I finished a trilogy!

There is an especially good feeling about writing the third book in a trilogy. Confession: I’ve only done it once before, with my Elsie Street series.

But a few days ago, I finished up the third book in the Knight’s Tale series. It is called The Knight’s Return, and it begins in April of 1275.

The novel ultimately takes Will and Stephen, young Eleanor, and Amaury de Montfort from their peaceful refuge in France to a ship bound for England, where fate catches up with them in the Bristol Channel (then called the Severn Sea, I found out!).

Instead of a peaceful homecoming, Will and Stephen must instead navigate court life at Windsor Castle, where they are essentially prisoners. (In real life, Eleanor de Montfort was held at Windsor for three years before she was allowed to marry her Welsh prince, Llywelyn, and go on to her own short, tragic future.)

The novel takes Will into what was then considered middle age. He is thirty-six when the book ends, in 1282, and The Knight’s Return has more bisexual content than the previous novels as well. Will is also forced to fight in Edward I’s Welsh war of 1277, an embittering and eye-opening experience for him.

However, I’m glad to say that Will does take Wilecok‘s advice to “trust Stephen… in the end.”

You can find The Knight’s Return ($3.99) only on Amazon and Google Play now, and on Apple, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble on May 20.

***For those kind folks who pre-ordered it on Amazon and are wondering what happened—I’m sorry, but Amazon cancelled the pre-order due to my hitting the Upload button just slightly late. I blame Mercury Retrograde, but it is, of course, my fault! It has never happened to me before, and hopefully never will again. I was forced to re-publish manually even though the book page had previously been set up. So please purchase at the link above.
