Spotlighting new authors.......

I'm hoping to start a new regular feature here - interviewing new authors whose books aren't one of the "big releases" with a lot of press and buzz behind them and may fly under the radar otherwise. So if you are a debut author and have a book being published this year please drop me an email and I will try to work something out for featuring you and your book.

Although most bloggers do this just for fun and on a small scale, we are passionate about reading and can get a book noticed that would otherwise fall through the cracks.

First up is new author Cynthia Roberts - whose debut novel Wind Warrior - a historical Indian romance debuts June 15th. It is available now as an e-book from Tate Publishing HERE

For now here's a glimpse at her debut novel Wind Warrior and be sure to check back Thursday for my interview with Cynthia :

Leslie Michaels is a visionary, and only those close to her know of her special gift and the visions that come when her mind and body surrender to sleep. Fate has a way of righting many wrongs, and for Leslie it is a destiny that changes her life dramatically. But not before she is forced to flee into the wilderness to escape a murderous trapper bent on claiming her for his very own. Faith and a strong will to survive are her only companions, until she encounters Winnokin, the handsome Seneca war chief who first came to her in her dreams. Not only does he prove to be her rescuer and protector, he teaches her that tragedy can breed happiness and the passion to live and love deeply once again.

Wind Warrior plunges readers into the intimate depths of a relationship that unfolds like a live drama before their eyes while painting an insightful and intriguing portrait of Native Indian life in the 1800s. It is a story of longing, of a wanton need to survive all odds, and a love so strong it conquers human evil. Wind Warrior expresses with cunning words the simple, raw human emotions that hold readers spellbound and captivates their hearts.

  1. Ooh, looks intriguing! The only native american romance I've ever run across is, unfortunately, the dreadful kind. Ever heard of Cassie Edwards? The horror...
