Another Blurb!

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!

Squee! What a great blurb!!! That's awesome! :)

We still have 5 or 6 weeks of school left!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Jemi--I'm sure those last weeks will fly by! Too bad we can't slow down the weeks of summer though, eh?

I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Shine On Award! Just cause you do shine on! Have a wonderful day!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Debra--Thanks so much! I could use a little sunshine to melt the rest of the snow at my house!

Hi Stephanie, popping over from Debra's blog.

What a fantastic blurb, Stephanie! Also, I'm very envious of your revision cave. ;)

Stephanie Thornton said...

J.L.- Glad you stopped by!

Tricia--It's more like a revision couch, actually. Sometimes there's ice cream too. ;)

Cool! How do you go about getting these great blurbs:)

I'm currently reading The Secret History - will be a stop on the blog tour, and I have to say that I'm loving it and I'm only on page 80! Looking forward for the next one already!

I like this a lot. Thank you for sharing. I'm always looking for upcycles like this. In the end, you don't know it was a shipping pallet to begin with!
