in a strange new land.

The Riverton brothers quickly realize that in this world, they have gained unusual powers. Powers that their parents fear will attract the attention of Azazel himself - the merciless wizard who brutally controls this world.

The two brothers soon learn that an ancient prophecy has finally been initiated by their arrival in Trimoria. As the heirs of this prophecy, they are destined to lead the armies of men, dwarves, elves, and even a misfit ogre against the prophesied demon horde.

Only one thing stands in their way.

The evil wizard who has learned of their presence, and has sent assassins to wipe them from existence.

Tools of Prophecy:
Book II in the Prophecies series

The TOOLS OF PROPHECY is the second volume in an epic saga which describes a prophecy that has placed the Riverton brothers in the lead roles of a struggle to save their world from being overrun by unspeakable horrors. This destiny requires that they face off with the demons that nearly destroyed their world over five centuries ago.

In the first book, the population of wizards had been practically eradicated by the former tyrant. The Rivertons are now charged with creating an Academy of Magic, recruiting qualified students, and furthering their own training with secrets that have long been held by the reclusive elves.

Despite their youth, a mysterious spirit has engaged them in an epic struggle to gain mastery of their newfound skills, help raise and train two armies, and stay alive long enough for their final showdown with destiny.

The only things that stand in their way are the assassins hired to destroy them and the Demon Lord’s minion who holds a personal grudge and intends to witness the young boys’ deaths.

About Michael Rothman - Website  | Goodreads | Twitter | Facebook

I am an Army brat and the first person in my family to be born in the United States. This heavily influenced my youth by instilling a love of reading and a burning curiosity about the world and all of the things within it. As an adult, my love of travel allowed me to explore many unimaginable locations. I participated in many adventures and documented them in what will be a series of books, the first of which you have just read.

Some might put these books in the Fantasy genre, and I never had issues with this label. After all, the adventures were, without any doubt in my mind, fantastic. I simply quibble with the label of "Fiction" that some might put on these tales. These tales should be viewed as historical records, more along the lines of a documentary.

I've learned one thing over the years. Magic is real. Keep exploring, and you too will find your magic.
