If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you know I’ve mentioned several times that in addition to working on the sequel to “The Raven,” I’ve been working on a second writing project.
The nature of that writing project has been a secret until now …
I’m pleased to announce that I’m writing a prequel novella to “The Raven” that will be entitled “The Prince.” “The Prince” will be released by Intermix in January 2015 as an ebook.
Here’s the description:
The unveiling of a set of priceless illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy at the Uffizi Gallery exposes the unsuspecting Professor Gabriel Emerson and his beloved wife, Julianne, to a mysterious and dangerous enemy.
Unbeknownst to the Professor, the illustrations he secretly acquired years ago were stolen a century earlier from the ruler of Florence’s underworld. Now one of the most dangerous beings in Italy is determined to reclaim his prized artwork and exact revenge on the Emersons, but not before he uncovers something disturbing about Julianne …
Set in the city of Florence, “The Prince” is a prequel novella to “The Raven,” which is the first book in the new Florentine Series Trilogy by Sylvain Reynard.
“The Prince” can be read as a standalone but readers of The Gabriel Series may be curious about the connection between The Professor’s world and the dark, secret underworld of “The Prince.”
I view “The Prince” as a bridge between The Gabriel Series and “The Raven.” It’s a chance to see Gabriel and Julianne and also meet new characters from The Florentine Series.
Here’s a short teaser:
“Let the Emersons view themselves as modern incarnations of Dante and Beatrice. It mattered not. Mercy was not a part of the Prince’s nature …”
“The Raven” is already available for preorder from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, KOBO, and The Book Depository. “The Prince” will be available for preorder soon.
Thank you for your continued support.
All the best,
