It's almost exactly 1 1/2 months until the debut of The Secret History, and things are starting to get busy. There will be a blog tour, giveaways (books and Byzantine coins--ohlala!), and I might even have some other excitement hidden up my sleeve.
(Okay, so I do, but you'll have to wait until later to find out about the rest of the fun).
I've also received another blurb (publishing-code for the author quotes on the cover and front pages) for The Secret History, this one from Jeane Westin:
"Loss, ambition and lust keep this rich story moving at top speed.
Stephanie Thornton writes a remarkable first novel that brings a little
known woman to full, vibrant life...A sprawling and irresistible
story."—Jeane Westin, author of The Spymaster's Daughter
If you haven't already read it and you're looking for a great read on Queen Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley (talk about one of the greatest love stories of all time!), I highly recommend Westin's His Last Letter. It's definitely swoonworthy!
And now I'm headed back to the revision cave to romp around the Mongolian steppes with Genghis Khan for The Tiger Queens. School ends this week and then I'm looking forward to some serious editing time!
