The book was released in 2019 and is the second in a series describing the conflict between the rebels against the autocratic Emperor Frederick II in Outremer.
The book is perfect for fans of serious historical fiction and anyone interested in the history of the Holy Land in the era of the crusades.
In other news, despite the cancelation of the London Book Fair, my literary agent has been in touch with potential commercial publishers for four of my titles. Interest has been very encouraging, but there is no "deal" yet. Two publishers are considering a total of four different titles, and internal review is expected to last eight to twelve weeks.
Meanwhile Keep safe!
