First order of business…CONGRATULATIONS CRYSTAL!!!!!!!!!! HAPPY LAUNCH WEEK!!! I’m so super excited and proud to celebrate with you. Crystal is a force in this industry. She’s about to take over!
The best part about being a deb is meeting awesome fellow writers who inspire you to be better. Crystal undoubtedly steers our debutante ship. Always encouraging us with informative articles, always pushing us to be just as tech-savvy as she is, always down for a good glass of wine. Crystal is a force in this industry. She’s about to take over!
There’s not much that hasn’t been said about Crystal’s amazing historical. (Check out the Goodreads page, nothing but awesome praise!) Everything about this book makes me want to throw myself a fancy party, planning with meticulous detail. My fellow deb no doubt did her homework when it came to writing this book. But what really intrigued me was the beautiful names she used for her characters, named after real Romans of that era. Names, albeit, I had a hard time pronouncing. (Ha ha!) Hence, I turned to Google for help!!
(Side Note: LOVE the meaning! Feminine form of Aelius. Aelius is a Roman family name which was possibly derived from the Greek word ‘ηλιος (helios) meaning “sun”.)
There are other names too that are fun like Rúan and Tycho but you’ll see for yourself when you pick up her book!
