Final Cover Yohl IkNal_DD

Special Amazon KDP Promotion

My new novel The Visionary Mayan Queen: Yohl Ik’nal of Palenque is free for 5 days (April 17-22, 2014)

Here’s your opportunity to get my new book FREE.  If you like historical fiction with romance, suspense and intriguing portrayals of actual historic people, this book is for you.

Compelling historical fiction about one of the most powerful women in the Americas. Yohl Ik’nal was the first Mayan woman ruler, her visionary powers destined to guide her people through social turmoil and enemy attack as she preserved her dynastic lineage and left her mark on history. Facing betrayal and revenge, her love for her father steeled her will as he trained her for rulership. Dedicating her life to her dynasty and people, she feared no romantic love would ever be hers, but found a surprising and sustaining relationship.

She foresaw times of turmoil coming to her city. Succession to the throne was far from certain, and she vowed to maintain her dynasty. Could she prepare her headstrong daughter for rulership, or help her weak son become a charismatic leader? Her choices would lead to ruin or bring her city to greatness.

Centuries later Francesca, part-Maya archeologist, helps her team at Palenque excavate the royal burial of a crimson skeleton, possibly the first Mayan queen’s tomb ever discovered. She never anticipated how it would impact her life and unravel a web of ancient bonds.

Extensively researched, accurate archeology, historic and fictional characters and an engaging, suspenseful plot.

  1. Hi, Lennie! Anne Lessing in El Peten sent me your link. I met her in 2009 at that Maya Reunification celebration. I’ve been to Palenque & saw the Red Queen’s tomb – I always want to learn more about what it was like to live there & then! I am a psychologist, amateur archeologist, & student of life before electricity & mass media.

  2. Hi Cameron, I meant to reply to you sooner, got sidetracked completing Book II of my series about the Queens of Palenque. Its now being published and should be out on Amazon any day, yea!! Your interests match mine and I hope you keep reading my blogs about ancient Mayas. Just wrote one today about the Long Count calendar. Do you get my blogposts? If not, I’d be happy to add you to the email list. Anne Lossing is such a lovely person, I really enjoyed being with her at Activation Maya gatherings.
