Happy Book Birthday, Drowned History!

Today is a very special day for me.

I was so excited when The Detective’s Brother came out. It was the first book I’d published, and the fact that it was through a publisher made me feel amazing. I knew I wouldn’t sell too many books being a new author, but at least I’d be getting my name out there.

Then Booktrope folded.

Thanks to the way Booktrope was set up, my book was left in publishing limbo. Until I either pay my editor or figure out how to give her a portion of my sales as promised, I won’t be re-releasing it.

Instead, I wrote a pirate novella and an Edwardian romance novel with some amazing women who showed me that self-publishing is a valid option, and who have found success and bestseller status by doing so. With advice from them on marketing, publishing, and advertising, I decided to jump in with both feet. Drowned History is the result!

It’s the story of Alice and George, two people who were pulled apart by circumstance and thrown back together by the search for an ancient Indian artifact. While their party is visited by strange dreams that seem all too real, George is fighting the re-emergence of his feelings for Alice, who desperately wants to apologize to him for leaving. The evidence leads deep underground, which is where things really start getting strange.

Drowned History is on sale now! It’s $0.99 for the next month, and the price goes up to $2.99 after that. If you have Kindle Unlimited, it’ll be free anytime! Pick it up now while it’s cheap!

And for those of you interested in a print copy, they’ll be available soon. I’ll make an announcement when they’re in my hands and ready to sign, so keep an eye on my social media feeds for more info as it comes!
