My friend Angela Campell is making a new cover for my novella, Nightgazer, that was originally part of our Here Be Magic boxed set. I’d like to write more in this world (especially now that I’m self-publishing for the foreseeable future) but I don’t have a series name.
I’ll paste the blurb below. If you have a series title idea, please leave it in comments. If I use your title, I’ll give you a $25 gift certificate to any online book retailer of your choice!
A princess on the run with a secret gift. A grumpy wizard stripped of his power. Can she heal him in time to save her throne?
Matilda, the Twenty Third Princess and youngest daughter of the Tyrant, flees the castle in the dead of the night after the Tyrant’s death. Hoping to survive her murderous half-siblings’ fight for the throne, she hides in the furthest corner of the realm she can find. Unfortunately, the infamous wizard once chained as the queen’s pleasure slave had the exact same plan.
Tormented by guilt for his part in his mentor’s death and stripped of his power by the queen, Oyrin Nightgazer plots revenge and hopes to restore the Wellspring–the source of all wizards’ power–that was tainted by his betrayal. The princess bears a massive bulls-eye on her back, but with his help, she might be able to stand against the evil queen and her daughter. Assuming he remains sane long enough, and Matilda doesn’t try to enslave him again.
Because with a wizard at her feet… She would be the mightiest queen the realm has ever seen.
Elements: BDSM, wizard, cat shapeshifter, princess, magic
