Hunter’s Gambit reveal with Brandy Ackerley

Today I’m pleased to welcome Brandy Ackerley to the blog! I first met Brandy a few years ago at a writers conference in Calgary, Alberta and knew immediately she had good taste because she told me how much she’d enjoyed Kitsune-Tsuki. /wink/ We got to talking about everything from fox youkai to writing to art (she’s way better than I am), and now I’m pleased to host the reveal of her debut novel’s cover!

Hello and welcome! My name is Brandy Ackerley and I’m taking over this blog with some very important news! My first novel will be coming out a month from now on March 15th and I am super stoked about it. As a fan of Laura’s novels, I am honoured that she’s letting me reveal its cover on here!

Hunter’s Gambit is the story of Kuzunoha’s quest to find freedom from the future her family has decided for her. Unfortunately, she’s running out of options, especially after her elder half-sister, Himiko, takes her place as family matriarch. That changes when she saves the life of a stranger…

Isn’t it gorgeous! If you’re interested in reading the first chapter, I’ll be releasing it on my website on March 1st! I hope I’ll see you over there!

Kuzunoha is running out of options. In just a month she’ll be an adult but as the illegitimate younger daughter of a rich noble she can only see two possible futures. Both leave her a pawn in her elder sister’s game as family matriarch, a future as unacceptable to Kuzunoha as it is unavoidable.

That changes when Kuzunoha saves the life of a stranger. In return for her help, the stranger offers her a way to have a future that doesn’t tie her to her family. He’s heard of a forgotten treasure nearby and needs a guide to help him search for it. Her family and friends don’t trust this dangerous man’s offer, but Kuzunoha accepts, knowing that she can’t live the life her sister wants for her anymore.

Will she succeed in proving she can have a life outside of her sister’s shadow? Or will it all fall to pieces around her?

Hunter’s Gambit hits the market on March 15. You can follow Brandy on her blog or Facebook page for release details.
