Last year, when I released my first book, the anticipation was palpable. I nervously waited to see if anybody would want to read what I had written.
First, there were a couple of pre-orders from family members, then on the third day, a sale that was from somebody I did not know! It was official; I was a writer.
With each subsequent book that I released, the number of people reading my books grew, but I never expected what happened today. In less than 24 hours, more people have added my new book to their to be read list than what I sold in my first two months as a published author.
Choosing to become a writer is something I have dreamed of since my early 20's. To see it coming to fruition now inspires me to keep writing and sharing my imagination. I have so many more adventures in the realm of Merceria to share.
Thank you to every single person who has chosen to read one of my books. I hope you enjoy the adventures as much as I did creating them.
It is hard to believe that this time last year I revealed the cover of my first book Servant of the Crown. The journey this past year has been amazing mixed in with a bit of stress as we learn all that is involved in being a self-published author in the digital 21st century.
I want to thank every person that has read one of my books, and especially my reader teams who have made this my best book so far! Additionally, a huge shout out to Christie Kramberger who dealt with my last minute cover changes with calmness, and efficiently created a cover that truly symbolizes the book within.
Without further ado, I would like to reveal my new book cover! Heart of the Crown is available for pre-order now, and will be released on September 18, 2018.
For as long as he can remember, Alric dreamed of being a hero; of defeating a dragon and saving the princess, but his royal position would never allow it, until…
The arrival of the Mercerian Emissaries demands a princely escort, and being neither the heir, nor the spare, he is the perfect choice. Used to a lifetime of comfort and ease, he expects this duty to be as tiresome as all the others.
His tranquil life is upended from the beginning, as havoc seems to follow these dignitaries everywhere, causing him all sorts of grief. From fighting unknown creatures to defending the life of a royal, he discovers that becoming a hero is much more dangerous than he ever imagined. No matter what the outcome, his life will never be the same.
Heart of the Crown is book three in the Heir to the Crown series. If you like contests of skill, courtly intrigue and diplomatic disasters, then you will love Paul J Bennett's tale of a prince who desires greatness.
Pre-order your copy of Heart of the Crown soon, and witness the dream become a reality.
