With our fall season currently in full-swing, our authors here at The Parliament House have garnered a number of recent successes. (Congratulations to Chantal Gadoury for recently becoming an Amazon Bestselling Author and selling over 100 copies of "Allerleirauh" in its first week!) After the recent release of Wildwood by Jadie Jones and with the release of Blue Bottle Tree right around the corner, we are excited by our quickly-expanding family!
And now we get to add an award-winning author to our band of awesome and creative misfits!
The Parliament House is thrilled to announce the acquisition of M. Dalto's Watty-Award-Winning (Wattpad Award) debut novel TWO THOUSAND YEARS, which will release toward the end of 2018!
Two thousand years ago, the Prophecy of Fire and Light foretold the coming of the Queen Empress who would lead the Empire through a time of peace and tranquility. But instead of the coming of a prosperous world, a forbidden love for the Empress waged a war that ravaged the land, creating a chasm between the factions, raising the death toll of innocent lives until the final, bloody battle.
Centuries later, Alexandra, a twenty-two-year-old woman living on her own in Boston, is taken to an unfamiliar realm of mystery and magic where her life is threatened by Reylor, its banished Lord Steward. She crosses paths with Treyan, the arrogant and seductive Crown Prince of the Empire, and together they discover how their lives, and their love, are so intricately intertwined by a Prophecy set in motion so many years ago.
Now Alex, the predestined Queen Empress Alexstrayna, whose arrival was foretold by the Annals of the Empire, has the fate of her new home resting upon her as war rages between its Crown Prince and the Lord Steward. Each choice could have the potential to tear her world apart as she attempts to keep the Empire’s torrid history from repeating itself. In a world where betrayal and revenge will be as crucial to her survival as love and honor, Alex must discover whether it is her choice - or her fate - that determines how she survives the Empire’s rising conflicts.
M. Dalto has been writing recreationally for a good portion of her creative life, be it journal entries, blog posts, or 50,000- word count goals for NaNoWriMo. Having received her B.A. in Legal Studies from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, she spends her days as a full-time residential real estate paralegal. She has been a Featured Writer on Wattpad.com and her story, TWO THOUSAND YEARS, has since won the website’s coveted Watty Award in 2016. She has also participated as a Wattpad Ambassador since April, 2017, where she continues to help new writers take steps towards achieving their writing goals just as she had when she first began.
When she’s not writing, M. Dalto enjoys reading fantasy novels, playing video games, practicing yoga, and drinking coffee. As a Ravenclaw, she hails to House Targaryen while living in the Night Court. She currently lives in Braintree, MA, with her husband, their daughter, and their corgi named Loki.
