Ladies and gentlemen, I give you a fall 2016 release date for Avelynn 2!
St. Martin’s Press has opted not to exercise their first rights of refusal on the second book in the Avelynn series, and rather than shopping it out to smaller presses, I have decided to self publish the remaining titles in the series!
The publication team is full steam ahead, and we are working towards cover design and final edits to get Avelynn 2 out this fall! BUT I don’t have a title!
I’m giving away a $25 Amazon Gift Card, a signed copy of the original manuscript, and an awesome printed poster to the winning entry (picked by moi). So, get those ideas jumping.
|Up for grabs! A signed copy of the original manuscript!|
To help you in your quest for the best new title in the Avelynn series, here for the first time ever is the thrilling cover copy for this exciting new book:
It’s the year 871. Charges of treason, murder, and witchcraft follow Avelynn into exile as she flees England with Alrik. Arriving in Wales, they find refuge among Alrik’s friends in the Welsh nobility. Cast out by his half-brothers, Alrik seeks to regain his honor and earn favor with the gods. When war threatens, Alrik embraces gold and the opportunity for his crew to become mercenaries, aiding the Southern Welsh kings in their fight against Rhodri the Great.
Desperate to return home, Avelynn seeks to find a way to prove her innocence, pitting her against Alrik as their desires for the future clash. With battle looming, Avelynn’s faith in their relationship is further tested through a bitter struggle with Marared, a jealous lover from Alrik’s past. Marared’s threats turn deadly, and Avelynn runs afoul of magic and sorcery, causing her to question her beliefs and role as priestess.
When the very friends Avelynn and Alrik had come to trust betray them, Avelynn is captured and Alrik is charged with regicide. The two become separated, a chasm of greed, deceit, and ambition driving them apart. In an act of harrowing faith, Avelynn will stop at nothing to find her way back to Alrik and break them both free from Wales’ bloodthirsty grasp.
