A Verse for Witches Blurb Reveal

From the March 1, 2024 Newsletter:

Hey, folks. A Verse for Witches is book one of my epic fantasy series scheduled for release in 2025, and I just finished the blurb--the working draft, anyway--that's about to go out to newsletter subscribers, beta readers, and my cover artist. Check it out, if you will:

A mercenary with a sword that sings. A witch who walks in dreams. If their destinies entwine, empires will fall.

 Tsing was in love. Once. Now a blade, a horse, and a lucrative quest are all he needs. So, after an incredible night of passion with a green-eyed witch, he does what he always does—pays her handsomely and escapes at full gallop.

 Erin is an indentured drudge—longing for freedom to walk her own path. So, the gold received after accidentally drinking a forbidden aphrodisiac is balm to her shame. She’ll put the incident behind her—until she finds her path to becoming a master dream walker is shared by the one who caused her shame.

 Tsing is named the orphan king in a prophecy—Erin, the witch who’ll find his queen. She’ll succeed—keeping her mission a secret, even from him, unless …

 Well, the effects of the aphrodisiac they shared might be permanent.

 Can the two of them find a queen to share his throne, stay a step ahead of the demons who hunt them, and fulfill the prophecy? Or will their snowballing feelings divert them from their quest, freeing a spreading evil to swallow mankind?

 A Verse for Witches is the thrilling first book in the Song of Tsing series. If you like sword and sorcery on an epic scale, with a bit of romance thrown in, this quest is for you.

So, there you have it. I did a poll in my newsletter (if you want to become a subscriber, click on the Newsletter tab at the top of this blog), and the reaction has been very positive, so far.

Progress Notes:

I passed the 101k word mark this morning on A Verse for Witches. With only a few chapters to go, I'm well ahead of my deadline to get the first draft to my editor. Copies for beta readers will be available toward the end of April. If you're interested in becoming a beta reader, subscribe to my newsletter and join my ARC Team.

That's it, for now. Happy Reading!
