Every Wednesday ALLi will tell the world about our members' latest book launches, news, awards, freebies, workshops and updates on the writing life — our #WriterWednesday (#WW) update.
I’m very excited that my début novel, Spirit of Lost Angels, has been chosen for the Goodreads Historical Fictionistas Featured Author group read for the month of June.
For the event, I am hosting a giveaway on my blog from 1st – 10th May.
I'm a new member of ALLI and I'd like to introduce you to my debut novel INCEPTIO, an alternate history thriller, which I published through SilverWood Books in March.
New York – present day alternate reality. Karen Brown, angry and frightened after surviving a kidnap attempt, has a harsh choice – being eliminated by government enforcer Jeffery Renschman or fleeing to the mysterious Roma Nova, her dead mother’s homeland in Europe.
Founded sixteen centuries ago by Roman exiles and ruled by women, Roma Nova gives Karen safety and a ready-made family. But a shocking discovery about her new lover, the fascinating but arrogant special forces officer Conrad Tellus who rescued her in America, isolates her.
Renschman reaches into her new home and nearly kills her. Recovering, she is desperate to find out why he is hunting her so viciously. Unable to rely on anybody else, she undergoes intensive training, develops fighting skills and becomes an undercover cop. But crazy with bitterness at his past failures, Renschman sets a trap for her, knowing she has no choice but to spring it…
I launched INCEPTIO at Waterstones Tunbridge Wells with broadcaster and fellow writer Sue Cook in support. We had a great time!
INCEPTIO is the first in the series of Roma Nova thrillers and has been gathering 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and Waterstones. The ebook is available in all the usual places. The (rather beautiful) paperback has sold very well, especially signed copies from me at events and from my blogsite by post.
The next book, PERFIDITAS, has just gone out to beta readers…
