Cover Reveal: The Blue by Nancy Bilyeau

Posted By amy @ 10:17 am | No Comments

The Blue by Nancy Bilyeau

Publication: November 15, 2018
Endeavour Quill

Genre: Historical Fiction

What would you do to possess the most coveted color in the world? The year is 1758, and a headstrong woman artist, 24-year-old Genevieve Planche, is caught up in a high-stakes race to discover the ultimate color, one that threatens to become as deadly as it is lucrative. When Genevieve’s mission is complicated by her falling in love with the chemist behind the formula, she discovers the world of blue is filled with ruthless men and women and how high the stakes really are. The story sweeps readers from the worlds of the silk-weaving refugees of London’s Spitalfields and the luxury-obsessed drawing rooms of Grosvenor Square to the porcelain factory of Derby and, finally, magnificent Sevres Porcelain in the shadow of Versailles. And running through it all: the dangerous allure of the color blue.

“Bilyeau’s sumptuous tale of mystery and intrigue transports the reader into the heart of the 18th century porcelain trade—where the price of beauty was death”’ E.M. Powell, author of the Stanton & Barling medieval mystery series.

Praise for Nancy Bilyeau’s Fiction

“Bilyeau deftly weaves extensive historical detail throughout, but the real draw of this suspenseful novel is its juicy blend of lust, murder, conspiracy, and betrayal.” —Review of The Crown published in Oprah, which made the book a pick of the month.

“English history buffs and mystery fans alike will revel in Nancy Bilyeau’s richly detailed sequel to The Crown.” —Parade magazine review of The Chalice

“The story in The Tapestry is fiction, but it is a sheer joy to have Henry’s court recreated with an eye to the reality of its venality, rather than the trendy Wolf Hall airbrushing of its violence and rapacity. The tone is always modern and light, but with none of the clumsy thigh-slapping faux period language. Bilyeau’s writing is effortless, vivid, gripping and poignant, bringing Tudor England to life with sparkling zest. If you want to see the Reformation from the side of the English people rather than the self-serving court, it is tough to do better than this trilogy.” —Review of The Tapestry by Dominic Selwood, published in The Catholic Herald

“As always, Bilyeau has done her historical homework, bringing the drama, and details of Henry VIII’s court to life. You’re basically watching the rise and fall of Catherine Howard, Thomas Cromwell, Walter Hungerford and Thomas Culpepper through Joanna’s eyes. Her private moments with the king were among my favorites in this book. This a true historical thriller. It’s a Tudor novel full of suspense, intrigue, brutality, and death. It’s a well researched page turner. If you’re looking for an exciting historical read, this will be on your list.” —Review of The Tapestry by Sandra Alvarez for Medievalists.net

“Nancy Bilyeau’s passion for history infuses her books and transports us back to the dangerous world of Tudor England. Vivid characters and gripping plots are at the heart of this wonderful trilogy. Warmly recommended!” —Alison Weir, author of The Marriage Game: A Novel of Queen Elizabeth I and many bestsellers

“Nancy Bilyeau’s polished, inventive debut has all the ingredients of the best historical fiction: a broad cast of characters, well-imagined settings, and vivid story-telling… In Joanna Stafford, Bilyeau has given us a memorable character who is prepared to risk her life to save what she most values, while Stafford’s desperate search for a lost religious relic will satisfy even the most ardent mystery fans.” —Deborah Harkness, author of A Discovery of Witches

Sara Dahmen on Blog Tour for Widow 1881, May 14-25

Posted By amy @ 6:22 am | No Comments

Widow 1881
by Sara Dahmen

Publication Date: February 12, 2018
Coppersmith Press
Paperback & eBook; 312 Pages
ISBN: 978-1640580237

Genre: Historical Fiction/Pioneer/Western
Series: Flats Junction Series, Book #1

 

 

A pregnant widow.

The last Sioux in town.

A half-breed grocer.

An immigrant doctor.

When very carefully proper widow Jane Weber discovers she’s pregnant, she escapes eastern society and 1880’s Boston life to work as a housekeeper in the Dakota Territories. Though Jane secretly researches and assures her new employer that she’s hearty and strong, the rigors of the prairie and the rawness of the people in Flats Junction are more defined than she expects. She must live with the enigmatic Widow Hawks (the last Sioux in town), and attempts to run a household, pick up nursing, and befriend the town’s half-breed grocer. Life in the territories is both simple and difficult, and tries Jane’s character in many more ways than merely learning to survive in the pioneer west. Will her pregnancy prove too much? Will she marry the cowboy who courts her? Or will her wall of lies and glassy cage of respectability shatter?

WIDOW 1881 is the first book in the Flats Junction series.

Praise for Widow 1881

“Author Sara Dahmen has clearly researched the era, vernacular and settings of her richly complex story. She brings into focus the joys and deprivations of life on the American frontier, the rigid proprieties that pertained in relations between the sexes, and the cutting edge of racial hatred that rankled towards the local displaced and marginalized American Indians. She sheds light on fascinating small details of everyday life in 1881—cookery, clothing and medical care. Dahmen also conveys a keen awareness of the sometimes desperate needs of a woman’s heart, as her heroine wavers between her unexpected passion for Patrick and the possibility of a respectable, but unexciting, match with someone else. Captivating and vividly portrayed, “Widow 1881 ” is a delightful read that is refreshing and original as it is entertaining.” – Chanticleer Book Reviews

“It’s easy to write flowery prose; spare language in which every word pulls its weight is much harder. More difficult still is using such prose to paint a picture of rough-and-tumble frontier life while avoiding cliché and giving the reader a viable sense of a bygone era in which life was slower-paced and values meant something. Ms. Dahmen does all this in spades and it’s easy to see why this book won the Grand Prize in the Laramie Awards for Western Fiction.” – Nicole Evelina, multi-award winning author, including an IndieB.R.A.G. Medallion

About the Author

Sara Dahmen is a successful entrepreneur, cookware manufacturer, metalsmith, wife, and mother of three. You can usually find her speaking, knuckle deep in the garden, or banging on a copper sheet at her apprenticeship using tools from the 1800’s. She has published over 100 articles as a contributing editor for local and international publications and spoke at TEDx Rapid City. Usually, she’s enthusiastically writing, but Sara also owns and operates House Copper and Housekeeper Crockery: American kitchenware lines inspired by Jane Weber’s time in the kitchen making coffee and flapjacks.

Jud Widing on Blog Tour for A Middling Sort, May 14-25

A Middling Sort
by Jud Widing

Publication Date: April 4, 2018
eBook & Paperback; 592 Pages
ISBN-13: 978-1985303690

Genre: Historical Fiction

 

 

“Fidget’s Mill was a town full of secrets, populated by people who had no idea how to keep them.”

It is a time of revolution in the American colonies, an epoch in which men of exceptional talent and ambition agitate to reshape the course of human events. Their names will pass into legend: Washington. Adams. Jefferson. Hamilton. Madison. Monroe.

Denton Hedges is there too, and he’s trying his best.

In the inauspicious year of 1767, he volunteers to visit a no-account Massachusetts seaside town called Fidget’s Mill. His goal is simple: secure a non-importation agreement, so that the colonies might adopt a stronger negotiating position with England. There’s no reason for him to get mixed up with a forbidden love triangle, a witch, demons, or the three moneyed families jockeying for control of the town. And yet…

He really is trying his best.

Angelle Petta on Blog Tour for The Artist and The Soldier, May 2018

Posted By amy @ 12:24 pm | No Comments

The Artist and The Soldier
by Angelle Petta

Publication Date: May 1, 2018
Warren Publishing
eBook & Paperback; 336 Pages

Genre: Historical Fiction/LGBTQ

 

 

Two young men come of age and fall in love, set against the backdrop of true events during World War II.

It’s 1938. Bastian Fisher and Max Amsel meet at an American-Nazi camp, Siegfried. Neither have any idea what to do with their blooming, confusing feelings for one another. Before they can begin to understand, the pair is yanked apart and forced in opposite directions.

Five years later, during the heart of World War II, Bastian’s American army platoon lands in Salerno, Italy. Max is in Nazi-occupied Rome where he has negotiated a plan to hire Jews on as ‘extras’ in a movie—an elaborate ruse to escape the Nazis. Brought together by circumstance and war, Bastian and Max find one another again in Rome.

Exploring the true stories of Camp Siegfried and the making of the film, La Porta del Cielo, The Artist and the Soldier is intense, fast moving, and sheds light on largely untouched stories in American and Italian history.

Amazon | Barnes and Noble

Praise for The Artist and the Soldier

“Navigating the complex terrain of the friendship, love and sexual awakening of two young men in the shadow of Nazi occupation, Petta summons tenderness, vulnerability and insight. The Artist and the Soldier reminds us what it means to be human in the face of fascism. A timely book!” -Michaela Carter, author of Further Out Than You Thought

“Petta’s novel reopens historical landscapes–from the woods of Camp Siegfried designed to teach a German boy “his place in the order of the world” to the set of La Porta del Cielo where hundreds of lives were saved through a film. In between, readers follow the stories of Max and Bastian. I am taken with the love between Bastian and Max in part because of its unlikelihood and in part for its inevitability–in times of war, it seems most necessary to open oneself to love. As one character says, “Love is never insignificant. Love is the reason we’re here.” To keep company with Max, Bastian, and the characters in The Artist and The Soldier is to celebrate life and art and the extraordinary capacity of each to heal.” – Nicole Tong, author of How to Prove a Theory

“What an amazing true-life premise for a great story! It made for a compelling read. The narrative of Petta’s novel drew me into her historical fiction world, and held me through to the end. Petta has created an original, well written, and fascinating work that takes me back to one of the most important turning points in modern world history.” – Lauren Nalls, author in “Of Words” series

About the Author

Mallery is a gifted author who drew me into the story from the first word and kept me reading until the very last page…Trouble in Glamour Town is an old fashioned type of murder mystery story and is a very good read.” – Trudi LoPreto for Readers’ Favorite

Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, OWEN is the epic tale of one young man’s incredible courage and resilience as he changes the course of English history.

England 1422: Owen Tudor, a Welsh servant, waits in Windsor Castle to meet his new mistress, the beautiful and lonely Queen Catherine of Valois, widow of the warrior king, Henry V. Her infant son is crowned King of England and France, and while the country simmers on the brink of civil war, Owen becomes her protector.

They fall in love, risking Owen’s life and Queen Catherine’s reputation—but how do they found the dynasty which changes British history – the Tudors?

This is the first historical novel to fully explore the amazing life of Owen Tudor, grandfather of King Henry VII and the great-grandfather of King Henry VIII. Set against a background of the conflict between the Houses of Lancaster and York, which develops into what have become known as the Wars of the Roses, Owen’s story deserves to be told.

Owen – Book One of the Tudor Trilogy is a new addition to story of the Tudors in the historical fiction tradition of C J Sansom, Conn Iggulden, Philippa Gregory and Hilary Mantel.

Following the best-selling historical fiction novel OWEN – Book One of The Tudor Trilogy, this is the story, based on actual events, of Owen’s son Jasper Tudor, who changes the history of England forever.

England 1461: The young King Edward of York has taken the country by force from King Henry VI of Lancaster. Sir Jasper Tudor, Earl of Pembroke, flees the massacre of his Welsh army at the Battle of Mortimer’s Cross and plans a rebellion to return his half-brother King Henry to the throne.

When King Henry is imprisoned by Edward in the Tower of London and murdered, Jasper escapes to Brittany with his young nephew, Henry Tudor. Then after the sudden death of King Edward and the mysterious disappearance of his sons, a new king, Edward’s brother Richard III takes the English Throne. With nothing but his wits and charm, Jasper sees his chance to make young Henry Tudor king with a daring and reckless invasion of England.

Set in the often brutal world of fifteenth century England, Wales, Scotland, France, Burgundy and Brittany, during the Wars of the Roses, this fast-paced story is one of courage and adventure, love and belief in the destiny of the Tudors.

by Edythe Anstey Hanen

Publication Date: December 5, 2017
New Arcadia Publishing
Paperback; 276 Pages
ISBN-13: 978-0981024158

Genre: Literary Fiction

 

 

Maddie is a writer of local history but wants to use her words to unlock the hidden truths that lay just below the surface of her life. But it’s magnetic words on a refrigerator door – Have dreams. Must travel – that push Maddie into the journey she must take: the search for what she has yearned for all her life: independence and freedom from the abusive fanaticism of her parents’ religious beliefs. From Vancouver in the sixties to present day Mexico and a small island on the Canadian west coast, Nine Birds Singing is a love affair with words. It weaves through past glories and youthful hubris in a search for understanding and acceptance. Profound friendship, skewed love and loss all play a role in Maddie’s search for redemption.

Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Praise for Nine Birds Singing

“In Nine Birds Singing, Edythe Anstey Hanen’s appealing narrator Maddie recalls and examines her own search for independence from her parents’ restrictive values. The writer and Maddie, together, gather the reader in to share an intimate, wise, and moving tale.” -Jack Hodgins, Author of Spit Delaney’s Island

“Nine Birds Singing is a finely written book, lovingly crafted, poignant and perceptive. A tale of gradual self-understanding, awakening and ultimate release.” -Nick Bantock, Author of the The Griffin and Sabine Trilogy

“If, like me, you despair for the collapse of the English language take comfort. In Nine Birds Singing you will discover a veritable Aladdin’s Cave of delights. Edythe Anstey Hanen not only uses the basic blocks of language, words, to propel her characters and her story, each word has been selected with meticulous care with attention to its meaning and its ability to resonate. The work is a symphony for the logophile. Don’t miss it.” -Patrick Taylor. USA Today, New York Times and Globe and Mail best-selling author of the Irish Country Doctor series

“Readers will enjoy the unique views and poetic pacing of Nine Birds Singing by Edythe Anstey Hanen. She savours and survives landscapes and relationships in teasing but tasty quick episodes. Her novel takes readers via circular time travelling through decades of Maddie’s life in Canada and Mexico. Enjoy this new voice!” -Bernice Lever, Small Acts, Black Moss Press, 2016
