My latest novel has launched at last! The Trojan Legacy is now on Amazon as an eBook, and you can find it here.
This is a full-length novel, in the same genre of Romantic Mystery in which my first two full-length novels were written. The action takes place in two different countries, in two different time frames.
Regina, a new immigrant to Australia, seeks out the family whose name she has found in her grandmother’s papers. Together with piano-playing barman Bobby, she unravels the history of an ancient diadem which was unearthed from the ruins of Troy, but which later disappeared at the end of the Second World War. A novel of mystery and romance, set in both modern-day Melbourne and 1960s South Africa, the story unfolds against a unique slice of South African history.
Thank you to all those of you who helped me to choose between the two covers for this novel. It was (to misquote the words of Wellington after the Battle of Waterloo) a close-run thing. There were so many points in favour of both covers that I felt quite bad being able to choose only one. The cover I chose was (A) – the brighter, deeper blue background with the bigger lettering. With its vibrant colour, it has a resemblance to the cover of The Epidaurus Inheritance, and even though they are not part of a series, they are the same genre. The main deciding factor was because it really does stand out better in a thumbnail, which is what most Kindle readers will be looking at when (hopefully) choosing it as their next book to read.
Visibility is the key in every sense, it seems. I have no doubt that the readers who enjoyed my previous books will enjoy this one as much – if not more so – but they just have to find it first. Unfortunately, since the last time I put a book up on Amazon, in October 2012, there are literally hundreds of thousands more books available than there used to be, and we’re all pushing and shoving for elbow room in the same arena.
So if you happen to be one of those readers who enjoyed either The Epidaurus Inheritance or Benicio’s Bequest, why not pop over to Amazon.com, click on the cover to read the first two chapters, and see how you like it. You can even click on the book cover in the sidebar to your right and it’ll take you to my book’s product page in the Amazon store nearest you.
Go on – you know you want to…!
