Cover Reveal for Acre’s Orphans- Out January 21

Okay, here it is. This is the cover for my newest novel, Acre’s Orphans. It’s a sequel to 2017’s Acre’s Bastard. (Which, FWIW is on sale on Kindle for 99 cents November 23-30.)

First, the cover.

Now, here’s the back cover blurb:

“Ten-Year-old Lucca the Louse narrowly escaped the worst
disaster to befall the Kingdom of Jerusalem, but he’s not safe
yet. His beloved but doomed city of Acre is about to fall into
Saracen hands, and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it.
Days after his return, he uncovers a plot to rip apart what
remains of the Crusader Kingdom. Acre’s only chance lies in
the last Crusader stronghold; the port of Tyre. Carrying an
important secret, Lucca—accompanied by a young Lebanese
girl, a leprous nun, and a Hospitaler with a dark secret—must
make his way through bandit-infested wilderness to seek
help. Will he find assistance for those left behind, or will it be
too little, too late?
This exciting sequel to “Acre’s Bastard” is a rollicking,
humorous, and thrilling adventure story that stands alone, but
adds to the growing legend of Lucca le Pou.”
I’m thinking a January 21 launch, unless someone can think of something better. I will also set up a way to get advance copies for reviews. If you’re interested (please, Lord, if you’ve ever loved a brother) drop me a line.
