Stuck in the covidaggedon with nothing to read? Let me change that for you!

How’s everyone coping during the coronavirus pandemic? I hope you are all well-stocked and well prepared and that you aren’t currently suffering from financial or work-related hardships.

I am ever thankful for my day job, which is as a writer for The Inquisitr. Normally, I work remotely and, with the current climate, people are eagerly reading up all that they can regarding COVID-19, which means my job should remain stable during these troubling times.

Speaking of reading, for those that are stuck at home and are looking for something to do, I have currently dropped the prices of my box sets on Amazon from March 23 to 30.

This means that you can grab both the complete box sets for both the Viking Secrets and Valkyrie Secrets series — that’s seven books in total — for less than TWO DOLLARS!

(Disclaimer: U.S. and U.K. Amazon accounts only, unfortunately.)

For those that are really struggling, Amazon has also made their Kindle Unlimited service FREE for the next two months, according to The New York Post. This service is great for those who have a huge reading addiction but a budget that just doesn’t quite cover it. For a flat rate (which for the next two months for U.S. residents comes to a total of zero dollars), readers can enjoy as many books as they like. The vast majority of my books are in the Kindle Unlimited program, so all can be enjoyed entirely for free during the crisis.

Plus, if you decide you love Kindle Unlimited, once the two months are up, the regular price is only $9.99 per month!

All the links you need are below. And, please be aware that some of these links are affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small amount from qualifying purchases. However, my earnings will not affect what you pay on your purchases at Amazon at all.

Also, considering I have already read my own books, hit me up with some awesome book series you’ve read lately. Currently, I have just started the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

Melkorka’s Story Continues In ‘The Peacock’s Mother — Cover And Blurb Reveal

For those who have read The Irish Viking Princess and are desperate to know when Melkorka’s story will continue, I have some exciting news for you!

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliates links. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

While I do not have a pre-order link just yet for Book Two, I am currently in the middle of writing the book. Book One dealt with Melkorka’s transition from royalty to slave as well as her doomed love affair with Hoskuld and the birth of their son, Olaf. The next book will see Olaf traveling to Ireland in order to prove his and Melkorka’s heritage.

I also have a cover reveal and blurb for the new book, titled The Peacock’s Mother. So, let me know what you think by commenting on this post 😉

The Peacock's Mother book cover


No matter how deeply you bury it, the truth will always surface and love will rear its ugly head.

Melkorka’s son, Olaf, is grown now and considered the finest lad in Iceland. However, the sins of his parents still lay shadows over him.

Wanting to prove his mother’s heritage, Olaf embarks on a journey that sees him covering the waters and entering Ireland. However, this task is fraught with danger and he risks losing everything when his longship crashes into Irish waters.

Can he prove who he is to Ireland before he can prove his heritage back home in Iceland?

Meanwhile, Melkorka continues to struggle with love as her neighbour, Thorbjorn, attempts to woo her.

Can she forget how much Hoskuld hurt her and finally find love?

Fantastic Realms — Now Only 99 Cents! Plus, Cover Reveal And Excerpt From ‘The Curse Of The Lagarfljot Lindworm’

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliates links. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

As I mentioned earlier, I have a new story in the Fantastic Realms anthology. The story included is called The Curse of the Lagarfljot Lindworm and is set within the Viking Secrets universe but features a character not mentioned before. For those that have read Vikings: The Truth about Thora and Ragnar, the story might be a familiar one as a lindworm also features there. This story, though, delves into an older tale, one I mentioned in Thora’s saga but never really expanded on. The Curse of the Lagarfljot Lindworm finally does this.

Included in the anthology are plenty of other great fantasy stories so make sure you grab your copy now — especially since it is currently on sale for only 99 cents!

I can now reveal the cover design for this short story as well as an excerpt from it. All the details are below!

The Curse of the Lagarfljot Lindworm

BLURB for The Curse of the Lagarfljot Lindworm

Briet is tasked with a momentous task: kill the creature she has raised from birth.

If she does not do so, the entire countryside will suffer.

Given as a gift, Briet’s mother presents her daughter with a heath snake. However, it grows and grows until it is big enough to terrorize the communities. With the help of two monster-hunting warriors, Briet must do the unthinkable in order to survive.


The icy waters of the Lagarfljot chilled her to the core as Briet ran her fingers through the current. Milky white water ran over her knuckles, turning her skin red with the cold.

It was the perfect place. Yet, it was also the worst.

She tried not to think of how her lindworm would suffer when she threw him into the lake, of how he would struggle against the numbing cold. A single tear dripped down her face as she turned to the beast behind her, the one that she had so tenderly raised and the treachery of what she was about to do slayed her.

“Come here, Ormur,” Briet said as she beckoned the beast.

Slithering forward, she tried to submit the sheen of his scales to her memory. Swallowing back a sob, she fought against the emotion threatening to consume her.

Ormur must never know about her betrayal, not until it was too late.

His body brushed against her leg and she reached down to run her fingers over the cold smoothness of his scales. Muscles rippled under her touch as the animal gently wrapped its body around her and flickered his tiny fins back and forth.

Silent tears fell as Briet closed her eyes. Biting down on her lip, she fought against the lump in her throat. If Ormur discovered what she was about to do, he would turn against her.

She wanted to save her beast, to take him far away. But, if her entire village were to stay safe, she had no choice but to end his life.

Twining her hand around Ormur, she opened her eyes and lowered herself to his level. Briet hugged the animal, allowing herself a moment or two to be lost in his embrace. Ormur coiled around her, his body gliding over hers, twisting and turning in his own version of an embrace.

“It’s time for you to make another journey,” Briet said and Ormur slowly uncoiled himself, as though he understood what she had just said.

His small dark eyes looked at her, unblinking as his mouth opened, exposing layers of jagged teeth and a serpentine tongue as he hissed his response.

Even though she knew he would never harm her, she also knew that anyone who was ever considered a threat to her would suffer the consequence of those teeth.

This was the reason she had to do the unthinkable.

Reaching over the beast, Briet picked him up and Ormur wrapped himself around her shoulders. Standing, she stepped into the milky water. Ormur was heavy in her arms as she trekked out further, her robes drifting in the slight current and her hair tugging against it as the water rose to her waist.

“I will see you again, Ormur, but not for some time,” she said as she hefted the beast over her head and flung him far out into the depths of the Lagarfljot.

Her tears turned to ice as Ormur sunk quickly and she finally allowed her wretched sobs to escape. The sound echoed out over the water and mingled with the gurgle of her sinking lindworm.

And, that’s when the trouble really began.

Feisty Heroines: Excerpt From ‘The Sleeping Viking Beauty’

After last week’s cover reveal for my inclusion in the Feisty Heroines anthology, I have been asked about a sneak peek. And, as they say, ask and ye shall receive 😉

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliates links. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

As well as the excerpt, I also have an awesome giveaway for you all! So, if you want to win a $25 gift card for Barnes & Noble as well as three paperback books (including one of mine) all you have to do is click on the image below.

February giveaway for Feisty Heroines


Brunhild’s gaze scanned the battlefield. She could see the bright red of defeat splattered across the landscape. The smell assaulted her and she swallowed hard against it. Even though bodies lay everywhere, to her, it was the scent of victory.

Looking down at her feet, she saw the lifeless corpse of Hjalmgunnar. He should be standing next to her, waiting for Odin to congratulate him.

Instead, Brunhild had cut him down.

She tried not to dwell on her punishment as she continued to survey the fallen. She could see her sisters as they moved among the dead. Occasionally, one would drop to her knees, checking for life and helping a warrior cross into their new life as a treasured member of Odin’s army. Other times, the Valkyrie would pause before moving on, the man obviously not worthy yet. If they were to fight against the gods in the end times, the warriors selected had to be in peak condition.

A whimper startled Brunhild. A man lay close by, his blond hair streaked with blood. Blue eyes stared at her as his hand reached out.

“You are a Valkyrie?” he asked before coughing.

Brunhild nodded and knelt before him. Her coat whipped around her, slapping at her shoulders, an unfamiliar sensation after her swan-feathered one was stolen. She was captivated by the man’s gaze, by the color of his eyes.

The man’s fingers grazed across her arm. His touch jolted to her core and she gasped.

She could smell the blood coating him but, underneath, she could sense the courage in this man. He was raw with it and she had never witnessed such internal strength. He was perfect for their army.

Yet, she hesitated.

If you want to buy Feisty Heroines, you can do so here. Currently, the anthology is only 99 cents and once purchased you qualify for a bunch of freebies from participating authors!
