news of my books

Last week I had a message from my publisher that The Making of a Mage, a Wolves of Vimar prequel, is now available as an audio book. This was a surprise as I didn’t know it was being done. Previously the narrators have contacted me to check on things I might want done in a particular way, and also pronunciations. This person didn’t.

Anyway it’s now out there, so if any of you would like to have a free copy, I have some promo codes. Email me (vivienne.sang@gmail.com) telling me if you are in the UK or the US as the codes are different.

Each code is only one use, so if you would like to gift someone else as well as yourself, you will need a separate code for each person.

After joining a street gang, Carthinal begins a life of crime. Soon after, he sees a performing magician, and decides he wants to learn the art of magic.

But can he break away from his past and find the path to his true destiny?

The next piece of news is that I received a draft cover for Book 2 of my historical series, A Family Through the Ages.

This is called Jealousy of a Viking. It follows a descendant of Adelbehrt from Vengeance of a Slave.

The copy they sent me was simply a rehash of the first cover. In fact, it was exactly the same, but in a different colour.

I said that this was not suitable as this story was not about fighting. I think the designer saw the title contained Viking and thought “Ah! They are a violent people.” so went with the same cover.

I pointed out that this book is about a young girl who has to fight her jealous feelings when her lover marries for political reasons, and that this cover would be entirely unsuitable for when we get to later times. Can you imagine something like that on a Regency book, or one about the Elizabethan or Victorian eras?

Anyway, we eventually got a cover that is not violent, but fits in with the Vengeance one.

At least it hasn’t got fighting men in the background!

What do you think?

I’ve no idea when it’s likely to be released, but I’ll keep you informed.

Meanwhile, here are some links to Vengeance of a Slave and a review I received. The links will take you to Amazon where you are.

BLURB

Forced to watch his father’s crucifixion and separated from his mother, orphaned six-year-old Adelbhert’s life forever changes when he is sold into slavery in Britannia.

Years of servitude fill his heart with malice and he resolves to escape, determined to rescue those he loves and deliver retribution to the Romans who wronged him.

But as new allies shed light on old perspectives, Adelbhert begins to question his path. Will he find true freedom, or allow his vengeance to consume him?

Review

R. J. Krzak, Award-Winning AuthorReview

5.0 out of 5 stars 

A Riveting Story Set in Roman Times

Reviewed in the United States on 30 December 2019

Verified Purchase

Vengeance of a Slave by V.M. Sang is a riveting story set during the period when Rome controlled Britannia. Follow the trials and tribulations of Adelbhert after he and his sister are taken by the Romans from their mother. They eventually end up as slaves in what is modern-day London. Adelbhert performs a nightly ritual to remind himself of the suffering he and his sister have endured, beginning with the crucifixion of their father. He vows to escape and punish those who have wronged him.

V.M. has created a moving story which will keep you turning the pages to find out how Adelbhert and his sister handle their new life. Experience their sorrow, anguish, and finally hope as they adapt to their changing situation. This is the first novel I’ve red of V.M.’s and it certainly won’t be the last! Well done and highly recommended!

Cover Reveal

I had a different post in mind for today, but then I got the cover from my publisher so thought I’d let you see it instead.

This is the second prequel to The Wolves of Vimar series and tells how Carthinal came to be a mage in spite of his tragic childhood.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s the cover.

I would be interested to hear what you think of it? Do you like it or not? The mage on the front has longish auburn hair, as has Carthinal. One person in the book tells him to get it cut, so of course he’s all the more determined not to do so!

I’ll let you know as soon as I know when it’s out, but at the moment it’s out of my hands.

I also got the information that the first prequel, Jovinda and Noli, is now available in bookstores. That’s great news.

This one tells about Carthinal’s parents. How they met and about their tragic love affair. Of course, Carthinal’s birth is part of it. The ISBNs are below.
