Thanks to those who voted for their favourite cover. I have now officially approved the cover with the Aztec calendar stone. Although it wasn’t my choice, my blog readers and Facebook contributors voted roughly 70/30 in favour. I trust my audience.
I have also had to submit the Amazon blurb which I was shocked to discover had to be kept to 100 words or less! How cruel is that? To have to distill years of hard graft to just 100 words. How to do it justice? Anyway, here’s what I submitted…
Drought has taken a terrible toll on the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, but worse is still to come. It is the final days of the sacred calendar and the New Fire must be lit, to appease the gods and keep an apocalypse at bay.
Meanwhile, war and dark politics are at work, and the high priest hatches a devious plot to undermine Tlacaelel, the ruler’s brother, and break the stranglehold of the burgeoning secular state.
One young warrior is caught up in the high priest’s conspiracy and has to stay alive long enough to rescue a friend and unmask the traitor.
Availability on Amazon can only be a week or two away!
