Apollo’s Raven Newly Released

Apollo’s Raven New Release and Kirkus Review

I am excited to announce that Book 1: Apollo’s Raven was released on April 10 and a review  by Kirkus Reviews was recently published.

“A complex and promising start to a new fantasy series.” — Kirkus Reviews

As a debut author, I’d love to hear your feedback on Apollo’s Raven and encourage you to write your honest review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and/or Goodreads. This is one of the best ways to give your opinion about a book and at the same time give authors your feedback. It also serves as an important guide that readers can use to select their next book.

More information on giveaways and special deals on Apollo’s Raven in May are forthcoming on my author website http://linneatanner.com/.

Bublish Platform

Another platform that I have begun to use is Bublish which provides a dashboard for authors to create and publicize their books. What is most powerful about this platform is that authors can create what is called a “bubble” where they can publicly provide their insight on excerpts from their books. The following link is an example of a bubble that provides my insight on Chapter 1 of Apollo’s Raven bit.ly/2nVPL36 . In the future, I’ll create other bubbles that provide background as to why I wrote a scene in a certain way. The good news is the site is open to readers as well as authors.

Another powerful tool from Bublish is that authors can draft their next book directly into their system. The author can create a bubble that publicly displays an excerpt from a draft  to get comments from other authors and readers. The final plus is the final manuscript can be converted to epub to create an e-book, or downloaded in word or PDF format. The manuscript of Book 2: Empire’s Anvil has been transferred to this site, and I will be seeking comments on certain scenes in the future.

About Apollo’s Raven Series

The Apollo’s Raven series weaves historical fiction into an epic Celtic tale of love, magic, adventure, intrigue and betrayal. The series follows two star-crossed lovers in the backdrop of Ancient Rome and Britannia spanning from 24 AD through 40 AD. The Apollo’s Raven epic series is inspired by the legacy of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, but with a Celtic twist. The heroine is based on historical accounts and mythology of Celtic warrior queens. Her Roman lover is the great-grandson of Mark Antony. The vastly different cultures of the empire-building Romans and the mystical Celts in Britannia set the backdrop to the series.

Important Update on Blog and New Website

It had been my intention to integrate this blog into my new author website at http://linneatanner.com. However, the integration posed unexpected challenges, as several of the links to images were disconnected. Due to the issues, I’ve decided to maintain Apollo’s Raven as a separate blog and will work over the next few months to fix the links to the missing images.

I cherish the friendship and interactions that I’ve had with subscribers to Apollo’s Raven. For those who are not subscribers to my new website, click on the link below and fill out the form to subscribe. You will receive free the first three chapters of Book 1 of the Apollo’s Raven series.
