Hello, I am J.R. McGinnity. I am a fantasy author with a bent toward low fantasy. I'm an avid reader and the proud "mother" of several works, including my recently published The Talented. Here you can find updates on my WIP, information on buying my published works, and free books such as my serialized novel The Emperor's Daughter (previously The Bodyguard).

New cover for The Talented. Visit my blog to learn more.
So recently, I have decided to offer The Bodyguard as a free ebook, not just as something that can be read for free on my site. As part of this, I have not only revamped the cover, I have also decided to rename the work. I felt that, upon reflection, The Bodyguard was not the most compelling name for the novel.
For this reason, The Bodyguard can now be read as The Emperor's Daughter. Over the next few days, you will be able to download The Emperor's Daughter on Amazon, Smashwords, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and other sites. It will still be free for anyone to read (Amazon will take a couple days to catch up with the "free" part, as it is currently listed at $.99, but it will get there.
I am also working on a sequel to this work, so if you're a fan, stick with me and I'll be putting out a sequel soon, possibly in the same one-chunk-at-a-time style as The Bodyguard was released in.

Adrienne Rydaeg has always defined herself as one thing: a soldier. In Kyrog, the elite camp that Adrienne has trained at for over a decade, she works with the best soldiers to keep the plains of Samaro free and to prepare for the never-ending war against Almet.
When Adrienne is approached about a mission that could help change the course of the war forever, she is left with the choice of whether to stay in the place she loves, or leave behind everything she knows.
