Happy New Year and a request for reviewers

Today is the first day of 2013. As a friend pointed out on Facebook, the new century is now a teenager. It can go to its room a sulk for a while if it likes, but meanwhile the rest of us have to get on with life.

For example, I plan to launch my alternate history King of Trees later this month.  I'm hoping to get a review or two lined up for this one closer to when it launches, as my regular reviewers are a little backed up.  If anyone out there would like to get a free review copy, please post a comment to let me know, or if you prefer, send an email to me directly: carmen (dot) webster (dot) buxton (at) gmail (dot) com.  Be sure to specify if you need epub or Kindle format, but I would like the review to be posted on Amazon US, as to start with, the book will only be available in the Kindle store.

Here's the blurb to see if you're interested:

“What if the world we’re on is only one thread out of millions of threads in the rope of time?” The question the Outsider woman posed to him left Bardolph as confused as ever. He knew the Outsiders had appeared as if by magic many years before, during his great-grandfather’s reign, but he had never understood where they came from. He only knew they had changed Albion forever.

Melissa York might have been grateful to her rescuer, who called himself King of Albion, but she saw no reason to let her gratitude influence her opinion of antiquated notions like monarchy and pagan religions. Let the Druids go back to their forests. She and her people were the best defense Albion had against the invaders.
Bardolph knew better. All the peoples of Albion would need to work together, or they would find themselves conquered again. Only this time instead of a Roman emperor, their tribute would be paid to one in faraway China.  He only hoped the Outsiders were as clever and as powerful as rumor said they were, because Albion needed all the help it could get.
