I am very pleased to host my first-ever blog tour post for a fellow author’s book launch! If you’re a fan of finely-crafted fantasy novels with intriguing characters, richly-drawn settings, and compelling storylines, I encourage you to check out D. Wallace Peach’s Liars and Thieves, the first book in her new Unraveling the Veil series. All of the particulars are below! Liz
Behind the Veil, the hordes gather, eager to savage the world. But Kalann il Drakk, First of Chaos, is untroubled by the shimmering wall that holds his beasts at bay. For if he cannot cleanse the land of life, the races will do it for him. All he needs is a spark to light the fire.
Three unlikely allies stand in his way.
A misfit elf plagued by failure—
When Elanalue Windthorn abandons her soldiers to hunt a goblin, she strays into forbidden territory.
A changeling who betrays his home—
Talin Raska is a talented liar, thief, and spy. He makes a fatal mistake—he falls for his mark.
A halfbreed goblin with deadly secrets—
Naj’ar is a loner with a talent he doesn’t understand and cannot control, one that threatens all he holds dear.
When the spark of Chaos ignites, miners go missing. But they won’t be the last to vanish. As the cycles of blame whirl through the Borderland, old animosities flare, accusations break bonds, and war looms.
Three outcasts, thrust into an alliance by fate, by oaths, and the churning gears of calamity, must learn the truth. For they hold the future of their world in their hands.
Q & A
This series took almost 3 years to write. Why?
I started the first book in 2017 prior to NaNoWriMo. Then my parents both contracted ecoli. I dropped everything and flew to Colorado. I spent 9 days in the hospital with my mom, and I honestly didn’t think she’d survive. I had to stop writing for months at a time as both parents’ health declined. I’ve moved them twice, and have become their primary caregiver. For 18 months, the books floundered, on and off, and I lost the story’s thread so completely that I even forgot names! Once things settled down, I had to start from the beginning, take copious notes, reverse outline, and re-outline. My parents live nearby now, so it’s much easier to care for them. Finally, I was able to focus and finish.

D. Wallace Peach started writing later in life after the kids were grown and a move left her with hours to fill. Years of working in business surrendered to a full-time indulgence in the imaginative world of books, and when she started writing, she was instantly hooked. Diana lives in a log cabin amongst the tall evergreens and emerald moss of Oregon’s rainforest with her husband, two dogs, bats, owls, and the occasional family of coyotes.
