After a year of having most days to myself, schools out and intense mommy time begins. The past week has been such a whirlwind of concerts, graduations and carnival days that I’m plum tuckered out.
However, there is always, always good news on the horizon. My story: The Wisest Maiden has been contracted by Liquid Silver Books. How happy am I to be able to join that family!
For your reading pleasure, here is the blurb:
Betrayed by his first wife, King Toridesh gives his new brides no chance to deceive him. After he marries a virgin of his choosing and consummates the marriage, he has them killed.
As an only child, Issalia has been sheltered by her parents in an attempt to shield her from their king’s murderous intent. When her mother falls ill, Issalia refuses to allow their market-stall be closed for the day, knowing that one day of income stands between them and poverty.
While in disguise, the King spies the lovely Issalia in the marketplace and demands she become his next bride. Will Issalia succumb to the fate of the virgin brides before her or will she be able to break the King’s curse?
It’s a fairy tale with sensual elements set on the backdrop of a desert kingdom. I had the best time writing this. Oh, and by the way, here’s the cover:
So look for The Wisest Maiden in mid-August.
