As some of you may or may not know, I am getting published! My debut work, which is a historical fiction piece following the story of a Celtic slave girl searching for freedom in Rome, is to be published with New Degree Press in April 2021!
Enid, a Celtic slave, dreams of freedom. Lucius, a baseborn Roman, dreams of acceptance. They are meant to be enemies; instead, they find a love and a faith so dangerous it could cost them everything.Between Two Worlds logline
While I am excited (if a bit nervous) for all that has to take place in between now and then, I would love for YOU to be a part of my publishing journey! I need help with getting the word out when the funding campaign releases and with cool milestones such as a cover reveal, etc. If you are interested in being a part of my launch team or a funding member, (or BOTH!) you may join my temporary launch discord server and sign up for my newsletter in order to receive updates!

But of course, what is a publishing announcement without a blurb so you know what you’re getting into?
Enid, a young Celt, is overjoyed when the youth she admires tells her of his love for her. But her hopes and dreams are shattered when slave traders ambush them and sell Enid off as a slave in Rome. So she buries her past, struggling to survive in a world vastly different from her own.
Illegitimate and rejected by society because of his British ancestry, Lucius is desperate to prove his worth as a Roman. He enlists in the army with hopes of gaining honor, only to lose everything in the process.
Two different souls, one hopeful for change, one seething in bitterness, both caught between two worlds. When they collide, nothing will ever be the same.
Yet Rome is hostile towards these outcasts of society, and Enid must learn to lose one identity in order to gain another, placing her faith and trust in the God of Christiani if she and Lucius are to have any hope for a future together at all.
Interested? Mildly curious? Don’t hesitate! I’d love to have you!

And for now, I’ll leave you with some of my favorite quotes from this story!
“I am caught between two worlds; there is no place for me in this, and yet I have no choice.”
“The waters of Lethe offer only one passage, and woe to the soul that wishes to return through. For we can never go back.”
“And for once, I dared to think of home.”Between Two Worlds
