Take a long look at that pretty, pretty cover. It belongs to KNIGHT'S CURSE, the brand new Urban Fantasy novel by my long-time friend and fellow Graphic/Web Designer, Karen Duvall. I interviewed her about KNIGHT'S CURSE in 2009. Now that it's out, I'm excited to get to introduce it to you!
Here's the blurb:
A skilled knife fighter since the age of nine, Chalice knows what it’s like to live life on the edge—precariously balanced between the dark and the light. But the time has come to choose. The evil sorcerer who kidnapped her over a decade ago requires her superhuman senses to steal a precious magical artifact…or she must suffer the consequences.
Desperate to break the curse that enslaves her, Chalice agrees. But it is only with the help of Aydin— her noble warrior-protector—that she will risk venturing beyond the veil to discover the origins of her power. Only for him will she dare to fully embrace her awesome talents. For a deadly duel is at hand, and Chalice alone will have to decide between freedom…and the love of her life.
KNIGHT'S CURSE is Karen's debut title with LUNA Books, and features a hauntingly mysterious heroine, an intriguing world filled with magic and danger, and a writing style sure to appeal to fans of J.R. Ward, C.E. Murphy, and Mercedes Lackey.
I was so excited to hear about KNIGHT'S CURSE, I made Karen agree to come on over and give a guest post about her publishing journey and the lessons she learned along the way--which are some awesome lessons, considering she's had more than one agent, and been published in small press as well as large.
Because Karen is awesome, she's offering one signed copy of KNIGHT'S CURSE here on Headdesk!
So check in next week for the guest post and an opportunity to enter. Until then, you can find more information about Karen and KNIGHT'S CURSE at these locations:
