Today marks an important day for The Cross and the Dragon, my debut novel about Alda, a young early medieval noblewoman who must contend with a vengeful jilted suitor and the anxiety her beloved husband will die in battle. I am reintroducing my first book baby to the world, clad in a beautiful new cover created by talented graphic artist and my friend Jessica Kerkhoff.
When the rights to both my books reverted to me, I was determined to make them available to readers again. I had invested too much of my time, my effort, and myself to do otherwise. I decided to go indie because I wanted to release The Cross and the Dragon on my terms.
And you, the readers, encouraged me. If I am to believe the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads—and why shouldn’t I?—most people who’ve read the book loved it. To those of you who read the novel when it was previously published, thank you. If you wrote a review, you have my undying gratitude. And if you meant to get a copy, but never quite got around to it, here’s your chance.
To celebrate my novel’s new life, I’m giving away a signed paperback to one lucky U.S. resident, thanks to Goodreads (check out the widget below). At the same time, I’m giving away one ebook in the format of your choice in the form of a 100 percent off coupon from Smashwords. The ebook giveawy is open internationally from now until September 5, 2016. To enter the ebook giveaway, all you need to do is agree to get an email whenever one of my books is published and leave your email address in the comments.
