Presenting the cover for Aylfenhame #2!
How lovely is that? This thing of beauty is, as ever, by the magnificent Elsa Kroese.
Here be the blurby bit:
Tilby, Lincolnshire, 1812. Miss Isabel Ellerby is a dutiful daughter to her loving parents, and more than happy to go along with the marriage they have planned for her. But the revelation of a long-held secret turns her neatly-arranged life upside down. When an unwise promise to the mysterious Ferryman of Aylfenhame lands her in the midst of an adventure, Isabel is forced to choose: Will she pursue a safe, conventional life as Miss Ellerby of Ferndeane, or will she follow her heart and her destiny to Aylfenhame?
I’m totally chuffed to report that the fine ladies and gents at Kobo are running a 3-for-2 promotion over the weekend, and out of the 200 titles included, two of them are mine! Until Monday 9th, Kobo readers in the US and Canada can get the Draykon box set AND the Malykant Mysteries box set as part of this promotion, i.e. at a total bargain price. How spiffy is that?! Here’s the thing: https://store.kobobooks.com/p/SW3f2US
I’m excited to report that I have curated my first bundle with the marvellous folks at StoryBundle. You’ve heard about this before, because I’ve participated in a couple of previous bundles. But this is the first time I’ve chosen the books!
The bundle includes Miss Landon and Aubranael, and it’s appearing alongside 9 other great titles. They’re all set in the past, but within that we’ve got historical fantasy, mystery, romance, time travel, and more! They’re all great books written by top indie authors, and I had a blast putting this bundle together.
Here’s my mini blurb:
History is made up of stories, and those stories are vast, and varied beyond compare. The The Historical Fiction Bundle comprises a total of ten terrific titles by top-notch authors, together representing exactly this breadth and variety of experience. These stories blend real-world historical settings with romance, adventure, fantasy and mystery to bring you whole worlds of fun! You’ll visit ancient Egypt, the Americas, the Caribbean, Great Britain and Japan; you’ll meet pirates and warriors, witches and princesses, detectives, time-travelers and more.
Bundles are a great deal. Miss Landon and Aubranael usually costs $5, but for that price you’ll get four other titles along with it. For $12 or more, you’ll get a stack of 9 books – or 10, if you’re a newsletter subscriber as well. It’s a great way to support indie authors, and you can choose to assign part of your purchase fee to charity as well.
If all of that sounds great to you, head on over to StoryBundle to pick up your books! Note that you can also buy a bundle as a gift, so if you know someone who’d love Miss Landon and Aubranael, or who enjoys historical fiction (+ extras), this is a super opportunity.
It’s limited time, of course. It will end on 26th November – just in time for the second Aylfenhame book, Miss Ellerby and the Ferryman, to release on the 2nd December.
