Cover Reveal: SONG OF WAR!



It's cover reveal time for SONG OF WAR! Isn't she a beauty?! 

The novel goes on sale October 18th, but it's available for pre-order at both Amazon and Kobo. You can also add it to your to-read shelf at Goodreads

I am thrilled to join Christian Cameron, Libbie Hawker, Kate Quinn, Vicky Alvear Shecter, S.J.A. Turney, and Russell Whitfield to help retell the story of the Trojan War. But this is Trojan War as you've never seen it before, seen through the eyes of characters you may not be as familiar with... 


Troy: city of gold, gatekeeper of the east, haven of the god-born and the lucky, a city destined to last a thousand years. But the Fates have other plans—the Fates, and a woman named Helen. In the shadow of Troy's gates, all must be reborn in the greatest war of the ancient world: slaves and queens, heroes and cowards, seers and kings . . . and these are their stories.

A young princess and an embittered prince join forces to prevent a fatal elopement.

A tormented seeress challenges the gods themselves to save her city from the impending disaster.

A tragedy-haunted king battles private demons and envious rivals as the siege grinds on.

A captured slave girl seizes the reins of her future as two mighty heroes meet in an epic duel.

A grizzled archer and a desperate Amazon risk their lives to avenge their dead.

A trickster conceives the greatest trick of all.

A goddess' son battles to save the spirit of Troy even as the walls are breached in fire and blood.

Seven authors bring to life the epic tale of the Trojan War: its heroes, its villains, its survivors, its dead. Who will lie forgotten in the embers, and who will rise to shape the bloody dawn of a new age?

New Project Reveal: A Song of War- A Novel of Troy





I've been sitting on this news for a while so I'm thrilled to finally be able to announce that I've joined the H Team to help write SONG OF WAR: A NOVEL OF TROY! 

It's the Trojan War, but you've never heard it told like this before... 

Due out in October 2016, I'll be telling a portion of the story from the point of view of Cassandra, King Priam's unfortunate prophetess daughter. The poor gal's visions are never believed, even as she tries to stop the war from beginning. I'm not sure I've ever had such a tragic narrator before!

A novel told in seven parts by amazing authors Kate Quinn, Vicky Alvear Shecter, Christian Cameron, Libbie Hawker, Simon James Atkinson Turney, and Russell Whitfield, SONG OF WAR promises to be a wild ride! Check back here for the cover reveal, updates, and promotions!

Today is the long-awaited release day for The Conqueror's Wife! 

We are the women who loved Alexander the Great.  We were lovers and murderers, innocents and soldiers.

Instead he was a god.

Ask the Author for Goodreads' Historical Fiction Week

August 3rd-9th is Historical Fiction Week at Goodreads and a whole slew of histfic authors are open for questions about their books, characters, and fabulous historical settings. 

Pop on over for some fun, especially if you have questions about my upcoming novel, The Conqueror's Wife: A Novel of Alexander the Great. (Okay, it's really about his feisty women, but Alex doesn't need to know that.)

Now is a great time to add The Conqueror's Wife to your TBR shelf too!
