Happy Book Birthday: ASHAMET, DESERT BORN by Terry Jackman

“Fascinating…very engaging!” — SFCrowsnest

Ashamet-Cover

A desert world. A warrior nation that worships its emperor as a god. But for Ashamet, its prince, a future filled with danger…

Ashamet is confident his swordsmanship, and his arranged marriage, will be enough to maintain the empire’s peace. But when a divine symbol magically appears on his arm, closely followed by an attempt on his life, he no longer knows who to trust. Worse, the strange attraction he feels toward a foreign slave could be another trap. As events unravel, too fast, Ashamet must find out if this innocent young male is a tool for his enemies–or the magic key to his survival.

“Ashamet, Desert-Born” is a debut adventure fantasy with an exotic Arabian-style setting and elements of same-sex romance.

Happy 100 to “The Chocolatier’s Wife”

Cindy Lynn Speer’s Amazon bestseller “The Chocolatier’s Wife has just received its 100’s Amazon review! The reviewer gives Cindy the 5-stars and says:

What a delightful book! Cindy Lynn Speer weaves a tale of murder, mystery, magic, fantasy, history, and romance that keeps the pages turning. Seriously, it would fit in all of these genres. The story of William and Tasmin is sweet and charming, told through letters and narrative beginning at their births, when a spell chose them for each other to be married. William lives in the South, and, horror of horrors to his family, his intended is an herb witch from the North. William, who owns a chocolate shop, is framed for the murder of the bishop, and Tasmin decides it’s time to go South and save his butt, even though he still hasn’t called for her to be married yet. She starts investigating, and their love grows as they turn over clues and tease each other with playful flirting. Speer has a wonderful imagination and talent for spinning words, drawing us into a world we never knew existed. I didn’t want to put this one down!”

Happy 100 to Cindy!

Cover Reveal: ASHAMET, DESERT BORN, by Terry Jackman

Ashamet-Cover

Dragonwell Publishing is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Ashamet, Desert Born, by Terry Jackman, and with it its beautiful cover!

Publication date: May 30, 2015

//////////////////////////

“Headstrong was the least I knew they said about me. Unpredictable, a wicked sense of humour? Gods, I hoped so.”

A desert world. A population of 100 males to every female. And for Ashamet, its prince, a suddenly uncertain future…

All Ashamet wants is the warrior life he already has. But then a divine symbol appears on his arm, closely followed by an attempt on his life. Now nothing’s simple any longer, even less so when a new and very foreign slave seems shocked by both his new surroundings – and his master’s amorous attentions.

Could this innocent young male hold the key to Ashamet’s survival? And to his heart?

“Ashamet, Desert Born”, is a debut adventure fantasy with an exotic Arabian-style setting and strong elements of same-sex romance.

About the Author 

Terry Jackman is a mild-mannered married lady who teaches (though not in school) and lives in a pretty English village, complete with an ancient stone cross and a duckpond.

Well, that’s one version.

The other Terry may be a surprise to those who only know the first one. Apart from once being the most qualified professional picture framer in the world, and as such responsible for ten years’ worth of articles, guest appearances, seminars, study guides and exam papers, she is also the coordinator of all the British Science Fiction Association writers’ groups, called Orbits, is a freelance editor, and an assistant editor for Albedo One magazine in Ireland.

She wrote her first story in infant school, but only remembers because of the harrowing experience of having to read it out to the class. Maybe that’s why it took a considerable time and a lot of encouragement to get her to do anything like that again.
