It’s A Love Thing–officially released!

2 Jun

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of the summer anthology It’s A Love Thing, a compilation of 8 YA stories published by Prose By Design. Among them my historical YA short story called I Was Here–Before You Came.


Legend has it … centuries after Spartacus another hero is born—Ilias, the bastard son of King Decebalus. Thirsty for revenge and eager to unshackle the Roman oppression, Ilias’ obsession to fulfill his oath has no bounds, even if that means kidnapping Nerva, the beloved daughter of Emperor Traianus. What he doesn’t know is his own heart threatens to betray his conscience. What will prevail: his mind or his heart?

Writing Ilias’ story taught me a few things: I am the only one limiting myself. I can reach places I dream of and make them mine. I can write anything I set my mind to. I can.

Although the story goes back over 2000 years, the birth of the Romanian nation is a timeless tale, needed be told and celebrated for generations to come.  I added a new hero to my long list of favorite characters–Ilias, the bastard son of King Decebalus. He is the last Dacian King before the Roman conquest. Ilias is only 22 years old and yet he’s brave, fearless and destined to make history.

It was really fun and easy to work with him, in fact it took me only ten days to get his story jotted down.

And because it’s such a happy day I’m giving away one e-copy of the story and once e-copy of the whole anthology.

All you have to do to win is leave a comment here on this post answering the question:

Who’s son is Ilias?

 A week from now, on 06/09 I’ll count all comments and use to pick the winners. Don’t forget to leave your email address. Good luck everyone!

      Thanks, Aline. You’re funny. As obvious as it is, people have a tendency to look too hard and not seeing it.
      Good luck!
