Hello~Thank you for staying with me! This is my first newsflash of 2020, so Happy New Year! My newsletters just might be as rare as in 2019, but I’ll be around, so feel free to contact me. By the way, I’m choosing now to put this through because Amazon has a Countdown Deal going on the e-book Fortune’s Child. It’s also on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited. The e-book will be back on B&N, KOBO, Apple, Smashwords, etc in February. Both hard and soft covers are available for ordering from most places. Remember, your reviews are invaluable! Thank you!
KIRKUS REVIEWS has been very kind to Theodora!
“A historical novel set in sixth-century Constantinople charts the extraordinary ascent of a woman from poverty to royal power. In this ambitious novel, the author vividly brings to life the cinematic story of Theodora’s life, chronicling her rise, more halting than meteoric, to spectacular power. Martin’s command of the historical period—not just the chief political events, but also the nuances of its cultural mores—is masterful. Furthermore, he conjoins that scholarly rigor with novelistic excitement—the entire tale is intelligently conveyed with great emotional poignancy. [This is] a meticulously researched historical account presented in the form of a thrilling political drama.”
