Bursting at the seams with news!
My goodness I hardly know where to get started this month! New website, new rave reviews, news for The Absinthe Earl insiders (that's you!), a giveaway, and a three-pack of summer reading recs!
I think we have to start with the fabulous publishing industry reviews The Absinthe Earl continues to receive! I have been positively glowing over the latest. Here are excerpts from the three we've received just since the last newsletter...
“Anyone who loves a good supernatural story, along with a hefty dose of Irish legend and romance, will adore this new series.”
“The environment is lush and imaginative, with everyone appearing to hide their own seductive, dark secrets. It’s a world that comes alive with mysterious, foggy moors, dangerous peat bogs, and gorgeous green hills. Ada is an admirably independent heroine, taking her research quite seriously despite the handsome distraction of Edward.”
“I suggest reading this captivating novel in a verdant woodland, sitting in the shade against a stout tree trunk and perhaps sipping a bit of absinthe.”

I know, right? I honestly couldn't be more pleased with these.
The other exciting bit of news I have just for The Cozy Read subscribers: the publisher has booked the voice talent for the audio version of the novel! You can listen to samples on Audible: Alison McKenna and Alan Smyth. Even their names sound evocative and lovely, don't they?
