1,000 new readers - maybe


Winner of Global Ebooks Award for Best Historical Fiction


'Highly recommended for fans of historical fiction' - Sharon E.Cathcart

Book 1 in the Troubadours Series
1150 in Provence, where love and marriage are as divided as Christian and Muslim.
A historical thriller set in Narbonne just after the Second Crusade. On the run from abuse, Estela wakes in a ditch with only her lute, her amazing voice, and a dagger hidden in her petticoats. Her talent finds a patron in Alienor of Aquitaine and more than a music tutor in the Queen's finest troubadour and Commander of the Guard, Dragonetz los Pros. Weary of war, Dragonetz uses Jewish money and Moorish expertise to build that most modern of inventions, a papermill, arousing the wrath of the Church. Their enemies gather, ready to light the political and religious powder-keg of medieval Narbonne

1,000 new readers

That's what I'm hoping for in the next 5 days, with 'Song at Dawn' free as a kindle and 3 print copies of 'Bladesong' on giveaway at goodreads. I'll update the Troubadours page on facebook with numbers of downloads each day, to see how close I get to the magic number of 1,000 new readers by Sunday night.

Nowadays, people collect free books without necessarily ever looking at them, let alone reading them, but here's hoping the one will lead to the other, and that reading Book1 will lead to reading Book 2.

This is the only book I've enrolled in amazon's exclusive program, and this is my first experiment with amazon's free days so I am curious as to how the whole process will work. I have given advance notices to book listing sites and considered what might work for me from Adele Ward's blog on going viral.

Now we'll see what happens!
