ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

Some of you are aware that one of my novels, Unspoken, was contracted to a tiny, up and coming publishing house. After some time of not hearing from them, I pushed and was finally told that they were dissolving. During this time I wrote three more novels, one of which was the sequel to Unspoken. But that didn’t help the sense of loss.

Realizing that everything happens for a reason (my motto), I took a second and third look at my query and sent it off to a few agents and publishing houses. I happened upon Parliament House and sent my query and first three chapters and much to my surprise, they asked for the full manuscript! Now, I hadn’t opened up the document in two years mind you so who knows what had been overlooked.  Nails bitten and house neglected, I swept through it one last time and sent it away.

I waited a few weeks. I wasn’t genuinely hopeful because of my failures in the past, but I tried to keep positive. Lots of writers go through dozens and even hundreds of rejections before they find the right home for their work. I know what I love, and that is writing. So I couldn’t be sad. I couldn’t be down on myself and stop writing. I could not give up.

And then my Gmail app chimed, and there was an email from Parliament House, and THEY WANTED MY NOVEL!

The Camelot Betrayal: Review

Thank you, NetGalley for the e-arc.

In this sequel, we find Guinevere still unsure of herself, her relationship with Arthur, and her attraction to Mordred. After the events of the first book, I was so excited to see some character development and some serious antagonists. Alas, I was underwhelmed.

The pacing, for one, was way off. So much in fact that I felt jarred at the way this book was all over the place. I had no idea was the main plotline was; if there was one, it got lost in all the random. There was no steady flow of storyline. the chapters felt like a sitcom where each episode has nothing to do with the one before it.

The characters fell flat. Each sounded exactly the same with next to no uniqueness. I couldn’t latch on to anyone besides Mordred, who takes a backseat this time around. Funny enough that the boy in black gave the story the most color. I think I expected a bit more romance? Seeing as things sort of ramped up and with how Guinevere Deception ended and with her choices and all, I expected something more than a vanilla romance where the man can’t even be bothered to…feel much of anything. At least Guin was trying. I felt for her.

All in all, this was a weak installement to the series. There seems to be a build up to something, but I don’t see it. At all. There was a hint of an antagonist the the first book, but this one had next to nothing save for one little spoiler at the very end. You can’t have readers slog through 400 pages of a sequel and give them absolutely nothing in return. Guin should have had some character arc at some point. We should have had some romance. We should have seen some huge reveal that knocks our socks off.

I’ll hold out hope for the last book, but at this point, It’s not looking good.
