E is for...


EXCITING!

This is my tentative book cover. I say tentative because Cedar Fort's design team is going to tweak it a little. Exciting, isn't it?

Perhaps it's time to share a bit more of my story with you. In The Peasant Queen, as the title implies, Krystal starts out a mere peasant. But she's not even a peasant of the kingdom of Fayterra, where the story takes place. She's from Brynne, two kingdoms over. How does she end up in Fayterra, you may ask? (I won't tell, but you can ask ;)) Let's just say the evil king (nameless for a few more posts) and magic play a part.

Exciting, isn't it?

Krystal's got spunk. Every main character should. Do you think she'd stand for this upheaval in her life? Of course not. Silly king should have chosen a more submissive victim. But then, that wouldn't be much of a story would it?

And what would be a romantic fantasy novel without the romantic interest? You'll meet him in a few posts, too. Trust me--he is so worth the wait!

It looks great. When you get to J I'll post how Jealous I am that you have a cover and release date - even if they are tentative.

I liked what I've been able to read so far, and am looking forward to reading the whole book.

Thanks, Don! Your time is coming :) I only have a cover because CFI approved the cover that had already been done for me--they just want to make some changes to it so I have no idea how it will look on the book yet!
