I’m eager to get some feedback on my short Medieval romance, ‘Rhiannon.’ Here’s the blurb:
Rhiannon, a Welsh farmer’s daughter, is smuggled into a walled English garrison town. Harboured by a merchant and his son, her happiness is shattered when her presence in their home is discovered. Taken to the castle, Rhiannon’s fate lies in the hands of Lord Edward. Will he believe Rhiannon’s claim that all she wants is to be a lady or will he condemn her to a traitor’s death?
If you’d be interested in reading and reviewing / rating the book, you can download it for free from Smashwords for a limited time, using the coupon code: DK76C
The collection of the stories, Brizecombe Hall, Kitty and The Hangar Dance, titled, ‘Three Romances‘, is now available in digital format on Amazon.
Spring has finally sprung in the UK and to celebrate the fact the ebook version of Kitty will be free via Amazon’s Kindle Select programme for the last time over the Whitsun weekend, 25-27th May.
The Hangar Dance , which was recently described as a ‘short and sweet story about love, innocence, and loss,’ is still free via Smashwords and their retailers.
My World War II romantic novelette, ‘The Hangar Dance,’ is currently free on Smashwords and via its retailers.
There are reviews of the story on Barnes & Noble, Goodreads & Amazon UK.
Somewhat controversially (as Charlotte was no fan of Jane!), I’m marking the birthday of my literary heroine, Charlotte Bronte, with a promotion of a story that’s an homage to another of my literary heroines, Jane Austen:
‘Kitty’ will be free on Amazon on 20th and 21st April.
As we approach Easter here in the UK, the weather is decidedly unseasonal. The prevailing snow and sub-zero temperatures mean it’s the perfect time to take advantage of a final opportunity to acquire ‘Elizabeth Clansham,’ my novella set in the snowy Scottish Highlands, before it ceases to be free on Smashwords after Easter. As the anti-hero, Andrew, is given to saying (though, of course, he doesn’t actually adhere to his adage), ‘It’s the things you don’t do in life that you regret,’ so get hold of the book for free while you still can!
Also free on Smashwords at present is my World War II novelette, ‘TheHangar Dance.’
If you read and enjoy either book, I’d be appreciative of ratings, recommendations and reviews anywhere and everywhere.
I’m really pleased to have received four great reviews for ‘Kitty,’ my novelette that’s an homage to Jane Austen, on Amazon.com. The book has also been well received on Goodreads.
What keeps cropping up are comments about writing longer historical romances. At the moment I love writing short fiction in the genre of historical romance but I seem to have a real block with the concept of attempting a full novel in this genre!
Maybe one day I’ll apply myself to the task – I think it’s just a case of finding the right characters…
It is 200 years since Jane Austen’s novel, Pride & Prejudice, was first published. To celebrate this fact, my new Regency novelette, Kitty, will be free on Amazon from 10 – 14th February.
If anybody reads & enjoys the book, I would be very appreciative of reviews, recommendations and ratings, on Amazon & elsewhere.
Kitty is also now available in print format, within a collection of three stories, along with Brizecombe Hall and The Hangar Dance. ‘Three Romances’ is available from Amazon US, UK and Europe.
