About For King and Country

England 1193
Civil war threatens as battle-scarred knight Henry de Grey returns from the Crusades. King Richard languishes in captivity, a prisoner of the Holy Roman Emperor. Traitors to the crown pit Henry and his friends against dangerous and unknown enemies.

Loyalties will be tested, families torn apart. Friend or foe? It is hard to tell one from the other.

The king’s brother John and his allies plot to usurp Richard’s throne. With the knights Sir Stephan and Sir Robin, Henry fights for king and country. But he must keep his feelings for Sir Stephan l’Aigle secret. Sure as arrow or sword, their forbidden love could destroy him.

War, political intrigue and passion… heroes… friends and lovers… and the seeds for a new Robin Hood legend await you…

 

 

Cover reveal – For King and Country

I am thrilled to finally share the book cover for Book II of Battle Scars, For King and Country. with you!

Many thanks to Travis at probookcovers.com for being patient and working through my list of suggestions. As we decided on the initial concept, which obviously needed a similar look to Book I, Men of the Cross, I realized that if I displayed the covers side by side, it would be cool to line up the red ribbons and the lettering. Travis had the castle on a flat plain behind the knights, but I wanted it on a hill. You can thank my friend Mick for suggesting a little blue for the clouds to complement the dust storm of Book I, and for son Joel for showing me what that might look like on the final cover. Isn’t it great?

Watch for a Kindle Countdown in March for Men of the Cross. You’ll have time to read it and then sign up for a giveaway for For King and Country. Once I have the print proofs in hand, I plan to announce a publication date.

is now available at Amazon!

book cover for Family Peace

I really hate the hard sell, so I won’t beat you over the head with it. It’s there. It was a lot of work, a fantastic journey with many friends – including my Thursday night writers group – encouraging me along the way.

I’d love to see you “like” the book on Amazon (if you do), write a review if you’re so inclined, pass the link on to your Facebook friends, your relatives, and ask them to spread the word. Promotion and marketing are tough in this brave new publishing world when there are nearly 3,000,000 books available.

In my friend Marie’s immortal words:

Go buy it. Right now. Then read it.

By the end of the week, Keeping the Family Peace will also be available for Nook & other eReaders. Don’t have an eReader? You can download FREE ereaders to your computer, your tablet, even to your smart phone! Amazon & Nook for PC & Nook for Mac. Or, if you’re willing to wait a few more weeks, I hope to have the print version of the book available from Amazon by late January.
