I hope everyone’s had a great week! Mine’s been busy (always) but productive which always feels good.
So I promised a cover reveal for Nova Praetorian!! And I shall deliver – but there is no edited blurb yet and no update on the definite release date, but I do have the cover. So behold! I found this cover on a pre-made site (Go On Write) and LOVED it! So feast your peepers on this!!
It is my first dive into Historical waters, and I loved writing it. So, a quick Q&A:
Is it Historical? Yes. The dates, Roman customs etc, and some historical events are accurate, though the names of senators and the emperor are fictional.
Is it Romance? Yes. LOL
Is it a little different from my usual books? Yes. Apparently. Or so I’ve been told. It’s written in third person POV which I think gives it a different feel. And the language/word usage is more formal – because it’s set in Roman times.
Anyway, I’m suuuuuuper excited for everyone to meet Quintus and Kaeso. I adored writing them. I hope everyone loves them as much as I do! If release date is not before GRL (October 18) it will be after I get home (late Oct/early Nov). I’ll keep you updated!
My WIP now has a title and I’ve seen the prelim cover, so I’m getting excited! It’s called A Soldier’s Wish, and it’s part of a group Christmas anthology. A bunch of awesome authors are writing a story with a continued theme of a special Christmas Angel ornament that gets passed along throughout history. Each story is about the Angel and the men she helps along the way. Each book can be read a stand-alone, they will each have their own special cover, and they don’t have to be read in order.
I’m excited for this! I just need to finish writing my story… and yes, I’m very well aware how close to the deadline I am for this. LOL A Soldier’s Wish is now at 42K and I’m really hoping there is only 6-8K to go. I know I say that a lot and it ends up much longer LOL Considering I thought this story was only going to be 15K in total, my estimates are a complete shot in the dark.
Release date is December 2nd! So mark it on your calendars!
With GRL fast approaching, I’d like to remind you that I will not be doing pre-orders and I cannot sell books at the event. If you want me to sign a book, you’ll need to bring your own copy with you. You can buy my paperbacks from my Author Page at Amazon.
SOME OTHER BOOK EVENTS!
Next year, I’ll be signing at Sydney Books By the Bridge on February 23rd. You can pre-order books for that HERE!
And I’ll also be signing at Book Marked and Sexy in Brisbane on March 2nd. You can pre-order books for that HERE!
Okay, that’s it for this week!! I reeeeeeally need to get this WIP finished this week. It’s pushing my whole schedule back because it’s taken me so long to write it. If you see me online, kick me in the pants!!
