$50 Amazon gift card and the return of author Charity Bradford

Welcome back to the blog, Charity Bradford! The best rule for writing is to follow your heart.

In high school, Charity started writing stories but never managed to finish a full length novel. A year before graduating at Brigham Young University, she married her high school sweetheart and started a family.

Having lived more life, suffered heart ache and a near death experience, Charity decided it was time to make that dream of becoming a published author a reality. She started writing and entered the blogging community to learn all she could about the craft and industry.

Charity also has a romance pen name, River Ford. She's always loved the sweet Hallmark movies. One day she fell in love with the characters she created to live in Eureka Springs, AR. They were real with problems she could understand.

The Hand of Atua is Charity's latest release, a space opera for young adults. A prince, the daughter of his teacher, multiple planets, refugees, and a god waiting for a boy to grow into a man with the faith to change the galaxy. Heartache and hope, fear and love, the living and the dead are all in Atua’s hands.

Eighteen-year-old Amiran wants to forget he's the Hatana's son. Unfortunately, his father's fleet is marching across the galaxy. Planets have fallen and now they're heading for Manawa. There's nothing there the Hatana wants, no reason for him to spare the planet. The only reason to attack is to send Amiran a message—pick up your duty as heir or lose everything you love.

Determined to save as many as possible, Amiran calls for a planet-wide exodus. When his favorite professor refuses to leave, Amiran puts the professor's daughter, Eleena, on the escape shuttle instead. Before he can convince her father to leave Manawa, Amiran is captured by the Hatana's scouts. Sentenced to serve in the mines and then the fleet he hates, Amiran fears he'll never find a way to stop his father's tyranny. Beaten regularly to the brink of death, Am takes solace in dreams about Eleena. As time passes, he draws strength from the knowledge she is alive and surviving in the refugee camps the best she can.

As his feelings deepen, Amiran knows that to keep Eleena truly safe, he must put an end to the brutality of the fleet. Only then will he be able to reunite with the woman he's grown to love.
