Yep, you guessed it! It’s been another busy week. They’re all so busy, at this point we should just take busy as a given and I’ll let you know if I have a non-busy week LOL
I did manage to finish my Christmas Angel story. OMG I didn’t think it would ever end! LOL But A Soldier’s Wish is now done at 55K words. I’m so relieved!! And I do love these boys – they’re super sweet and truly deserve their HEA.
So this week I’ll be working on edits on Nova, writing a blurb for A Soldier’s Wish, and doing some research for a short (20K-ish) story with some characters you’ve already met. My lips are sealed though! I can’t say anything because it’s a surprise. (No, it’s not Charlie and Travis… 🙁 They’re off living their HEA and don’t need me anymore *sobs*)
But I’m excited to start it, and I have another two characters who have been waiting ever so patiently for me to start their story. I’m getting there, guys… I promise.
NOVA PRAETORIAN COVER AND BLURB:
I have the blurb, though it still might be tweaked or polished yet, so this is the unofficial version. I can’t tell you how much I adored these two men and if more Ancient Roman characters decided they needed a story I wouldn’t be too upset. LOL
You’ve seen the cover, but because it’s so beautiful you can have it again 😉
Quintus Furius Varus is one of the best lanistas in Rome. Tall and strong in build, fearsome in manner and sharp of wit, he trains the best gladiators bound for the arenas of Rome. When Senator Servius Augendus seeks personal guards, he attends the Ludus Varus for purchase of the very best. He puts to Quintus an offer he cannot refuse, and Quintus finds himself in Neapolis contracted as a trainer of guards instead of gladiators.
Kaeso Agorix was taken from his homelands of Iberia and delivered to Rome as a slave. Bought by a senator to be trained as a guard, his fate is handed to the man who would train him. Absent free will, Kaeso knows his life is no longer his own, but soon realises the gods have shined upon him when he learns the man who trains him has a good heart.
Quintus and Kaeso forge a bond that far exceeds the collar at Kaeso’s neck, and together they discover the senator’s move for promotion has an ulterior motive. Thrown into a world of politics and conspiracy, they move against time to save Rome before traitors and the gods themselves see to their end.
And in doing so, see the dawn of the nova praetorian—the new guard—rise.
As I said above, I still might tweak it… blurbs are a weird thing. So if someone adds this to Goodreads and the official blurb is different, that’s not my fault. 🙂
Still no update on release date. I’m hoping to have it out before I leave on October 13th but I can’t guarantee that. If not, it will be when I return in the last week of October.
Galaxies and Oceans is now available at other retailers!!
And Amazon of course.
Oh, and my paperbacks are being migrated to Ingram Spark. Because of the number of them, it will happen in stages. You may see them disappear from Amazon for a day or two, but they’ll be back up asap!
Okay that’s it this week! I have much to do and I’m running out of time. I leave for the US in 19 days but my kids only have 4 more days of school this term and then my writing/work time will be cut. Busy, busy!
Until next week… <3
