FROM FANTASY AUTHOR NANCY HANSEN COMES PROPHECY’S GAMBIT- THE SEQUEL TO FORTUNE’S PAWN, HER DYNAMIC DEBUT NOVEL! Left to pick up the pieces of a life in upheaval after her harrowing adventures in FORTUNE’S PAWN, young Callie makes a disconcerting discovery: she is carrying the child of a clandestine and forbidden union. While the mundane existence of a barmaid in a frontier town holds its own challenges, the world around her is realigning in a most sinister and dangerous way. Calculating eyes, benevolent and malicious, are now turned in her direction; and Callie finds herself in the midst of ever increasing intrigue to control her destiny. Will this headstrong and courageous young woman—who has within her the spark of life that could bring together a diverse legion of defenders—survive long enough to carry this pregnancy to term? Or will Callie forfeit her place in legend and history to protect the shameful secret of her unborn child’s heritage and unknowingly sacrifice everyone else’s hopes and dreams in the process? Find out in PROPHECY'S GAMBIT by Nancy Hansen!
In a time of upheaval, where magick and religion often collide, those who keep the old ways are increasingly shunned and ridiculed. The Vagabond Bards, a dedicated group of musicians, singers, actors, poets, and teachers of the unwritten oral folklore of the Terran Worlds, are finding themselves coming under pressure to disband or face probable imprisonment—even death. For generations these roving men and women have spread throughout the population, dedicating their lives to educating and assisting their fellow Humans while recording and preserving their knowledge and experiences, making sure the tales of the past are kept alive throughout the mostly illiterate masses. Sworn to Understand, Love, and Keep the Truth, they now face strong opposition from the upstart religion of Helios the Sun God, whose belief is sweeping the countryside, rewriting history and changing views of the past in the most alarming manner. These are the tales of those heroic troubadours, who fight for justice not with weapons, but with words. From Fantasy Author Nancy Hansen!

When the northern frontier of a world in upheaval most needed a champion, a champion arrived-- a short statured, buxom woman with piercing green eyes, a sizable streak of stubbornness, and a determined spirit that refused to accept defeat. Roshanna the Huntress is the warder of enchanted Greenwood, both a wanted outlaw and staunch defender of all good beings. With bloodlines of Elf, Dwarf, and Human coursing in her veins, she tirelessly treks the forest and countryside, bow over her shoulder and knife at her hip, struggling to maintain an uneasy peace while fighting to keep the creations of a Dark God at bay. Acclaimed Author Nancy Hansen and her own Pro Se imprint, Hansen's Way, present 'THE HUNTRESS OF GREENWOOD', a collection of thrilling tales of fantasy and adventure where a world of magick exists a mere heartbeat away!

THE WINDRIDERS OF EVERICE, an upcoming collection by Hansen set in her very own fantasy universe, features heroes atop winged mounts protecting all above, below, and around them. ‘To Rule The Sky’ tells the tale of a young Windrider and her winged steed as they encounter a monster of the skies!

The small, mountainous realm of Everice is crumbling, both physically and financially. Queen Astrea—once a powerful enchantress—had set magick aside to rule her homeland with her dynamic and restless horse lord husband. Now widowed and recently remarried, she struggles to hold on to her throne in a time when the harvests are lean, the countryside seethes with unrest, and fell creatures are coming through the major pass they guard. The light of her life is dead, and her new consort is a bold schemer with plans for radical change. Her eldest child, the crown Princess Neoma, is far more interested in horses and swordplay than politics and intrigue.
An almost empty treasury means there is little coin to spare toward the upkeep of Neoma's dwindling stable. While the stubborn young woman still envisions Everice someday having a mounted contingent, of what practical use are cavalry in such rugged heights?
Desperate to honor her beloved father's memory, Neoma strikes out on her own to find some way to make their once mutual ambition a reality. She will stop at nothing, including seeking out a heretical monk who collects items of enchantment; though accepting his counsel will force her to choose a path beyond familial honor and duty. Along the way, Neoma finds a brand new purpose in life as the leader of an aerial brigade, and watches her motley group of misfit and outcast youngsters become a fighting force to be reckoned with.
These are the stories of The Windriders of Everice!

War is coming to Greenwood. A joint coalition of the Dark Ones, led by a wily and powerful ancient adversary, have gathered on the borders of the enchanted forest. Their object: to reopen an all-important portal to the shadow world of Terra Incognita, where they will release their fell brethren waiting on the other side into the world of the living once again. All that stands between this confederacy of evil entities and creatures bent on destruction and mayhem, is a single guardian Naiad, and straggling bands of half-starved Elves. Across the river, in the more peaceful lands of Humans, Callie's pregnancy is now full term. As the armies of friend and foe march into battle in the forest, her child's birth is imminent. Will this babe live long enough to become the savior who unites the scattered allies of the Light World once more, and beat back the Dark God's horde? Or will the ploys of the enemy's Master Summoner snuff out that little life before it has a chance to tip the scales of balance in the Light World's favor? These are the times foretold: the age of the Master's Endgame! The third chapter in Fantasy Pulp Author Nancy Hansen’s Trilogy brings the tale told in Fortune’s Pawn and Prophecy’s Gambit to an adventurous, explosive ending. Masterful at both elaborate description and edge of your seat action, Hansen delivers a fully realized heroine in Callie in Master’s Endgame, from Hansen’s Way and Pro Se Productions.
It is a time of great upheaval in the middle lands of Terra North. Human refugees from realms that have been overtaken by force make their way along the old forest roads; moving resolutely onward to whatever future lies ahead. Elves watch warily from the cover of trees and brush as this influx of additional settlers pass through their gradually shrinking demesne. Some trail the rumbling wagons as they make their way along toward a welcoming kingdom known as Sudarnia. One small party in particular has caught the Forest Born's attention, for amongst the three youngest members of these Human emigrants, is a boy with some particularly disturbing abilities... When death comes hurtling down from the heavens, the children of that settler group are orphaned. Rescued by Elves, they are held in custody until a trusted ally comes to collect them. Each finds an uneasy niche of sorts within Sudarnian society; but what will ultimately become of these three foundlings, and what part will their contributions play, in a land now facing a far more potent menace than it has seen in decades? All the answers lay within the hearts, minds, and spirits of a trio of children whose intertwined destinies were Forged by Flame! By Nancy Hansen and from Pro Se Production
Of the ancient immortal mer-folk clan, Lori is the deadliest amongst them. An incredibly lovely, tall and curvaceous gray-eyed blonde with a mesmerizing voice, she once used her talents to lure unwary mariners to their doom. Held hostage by the Elder Gods through her reluctance to endanger the remainder of her kind, she now serves a higher purpose. The great pearl ring of her heritage is shackled by a fine chain leading to a rune-embossed silver bracelet that must never be removed. When unlinked, it can call forth her 'heroes'—four eternal warriors of old. All five have disgraced themselves in their previous incarnations and now do penance by ridding humanity of menaces both mortal and undead.
Four stories of violent redemption and reprisal involving mystery, suspense, and dangers both in the world of humankind and of the supernatural sphere comprise THE SONG OF HEROES. Meet Lori's four compelling colleagues: Sir Reginald the Paladin, Serge the French executioner, Modak the Cannibal King, and mysterious Herne the Hunter. With sword, axe, spear, and bow they guard their mistress and do her bidding—often reminding Lori of her own debt to those they now protect. Come trembling mortal, and travel into the gruesome world of the deathless avengers and listen again for THE SONG OF HEROES to rise on the salt sea breezes. By Nancy A. Hansen and from Hansen’s Way and Pro Se Productions.
