10 Things You Didn't Know About Sophia: Within by @JordyLizama #BookClub #YA #Fantasy

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Sophia:Within
1 I started writing the book when I was 15 years old
2 Sophia was originally named Lauren, the actual name is inspired by my daughter who is named the same.
3 The character I most enjoyed writing about was Dennis, somewhere along the way he became all of my brothers, I just love him.
4 Sophia began more like a fantasy novel, she was supposed to be a fairy.
5 The preface is the first part I wrote of the book. It’s the only part that has remained the same through all the years and editing.
6 After I finished the preface and first chapter I thought I sucked, so I deleted it. Thankfully it took me 4 years to empty my trash can and find it there.
7 Sophia:Within was originally named The Enchantress.
8 After I rescued the book from my computer bin it took me less than a month to complete it all.
9 The first person that read the preface of the book was my sister Michelle, she loved it and wanted to read more of it.
10 Sophia:Within was supposed to be just one book, but the story kept going, so I decided to divide it into two.
Only time will tell if Sophia, Alec and the world are ready to accept the mission that has been passed down for many generations. This is more than a story of reincarnation. This is a story that never ended following the reign of the Greek gods. What has been hidden for thousands of years is about to surface in a small New England town. 

The impact on this rural village is ageless, but only the chosen time travelers know what is happening, the reason it is happening and how to control the outcome. The Men of Ages have walked the Earth unnoticed since the time of Greek mythology and have kept their ancient war alive by transporting the lead warrior in a most unusual time machine. 

There is only one way to stop the cataclysmic demise of the human race and Sophia is the answer. But, Sophia is a teenage girl faced with many human and nonhuman desires that create a tortuous path from antiquity to the present day. Love conquers all; or, so it seems.
