Book Promotion!


This is definitely the shortest post I’m likely to make for a while. I just wanted to let people know that Book 1 of my Sons of Kings trilogy, Shadow of the Raven will be free on Amazon for three days, starting on April 3.

Anyone who enjoys a Viking adventure tale may be interested in this book. I had another great review on the site only yesterday. The review was headed by the phrase. ‘Well written historical fiction from a rising star.’ I owe huge thanks to that person, whoever it is. It’s no one I know, from WordPress or anywhere else.

Reviews are so important to writers, not just to inflate their egos. They help the writer see what they are doing right, or wrong, as well as helping to get their books noticed. Needless to say, if anyone out there downloads my book this weekend, a review would be soooo much appreciated! Of course, it’s certainly not obligatory. Just downloading it would be of enormous help to me.

Well, that’s it from me for the moment. I’d better get back to writing Book 3 …

    Congrats and way cool! Did you know that I am Danish? Haha, again best of to you.

    • milliethom says:

      Now, ahhsioux, I don’t know whether to believe that or not! Instict tells me it’s just your wappy sense of humour, but who knows…? If you are Danish, I hope you don’t wear your horned helmet too often in public. People might get the wrong idea about you! hahaha. Thank you for that, ahhsioux – much appreciated. 🙂

      • EarthSprout says:

        Actually it’s true. Both sets of Greats 100%. My Paternal Grandmother named Thor, from a farm. Maternal Grandfather a Danish minister. Haha, so less thorny.. Except I’m an Aries (or Ram), so I guess I’m just plain doomed. Fortunately age dulls the thorn;).

      • milliethom says:

        Your comments just get better …! Those Danes just got everywhere, didn’t they? I’m an Aries, too, by the way – birthday a week away. i don’t look forward to birthdays nowadays, they just remind me of how old I am and that depresses me. In my head I’m still in my twenties. Happy birthday to you, whenever it is, ahhsioux. 🙂

      • EarthSprout says:

        OMG!! April 12th. I was born on Palm Sunday. A VERY HBD to you as well!!

      • milliethom says:

        Mine’s April 11th! So, your birthday’s Easter Sunday this year. When that happened to me as a child, people used to give me extra Easter Eggs. Can’t be bad, eh? 🙂

      • EarthSprout says:

        I have one hell of a Twitter feed. I’m going to reblog this on it. This should give you some looksees :). Take care.

      • milliethom says:

        Ahhsioux, I don’t know how to thank you enough for this. Your kindness has really touched me. Thank you so much! 🙂

  2. Wow! Congratulations! I will be looking for it. I get daily emails from Book Bub and frequent emails from EBookHabit. If I don’t see it on those, I will go searching for it. Thank you for letting us know!

    • milliethom says:

      That’s very nice of you, PJ! I think EBookHabit will be sending out tweets for me this time, but it probably won’t be in their newsletter. I’ve never dealt with Book Bub, so I know they won’t mention the book. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my post! It’s very much appreciated. 🙂

  3. Shivangi says:

    congrats Millie…all the best. I will see if I could squeeze some time out to read that..hope your book gets praised by one and all.

    • milliethom says:

      Thank you for your kind wishes, Shivangi. It’s difficult to fit reading time into your day when you’re very busy, especially with a young child – or more! 🙂

    To you Millie! Congrats and thanks for sharing your book promo 🙂 my friend.

  5. Bekki Hill says:

    Congratulations. I too will endeavour to find time. Reviews are so important and so lovely when they appear from people you don’t know – yes, not ego, but just good to know what you’re doing is appreciated and what really touches me is that someone took the time to let me and others know what they thought.

    • milliethom says:

      It’s so good to feel that your writing does appeal to others, as you say. It makes further writing so much more pleasurable, knowing it may reach out to readers other than yourself! As you say, Bekki, it isn’t ego, and it’s really nice to know that someone has taken the time to give their views. (I’m in danger of turning into a parrot right now, so I’d better shut up!) You’re spot on with your observations … big thanks for that! 🙂

  6. Big congrats to you Millie! ❤ The book cover looked so cool and adventurous!!! 😉 I'm sure this book is an amazing read 😉 Wish you a great success on this one! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • milliethom says:

      Thank you so much, Khloe. Your kind wishes mean a lot to me. All your smiley faces and hearts always bring a smile to my face, too. 🙂

      • You’re welcome sweetie 🙂 It’s just a wonderful feeling to know you are releasing your book and I feel like I’m a part of the progress 😛 It’s my pleasure to bring a smile on your face and it is what I like to see 🙂

  7. Norma says:

    I’m so excited for you Millie. 🙂 I wish you and your work all the very best. The cover and the title both look interesting.

    • milliethom says:

      Thank you for those lovely, kind wishes, Norma. I’m particularly happy with the cover. I had a different one for a while for ‘Shadow’ and I was never happy with it. It was bright blue and quite simplistic. The illustrator who did the new covers for both of my books is excellent (and not very expensive, either!). 🙂

  8. Link please for the book

    Fancy reading something that’s a little longer than 100 words? Here you go.

    I’ve had Millie’s book for a while, but I’ve only started reading it last night. I stayed up too long because I couldn’t put it down. It will be free to download for another day or so, so don’t wait.

  10. Reblogged this on fictionwriterwithablog and commented:
    Definitely need to check this out: and soon!

    Reblogged this on The Storyteller's Abode and commented:
    Millie Thom’s books are thoroughly enjoyable to read, with some great characters… and I’m not just saying that because she’s my Mum! Book 1 will be free on Amazon for only one more day.

  12. Reblogged this on Learning To Surf Publications and commented:
    If you like Vikings, you’ll want to check out Millie Thom’s book–featuring those two famous ravens 😀

  13. Sounds intriguing 🙂 I’m adding it to my to-read list, though these days my reading hobby suffers from blogging taking up all my time! I’m in awe of people who can finish writing a book, let alone several! Congratulations!

    • milliethom says:

      Thany you for even thinking of adding my book to your list – even if you never get around to reading it. It’s the thought that counts. I think many bloggers have hobbies that suffer because of blogging. It becomes quite addictive, especially the flash fiction challenges. I know I’ve got to cut down if my book’s ever going to be written. It’s nice to meet you, by the way. I’m sure we’ll be chatting again before too long. I love your travel posts – the photos are stunniing. 🙂
