Medieval Novels
February 19th, 2014

I’m pondering the idea of a box set for my medieval novels – to combine three together. The question is – which three should I combine?

Writing Contest Blurb
February 15th, 2014

I’m entering a writing contest and need a powerful under-300-word blurb to describe my story. What do you think of this? Suggestions?

Elizabeth has finally gotten free. Free of her abusive father. Free of the cruel fiancé he pledged her to. She fled her family’s medieval keep, risked the ruthless bandits which prowled her lands, and found a fresh start. In a few days she would arrive at a nunnery on England’s eastern shores. There she could begin again. She would finally put her sword skills to good use, acting as protector for the tranquil outpost.

When Richard’s moss-green eyes catch hers in the smoky depths of a tavern, Elizabeth treats him as she would every other man in her life–-as an imminent threat. Her instinct is to avoid all contact. Then a bedraggled orphan ends up tucked under her wing, and her protective instincts flare even higher.

But Richard is patient, tenderly attentive, all the things Elizabeth has craved but never thought possible. With the delicacy of a snowdrop unfurling after a bitter winter, her heart braves the most fleeting of hope.

He could be different.

Then Corwin strides in from her past. Her fiance’s cutting remarks and quick, bruising fist shatter her tenuous peace. Corwin’s grasping fingers drag her back toward the hell-hole she barely escaped to begin with.

Elizabeth must delve within herself to find hidden reserves of strength she never knew existed. Somehow she must find a way to stand against her family and Corwin-–and to claim the life she knows, deep down, that she deserves.
