Blotober Day 11 – New Book Alert!

Y’all know I’m all about new books. I’ve come to understand that buying books, collecting books, and reading books are very different hobbies.

I’ve also come to understand that I’m a middle aged mom who reads YA fantasy. Don’t judge.

When I heard about this new book coming out I jumped all over it. Here. Check out this blurb.

A Dowry of Snails and Mud

by Brittany Tucker 

Book release date – January 10, 2023

16-year-old, Rhia Caddell, doesn’t know what’s worse-arranged marriages or high finance.

Now she’s stuck with both when her desperate father agrees to marry her to the oh-so-dainty Prince of Wales in an attempt at royal tax negotiations. As a farmer, Rhia prefers toiling in the earth over romance. Life in a fiefdom requires muscle, and what good is a man who can’t outlift her or bring a belligerent steer to the ground?

But now, the pressure has fallen onto her to woo (or intimidate) her new, royal husband into erasing her village’s debt before the king’s final deadline comes due. Problem is, the prince has been given the same task-to sway his new wife, the mayor’s daughter, into forking over the gold and finally earning his father’s approval.

For Rhia, losing their new, delicate game would mean turning over the only life and home she’s ever known to the king. Winning, though, could mean giving up the fragile prince she’s tried so hard, and failed, not to love.

Oh my gosh! How great does that sound? But wait, there’s more. Let me tell you a bit about the author.

About Brittany Tucker

Brittany Tucker lives on an island off the coast of Washington state with her husband, daughter, a menagerie of fur-children, and her imagination. She prefers generic cereal, collects tattoos and action figures, and was in the top 5% on the planet for ship’s sunk in Assassin’s Creed III.

She studied old Hollywood story telling and script writing with professionals, and works with children and teens in youth ministry, giving her a deeper insight into what young readers crave in stories.

Brittany also likes to write books from time to time. (Just kidding, all the time.)
