Tournament of Chance
In Tournament of Chance, a hunter’s daughter becomes the spark that ignites a revolution—in time.
When a beautiful commoner enters the Tournament of Chance archery competition, her thwarted victory sparks a revolution in the oppressive kingdom of Destiny. Although Heather never believed the legends about the restoration of Ormaria, after three shape-shifting Ormarian wizards awaken from a long magical slumber, she joins their perilous quest to regain the throne. Heather battles vicious predators and angry trolls to free the wizards’ magic, but at a horrendous cost. She is unexpectedly torn from the arms of the man she loves and hurled back in time to fulfill a prophecy not yet written. The ensuing maelstrom tests Heather’s survival skills, wits, and endurance. Will she become an unwritten footnote in history, or can she trust the magic to lead her back to her one true love?

S.G. Rogers/Tournament of Chance What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published writer?
My advice is would-be authors is to get into a critique group that meets weekly, bring in five pages, read it out loud, and prepare for feedback. It’s important to develop a thick skin early on! You have to understand that even it you love what you wrote, it may not go over the way you intend, or convey what you meant to say. Join a site such as Duotrope.com to learn where to submit your work. Duotrope also helps you keep track of your submissions. Finally, start early to build your audience any way you can.
What was the hardest part to write in Tournament of Chance?
I think I agonized over the scenes between Heather and Dane a great deal. As these two characters interact, I wanted to show a building attraction without going too far, too soon. Developing these interactions was actually quite a delicate process, often involving small changes like switching out one word for another, or inserting a reaction shot. It was also challenging because in Tournament, neither character truly knows exactly how she or he feels until it happens. That kind of moment-by-moment scene takes a lot of effort to get right, but can be very rewarding to finish. ~ S.G. Rogers
