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. :)

Book Release

So, I haven't posted here for a few months. Last entry, I was in the midst of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) working hard on my first draft of book #3 in my Crown of Stars series, while editing book #2. Since then, much has been happening.

I wrote the first part of book #3, and succeeded in reaching the 50k word count goal of NaNoWriMo. Wohoo! As well as finalizing the cover for the new book.

My beloved cat of thirteen years passed away, which as those of you who have lost a dear pet can understand was overwhelming and difficult. This put my writing energy into a downslide for a time.

I picked up my final editing of Chasing Cinders, book #2 with several great sessions with my editor. Enjoyed my visits with her, spending time pouring over the book and just catching up on life.

Now, after much hard work, late nights, and long days, the book has been published! I just found this morning that it is live on Amazon.com! I'm so thrilled to share this next installment with you all, and to finally tell Alaric's story, the Boy King, in this Cinderella retelling. The Kingdom of Asteriae faces a new....and maybe not so new...enemy. See the return of a few characters from the first book, including a certain Captain. ;)

As always, if you enjoy the story, I would be so grateful for ratings and reviews. Tell your friends and family, and support a writer's hard work and dedication that made this book a reality.

Until next time. The writing never stops.
