New historical novels: Josiah Stubb by Chuck Lovatt and The Sun Road by Afiena Kamminga

Hi, Brian.
My second novel, Josiah Stubb: The seige of Louisbourg, has just been released by Wild Wolf Publications.
Chuck Lovatt

"From the best-selling author of TheAdventures of Charlie Smithers.

It is 1758 and The Seven Years War is raging. The military might of the British and French empires collide in a desperate bid to control the key strategic Fortress of Louisbourg and, in turn, Quebec and French-held North America.

One man caught amidst the bloodshed is the young grenadier, Josiah Stubb. Raised by a whore amidst poverty and incest, Josiah seemed doomed from birth to a life in the gutter. His attempt to leave his sordid past behind leads him to Louisbourg, but it comes back to haunt him in the form of a gifted officer, battling his own inner demons.

As the siege blazes towards its inevitable bloody climax, will Josiah live to overcome the formidable obstacles that keep him chained to his past, or will his aspirations for a better life die with him on the brooding shores of Ile Royale?"    

Josiah Stubb is available here.

Hi, Brian.
It's been a few years since I attended one of your workshops in Moncton, but I'm still happy I did as it helped me tremendously to stay motivated and keep plugging away at my historical novel project till its recent completion.

The Sun Road is set in the tenth century, centered on a young woman protagonist who travels from Iceland to Greenland and on to what we now know as Atlantic Canada.

With thanks and best wishes,    
Afiena Kamminga
