Release Day for The Conqueror's Wife!

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.
And without us, Alexander would have been only a man.
Instead he was a god.

Want to read more? Head on over to Amazon or my page on The Conqueror's Wife for a sneak peek at Alexander's wild-child younger sister, childhood companion and soul mate, crafty sister-in-law, and nefarious Persian wife!

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!

Cover Reveal: The Conqueror's Wife

And here she is, the cover of my fourth novel, coming in December 2015 from New American Library/Penguin!

It's a little different from my other covers, but I really like the mystery of this one. I suspect that Alexander would prefer a severed head or two, with himself as the main focus atop a rearing Bucephalus, but fortunately, he's not in charge this time.

Sex & Stereotype in Marco Polo

Love Netflix's Marco Polo or hate it, I'm over at Word and Film today with my take on the series and how Kublai Khan's various women stack up against, say... Daenerys Targaryen.

P.S.--Benedict Wong makes a pretty rockin' Kublai.

Upcoming Reading Event: The Living Room

For those of you in the Eagle River area, I'll be joining The Living Room to read from The Tiger Queens this Friday, January 9th. The fun starts at 7PM at Jitters!

And now I'm wondering if I should cook up a batch of Mongolian fermented mare's milk to share afterward... Or we could just stick to something mundane, like tea and coffee.
