Happy New Year everyone! The celebrations are still ongoing in my home, especially with the release of Dragon Knight’s Shield next Friday! I hope you’ve taken advantage of the pre-order special price for the digital at $2.99! Grab your copy now!
In addition, my second book, Dragon Knight’s Medallion is now available on audio through Amazon Audible. Ewan MacRae is the narrator, and he did a phenomenal job. You can listen to a sample on the Audible page below the book. Click here to go on over.
FACEBOOK PARTY! Next Saturday, I’m hosting a party on facebook to celebrate the release of Dragon Knight’s Shield. Hop on over and RSVP, because once we reach 200 guests, I’m doing a giveaway. Enter here!
I’m going to shake things up a wee bit in 2016 on my blog. “Medieval Mondays” will continue on and off through-out the year, but I’m thinking of adding a “Monthly Travel Tour” blog series. I will be sharing pictures and stories of my travels, so look for this to start in January or early February.
“Quote for the Week” will continue, but I might be switching up “Friday Feast” to a new name and have it a few times a month. Here are a list of some of the names:
Mary’s Feast, Mary’s Cuisine, Mary’s Tavern Recipes (I really like this one), or Mary’s Bites. Let me know which one you like.
Here’s a yummy dip for the new year weekend! Slainte!
