Medieval Romance Fiction Giveaway!

NOTE: I had to re-send this post because Blogger wasn't cooperating with me and many of my readers didn't receive this as a separate email. I don't want anyone to miss Debbie Lynne's book drawing! So we'll run the second post on Friday. 

Again: Read today's post and then come back for Part Two where Debbie Lynne will offer a free book to one commenter! She'll also give us a little education on fourteenth century clothing, woo hoo! (I adore historical costume, don't you?)

Looking for a good spring or summer read? Debbie Lynne Costello's debut novel, Sword of Forgiveness is still selling like mad on Amazon and already has 47 customer reviews. When you consider that most readers never leave reviews, that is a lot for a new book.

Take a look at what they're saying and pick up a copy for a fun read yourself.

I'm always happy to see any historical fiction that I can say with confidence is clean and edifying (unlike most secular historical fiction).

Here's a description of the book:

Sword of Forgiveness  (Winds of Change) (Volume 1) 

by Debbie Lynne Costello

     After the death of her cruel father, Brithwin is determined never again to live under the harsh rule of any man. Independent and resourceful, she longs to be left alone to manage her father’s estate. But she soon discovers a woman has few choices when the king decrees she is to marry Royce, the Lord of Rosencraig. As if the unwelcome marriage isn’t enough, her new husband accuses her of murdering his family, and she is faced with a challenge of either proving her innocence or facing possible execution.
     Royce of Hawkwood returns home after setting down a rebellion to find his family brutally murdered. When all fingers point to his betrothed and attempts are made on his life, Royce must wade through murky waters to uncover the truth. Yet Brithwin’s wise and kind nature begin to break down the walls of his heart, and he soon finds himself in a race to discover who is behind the evil plot before Brithwin is the next victim.

 And now, a little about Debbie Lynne: (In my words, not hers!)

I have nothing but respect for Debbie Lynne. Why? Because she put her family before writing, raising three sons and a daughter before settling down in front of a laptop to give vent to the stories that were dancing through her brain since an early age. Her creativity also finds outlets at the sewing machine, easel, and many other venues. If there is one word that could describe Debbie Lynne, it is this: INDUSTRIOUS. Others come to mind, however: GIFTED, CREATIVE, SERVANT, among them. 

Nowadays, Debbie Lynne lives with her husband in South Carolina, where they enjoy camping, riding their Arabian and Tennessee Walking horses, and spending time with family and friends. Debbie Lynne is the Children's Director at church, and raises Shetland Sheepdogs year round. I've been trying to dovetail one of our family vacations with her and her family, but so far we haven't managed it. She's always got projects to finish, church responsibilities to fill, or people to look after. Now she'll tell me she has a sequel to write! (But I can't complain. Her readers will be grateful.)

Remember to come back tomorrow for PART TWO of this post, where Debbie Lynne will award one commenter with a free copy of her book (ebook copy). 

What about you? Are you happy for a new author of  historical romance? Let Debbie Lynne know how glad you are! All comments today will be included in the next drawing. (If you comment both days, you'll have two entries.)
