ARCs and New Releases!

That’s right! You’ve been waiting for it! Here it is:

My next book, ALL FOR ONE, will be out on June 18, 2018.

This time around, I am offering a limited number of e-ARCs.

What’s an e-ARC?

And ARC is an Advanced Reader Copy, which publishers/authors send out prior to the release date in order to get early reviews, blog posts, and in general create buzz about their book. In this case, I am offering electronic copies only (but you can choose what format you’d like, be it kindle or something else).

If you would be willing to leave an Amazon or Goodreads review once the book is out, or create a blog post prior to the 18th, please leave a comment below and I’ll add you to my list. ARCs are available on a first come, first served basis.

What’s this book even about? 

If you missed my earlier ShoreIndie posts, here’s the gist: ALL FOR ONE is a gender-bent, slightly steampunk retelling of The Three Musketeers set in an alternate version of 1860s Montreal.

In 1862, the Republic of Quebec has a constitutional monarchy, established ninety years before by Marie Antoinette, who fled France’s revolution. Under the influence of its matriarchal leaders, Quebec is the first country to grant equal rights to all citizens, regardless of gender.

Louise Drapeau is willing and eager to take advantage of these rights as she travels from her small town to the capital to join the most elite fighting force in the country, the all-female Queen’s Guard, also known as the Musketeers. She’s barely in the city twenty-four hours, however, when she uncovers a plot to kill the queen, headed by Quebec’s First Minister, Cardinal Lefebvre.

With the help of her three new friends—Portia, Athena, and Arabella—Louise must unravel the increasingly complex politics of the palace in order to not only save the queen but to keep neutral Quebec out of the Civil War raging just a few hundred miles south in the United States.

Surely this will be enough to get her into the Musketeers—if she can survive.

If that piques your interest, let me know in the comments!
