Fantasy, Lore, & More: Priestess of Herculaneum

Hi, I’m indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and in this episode L.L. Nelson is joining me to talk about her book, Priestess of Herculaneum.

What’s it about?

  • A historian gets more than she bargained for when she travels back in time to ancient Herculaneum in this exciting time travel adventure.

  • Priestess of Herculaneum is a fast-paced, character-driven time travel fantasy.

  • Set in ancient Herculaneum, Priestess of Herculaneum is an action-packed historical fantasy.

What’s in this episode:

  • L.L. Nelson will take us back in time to ancient Herculaneum with an excerpt from Priestess of Herculaneum, and we’ll explore aspects of that world, like the looming eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.

  • We’ll find out what supernatural forces are at play and maybe get some spoiler-free highlights of what’s to come.

  • We’ll discuss Alexandra's journey from modern historian to priestess trying to save a man she's never met.

  • Join us in a place where history comes alive, and the fate of Pompeii hangs in the balance.

About your host, Melinda Kucsera:

I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author who wrote and published 20+ books since 2016 across 6 series. I write epic fantasy adventures about families and magical creatures who’re just trying to survive in a world that hates and fears magic but is steeped in it.

My books are full of magic and mayhem, but somehow, even the darkest adventure always ends well. ⁠Join me⁠ every week for a new story.

What series do I write?

  • The Curse Breaker series chronicles the adventures of a reluctant mage (Sarn), his son, as they fight to save their underground city from monsters, ancient evils, and a variety of magical threats.

  • The His Angelic Keeper series follows a ghost girl who just wants to save her still-living family, not stop a demon invasion or the literal apocalypse, but she’ll do that too if she must.

  • The Robin of Larkspur series follows Robin, a woman who just wants to save her daughter from the mythical creatures that kidnapped her baby.

  • The Divergent Heroes series is supposed to star two knights who are partially disabled but a younger version of Sarn keeps stealing the scenes.

  • The Curse Breaker’s Companion series which includes side quests, wacky what ifs, and stories from my newsletter of Sarn and his family in our world because they won’t stay inside the epic fantasy books they star in.

  • The Rogue Gods Trilogy follows an ex-war god, a witch, and a fallen angel as they fight to save the world from a demon invasion and set the future back on the right course. Follow the Rogue Gods Kickstarter Campaign.

Epic Fantasy Adventures with Melinda Kucsera
I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author and I narrate chapters from my adventure books, talk about other fantasy books and shows and try my best not to get derailed by the shenanigans of characters who are supposed to be fictional, but they don't stay within the pages of my books. I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books. Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
