Super Exciting News!


You guys know I love Kate Quinn's Rome series (some of my all-time favorite historical fiction!) and I can't wait for her upcoming novel on the Borgias. So imagine my excitement (not to mention the state of my nerves), when Kate agreed to read THE SECRET HISTORY.

And then something even cooler happened. She liked it!

“Stephanie Thornton’s Theodora is tough and intelligent, spitting defiance against the cruel world of the Byzantine Empire. Her rise from street urchin to emperor’s consort made me want to stand up and cheer. Her later years as empress are great fun to read, but it was her early struggle as actress and courtesan that really had me roaring: either with rage at the misfortunes heaped on this poor girl, or with delight as she once more picked herself up with a steely glint in her eye and kept on going.”—Kate Quinn, author of Empress of the Seven Hills

To celebrate, I'm giving away another ARC! Entries will be accepted here on my blog until Sunday, March 17th. (Because I'm officially now on Spring Break!) Just leave a comment and you're entered to win. (And yes, international readers are always welcome!)

Also, Svea Love won the first ARC giveaway from last week. Congrats Svea!

Congratulations, Stephanie!!! What a great blurb!!!

Another chance at an ARC for The Secret History? Oh how wonderful. Theodora is such a fascinating character--she proves that real-life does beat out fiction. She and Justinian fascinate me because I have been researching the Byzantine reconquest of Italy. I am looking forward to reading the book come what may.

Lucky woman to have Kate Quinn's endorsement. I'd love an ARC for your upcoming book. You might find my blog (A Writer of History) of interest to your writing. (Apologies if that sounds like a plug ...)
