It’s ready, it’s on the shelves!!!!
‘Once Lady Ysabel Ce Courcey had thought that if she had been a trobairitz, she might have written a song about herself – her courage in the face of adversity that would have had the men and women in any noble hall sighing as they listened.
Now, on the eve of the Third Crusade, the denouement of the ballad is beginning…
Ysabel races across the waters of the Middle Sea to seek out Sir Guy of Gisborne because she has vital information that could save a king.
But above all, she longs to tell the wronged knight that she values him and will stand back to back with him in a vengeful battle that could threaten all their lives.’
Other outlets following in the next few days.
In addition, Book One – Gisborne: Book of Pawns is on special at a celebratory release price until the end of July.
Congratulations ! 🙂
Thank you April73. I’m over the moon!!!
I have it, madam……. Better be good :))
I hope it’s good too, FTPOMYH. Don’t be too harsh if you don’t like it…
Bollyknickers will be over the moon too, iirc. This is just in time for her holiday.
Many, many congratulations, Prue. All finished in record time, and I wish you every success with it.
Thank you Giselle. I hope you enjoy the story. It’s your timeframe…
Such delightful news!!!
I have already downloaded the book to my IPad Kindle app but will try to be patient and keep it for my holiday that starts in two weeks time.
Goodluck L, hope you enjoy. And thank you for supporting me.
Thanks Louise. It’s a good feeling and somewhat of a relief!
Anne, privately I am exhausted!
Yes, but it’s the best kind of exhaustion!
True. Just want to leave it all now and get to the next book and summer. Sadly have a winter lurgy…
Hurrah! Hurrah! At long last! I’m going to Amazon to order it now!
Hi, JAH! I LOVE your enthusiasm!
Prue- you are a star! I’m off on holiday in about two hours so waking up this morning and being able to buy the book for my kindle was the perfect start to the day,
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Phew, Bollyknickers, you have no idea how pooped I am! But for you I am so glad as I know you wanted it for holidays! Hope you don’t get too emotional toward the end…
Goodness- I hope you didn’t rush it because of me. I hope you will be able to relax now and enjoy the feeling of a job done well.
Not at all. The editor and the formatter had both finished. It was time for my publisher to take over. I was surprised that it went onto Amazon so quickly. The busy part is now – trying to let people know that one has written a book they may like, without making oneself into a spammer. It’s an awfully fine line. You’re going to the sun aren’t you? Sift the sand through your toes for me, please and have a wonderful break.
Far North Queensland. 🙂 I’m at the airport now.
I hope someone goes into the forums and alerts them as I know they will be pleased. I’m on patchy iPhone coverage for the next 10 days so I can’t promise to do that unfortunately.
Frenz is going to mention it on her blog very kindly and she’s widely followed. And she invited me to put up a pin on the community board which may lead into the forums. I can see you on the beaches in my mind’s eye – heat of N.Queensland and heat of Cyprus may blend nicely.
Thank you Lauren, it’s a good feeling, despite the tiredness…
Hi Prue many congratulations. Can you tell me when this will be published in paperback please. I do have a Kindle but want this in paperback to go with my “Book of Pawns” Thank You
Thanks so much AJD. My publisher says probably not till the end of the year at least. If not next year. I think they might want to see how it sells as an e-book first.
Can I second this? I’d prefer it as a paperback.
Ann, I honestly have no say in this. As you know, publishers tend to call the shots as ultimately it all becomes a business decision for them, doesn’t it?
Hi Prue thanks for that. I’ve downloaded it my Kindle can’t wait any longer lol. But I will definitely buy the paperback to add to my collection.
Thanks so much. After today’s surge in the figures, I think the publisher may be more kindly inclined toward print, but it’s got a way to go yet.
Just to let you know i have just posted a review on Amazon, Prue. I am Natalie Attired on there – although i think you might have spotted it as me anyway!
A fabulous book – now all i ask is that you knuckle down to the next one! 😉
Thanks so much! Will hop over and have a look. Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
We did have a lovely holiday, thank you Prue. Unfortunately our house was robbed while we were away so that was not a nice home coming. That’s why it took me a while to post the review – lots of tidying up and finding tradies to do repairs, not to mention doing battle with the insurance company..
I’m so sorry, BK. After a similar thing in our own home some years ago, during which my dog was freaked out, all our electrical goods, and my engagement ring (a lovely Ceylon sapphire with diamonds) were stolen, I can sympathise. the police forensic team made as much mess as the thieves and I’m afraid I feel no sympathy for anyone in gaol these days. What’s the saying? ‘If you can’t serve the time, don’t do the crime’. It has relevance. Take care and thank you so much for a truly wonderful review.
The review – my pleasure. I only hope it did your wonderful book justice.
Although i don’t think the robbers would have come if the dog had been home (she’s a big GSD X) i was paradoxically pleased she wasn’t there. You aren’t the first person to tell me about a pet that has been traumatised by intruders. Doors can be mended, but dogs hearts (especially a rescued girl who has been badly treated in her previous home) are more fragile. I’m counting my blessings (and bought shoes yesterday as therapy!)
