As King Arthur Hits Theatres, My Guinevere Books Go on Sale

If you’re in the US, chances are good you’ve heard about a little movie called King Arthur: Legend of the Sword that is coming out this Friday. It’s directed by Guy Ritchie and stars Charlie Hunnam is the titular king, so it certainly has star power. In case you’re not familiar, here’s the trailer:

Personally, I think this is typical Hollywood, where they are more excited about the “cool” effects they can use (I mean, elephants in Arthurian legend? Ugh!) than with plot, but I don’t discount that it will have entertainment value for some people.

For those who would rather hear Guinevere’s side of the story, I’ve put both Daughter of Destiny and Camelot’s Queen on sale (ebook) through May 14 for $0.99 at all major retailers.

As before, if are willing to help spread the word, I’d really appreciate it!

  • If you haven’t bought Daughter of Destiny or Camelot’s Queen yet, please do.
  • Share information on the sale on social media. I’ve created a folder that has ready-made images and sample tweets/FB posts and links to where the book is for sale to make it as easy as possible to share.
  • I will have an article in the Huffington Post this week, so if you see it, please share it.
  • If you’ve already helped my dreams come true by buying, THANK YOU. If you have time to leave a review, that is always appreciated and may encourage others to buy. Here’s the link to Review on Amazon.

By the way, at the time of this writing, both Daughter of Destiny and Camelot’s Queen are in the 300s on their categories on Amazon. I’d love to see them get to #1…so any help you can give is appreciated!

This is my last ask that I know of until my next release. I really appreciate your efforts, your patients and that are willing to stick with me. Tell me what I can do for you in return!
