The Blackened Tablet Series is an epic fantasy quest story with corrupt politics, wondrous magic, and illicit encounters in a supernatural world where no one is safe.
Three hundred years ago, the sacred tablet granted by their god, Jezabet, turned black, and eight kingdoms broke free, plummeting into the bottomless sea. There was no warning, and no one knows why.
Now, a strange illness plagues Aldersward. Crowned Prince Aedyn's sisters, Achelle and Annora, his father, and countrymen are desperate and grief-stricken. All hope is lost...
Until someone dreams, and Aedyn leaves behind his mistress and his betrothed to cure their nation. He enlists his friends; a brazen playboy, a gentle strongman, and an ancient mentor. Together, they set out on a perilous journey-few believe they will survive.
This isn't a fairy tale-s3x becomes currency, murder is ordinary, and love doesn't conquer all.
Everyone loves a hero-good triumphs evil. But few dare to question how victory ripples into consequences. Explore this exciting concept in the Blackened Tablet Series.
How did A Crown Forged By Victory’s Consequence come about?
Aaryanna: Without too much detail; when I was a child I wasn’t safe at home or school. The characters in this series and their magical environment were my escape.
When did you begin writing A Crown Forged By Victory’s Consequence?
Aaryanna: I created the series bible and a few scenes about 15 years ago, and then I put my writing away. Life was very hectic as a single mother with 2 small children. In 2019, I received a hard drive reader for Christmas and after scanning all my dead drives, I found my writing files. It was then that I decided to pick up writing again, and I wrote 300,000 words in 6 months for this series.
What is your writing process?
Aaryanna: I’m fortunate my career and family allow me to write for as many hours a day as I like. I have noise-cancelling headphones and play white noise, lute music, or feeling music while I write. I find the morning hours are my most productive, but when I am immersed in the story I can write for 10-14 hrs without a break. I utilise sprint rooms on Clubhouse (social audio app) to break up each hour so I remember to drink, eat, and move for a few minutes.
What kind of author are you?
Aaryanna: I’m character driven. My characters speak to me, reveal their stories to me, and I simply write them down. They are like friends and as real to me as you are. It’s impossible to feel alone because they are always with me. And we argue (lol). It sounds crazy. If I do something a character doesn’t like, or they feel I have written them into a path they wouldn’t have taken, those characters nag at me until I fix it or we come up with a compromise. A side effect of this process is that I cannot meet side characters until my main character meets them. So at times, it can be annoying because I have to add them to my story bible as they appear when I would rather just add them before.
Do you have a message for readers?
Aaryanna: I have hope. I hope they become so immersed in this story that they physically feel the pain, the caresses, and the joys as if each were their own. Reading was an escape for me. I hope I can be an escape for someone else.

About Aaryanna Abbott:
This is another of my pen names. For every pen name, I use a different part of who I am. I imagine this is how she looks.
What’s this part of me like?
I was a daddy’s girl. The very epitome of spoilt.
I love to be wild and crazy—experience everything the world has to offer. I’m adventurous and my carefree disposition is contagious.
I’m loyal to a fault and don’t care what expectations or labels society has bestowed upon me. I believe one’s truth is more valuable than anyone’s perception.
This part of me writes for escapism—to be free of my mundane day to day and live in a magical world almost as real to me as earth. Except in my imaginary world, I control all things and it pleases me to no end.
Do you know how happy you would be living there?
