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 andCamelot’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!
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 andCamelot’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!
Can you tell we are in the height of contest season? That seems to be all I talk about here anymore. That will change, I promise. But not today.
I’m over the moon because THREE of my books are finalists in the Midwest Book Awards. What’s more, Daughter of Destiny and Camelot’s Queen are two of the three finalists in the fantasy category! Been Searching for You is a finalist in the romance category.
Just a quick note to let you know Daughter of Destiny and Camelot’s Queen are both finalists for the Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards in the adult fiction category. We will know final results around April 1. I’m excited about this one because it’s a contest run by another author and the judges are reading groups in London and Stockholm. Awards determined by readers are extra cool because they are the people I am trying to reach and the reason I started writing in the first place! And I’m excited that this is an international audience!
The B.R.A.G. medallion is one of a handful of honors that attempts to distinguish the best of independently published books in an effort to help readers weed through the glut of books and showcase the professionalism and excellence of certain works. It differs from programs like Library Journal’s SELF-e program in that it is not run by a particular organization within the publishing field, but rather by readers.
I’m so happy to announce that Camelot’s Queen (Guinevere’s Tale Book 2), is a finalist in the Ozma Awards for Fantasy, Magic, Steampunk, Fairytale, Swords & Sorcery Fiction! This award is through Chanticleer Reviews. The next level of award, First in Category is supposed to be announced later this month. The Grand Prize of each category and Book of the Year will be announced at the Chanticleer Awards banquet on April 1, which I will be attending.
The previous book in the series, Daughter of Destiny, won Book of the Year in this competition last year. I’m seriously hoping to make it two years in a row!
I just found out that all of my books are now SELF-e Select picks from Library Journal! (We’ve known about Daughter of Destiny since January, but the others are news to me as of this morning!)
Library Journal‘s curated SELF-e Select module is a nationwide module available on BiblioBoard Library at any local library subscribed to BiblioBoard and participating in the SELF-e program. This means my books will be available to libraries across the country (and possibly across the world because there are several other countries that use SELF-e) to purchase. So go tell your local library you want to see my books on your shelves! They take patron requests very seriously, so if you don’t see it in your catalog, don’t be afraid to ask.
Missouri readers, we have an even better chance of seeing it because all of my books are now “highlighted selections” throughout the state. But please request them if you want to see them in your library. This is especially important in St. Louis County as they are still reticent about purchasing indie books. The more people who request my books, the more likely they are take us seriously.
At long last, I’m pleased to tell you that Camelot’s Queen is available on audio book! Narrated by Serena Scott Thomas, who also narrated Daughter of Destiny, this book covers Guinevere’s life as Arthur’s wife and queen of Camelot.
At the moment it is available on Amazon and Audible. iTunes usually takes a few months to approve books, so I’ll post that link when it becomes available.
