|The paperback edition will be published on September 27th 2012|
Roll up, roll up! The paperback edition of my Tudor novel The Queen's Secret goes on sale in the UK this coming Thursday - yes, the same day as a certain JK Rowling's new book - so I thought it might be nice to have a few giveaways this week. I'm going to start with a giveaway of the paperback of The Queen's Secret, but I do have some other books to give away later.
So if you'd like to win a signed copy of The Queen's Secret in paperback, just leave a comment below. Three copies of TQS will be up for grabs over the next few weeks, but I'll just start with one copy for this week. It's open to anywhere in the world, not just the UK, and my trusty husband will randomly select a winner for the free paperback on Friday 28th September.
Please remember to check back though if you don't leave a blog or Twitter name where I can contact you - in case you've won and I don't know where to send the book.
Desire and power collide in the court of Elizabeth I
Pomp, fanfare and a wealth of lavish festivities await Elizabeth I at Kenilworth Castle. Organised by the Earl of Leicester, he knows this celebration is his last chance to persuade the Queen to marry him. But, a fickle man, he is unable to resist the seductive wiles of Lettice Knollys. Enraged by the couple's growing intimacy, Elizabeth employs a young black singer and court entertainer to keep a watch on them. Brought up by a spy, Lucy's observational skills are sharper than anyone at the castle realises, and she soon uncovers far more than she bargained for: Someone at Kenilworth is plotting to kill the queen.
Can the knowledge Lucy is gaining prevent the death of the monarch? Or has it put Lucy in mortal danger instead?
