Good morning everyone,
Just thought I would drop in and do some self promotion. My apologies if this is the wrong area in which to do so.
My new novel from Whiskeycreek Press is out now. It is titled Savage Utopia and is set in the 1830's.
BLURB: On board the convict ship taking them to the penal colony of Australia, Maryanne Watson and Jake Smith meet and fall in love, but Jake hides a terrible secret that will take him to the gallows if it ever comes out.
On arrival in Sydney the lovers are separated. Maryanne is sent to work for the lecherous Captain Fitzhugh. After he attacks her she flees into the wilderness and eventually meets up with Jake who has escaped from a chain gang.
They set up home in a hidden valley and Maryanne falls pregnant. Will jake come out of hiding to protect his fledgling family?
And how can love triumph over such crushing odds?
Hope you enjoyed the blurb.
