New Book - In the Lion's Court

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. :)

Edits!

Well, I've done it at last. Completed my first edit of Web of Time: When Shadows Gather, the third book in the Web of Time series. Now, I turn my attention back to book four, pulling up the manuscript from the NaNoWriMo clutter of this past November.

Editing isn't always the worst thing to being a writer. Some people enjoy it, some people don't. I fall somewhere in the middle. Despite its challenges, I do find it strangely therapeutic to mark up the manuscript pages with a red (or blue, or whatever color I can find at the time) pen. I don't enjoy fixing grammar or punctuation. If I could leave that to someone else and ignore that aspect entirely, I would do it gladly. However, I *do* enjoy rearranging scenes and dialogue to make it better.

These next couple months will be busy ones for me as I prepare to release the new Web of Time book cover series along with the final two books of the series. I will be sure to post when and where you can preorder your copies, so keep an eye out!
