Ygerna a Hot New Release!

Yes! I haven’t even started the big ad push for Ygerna yet, and it is already a Hot New Release in Arthurian Fiction on Amazon! Here’s the screen shot to prove it:

Ygerna Hot New Release

And you saw right — that is Stephen King behind me. 😀

I was a bit worried about this one, given that the material is not exactly easy. But the description makes it clear enough that Ygerna’s journey from victim to warrior begins with rape, so hopefully those who do not want to deal with that kind of darkness will stay away. Many of us have had to live through that experience, though, and I wanted to tell the story of a woman who learns to become the hero of her own life, despite having been a victim.

Of course, once again I was unable to write something that would be easy on potential readers …

I have another project up my sleeve for Nanowrimo, where I’m hoping to restrain my dark side a bit more than I usually do. More on that in a few weeks. And yes, I’m trying to bend my imagination to the more commercial. Eventually I want to make a real living from this writing gig, after all. And I have slowly come to the conclusion that the kinds of books I most want to write (and read) aren’t going to do it.

  1. Hi there Ruth

    Thank you so much for letting us know that Ygerna is available; I bought it immediately, as I have bought everything you’ve written, I think! I adore your writing, and I appreciate it that you don’t stick to the easy storylines. I earnestly hope that you can find a way to write what you want to write and still make money. If it were up to me, you would.

    Kind regards

    Steve
    P.S. I own maybe 4,000 books, but I now much prefer reading on a Kindle. Please continue to publish there first!
