Thank you for coming along to the launch at Smith Flat House in Placerville, CA, on the 14 of January, 2015!
A Long Trail Rolling is finally rolling!
For those of you who have asked, here are the best buy links!
Ebooks and paper: Amazon
We are planning a book signing tour around New Zealand right now! Please let me know if you have a great venue and a crowd to go with it!
I’ll post the video from the launch party as soon as it’s available!
We gave away a few paper copies of A Long Trail Rolling and Cover Posters on the night, and we nearly sold out of a whole box of books!
I spoke about what history means to me, historicals, my thoughts on the process of my writing, and read two excerpts.
Prize draws of paper copies of A Long Trail Rolling and posters of the cover were enthusiastically welcomed!
People especially liked hearing about how I wrote the story, and why, which was a bit surprising to me! They were also interested to hear about the current opportunities in self publishing. I think a few people might just progress the writing they started in the past… and were afraid to pursue!
Thanks to everybody, once again, for coming along! Can’t wait to catch up with the rest of you!
Just as an aside…The book launch ‘happened’ at the end of a tour of southern England… and the Isle of Wight… where I found the inspiration for the next series!
Here’s my new author pic, taken by Matt at the B & B where we stayed in Goring-by-Sea, a neighbourhood of the Borough of Worthing in West Sussex, England. I’ll talk about it another time!
Back to work! Bye!
A Long Trail Rolling
by Lizzi Tremayne
The Long Trail Book One
Escaping her father’s killer, Aleksandra rode the Pony Express—full speed into the middle of the Indian Paiute Wars.
She didn’t expect to become a target, but she is one now!
Seventeen year old Aleksandra, trained in the Cossack arts from infancy by her father, finds herself alone and running to prevent her Pa’s killer from obtaining a secret coveted by the Russian Czar, one which could alter the forces of power in Europe. Disguised as a Pony Express rider in 1860’s Utah Territory, she finds herself in even deeper trouble. Her Californio boss Xavier has a strength to match her own, but can they overcome their differences before the ever-increasing odds overtake them?
With this debut Western Historical Adventure, Lizzi Tremayne won the 2014 RWNZ Pacific Hearts Award and was a finalist in the 2013 Great Beginnings A saga of the Old West with a multicultural cast of those who make up America, it would interest readers who enjoy Westerns, horses, American Indians, immigrants, and the Pony Express. It has a capable heroine, strong historical detail, period veterinary treatment and frontier-pushing characters. It compares to the work of Phillipa Gregory, Diana Gabaldon and Jean Auel, with a little Laura Ingalls Wilder thrown in.
This novel is the first in The Long Trail quadrilogy of historical adventure sagas following her characters from the wilderness of 1860 Utah to Colonial New Zealand.
