God Save the King Acquires a Publisher as Queen of Bedlam!

You may remember me sharing in 2012 about working with Laura Purcell on her debut self-published historical fiction novel, God Save the King, and then sharing when the book was picked up for representation. Now I am beyond thrilled to share that Laura and the book have a new home at Myrmidon!!! The book has been re-titled Queen of Bedlam and will be published in June 2014 as the first in a series about England's royal Hanoverian women!

Publisher Ed Handyside described the novel as “a heartbreaking story of lost love and a life dominated by duty.” He added: “Laura Purcell vividly brings to life the contrast of a private and loving marriage to the royal court acting like a prison to a woman terrified of her husband and his episodes of madness.”

Read the full story on The Bookseller.

Congratulations, Laura! And for all of you hardworking indie authors out there, keep on working toward your dreams! They do come true!
