New Book - In the Lion's Court

The Arkhein: In the Lion's Court, Part 1The Arkhein: In the Lion's Court, Part 1 by Elizabeth D. Marie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hello everyone! Thanks for taking a look at my new book, In the Lion's Court! If you're looking for more dystopian-style worlds to explore (I know I am!) this is for you. Taking place in an alternative-history, America is divided into protectorates and its industrial colonies are surrounded by poisoned "wasted lands", with travel between only by train and at the will of the Sanctioned. Seventeen-year-old Galilea is chosen through Legere to enter Arkhein, a competition with other seventeen year olds at Quentrell Palace for the right to rule as the new Monarch... To be the new face of the Empire. With only three years since the last Monarch was crowned, no one in the colonies was expecting this. The palace is full of secrets, and madness stalks the halls at night.

I wanted you to be aware that The Arkhein is being offered for FREE often, and for limited amounts of time, so check in on Amazon and grab this freebie while you can. :)

Preparations

Summer is fast coming to a close. I love autumn for it's vibrant colors and still sunny but cooler weather. Still, time just moves by so quickly.

This marks 39 days until NaNoWriMo. That's National Novel Writing Month... The big event!

It took me some time trying to decide what book I should write in November. I have too many ideas and so many stories I have started that yearn to see completion. I sat down with a good friend of mine on Sunday and the subject came up. We are both authors and have long participated in NaNoWriMo together. It's a lot of fun when there is someone with whom to share in the excitement, craziness, and the exhilarating triumph. She helped me decide and now I feel ready to face the challenge boldly. Thanks K.!

Until then, my goal is still to have "Web of Time: When Shadows Gather" (Book #3 in the Web of Time series) completed and handed off for the first stage of editing before November hits. I've been experiencing both excitement and tears while telling the story of Dodge, who's real name is soon to be revealed! I have just a couple more chapters to write and have been hard at work these last few weeks and made a lot of progress.

Still on my checklist for November preparation: A suitable soundtrack to accompany me as I write my characters stories.

Until I write again....
