Announcement from Linda T. Smith a.k.a. Fingersmith
It has been ten years since I first sent Hearts and Flowers to the Academy, so I thought I would do a little 'free for the chosen few' (instead of a free for all - grin). One signed copy of Beginnings is up for grabs, and two ebooks. I will also be giving away two ebook editions of Hearts, too.
Entering the draw is simple. Either email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ), pm on my facebook, or put your choice on my facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/LT-Smith/535475523205666 . Closing date is next Sunday 15 March - and because it is Mother's day in England, I will also be giving away two ebook copies of Forget Me Not. All you have to do is let me know which one you would like - and even a second choice too. Good luck.

Looking forward to settling down with Xena, Gabrielle's happiness is shelved when an old friend from the Warrior Princess past insist on their help to stop an evil daemon. Torn doing right by her soul mate, or sacrificing everything for the Greater Good, Xena is faced with tremendous obstacles. Not only has a wedge formed between her and Gabrielle, but unseen occurrences portend to tear the lovers asunder, as an even powerful enemy patiently awaits to play their hand. Not just threatening Xena's and Gabrielle's world, but another world that's equally important. The Realm of the Conqueror.

Almost getting the opportunity, she is at a pause, due to the fact that she feels she will be leaving something behind at the Corinthian castle. However, with a possible skirmish occuring, the Conqueror gives a farewell gift to Ri, whom she secretly loves, causing events to transpire, and forcing the Conqueror to come unknowingly in contact with a being from another world, who resembles her hand-maiden, Ri.
