Today is a big day in blog land, as it's the official launch of M. Pax's latest book, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear. But the launch is just the start of it. Mary is also hosting the blogosphere's first ever jousting tournament. Several knights are participating in the tournament, and the contest lasts all week. Stop by here to cheer on the knights and you'll be entered into a drawing to win one of five ebook copies of The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear.
Before I get to all the scoop on the Hetty launch, I have to share an update of my NaNoWriMo progress. I'm really excited, as I met my goal for the weekend and actually made it past the 20,000 word mark. 20,506 to be exact. I'm thrilled and feel like I'm really getting into my Ghosts of Aquinnah story as I go along. Signing up for this challenge has been a fantastic motivational tool for me so far. So here's hoping I make it past the halfway point this week. To my NaNo buddies, I hope you had a productive weekend as well! :)
And now back to today's big launch. Here is everything you need to know, courtesy of M. Pax herself.
The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear
A New Adult Urban Fantasy, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear is the first book in a new series. And it’s now out! The main character, Hetty, is a twenty-two-year-old, stumbling about in an effort to become a full-fledged adult. She struggles with self-esteem, weight, relationships, and making the transition between college and the real world.
Graduation from community college isn’t the magic elixir Hetty Locklear counts on for becoming an adult. Her parents, who work the Renaissance fair circuit, insist she spend part of the summer with them. Hetty doubts pretending to live in the Middle Ages will help her find her way.
To make it worse, an entity haunts her at her dead-end job, warning her of a dangerous man she doesn’t know. The ghost leads her to a lover who has a lot of secrets. He pulls her farther into peril and into a strange, hidden world of genetic experimentation.
New Adult Urban Fantasy with a contemporary sci-fi twist. Mature content.
Available as an ebook at Amazon / Amazon UK / Smashwords / iTunes / Kobo
