200 years ago today Napoleon set out to Paris on a journey north that was to end in the fields just south of Waterloo.
I've been following the countdown to Waterloo on sites like the excellent 'The Last Stand' from the University of Warwick and giving my own take on some of the key events here, but my site statistics suggest that most of my readers aren't that interested. So, instead of going on about Napoleon, here's a plug for a book by Fia Essen.
Fia generously offers writers 100 words on her blog to pitch their books. So here's 100 words on mine, where she pitches Ariel.
Ariel Morton’s life was perfect … until it wasn’t. Now she’s stuck in a rut. At the age of thirty-four, she has a dead-end job, a rented hovel of a home, and a rising stack of unpaid bills to keep her company. Just when Ariel is starting to fear she will never get her life back on track, she’s contacted by the mysterious Muse Agency. Suddenly, she is forced to question everything she thought she knew about herself and those around her. Who is Ariel? And what does she want? The truth is she can’t answer those questions. And finding the answers is the only way out of her rut.
Ariel is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ariel-Fia-Essen/dp/1625262051
