Udea, Capital of Nocturna

I just wanted to give a description of the capital city where my main character Valon spends most of his time in my debut YA fantasy romance novel NOCTURNA, which is named after the country the city Udea is located in and hidden within modern-day Turkey.


Udea

City of Udea

After the death of King Gideon in 127 (CE), the boy king Alexei moved the capital from Ruzea to Udea, which was on a popular trade route for merchants even before contact with humans was revoked. Towering stone walls encircle the city made of clay bricks, polished stone, and timber.

NOCTURNA Sneak Peak: Chapter One

Nocturna

 

Author’s Note: I asked on Instagram and Twitter if I should post this first chapter as a preview for my book NOCTURNA that will be available for preorder on Amazon.com September 1 (to be released December 1). Hope you enjoy it!

Chapter One

Terror spiked in my veins as arms wrapped around me, caging me, stopping me from escaping. A large cloth-covered hand clamped over my mouth, muffling my screams. Then I was dragged backward into the shadows of an alley. The man who held me shifted his grip. His narrowed eyes flamed amber, and a wicked grin twisted about his lips.

Quick Update

IMG_4217
So I sort of just realized that Amazon only allows an author to put their book up for preorder for 3 months, so I’m pushing the date to begin preordering back to September 1 instead of August 1 so it could still be released December 1. (Gotta have those holiday gifts, right? 😉) Sorry for the error! Again, the day to begin preordering is now September 1!
I would also like to add that soon I will be making an Instagram to put my book quotes and potential giveaways on soon, probably a few weeks before the preordering begins. Name of the account to follow TBD, though, so keep an eye out for that news either here or on my Twitter (@aelliott1321, for recent followers).

Hey Again!

Wow, it feels like it’s been a really long time in all honesty. I’m so excited though! My book NOCTURNA is (probably, most likely, based on my current timeline) going to be released for preorder in both eBook and Paperback format on Amazon.com!

If you don’t happen to remember or if you’re a new, curious visitor to the site, NOCTURNA is about Valon Wess, a kidnapped human who tries to flee the monster world, Nocturna, and his blossoming love for the Dragon King Alexei. (A longer summary plus a book trailer can be found here.)

Nocturna
Here’s the official cover again, since I’m so happy with it. Feel free to leave any comments below and remember to subscribe to my newsletter for news on any giveaways or freebies in the future.

Monthly Newsletters

Alright, so I’ve decided to do a new thing to promote my books:

Each month, I will begin sending out monthly newsletters which give hints about future works of mine, additional information never revealed before in the novels already finished or published, access to helpful writing tools and inspiration, and explanations about the cultures, creatures, and lands I write about. They will also contain news on any freebies or giveaways that could be coming up!

They just began today (May 26, 2016), but will usually be posted on the 22nd of each month, so make sure you sign up now! If you miss any, you can find the link to it on my Twitter the day of their posting, but freebies/giveaways will only go to those who have subscribed to the newsletter.
