About

The Chronicles of Royal High Series Overview

>>> The teenage royalty of Edenarth must enroll in nobility finishing school Royal High before they can take their respective thrones as rulers of their realms. But an ancient race of dangerous Dragons are vying to come back into power, and these royal teens soon realize that they must revive the Order of the Paladin to stop them (all while attending Royal High).

The Chronicles of Royal High: The Lost Noble (Book One)

>>> With her peasant life stripped away, and a crown thrust upon her, Adella Everheart must face the darkness haunting her at Royal High before it consumes everything she loves. Who would have thought high school could be so easy?

The Chronicles of Royal High: Dragon's Wrath (Book Two)

>>> With a foreign crown she has begun to embrace, and alliances she must honor, Adella Everheart finds herself in a race against time to save her friends at Royal High from an ancient, fiery evil. If vengeance is a dish best served cold, then why is the wrath of a Dragon so hot?

My Journey

In early 2018, I launched the first installment of my YA Fantasy genre book series, The Chronicles of Royal High: The Lost Noble. Up until that point, I had spent 13 years developing this world that I had dreamed up as a young teen, and through a series of life changing events that spurred me on, I was given the gumption to self finance the first book and self publish it for print through Amazon in February 2018 (just in time to debut the first copies at Long Beach Comic Expo in California). Since then, I have been in an amazing whirlwind of a journey, touring and signing this first book at countless conventions, festivals, and renaissance faires, meeting fans all over, and almost always running out of copies at every event.   

The Chronicles of Royal High has created the most engaging and supportive fanbase, and I am overwhelmed with how many people count themselves as a part of #TheCORH fandom. It is beyond humbling to see how eagerly this second book is awaited, with dear fans often checking back for progress reports on its release.

This has all led to a wonderful problem - the demand for book two, The Chronicles of Royal High: Dragon's Wrath, is VERY real, and I cannot quite order as many copies as I would need to fill and launch some book orders!

And that's where you guys come in!

By backing your copy of The Chronicles of Royal High: Dragon's Wrath here on kickstarter, you'll essentially be pre-ordering your copy and having it mailed directly to you when the time comes (signed personally with lots of love). I want to give everyone who has supported and believed in this series first dibs right here before I put this book out for the general public at my signing events/Amazon/Kindle.

And, if you're just now discovering The Chronicles of Royal High through this kickstarter, I'd like to send you a very warm welcome, and invite you to discover this awesome fantasy world which follows the journeys of the teenage kings and queens of Edenarth, and in how they become Paladins to fight a massive dragon invasion, all while attending Royal High School. 

(Below is a link to my website where you can read the full series synopsis!).

 If you've read my mission statement thus far, I'd like to close with this - if you told me that one day I would get to do what I do for a living, I would not have believed you. I did not dream I would become an author. I was just a geeky, fantasy obsessed 13 year old girl when I first thought of Adella Everheart, and I did not know that I was creating a world that would become these wonderful books one day (all I knew was that the doodles and scenes I created in my high school notebooks were an outlet for my boundless creativity and they inspired me deeply). This world became so incredibly real to me, and I saw that it made many friends and family members happy when I would share it with them. 

And in the summer of 2017 when they all encouraged me to run with this series, I RAN HARD. And in the year I have run this published marathon (because yes, this is a marathon), I have experienced the beginnings of The CORH phenomenon, and I can already see that it will be far, far bigger than myself one day. I have no words to describe the depths of my gratefulness for this, and I only hope that I'll be able to continue to add to the great joy that The Lost Noble has given many readers across the world.

So cheers to Dragon's Wrath, and cheers to the adventures of those plucky noble kids from Royal High. ;)
