Ever been to a toga party? I went to a couple during my college years . . . fun events, even if a little bit crazy sometimes. None of those parties back then can hold a candle to the fun party I attended this week.
My good friend and writing partner, Lynne Gentry, launched her new book HEALER OF CARTHAGE. This is the story of a twenty-first century doctor who falls through a time portal and pops out in third century Rome on a slave block where she’s about to be sold to a unsavory man of ill intent.
If that’s not bad enough, while she works to maneuver out of that incident, Carthage is barreling toward a massive plague that will require Dr. Lisbeth Hastings to put everything on the line.
This story is not for the woman who prefers a gentle read in a quiet bubble bath. Nope . . . this one’s for the gal who longs for high adventure (and a tale kissed with a touch of hunky Roman romance!)
Anyway, back to the party. This one was crowded and filled with excitement. Readers had been patiently waiting for the big release date and when the day finally arrived, the lines wound through the store like a lion whip. After being greeted at the door by a Roman centurion, guests met Lynne and got their book signed, then tasted honey sesame cookies and mulled wine served by a beautiful young handmaiden.
While y’all missed the big launch party held here in Texas, don’t miss out on the adventure! Slip on over to your favorite bookstore or get online and order your copy today.
In the meantime, leave us a comment and tell us where you’d like to find yourself if you dropped through a time portal? What grand adventure would YOU like to take?
