#Blogtour – Liars and Thieves Book Launch

Diana Peach is launching the first book, Liars and Thieves, in a new series and it sounds fantastic. Read on to find out more about it.


Behind the Veil, the hordes gather, eager to savage the world. But Kalann il Drakk, First of Chaos, is untroubled by the shimmering wall that holds his beasts at bay. For if he cannot cleanse the land of life, the races will do it for him. All he needs is a spark to light the fire.

Three unlikely allies stand in his way.

A misfit elf plagued by failure—

When Elanalue Windthorn abandons her soldiers to hunt a goblin, she strays into forbidden territory.

A changeling who betrays his home—

Talin Raska is a talented liar, thief, and spy. He makes a fatal mistake—he falls for his mark.

A halfbreed goblin with deadly secrets—

Naj’ar is a loner with a talent he doesn’t understand and cannot control, one that threatens all he holds dear.

When the spark of Chaos ignites, miners go missing. But they won’t be the last to vanish. As the cycles of blame whirl through the Borderland, old animosities flare, accusations break bonds, and war looms.

Three outcasts, thrust into an alliance by fate, by oaths, and the churning gears of calamity, must learn the truth. For they hold the future of their world in their hands.


What kind of magical skills do the elves in your story possess?

The magic in my book is all kinetic, meaning motion/movement. Just like all people have areas where they excel and areas where they don’t, elves have a range of kinetic abilities, usually one, sometimes two, and rarely three, depending on the person. Kinetic skills vary in strength too.

Different types of elfin kinesis:

Photokinesis – the ability to can create, shape, and generally manipulate visible light, Alue can create small globes of light. Her skill is great for exploring tunnels and caves.

Pyrokinesis – the ability to create globes of fire. Good for… starting fires. Pyrokinetics create, control and manipulate fire and heat by speeding up the energy to the point of combustion.

Hydrokinesis – the ability to manipulate and control water in all its forms by altering its molecular state. Naj, my half-goblin/half-elf is hydrokinetic and can draw water from the ground or control its movement.

Telekinesis – the ability to move objects with the mind. Telekinesis is based on the principle that we all are made of the same energy, so we could simply connect with whatever we are trying to move. Telekinetic individuals can join together to life heavy objects.

Diana lives in a log cabin amongst the tall evergreens and emerald moss of Oregon’s rainforest with her husband, two dogs, bats, owls, and the occasional family of coyotes.

      1. Fancy meeting you here. 😎 One of the similarities between my previous life as an educator and my present life in the indie community is they are both filled with supportive people.

    1. Thanks, Pam. I’d like to have the telekinetic power – just sit on my couch and vacuum by waving my hand around. Lol. Snap my fingers and the toilet’s clean. 🙂 Unfortunately for my elfin character, she’s not that talented. I’m so happy you stopped by. Have a wonderful Friday and weekend, my friend. ❤ ❤

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comment, Amy. It was fun to share a bit of the world building behind the scenes. The explanations don’t show up in the book, but the talents are there in the background. Have a great Friday and wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks for the great comment, Balroop. It’s not much of a focus in the book, but it is part of the world-building behind the scenes. A challenging part of world-building is creating these deep worlds, but only including what’s necessary in the story. To share all the background would be boring indeed, but bits of all these talents come up now and then throughout the series. Loved your comment. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your review. I was thrilled!

  3. I love to have strong telekinesis, Diana. I think you’re right that people have these unusual abilities. I had read about a child got run over by a car and the mother had an unusual strength to lift up the car and got her child from under.
    Great blog tour going on. Thank you for hosting, Robbie!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by, Miriam. Robbie and I were joking about using our telekinetic abilities to get the housework done. 🙂 I’ve heard of people developing amazing strength when in an emergency situation. I have no idea how that happens, but it doesn’t surprise me. There is more to the world than we think! Have a wonderful weekend, my friend. 🙂

    1. Hi, Olga. A few of us decided that telekinesis would be a good talent since it would be useful for housework. We could sit on the couch and vacuum at the same time. 🙂 Lol. Thanks so much for the visit and for cheering on the book. Have a wonderful week!
