|Texas Empire Flag|
I'm proud to announce that my debut novel, The Charge, will be released on 3/2/13 by Curiosity Quills Press! Selecting 3/2 was no accident, as it happens to be Texas Independence Day.
Of course in the alternate history world of The Charge, things are a little different. March 2 is "Texas Empire Pride Day." On March 2, 1836 the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed, which formally declared Texas's independence from Mexico and created the Republic of Texas. Then on March 6th, General Matthias Wilde led Texas to victory at the historic battle of the Alamo. The legend states that the General conjured a storm of blue lightning and killed hoards of Mexican soldiers using mysterious powers. They called him, "El Diablo Azul."
History quiz...can you tell when I deviated from the real timeline? :)
I'm very excited about the release and have lots of event and promotion ideas swimming around my brain. In the next few months, I'll be looking for early reviewers, blogs to host my cover reveal, and blog tour hosts. I'm happy to have gathered such a great network of friends in the writing community, I hardly know where to start! :) Talk about a champagne problem.
P.S. My cover is almost done! You'll get to see it soon.
