First Review for THE HORSEMEN'S GAMBIT

The first review is in for THE HORSEMEN'S GAMBIT, Book II of my Blood of the Southlands trilogy, which will be released in January. 

Romantic Times gave it four and a half stars (!) and said:  "Coe manages to take several serious, weighty issues, approach them from distinctly different points of view and make you sympathetic toward characters who sometimes act selfishly or viciously.  He absolutely nails the plot and sequencing.  This book is the best yet in the series."

Needless to say, I'm pleased.

Congratulations on the review.

Now, if the authors who series I read would just speed up the process... Actually, I'm quite pleased with the speed at which your books come out. None of that 1 every year for 3-4 years and then nothing for 5 years...

Now, why hasn't Amazon sent my copy yet? :)

Well, it's not out yet. The review is based on the advanced reviewer copy. But soon. January 20th, I believe. Barack Obama's inauguration is only the second most important thing happening that day....

Thanks for the preorder.

I agree with Romantic Times 100%, David. Since I have already read the ARC that I found a few months ago online and purchased immediately.

Of course I'm still buying the hardback when it comes out.

Thanks so much, Alis. Glad to hear that David enjoyed it so much (though I wish he'd return it to you . . .) This series was difficult for me at the outset -- it took me longer than usual to fall in love with the characters and the plot line. But it happened eventually and I think those early struggles actually made for a better series.
