‘The Plains of Kallanash’: ARCs available

August 17, 2014 Publishing/marketing 8

‘The Plains of Kallanash’ is getting closer to publication! I now have ARCs available, so if anyone out there would like a copy to read for review, please email me at brightmoon@paulinemross.co.uk. I have both mobi and epub formats available (sorry, no print copies yet). Reviews can be posted immediately on Goodreads or your blog, and on Amazon after publication in mid-September.

‘The Plains of Kallanash’ is an epic fantasy adventure with a strong romantic element. Here’s the blurb:

Thousands of years after a magical catastrophe reshaped the world and pulled the moons out of alignment, the secret of magic has seemingly been lost. At the centre of the vast, forbidding Plains of Kallanash lies a land ruled by a secretive religion, whose people fight a never-ending war against the barbarians in the wilderness beyond the border.

Amongst the nobility, double marriages are the norm. Junior wife Mia always dreamed of attracting the attention of the dashing lead husband, but never dared to compete against her lively older sister. Hurst has spent ten frustrating years as junior husband, longing to test his skill with a sword in battle, longing for his beloved Mia to turn to him.

The mysterious death of Mia’s sister thrusts the marriage into turmoil. As Mia and Hurst struggle to adjust and find out what happened, they uncover sinister truths about the ruling religion. But the gods are unforgiving; even Mia’s innocent questions carry a terrible punishment. Hurst is prepared to risk everything to save her, even if it means taking up his sword against the barbarians, his own people, and the gods themselves.

    I’d love to take an ARC but I don’t know if I could commit enough time to it to get a review up by mid-September. But I’ll pass the word on to some friends.

      Thanks, that’s kind. But let me know if you want an ARC anyway, so you can skim over all the changes I made because of your comments. My proofreader (who also beta read for me) commented that the ending was much tighter now, and that’s definitely your influence. 🙂

        Happy to hear that! Sure, why not! I may not have a chance to read it in depth, but a skim is within my schedule, I’m sure. 😀

            It was something I could open on my computer rather than a tablet… Pdf I think. But if that’s not an option, I think epub should work.

    The blurb sounds great, and the epic fantasy with a bit of romance is right up my alley. Not to mention the cover is GORGEOUS (and yes, I do judge). I don’t know that I could get through it before you publish though. I’ve got two books on my list before taking on any others. I may be able to finish them by the end of this month. If I do, I’ll be back by to see if you’re still offering. If you’re not, or if I’m too slow, I’ll be buying my own copy.
