Today my Second World War novel Sky Knights is being released with Less Than Three Press.
Sky Knights is about two Soviet aviators during the Second World War who have to face all sorts of trials as they fight the Germans as night bombers in the all-female regiment known to the Germans as the Night Witches.
Sky Knights is a historical fantasy, so there is some magic thrown in there, making some of the Night Witches actual witches.
The official summary:
Dounia and Ira are part of the Nightwitches, an elite squad of night bombers determined to help bring down Axis forces. They are proud and fearless—until tragedy strikes and their plane is shot down behind enemy lines, and their determination may not be enough to get them home safe.
Genre: Lesbian romance, historical fantasy, World War II historical fiction
25 000 words, some explicit content
Sky Knights can be purchased as an Ebook HERE
Sky Knights is also part of the Damsels in Distress collection Bundle 2
So I’ve finished my outline for the story I have planned for the Damsels in Distress anthology.
I might have explained this before (possibly, because ladies in goggles and bomber jackets are my favorite) but my story is taking place in a fantasy AU during WW2. My main ladies are both pilots for the Soviets, specifically night bombers – the legendary Night Witches.
The thing about these Night Witches is that they’re actually witches, just to make things more interesting. I know, more interesting than lady pilots doing death-defying aerial stunts in the dead of night? I know, you can tell I’m excited.
I’m even more excited, because they’re not the only badass ladies to show up in this thing. I’ve also got one of my MC’s younger sister who is a radio comm officer near the front lines as well as a nurse who’s rescuing injured soldiers.
What can I say? Russia had some interesting women.
