USA Today Happily Ever After has my 24 hour exclusive cover reveal for my new book in the Gods of Egypt series: GHOST OF THE NILE. Here’s a teaser of the cover, and you can hop over to USAT/HEA for the entire cover and the first 500 words or so of the book! I plan to have GHOST OF THE NILE on sale at all the usual ebook outlets in just a few days (and as a paperback from Amazon CreateSpace soon).
Another beautiful cover from Frauke Spanuth of Croco Designs…
Here’s the story:
Betrayed, murdered, and buried without proper ceremony, Egyptian warrior Periseneb is doomed to roam the gray deserts of the dead as a ghost for all eternity.
But then the goddess of truth offers him a bargain: return to the world of the living as her champion for 30 days. If he completes his mission, he’ll be guaranteed entry into Paradise. Periseneb agrees to the bargain but, when he returns to the living world, two hundred years have passed and nothing is quite as he expected.
Neithamun is a woman fighting to hang onto her family’s estate against an unscrupulous nobleman who desires the land as well as the lady. All seems lost until a mysterious yet appealing ex-soldier, Periseneb, appears out of nowhere to help her fight off the noble’s repeated attacks.
Meanwhile, Periseneb’s thirty days are rushing by, and he’s powerless against the growing attraction between himself and Neithamun. But their love can never be. For his Fate is to return to the Afterlife, and Death cannot wed with Life…
