This is not a fable or folktale. It is not a book of poems or a legend of lore. “The Prince and Timberance” is an enchanting fairy tale set in a magnificent African kingdom of long, long ago.
The tale begins with a handsome prince whose life is tragically interrupted by a sorcerer’s evil daughter. Forced to leave his beloved kingdom, the prince’s life will be changed forever. As the story unfolds you will meet Timberance–a kind and beautiful African-American maiden. Fate will bring them together and turn tragedy into triumph.
Whether you read by candle light, or starlight, or a lamp on a nightstand turned low, it matters not. You are about to go on an unforgettable and wondrous journey.
“The Prince and Timberance” can be purchased on Amazon here.
Many years, and dreams, have brought us to this moment…
A moment where mother and daughter team up to bring a story written long ago, now in published form, to the public.
Many realize the importance of reading, and the hallmarks of children’s literature-which, yes, includes fairy tales. Many who treasure the magic and wonder inspired by fairy tales also believe that the only way to enjoy them is to cling to the well-known stories of the past, as that is the time when all great fairy tales were written…
Beauty and the Beast.
There stands a long list of inspiring stories that gripped the hearts of millions. Universal stories that transcend culture, time, and distance. And now, 2014′s newest addition to the genre…
The Prince and Timberance.
An African-American fairy tale. Originally written and copy written in 1993 by Ramona Omer. The revised version is targeted for print May 2014 at which time the first edition that has been featured at events such as the Phoenix Urban Expo and the Miss Black Arizona Mother and Daughter Tea will be phased out. Readers will appreciate the new cover design and page layout, as well as the expanded glossary. You can read an excerpt and purchase a copy, at it’s main home on Amazon. I will also feature excerpts on this blog in the near future.
This blog will be a welcoming room for readers who know, come to know, and love The Prince and Timberance. This will be a place where supporters can follow my mother and I on our journey to make our dreams come true-dreams of giving the world a wonderfully epic tale, which will fill a very real void in the world of representation and make believe. A fairy tale with a noble and handsome African prince and a beautiful maiden also of African descent; spanning from an enchanted and thriving kingdom to a quaint village; as well as a world where the strongest of magic is conjured, and the most mischievous of fairies reside. And of course, where only the magic of the truest love can undo the works of a powerful villain and set the world right again.
This blog is a platform to introduce you to the book, it’s author (my mother), and the many, many (almost infinite) dreams two women harbor for taking an inspired story and making their dreams come true. Dreams that don’t end simply with translating it to book form, but also sharing it with the world and seeing what the world makes of it!
While Amazon is mostly for the sale of the book, this blog will house all things related to the book, including commentary on what’s happening in the world that relates to our story. It is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to a place that connects you to the story The Prince and Timberance, where you can share in our dreams, and follow the enchanted journey of a story from conception to distribution.
