An Ordinary Knight

Cover Reveal


H.L.Burke has a new release coming out on Nov. 9th.

An Ordinary Knight: A Fairy Cursed Fable

Blurb:Stuck in a humiliating position as the Royal Kennel Guard, Sir Percy sees little hope for anything other than an obscure fate. After all, in the Kingdom of Ithelia, you need a fairy to guide you to greatness, and fairies just don’t bother with knights like him. 
However, when Percy catches the eyes of the sheltered Princess Matilda, his world expands in new and frightening ways. 
A victim of an ill-planned Christening, Matty has spent her life in a locked tower, hiding from pixie attacks. Now she’ll do anything to escape. And if that means dragging Percy along for a cross country search for Prince Charming, so be it. 
But not all Prince Charmings are what they seem, and as Matty’s plight grows more desperate, Percy finds himself losing his heart. Does a lowly knight have what it takes to uncurse a princess?

An Ordinary Knight is available at Amazon.    The pre-order is $0.99.

Revisions with YouTube

I am in the process of revising/editing my WIP. I could say for the last time, but let’s be real. It’s never the last time. Recently, I’ve discovered I love YouTube. There may be nothing on network TV, but there’s always something on YouTube. This week I’ve been checking out videos on Scrivener, indie publishing, and writing in general. I found this one and thought I would share.  Katytastic has some hints about that first read through and how to use the printed version as you edit/revise. Some of these I already do, others I will try for the next manuscript.

I still have a poll going on, vote for the name of the town in my WIP. If you haven’t voted, please do.  Who doesn’t want to name a town?

Now, tune in tomorrow for my cover reveal. You don’t want to miss that!


Self-promotion Fun

I have a self-published collection of short stories coming out soon. Unlike my first venture into self-publishing, I want to push this one a bit.

Tales of Christmas in the South by Caren Rich

It contains three short stories, a small quick read for Christmas.  Each story  has a different theme and tone. The first has a twilight zone feel and is light fantasy (previously unpublished). I’m not sure if that is a genre, but it fits. The second story is a bittersweet Christian story of love and loss. I know not everyone will be comfortable with a Christian view point so this is your warning. The third is the Fruitcake which was released last year. All three are part of the same series and this is the first time they will be together in one volume. I am planning the launch for October 1. That gives me plenty of time to finish the upload and write a few promotion pieces.

I am very nervous about asking for help in publicizing the release. If you can, I could use help with the following:

  1. Cover Reveal- a short post of the new release cover with a blurb and information on links.
  2. In-depth Release- a post on the new release with blurb and more information (your choice) on either the writer or one of the short stories.
  3. A Guest blog post of your choice
  4. Buy the book (only $0.99)
  5. Give an honest review of the book.

If you have any ideas for something different please let me know. Contact me at: ckrich812(at)gmail(dot)com

Alicia- Cover Reveal

One of the great things about having a blog is helping out cover reveals. Today I get to do just that.  Gloria Weber has a new short story coming out on August 18. You can catch her hear on August 19th for a guest post. If you haven’t read her blog, I highly recommend it.  So here you go…….

Leon has decided it is better to remain silent and accused of Alicia’s murder than admit the truth. The truth, well… that’s so unbelievable it’s crazy. Not that Detective Dorndorf believes a word that comes out of Leon’s mouth. Dorndorf just wants a confession and figures dragging Leon to the last spot Alicia was seen might just pry it out of him. Will the detective’s plan work or will the truth come out?
