We're launching the Book Tour for THE THIEF'S RELIC by Angela Knotts Morse

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Author Interview

What inspired you to write The Thief's Relic?

I was actually inspired by a Celtic Music album way back in 2015. The first song is called "For Eamonn," and that's where I got my main character's name. Many of the other song titles inspired different moments or aspects about the book. And, of course, Lord of the Rings helped inspire some of the worldbuilding because I just love it so much!

What do you love the most about this story?

One of the things I love most (because I'm not sure I can say with absolute certainty that it's my favorite!) is the relationship between Eamonn and Dorylss, his mentor. I love that Eamonn finds a real father, someone who is looking out for him and has his best interests at heart, but also loves to joke around with him and be a true friend to him.

What challenged you about writing it?

Oh, what didn't? Sometimes, just getting words down on the page was a struggle. One of the biggest challenges was revising the story. I wrote it over the course of several years beginning in 2016, so when I sat down to revise it last year, I had to change A LOT. I completely trashed chapters six through halfway through sixteen and rewrote them entirely differently, so that was a huge challenge.

Which character do you most relate to and why?

I think I relate the most to Dorylss, to be honest! I'm a pretty level headed person, a logical thinker, and I feel I have a steadying influence on the people I'm with. I'm also a loyal friend and would do just about anything to help the people I'm close to.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

I would just love it if readers enjoyed my book. If they enjoyed the story and the world I've created, and feel a sense of connection to any of my characters, then I'd be a happy soul.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

Most of the time I'm playing with my one and a half year old daughter, but I also love snuggling on the couch with my cat to watch a TV show or movie or read.

The Thief's Relic
(Son of Avaria #1)
By Angela Knotts Morse
Young Adult, Fantasy
Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 394 Pages
December 4, 2021 by An Encouraging Thought Publishers

Eamonn never wanted to be a thief. 
So when a risky mission goes awry and he receives the chance of a lifetime, he leaves behind everything, even his newfound family in the Thieves’ Guild, to pursue an apprenticeship as an honest merchant. 
Traveling the country means he sees and hears everything. Civil unrest, rebellions against the monarchies, and rumors of a usurper bent on uniting the provinces under himself with a mythical form of magic. Few suspect he’s not chasing a dead end, including village girl Leyna, a believer in the magic of ancient histories. Eamonn’s skeptical heart is also swayed once he finds himself the tyrant’s target, unknowingly possessing the key to harness the dangerous power. 
To protect it, Eamonn's only choice is to flee. But now that it’s the mission of his former brothers in the Guild to hunt him down, keeping magic out of their hands might be harder than either Leyna or Eamonn thought possible. If they fall, though, their world does too.

Though she has dabbled in a few genres, Angela’s favorite to write is Fantasy. Her audience is typically New Adult (NA) or sometimes Young Adult (YA), depending on the age and maturity of her characters and intended readers. Angela currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama with her husband, daughter, and cat.
