Wow. Look at me: blogging for the first time since July. I’m going to breeze over the fact that I’m a disastrous blogger to announce that today — THIS VERY DAY! — my latest book, Court, is available in e-book form on Amazon!
Here’s the deal with Court.
I started my whole mental-outlining thing for this book about…[checking files…computing]…two+ years ago. I wanted to:
- Write something set in my home state of Wyoming.
- Tell a story from multiple perspectives.
- Write about a guy (or several).
- Write something different. For me. Maybe for everyone.
Court was born.
But let me tell you the thing about passion projects that are very much unlike your other books to date. Sometimes those projects are hard to market. Sometimes your editor doesn’t want to publish them.
Sometimes you publish them yourself.
Here’s what Court is about:
For more than 300 years, a secret monarchy has survived and thrived within the borders of the US, hiding in plain sight as the state known as Wyoming. But when the king is shot and his seventeen-year-old son, Haakon McHale, is told he will take the throne, becoming the eleventh ruler of the Kingdom of Eurus, the community that’s survived for centuries is pushed to the limit. Told through four perspectives, Court transplants us to a world that looks like ours, but isn’t. Gwendolyn Rose, daughter of the Duke of Coal, is grudgingly betrothed to Haakon — and just wants a way out. Alexander Oxendine, son of the Duke of Wind and Haakon’s lifelong best friend, already grapples with internal struggles when he’s assigned to guard Haakon after the king dies. And commoner Mary Doyle finds whispers in the woods that may solve — or destroy — everything, depending on your bloodline.
I’d really love it if you all check out Court. It’s about the price of a fancy latte, but it lasts longer. And, if you do read Court, don’t forget to review it on Amazon. Hope you enjoy it!
