Novelist, Scholar K.L. Bone Infuses Her New
Four-Book Young Adult Fantasy Series with
Imaginative Realism, Conflict and Action
1888 Press Release - Combining her creative
writing experience and advanced graduate
education in literature, K.L. Bone proves to have
the unique skills for her highly imaginative and
compelling four-book young adult fantasy series,
beginning with the first book, Rise of the Temple
Gods Heir to Kale. The second book in the
series, Heir to Koloso, is scheduled for a fall
2014 release. Dublin, Ireland - This first book
introduces readers to the land of Kale where the
people are followers of one of 13 Temples. To
maintain the delicate balance of power in the
kingdom, tournaments of combat are held, from
which 60 champions are chosen to become
Defendants, or a joint team to protect Kale from
its enemies. Two of the Defendants, one an
adherent of the Temple of Kale and the other the
Temple of Koloso, become parents of twin
daughters, Princesses Mariana and Ameria. At the
age of 5, Mariana is taken to the Temple of Kale
and Ameria to the Temple of Koloso to learn the
arts of weaponry and hand-to-hand combat. Upon
their 17th birthday, the sisters learn they are
the central figures in an age-old prophecy that
will force them to fight to determine which will
be the next Queen of Kale. Powerful members of
the kingdom have their own agendas and secretly
initiate assassinations, armed attacks and other
disruptive events to influence which young woman
will win. Ms. Bone chose an educational path
that has thoroughly prepared her to bring a new
level of fictional quality to her adult science
fiction and young adult fantasy books. After
earning an undergraduate degree in English, she
attended the University of Hertfordshire in
England because of its special courses in vampire
literature where she received a MA in Modern
Literary Cultures based on her thesis about the
works of Anne Rice.

She is presently enrolled in Trinity College in
Dublin, Ireland, where she is working to complete
her PhD, writing her dissertation on children in
contemporary vampire fiction. "I discovered
during my undergraduate classes in creative
writing that speculative fiction was not
considered a serious genre, although it is what
interests me the most and the one genre where I
feel I can be most creative," said Bone. "I,
therefore, switched my studies to literature,
where I was free to study this genre of fiction,
leading to my master's thesis on Anne
Rice." "With my extensive scholastic study of
literature, I am confident that I have a clear
understanding of the elements that make
speculative fiction so popular and, with my
carefully developed creative writing skills, I
hope to be able to bring a depth of plot and
character that is often missing from this
genre." As her reputation as an expert in
speculative literature continues to grow, Ms.
Bone has become a sought-after speaker and
participant at many literary conferences and
events. Her current schedule includes
The Great Writers Conference in London, June
28-29, 2014, where she spoke about the value of
conducting research in the fiction writing
process and reading from one of her
novels. Researcher's Night at Trinity College
during September, where she will read excerpts
from one of her novels. The Undead Conference
in New Orleans at Halloween, which is an event
during the Anne Rice/Vampire Lestat Ball. Ms.
Bone will share her insights as an author on a
panel. K.L. Bone's first published work, The
Indoctrination, a science-fiction novel for a
mature audience, as well as the first and
subsequent books in the Kale series are available
on Amazon.
