Forming Green Realms Guest blog with Kinley Baker

Forming Green Realms

Thank you so much for allowing me to visit today, Wenona! I appreciate your support of the Denied Blog Tour. I’m especially happy to be at this blog because the fantasy realms I build are completely green friendly. The Shadowed Love Series is based on Shadow Shifters who travel from the Mortal realm to the Realm of Shadows in the year 657. Fast forward to modern day times and Book One (RUINED) takes place in a kingdom that has known peace for centuries. If you’d like to read how the Shadow Shifters traveled to the Realm of Shadows, you can read it in FREED: A Shadowed Love Story, which is a prequel novella and available at Amazon for 99 cents.

The first book in the series is RUINED, and it’s the story of newly crowned King Vale, a man who falls for his forbidden Senior Healer. Their kingdom is in modern times, but they weren’t exposed to the technology we have today, so their society is very much medieval and the few conveniences they have run on magic from The Well of Souls, the heart and power source of their people. Technology can overwhelm me sometimes, so I liked the idea of creating a realm where readers can leave cell phones at the door.

DENIED is the story of Tabitha, a woman who wants to be the first accepted female guard in her kingdom. And Caleb, a man from another homeland, who is trying to provide a safe future for his men. His people lost their women and children in a brutal invasion two years before the story starts. Tabitha only wants to fight, and Caleb only wants to protect her. It’s a battle of wits and blades.

I also have a new series coming out in 2013. It’s a post-apocalyptic/futuristic romance set in a realm that thrives on solar power. I guess I know how I feel about things, considering I’m developing a pattern. I love your blog and good luck with The Everything Green Wedding Book. I could have used that when I got married several years back.

I hope you’ll take a chance on the realm. I recommend the 99 cent novella to see if the Shadowed Love Series would be a good fit.


When invaders brutally massacred the women and children of the Varner, Caleb witnessed loss and destruction on a scale few can comprehend. As the leader of a race on the brink of extinction, his only hope for survival is gaining acceptance into the Shadow Shifter Kingdom. Struggling with new customs, he meets Tabitha, a woman who challenges his limits. 

Refused the right to join the king’s guard because of her gender, Tabitha must be stronger than the men to prove she deserves to be the first accepted female Warrior in the kingdom. She believes Caleb will help improve her abilities, until she learns her goals conflict with the foundation of his culture. 

When the realm is attacked, Tabitha and Caleb must come together not only to fight, but to find the strength to win against an evil with the potential to destroy everything they revere most--including each other.
