It’s taken a while from the moment the original idea popped in my mind to the day the final finished form of the novel was ready. It had to be written down, re written, edited, re-edited and then edited once more by a professional editor. This sentence makes it sound that everything happened very fast, but it did take some doing. It was all worth it, as I think it turned the book into the best it could be. I think the revamp of the website (still a work in progress) is also an improvement, and I’m very excited about the map of this world, and the sketches of the leading characters, Regina Fitzwaters and Maximillian Jaeger.
The book is a fast paced, swashbuckling fantasy adventure set in a world similar to Napoleonic/Regency era Europe. Captain Regina Fitzwaters, a mercenary in the Merchant Blades and former cavalry captain is offered an opportunity to have her gambling debts forgiven by the bosses of Border Town. All she needs to do is bring back a box they purchased from the Alchemist in the city of Pella. The catch? She has to pair up with Kapitan Maximillian Jaeger, a former enemy, who fought on the opposite side of the war.
Throw in snow threatening to block the only pass, highwaymen, a persistent pack of wolves on their tails, the niece and nephew of the Duke in the opulent court of Pella taking a particular interest in Regina and Jaeger. What could possibly go wrong?
Need something to help you unwind for Christmas? Someone to keep you company on the long journey to and from home? A great gift for someone who likes a good book? The Alchemist’s Box is here for you.
If you enjoy The Alchemist’s Box, as I hope you do, “Lose a Princess, Lose Your Head”, the Merchant Blades second adventure will be out very soon.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Love and Festive Kisses to everyone,
