Today, I’m ecstatic to help a friend out with the cover reveal for TRAITOR KNIGHT, by Keith Willis, coming soon from Champagne books! I was lucky enough to hear the first chapters at a reading earlier this year, and I was hooked from the first page. I can’t wait until I can read the rest:
Morgan McRobbie will do anything to protect the kingdom of Kilbourne.
Even betray it.
When Morgan rescues a damsel-in-distress from an errant dragon, he expects she’ll swoon, murmuring “My hero!” Instead, Marissa has only loathing for the man everyone believes will betray Kilbourne. That’s fine with Morgan. A woman in his life would just complicate things.
A high-level informer threatens the kingdom’s security, and Morgan is out to stop him. Posing as a turncoat himself, he walks a fine line between honor and betrayal. A single misstep could result in disaster, and his mission is fraught with distractions: the pesky dragon, a pair of conniving courtiers, a surfeit of spies, and the disillusioned damsel who’s certain Morgan can’t be trusted.
If Morgan’s going to save the kingdom, win the girl, and manage to stay alive, he’ll need to step up his game. Because the traitor is lurking in the shadows, and his scheme calls not just for the betrayal of Kilbourne, but also the destruction of Morgan McRobbie.
TRAITOR KNIGHT is a rollicking fantasy combining swashbuckling adventure, intrigue, a large dollop of romance, and a dash of wit. TRAITOR KNIGHT will be published by Champagne Book Group, with an anticipated release date of September 8, 2015. While not yet available for pre-order, readers can sign up to be notified when the book will be available here.
There’s a giveaway. I’ll be raffling off a digital copy of TRAITOR KNIGHT via Rafflecopter. Here’s the link (also available on the Writing@Knight home page):
About the author: Keith W. Willis graduated (a long time ago) from Berry College with a BA in English Literature and a desire to tell stories. He lives with his amazingly patient, loving, and supportive wife Patty in the upper Hudson Valley region of New York. Keith believes that those rumbling noises long attributed to Henry Hudson’s crew bowling are in actuality dragons grumbling. When Keith isn’t writing down fantastical tales from the land of Kilbourne, he manages a group of database content editors for a global information technology firm. TRAITOR KNIGHT is his first published novel.
