July News from Mary Anne Yarde #amwriting #HistoricalFiction

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well!

There have been some exciting things afoot this month for me. I have almost finished with the rewrites for The Du Lac Princess (Book 3 of The Du Lac Chronicles). I am hoping to send it off to my editor at the end of the week. The Du Lac Princess has taken me on quite a journey and writing it has certainly been a very emotional experience. I can’t wait to share it with you.

I have also been busy working with my book designer for the cover of Book 3, and I think it might be my favourite cover so far. I will be revealing the cover very soon.

In other news…

I was thrilled to receive a Discovered Diamond Review for The Du Lac Chronicles.

You can read the full review here…

I also found out that The Du Lac Devil is a finalist in the Golden Quill Award. Yay!!

The Contest Judges were asked to rate the books 0-10 based on the questions below: 

Is the story line engaging and interesting enough to make you turn the pages?
Is the protagonist's character well developed? (You can relate to it)
Is the antagonist character well developed? (You love to hate it)
Is the authors' writing style engaging and makes the story flow well?
Is the formatting and or illustrations aesthetically pleasing?
Did you find the story idea original?
Is the plot well thought out and well developed? (no inconsistencies and flows well)
Satisfying ending (happy ending or not, did it leave you satisfied with the conclusion of the story?)

The FINALIST books received 8-10 points out of 10:

You can find all the finalists, including myself, here...

Blog News.

Remember to keep an eye on the blog in the coming months as I have some fabulous guest authors coming on to talk about the inspirations behind their books. I don't know about you, but I love Author's Inspiration, I am always fascinated about what inspires authors’ to write their books.

Anyway, I need to go and procrastinate on Twitter and Facebook for a while.
I'll catch up with you all soon.
