The Peacock's Mother by Rachel Tsoumbakos

The day is finally here when the preorder is available for the second book in Melkorka’s Saga.

All the details are below.


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?

The cover reveal for the first book in Freydis’ saga is now here!

I know I should be working hard on book two in Melkorka’s Saga — and I am, mostly. However, sometimes I need a break to look ahead and sort out the other books that I have planned.

Last week was one of those times.

This means that you all get to check out the gorgeous new cover for the upcoming first book in Freydis Eiriksdottir’s saga.

For those who subscribe to my newsletter (and you totally should join up now if you haven’t), you’ll know all about Freydis. She is a fierce and independent character from the sagas who is believed to have been one of the few Vikings who travelled to North America.

She is also a character who will appear in the upcoming Netflix series, Vikings: Valhalla, and of which I will be covering rather extensively over at Monsters & Critics.

However, in the meantime, you can check out the cover for the first book in the series below. Currently, the book is untitled so I have just used her name as a placeholder so readers can get a feel for how the cover will look in its entirely.

Let me know in the comments what you think and (hopefully) I should have a preorder link soon for this book.

When ‘Feisty Heroines’ goes live and Mark Hamill blows up your Twitter account — all in the same day!

So, the last 24 hours have been… interesting.

Currently, I’m on the mad release date push to make the Feisty Heroines collection a USA Today bestseller after its release date of June 16. To say that the last few days have been crazy is a gross understatement. However, a couple of other things have added to the madness.

First off, Feisty Heroines managed to beat The Witcher on one of Amazon’s major lists. The. Freaking. Witcher. That book has been top of the charts ever since Netflix turned it into a TV series.

In my excitement, I tweeted about it to Lauren S Hissrich, who is the showrunner for The Witcher.

And she totally liked my tweet.

That in itself was pretty exciting.

However, not long after I found a meme on Facebook that was pretty funny. You can check it out below.


Hilarious, right?

Because of that, I totally tagged Mark Hamill in a tweet before going to bed.

This morning, I woke up and discover that Mark Hamill has gone and replied to my tweet with his own sausage quote.

So, because he posted one everyone has taken to tweeting a Star Wars sausage quote and now I can;t even check my mentions because it is filled to the brim with Star Wars tweets.

How cool is that?!

So, if you want to follow along on Twitter, you can do so here. And, since the momentum is happening on Twitter right now, I would really appreciate a retweet of this tweet to help plug Feisty Heroines as well.

Anyway, I hope you are all having as wonderful a day as I am and I promise that this will be the last email I send until July 1 😉

And, for the record, Mark’s sausage quote was, “It’s sausage… all of it.”
