Cover Slut - Elizabeth Chadwick Upcoming Release


Elizabeth posted a draft of the cover of her upcoming book, The Summer Queen, on Facebook the other day, and today it's up on Amazon UK.  I love the vibrant colors!  Is it June yet??


UK release date June 20, 2013

Eleanor of Aquitaine's story deserves to be legendary. She is an icon who has fascinated readers for over 800 years. But the real Eleanor remains elusive - until now. Based on the most up-to-date research, award-winning novelist Elizabeth Chadwick brings Eleanor's magnificent story to life, as never before, unveiling the real Eleanor.


Young, golden-haired and blue-eyed Eleanor has everything to look forward to as the heiress to wealthy Aquitaine. But when her beloved father dies suddenly in the summer of 1137, her childhood is over. Forced to marry the young prince Louis of France, she barely adjusts before another death catapults them to being crowned King and Queen of France. Leaving everything behind, Eleanor must face the complex and vivacious French court. She is only 13.


Barely out of childhood, and forced to deal with great scandals, fraught relationships and forbidden love at every turn, Eleanor finally sees what her future could hold if she could just seize the moment.

Overflowing with scandal, politics, sex, triumphs and tragedies, The Summer Queen is the first novel in a stunning new trilogy.

I've read so much about her. What an interesting subject. Looking out for this one.

Trilogies seem to be the norm nowadays. I'm not fond of them. Would rather the entire story be told between a single cover...sometimes, there is too much 'filler' in spreading out a story between three volumes. I also find my interest in reading Parts Two and Three very sketchy, especially if Part One doesn't grab my attention, or the story-line is very predictable.

Thoughts?

I will try Elizabeth Chadwick's pages of Eleanor, however. That cover is beautiful!

Tracey - I think in many cases you're right. There are few people whose lives justify three books, but Eleanor might be one of them!

I want to read this! It will be a while before I can get a hold of it across the sea here though.
