Thrusday Prompt: Out of body

This week we're going to give the imagination a good workout. We're challenging you to write about an out of body experience. Something happened, maybe an accident, a psychic power awakens, or other cause for this phenomenon but, suddenly you find yourself walking around in spirit form outside your body.

What would you do? Where would you go? Who would you see? Would you be mischievous, helpful, or just observe. Explore this idea in a flash fiction of at least 500 words.

The Untold Legend: The Warrior Queen a fantasy novel by Amy I. Long

The Untold Legend: The Warrior Queen written by author Amy I. Long is being released to readers and bookstores today from JLB Creatives Publishing.  In 2013 The Untold Legend: The Warrior Queen won the National Indie Excellence Award.

Amy was inspired by history to create this fantasy/romance. Boadicea (Boudica or Boudicca) was a queen of a Celtic tribe. She led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire. "I especially like strong, outspoken women of earlier days but little known in modern times. Perhaps that is what sparked my enthusiasm to write about my own queen.”

About The Untold Legend: The Warrior Queen
Voda of Monarch never once believed she would end up as a queen. Now she must choose a husband, but she cannot because her heart belongs to Keldrick, the king of the faraway land, Ameri. A marriage between these two would be unsuitable, almost impossible.

Voda is thrown into a dangerous situation and is rescued by her heart’s desire. But their forbidden passion for each other must be denied. Keldrick promises only one night of passion, then he separates himself from temptation. Voda, being a warrior, faces many battles that only bring her closer to her beloved Keldrick.

How dangerous could a marriage between these two desperate souls be? The two struggle through cruelties and war only to discover that, in the end, love conquers all in this untold legend.

Five Star Reviews for The Untold Legend: The Warrior Queen
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a powerful woman who can lead an army to conquest, but also has a heart for a bit of romance on the side. It's a good read.”

“I enjoyed this romance novel with its descriptive scenes woven with history. The lead character is a strong, outspoken female who lives up to the position she is thrown into. This is a very promising start for this first time published author and I look forward to reading her future endeavors.”

About Amy I. Long
Amy I. Long was raised in Sanford, Florida. She is working toward a bachelor's degree in molecular biology and hopes to apply that knowledge to the field of disease control. She loves watching sci-fi movies, reading historic romance novels, and studying history, medical botany, and astronomy.
