The knights are dragging, Lords and Ladies, Knaves and Wenches. They need your cheers. If you missed the rules: the knights score points by you cheering for them. One point for using the knight’s name (ie, Stormy Knight) and one point for using the knight’s special Renaissance word. Each day you cheer, your names gets put into the drawing to win a free ebook of The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear. You may cheer for more than one knight, and you may cheer up to three times. The joust closes at midnight Pacific time (US).
I hate to see the party end. What fun it has been, and the knights have graced all of us with their impressive skills. There has been some talk on the Facebook of making this an annual event. Next year even grander and greater spread over many kingdoms (blogs) and turning this into a Renaissance Festival of parties, feats, and contests. Yes? I think so.

Did you hear Hetty Locklear was written for geek girls? Insecure? Weight and food issues? Hetty’s just like you.
A New Adult Urban Fantasy, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear is the first book in a new series. And it’s now out! My main character, Hetty, is a twenty-two-year-old stumbling about in an effort to become a full-fledged adult. She struggles with self-esteem, weight, relationships, and making the transition between college and the real world.
Graduation from community college isn’t the magic elixir Hetty Locklear counts on for becoming an adult. Her parents, who work the Renaissance fair circuit, insist she spend part of the summer with them. Hetty doubts pretending to live in the Middle Ages will help her find her way.
To make it worse, an entity haunts her at her dead-end job, warning her of a dangerous man she doesn’t know. The ghost leads her to a lover who has a lot of secrets. He pulls her farther into peril and into a strange, hidden world of genetic experimentation.
New Adult Urban Fantasy with a contemporary sci-fi twist. Mature content.
