The Tier of Eternal Grace:
The Moon Clearing
by Tania Elizabeth

Today I introduce you to Tania Elizabeth, writer, fellow Aussie, and passionate advocate for the Starlight Children's Foundation, a charity dedicated to granting the wishes of terminally ill children. Please help Tania in her fundraising quest for this worth cause.

A Message from Tania Elizabeth

I am asking for everyone's assistance.

To give to others is to give to oneself, and I NEED YOUR HELP!!!

Help us to raise funds for the Starlight Children's Foundation, which supports terminally ill children and their families.

There are two ways in which people can help. It is very simple.

By simply hosting, reviewing or interviewing myself/my book via a blog post, Amazon, newspaper, radio, TV within a 21-day window frame, between the dates of 12 April and 3 May. For every appearance, I will be donating $1 to the Starlight Children's Foundation.

If any of you could help, I would be so grateful. If you could connect me with anyone else who would be happy to interview, do a short post or review on myself/my book, I would be ever so grateful.

I am also asking for donations, even $1, which you may do direct via this link:

You may also follow our progress on the Starlight Author's Aid Facebook Page.

We are looking at making this an annual event. This year it is based upon myself, though every year after, we will base it upon another upcoming author. So please share and pass this along to all. Let's make this a huge affair and raise much needed funds for a very worthy cause.

My heartfelt thanks to all.

Love, Blessings and Faerie Kisses always xo

I am a divine being of divine beauty and power.
My power lies in love, my strength I’ve gained from grace
I am grounded in thy truths and live purely of heart.

I’ve a gratitude for all life’s glory; never shall I be misplaced.

Though it comes to pass that I am rivaled
By the name of another and that of my own uncertainties,
dare I be denied my truths, my mind’s clear
By the name of another, I am now in jeopardy.

Beyond the boundary that separates the mundane and earthly planes from the divine lies Eterna Fadas, a place ruled by extraordinary beings, lithe and human-like in appearance, yet ethereal in their grace and beauty, and sensuous in nature.

"I have existed always! Where I began I do not know, for all I know is just as I am today!"

As Queen, Tatiana was thought to have lived a life of opulence, her faith and beliefs her endearing essence. Why then was it so, that beneath the picture of perfection laid torments and terrors even she dare not explain. Being She came with its prices paid. Being She came with a deal; a contract in which she was to relinquish herself to a rogue of unmerciful fury. Would this be the end of all she know? Would this be the end of her existence?

Book Trailer

Crystabella had never seen him so vulnerable. She had never seen or felt such sincere looks of gratitude and love from him. So although she despised that he was under so much pain, she relished his innocence. He sincerely needed her for the first time ever . . . not the other way around.
That was to be the last she had seen of him before she was to hear the every detail from the night of the Moon Clearing, including Edan’s true intentions regarding herself.
It was then that Crystabella snapped herself out of the senseless dream she had now been living for so long.
“Do you see now Tatiana? Why it is I apologize! Why I must redeem myself!”
Tatiana took a deep breath so as to gather her thoughts before answering.
“My beautiful Crysa, you have absolutely no reason to apologize for following your heart. If anything, I am proud of you!”
Crystabella looked at Tatiana so confound.
“How is it that you can be so proud of me when I have gone against all our beliefs? I have disregarded myself, our kind and you; not just as our Queen, but as my friend!”
“But don’t you see, you have done no such thing! You have unfortunately been misled at times, but there was not one moment where your best intentions were not apparent.”
Making sure the following comment was heard evidently clear, Tatiana paused before speaking with conviction.
“Your heart was always in the right place even if it was in the wrong place!”
“How could I ever be ill tempered at you for that? I can’t!”
Crystabella would continue to fight with her percipient choices of mind versus heart. Her mind would try to deceive her, have her believe that she was not worthy. Though her heart, her soul knew better. She was worthy and deserving of more than she had allowed herself to acknowledge in a long time.

A Devine tale of magic and mysticism, of love and lust, of loyalty and deception, of endearing friendships and betrayals, Tania Elizabeth's debut, must read tale The Moon Clearing is sure to enrapture the hearts and minds of readers of all genres. Set in the beautifully depicted faerie realm Eterna Fadas, mother earth is both the splendid scenery and an integral character of the story, vivid depictions of the magic and wonder that abounds our existence are plentiful. Queen Tatiana's story is not unlike our own life's journeys as she faces and overcomes obstacles and obligations, experiences heartache and joyful splendor, relishes in admirable friendships and battles her ego mind as she encounters a tortured soul whose inner turmoil wrecks havoc on her own existence and that of her devoted people. Through the entwined lives of these stunning, enchanted beings you will become lost within a world of magic and of faith, where beauty abounds and a deep seeded belief that love prevails is prevalent throughout. You will become enthralled by their stories and find yourself deeply invested in these characters, consumed with all that they are, feeling as they do, absorbed by both the beauty of Tania Elizabeth's writing and the underlying message that seen or unseen, love, magic and faith in oneself are contained in the hearts of us all should we simply choose to trust in ourselves. I found myself getting lost in this story, only ever putting it down to savor in the anticipation and the enchantment of Tatiana's fate. I have been left hungry for the second installment and I am certain you will be too.

Interview With the Author
Hi Tania Eizabeth, thanks for joining me today to discuss your new book The Tier of Eternal Grace, Book One: The Moon Clearing.

Which writers have influenced you the most?
To begin with, I would have to name Enid Blyton. For it was her books, The Magic Faraway Tree and The Adventures of the Wishing Chair in which had me lost in the fantasy worlds as a child. The classical and poetic writings of William Shakespeare. And, Florence Scovel Shinn, who wrote the book in which was the catalyst for my own journey of self love and discovery.

What age group do you recommend your book for?
The glory of The Tier of Eternal Grace is that it is for all ages from late teens through to that of the older generations.

What sparked the idea for this book?
My ideas arose from the desire to write a book that not only enabled the reader to delve into an enchanting realm of magic, love, betrayal, deceit, every emotion under the sun. But that also had the reader begin a journey of self discovery and to learn to love oneself within. As for the faeries, I have had an avid interest in faeries ever since I was a child.

Which comes first? The character's story or the idea for the novel?
In the case of The Tier of Eternal Grace, I have to actually say that is was a mixture of both elements arising all at the same time.

What was the hardest part to write in this book?
The very deep disturbing emotional elements were most definitely the hardest, as much of my book relates to that of my own life in one way or another. Thus it unearthed particular moments in my life that I had pushed beneath the carpet so to speak. Though in the same breath, I am grateful. For it is through the writing of this book in which I have healed and found my true self once more.

How to you hope this book affects its readers?
To live and breathe in the words of Tatiana and her people. To learn a greater respect for that of Mother Earth and that of oneself. And to simply loose themselves in the enchantment and the magic of each page they cast their eyes upon.

How long did it take you to write this book?
11 months in total.

What is your writing routine?
Most of my writing is done in the darkness of the night skies. For as a single mother of three beautiful children, my days are full running around after them. Once they are in bed ... give this girl a cup of coffee and my chocolate, and I am set for another long night of writing.

How did you get your book published?
I am self-published. I had long made the choice to self-publish, for I was not willing to lose any control when it came to how my book was to be perceived and read by the public.  Not to say that my thought on this would not change. I just knew that this was the right decision at the time for myself.

What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published writer?
First and foremost, Believe! Do not allow doubt and fear to become one's friend.

What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Ahh ... that’s easy. Spend quality time with my angels. Be it at the beach, hiking the mountains or snuggled up on the couch watching a movie. Perfection lays best when my babies are at my side.

What does your family think of your writing?
They are incredibly supportive and love all of my work.

Did you enjoy school?
Yes, very much so. I was at times an outcast, though I loved it all the same. I seem to now flourish in being different. I love it ... just as I love my life!

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
It has always been a dream, though it was not until I had come to a place of pure contentment with oneself and learnt the true meaning of I Love Me, that I gained the courage to pursue my dreams.

Did your childhood experiences influence your writing?
Yes, many of my weekends were spent in the countryside and the rainforests of Far North Queensland by the Great Barrier Reef, where I would lose myself in my imagination along with my siblings and cousins in abundance. My father, Lionel, also began to enlighten me on how to meditate and understand the sagacity of energy. Thus, my growth into the spiritual world.

What was your favorite book as a child?
The very same books that inspired me and began my love of fantasy ... Enid Blyton’s The Magic Tree and The Adventures of the Wishing Chair. Mind you, I also loved, The Sleepover Club series. Once a teenager, I found myself delving into poetry book after poetry book.

Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
I have had some beautiful comments and reviews made. I like to stay well connected to my readers as much as possible.

What can we look forward to from you in the future?
The second and third installment to The Tier of Eternal Grace series. From there, the world is my oyster J

Thanks for joining me today, Tania. I wish you every success with your writing and in your fundraising endeavors.

About the Author
Like each and every one of us, Tania's journey has been one of trials and tribulations, of Love and of passions; and the dissolutions of it. Heartache, sorrows, smiles and laughter always seeming. Through the writing of this book and the words of Tatiana, Tania has found a peace within and learnt the true meaning of 'I LOVE ME!'"
Tania Elizabeth is the author of The Tier of Eternal Grace. Book One, The Moon Clearing, was released earlier this year. Book Two, The Mirror's Shadow, will be released about September. Book Three will then follow in the early part of 2014.
Aside from her writing and her three angels, Tania is also an advocate for the Starlight Children's Foundation. Being a mother herself and having seen firsthand what some of these children are dealt with on a day to day basis, and yet seeing the strength and courage they each maintain, Tania felt the need to not only donate her time, but to also help raise much needed funds.
