Together at Last...

I published my entire Alexander series at

The story about this series is a long one (so I will abridge and not bore you...)

They were published in Australia by Jacobyte Books, and did very well. unfortunately, Jacobyte folded just as they were about to publish book IV, and so the series stopped. And I got a lot of letters from readers begging me to find another publisher. Now. But publishing moves at the pace of a snail, and I thought it was unfair of me to withold the end of the series. So I have put them on Lulu and made the price as low as possible. Remember, I'm paying for each book to be made into a paperback, so I can't charge less than it costs to make the darn things - but I'm shaving my profits on the paperbacks and making the e-books 3$ each - very affordable - so that everyone can get a copy.

Anyhow, I still own all the rights, so anyone wanting to make a movie out of them please contact me. I have Brad Pitt and Leonardo Di Caprio waiting for the green light...LOL

Here is the Blurb for book 1:

Ashley is a one of the elite, a time-travel journalist who has fought to prove herself in a world that that believes her road in life was paved by her parents' money and her title.
After winning a prestigious award she is chosen to travel through time and interview a historical figure. Choosing her childhood hero Alexander the Great, she is sent back in time for less than a day to find and interview a man whose legend has survived to the present day. He mistakes her for Persephone, goddess of the dead, and kidnaps her, stranding her in his own time.
What follows, after she awakes under a pomegranate tree, is a hilarious, mind-bending tale of a modern woman immersed in the ancient throes of sex, love, quite a bit of vino, war, death, and ever so much more.

Sounds like fun. :)

The only nit I have is that they would have drunk oĆ­nos, not vino. :)

Oh, nit away, lol. I'm not sure I wrote everything historically correct, but I had a good time trying! lol!

hey thanks for visiting my blog! and to your point, i don't know that i "knew" what a hook was before the crapometer fest started, but after reading a bazillion of them, i've come to think of a "good" one like the back flap of a paperback. if it's enough to draw you in, give you an overview, then you're good to go.

the hook you submitted didn't meet that criteria -- it didn't have the overview -- but as i said, it definitely drew me in. so, very close to complete. :-)

Thank you for being a part of my life this past year and making it so much richer!
