Cover Reveal AND New Series Book Trailer Gods of Egypt

Things have been pretty busy lately, what with Warrior of the Nile coming out from Carina Press on the 16th (next week - EEP!) and I just revealed the cover for the next book in this connected series, Dancer of the Nile. I think the heroine, Nima, looks so strong and determined! Starting with Dancer of the Nile, I'm self publishing the series. I've been a "hybrid author" for awhile, self publishing my best selling science fiction romances, so in for a penny, in for a pound, as they say!

I also commissioned a series trailer from the wonderful Theresa McClinton, of Making It Reel, for the Egyptian series. Collaborating with her was so much fun and our goal was to create a video that would invite the viewer into the faraway, ancient land along the Nile. Let me know what you think, please!

But before we get to the video, let me give you the story blurb for Warrior of the Nile, since he'll be arriving in just three days!
Egypt, 1500 BCE
Lady Tiya is bound to the service of the goddess Nephthys, who plans to sacrifice Tiya’s body to protect Egypt from an ancient terror. She embarks to meet her grim fate alone but for the hardened warrior Khenet, who is fated to die at her side. Tiya’s dreams of love and family now seem impossible, and Khenet, who is the last of his line, knows his culture will die with him. Struggling with the high cost of Nephthys’s demands, both resolve to remain loyal.
Neither expects the passion that flowers when Tiya’s quiet courage and ethereal beauty meet Khenet’s firm strength and resolve. On a boat down the Nile, their two lonely souls find in each other a reason to live. But time is short and trust elusive.
Without the willing sacrifice of Tiya and Khenet, a great evil will return to Egypt. How could the gods demand their deaths when they’ve only just begun to live?
Here's the brand new trailer:
