Development Pitch

Sword of Gold is the type of story that would fit easily onto the big screen or TV. This book has great dialogue and interesting, well-developed characters who embark on an epic journey. There are many twists and turns to the plot. My readers enjoyed the unexpected ending. This is the first novel in an ongoing series. While this story focuses mostly on adventure and romance, the other books have more magic and violence.
