The Crown of Anavrea Release Celebration

The Crown of Anavrea
Book One of the Theodoric Saga

In a time when castles were the strongest…in a place where combat was face to face…Labren was on the run. He hid his true name and he admitted it freely.

In a time when slavery was legal…in a place where kings were all-powerful…Eve, a slave, appeared in the right place at the right time.

Eve saved his life. In return, he offered her the opportunity of freedom. She did not know what would happen to her if she chose to accept his proposal, but she did know the consequences of rejecting it.

The Crown of Anavrea--the first Rachel Rossano book to be bound on printed page--is making a second debut. Longer, fuller, and with a brand new cover, it bursts forth as the first of a four part series, The Theodoric Saga.

In honor of the occasion, I am hosting a giveaway.

I came over here from Sat Sample and the cover of the Crown of Anavrea is a terrific design. Beautiful!

Thank you Anonymous.

Also, thank you, Patricia. My friend Jaimey Grant, a great writer designed it for me. Her website has some gorgeous pre-made covers in the gallery that make me want to write the story behind them. :)

Congratulations on your new release. They all sound wonderful, but the print version on "The Crown of Anavrea" REALLY got my attention.

The cover is beautiful and the blurb is an attention grabber.

May the Lord continue to bless the works of your hands.

Rachel Rossano said...

Thank you so much, Laurean. I especially appreciate your well wishes. :)

Well written sample! I had forgotten about "hand-to-hand" combat.

Rachel Rossano said...

Thank you, Sandra. :)

Hi Rachel,
Congratulations on your re-release.
This sounds like an intriguing way to escape to another place and time.

A fun celebration, Rachel! I'm excited you're coming out with print copies. I own a Kindle but we haven't bonded very well. I still prefer the feel of a "real book" in my hands. LOL! I tried to take your Fun Questionaire, but I couldn't get the link to come up. Oh well. I hope I have enough entires to at least have a chance at a prize. :-)
