  • (1888PressRelease) October 25, 2017 - A Fantasy Author, M.L. Ruscsak Announces the Release of Her New Book-The New Reign (Of Lite and Darke Book 1)

    Author and a mother M.L. Ruscsak (Melisa Ruscsak) is proud to launch her new fantasy novel, The New Reign (Of Lite and Darke Book 1).

    …Lives entwine, sometimes things, or parents do come back to hurt their children.
    And sometimes those hurts make them stronger...

    This intriguing fantasy novel is about Princess Nisha who lost both of her parents eighteen years ago to a tragic fire or at least that is what she had been told. As Nisha comes to her homeland where she is to rule, not even a day after being there she realizes everything that she knew about her parent's death had been a lie.

    She felt something always felt wrong about the story. Something off to the point that it didn't make sense yet no one had ever wanted to believe her. Not when she became Queen of the Under Kingdom when she was barely thirteen. Not when her powers started to grow to frightening results. No, she had decided after she was crowned the Queen of Darke as her mother had planned then she would find all the answer that she wanted... regardless of who or what stood in her way.

    With the help of her betrothed and cousin, they slowly start to piece together what is real and what historical facts had been changed.

    The New Reign (Of Lite and Darke Book 1) Kindle Edition is available on Amazon.

    About The Author
    Born In 1982, a native to Lorain, Ohio, Melisa grew up living with her grandparents Frances and James Lasure. She attended Clearview High School as well as Lorain County J.V.S. in the Culinary Arts program graduating in 2001.

    In 2003, she welcomed the addition of her daughter Chyenne, who inspired her to start to put her dreams to paper. A story she wrote after her daughter's birth, although not published, became the stepping stone to everything else she would eventually write. In 2011 near tragedy struck as Melisa's health began to decline. By summer of 2011, she would need to use a cane to get around. Suffering a stroke, she required a craniotomy where she suffered her second stroke, leaving her with a partial

    impairment of her speech, and weakness on her right side. After surgery, she would need to learn not only to walk again but speak as well as recognize the alphabet.

    Two years later in the fall of 2012 after a divorce, she would meet the man who would push her not only to fight to regain her physical strength but to put her creative mind to work. No longer allowing her to dwell on what she could no longer do but what she could.

    In December of 2013, they would marry. With determination, Melisa would walk down the aisle without the need of a cane.

    A year later and now living in Richland County, Ohio, she would begin to write "Of Lite and Darke" Dreaming to see this work through to publishing, even if she would need to publish it herself.

    In 2016 she would see her dream come true. With her daughter as her editor "Of Lite and Darke" was born.
