Well, the calendar has gone and done it again. It’s dragged me kicking and screaming into my least favorite season of them all. Fall – or should I say foul? – means mucky leaves, darkening days, and trying to figure out people’s bizarre obsession with pumpkin spice everything.
However, this fall does bring some exciting news in regards to my writing world….
It’s finally time to preorder your copy of The Complete Set of my historical fantasy Domna!
And no, it does not come in a pumpkin spice version!
If you’re unfamiliar with Domna, I released it as a six-part serialized novel earlier this year. I also released The Complete Series in paperback format back in February. And let me just say, at over 600 pages, that book was a monster of a tome!
For those of you who aren’t into weight lifting while reading, the ebook is perfect because those little electrons weigh next to nothing. And it’s available now…sort of.
The Description and Some Reader Blurbs
Before I get to the details of where you can pre-order Domna, how you can get The Complete Series without having to wait, and how you can sample the first sixth of the book without paying a single cent, I suppose I should tell you a bit about Domna and what others think of it.
Destiny isn’t given by the gods, it’s made by defying them.
Sofia Domna has her future planned. She will follow in her father’s footsteps and lead the Temple of Apollo. She’ll marry her childhood love, Papinias. She’ll have respect, status, and power.
But when her father bitterly forces her betrothal to a stranger and orders her from the life she’s always known, Sofia is thrown into a new world where any wrong move could mean her demise.
Thrown into a world of full of political turmoil, violent ambition, and dangerous temptation, Sofia discovers her only chance of survival is to stay one step ahead of her enemies, but in Osteria new perils lurk around every corner and plots don’t always strike down their intended victims.
As Sofia’s life moves through the trials of a forced marriage, motherhood, and yearning temptation, she learns that destiny isn’t given; it’s made by cunning, endurance, and, at times, bloodshed.
With every option having dire consequences to those closest to her, when it comes down to the choice between love and power, which will win out?
If you like the political intrigue, adventure, and love triangles of historical fiction by Philippa Gregory and Bernard Cornwell, and the mythological world-building of fantasy fiction by Madeline Miller and Simon Scarrow, you’ll love Domna.

Domna, Part One: The Sun God’s Daughter introduces you to Sofia Domna, a determined young woman whose plans for her life get cruelly thrown off course when her father betroths her to a man she’s met only once…and let’s say in that first meeting the man didn’t endear himself to Sofia.
