Internet Book Fair Blogfest and Weekly Progress Report

If you're looking for my Spooktacular Giveaway, click here.


M.A. Leslie is hosting an Internet Book Fair today! So today I'm highlighting WOMAN OF HONOR, the first book in my Kingdom of Arnhem fantasy romance series.

WOMAN OF HONOR is the story of Aislinn, a young girl who wants to become a knight.

Currently it is only available in ebook format, but sometime next year, WOMAN OF HONOR will be available in print!

Some reviews:

"Woman of Honor has all the best elements of an epic adventure – danger, self-discovery, unrequited love, true romance, and noble expectations....Woman of Honor provides a refreshing escape from the standard, making it a novel worth enjoying more than once." Becca Dale - Got Romance! Reviews

"Nicole Zoltack provides a well crafted story that focuses on emotion and anticipation. Not only a book that a young adult would enjoy, but a woman of any age who wants to enjoy romance and a strong heroine and how she gained her strength."  Em Epe - Dark Diva Reviews

"This was such a interesting read to watch the characters mature from children to young adults. This book kept be interested from the very beginning ... I kept urging Aislinn on to make her dream come true." Lynn - Books Books and More Books

"...I found Woman of Honor an enjoyable, fast-paced read and look forward to more in the series..." Classic Romance Revival

"This is a very wonderful story about a girl's dream and her chance to achieve it" CoffeeTime Romance

With sword fights, passionate love, mythical creatures, and courtly games, Woman of Honor is my kind of book...In conclusion, I thoroughly recommend this book for everyone that enjoys fantasy, romance and adventure! I will be eagerly awaiting the sequel, Knight of Glory. Book Reviews by Aubrie

"This novel was so emotionally moving my heart literally ached... Bottom line...Woman of Honor is a well-told, emotionally gripping story. I was literally swept away into the battle scenes, the romance, the fierce loyalty and honor even if it went against matters of the heart. I nearly cried several times while reading this story and was so engrossed a bomb could have gone off outside and I would've kept reading...And talk about an ending that leaves you begging for more. Sheesh! But it was more than satisfying." Michelle Sutton - Author of Danger at the Door and First Impressions (Posted at Goodreads)

"Nicole Zoltack's Woman of Honor weaves the tale of the first lady knight of Arnhem. Sprinkled with historical facts, bullies, and a good dose of love and honor, Woman of Honor is a coming of age novel set in the fantastical medieval world of Arnhem Kingdom...By the end, I craved more from this fantastical world, and I'm glad Ms. Zoltack supplied it in her next book." Raven and the Writing Desk Blog

"Full of action and adventure, Ms Zoltak has created a wonderful tale which keeps the pages turning right up until the heart stopping conclusion and leaves the reader wanting more." Happily Ever After Reviews

"In this captivating medieval fantasy romance, Aislinn dreams of becoming a lady knight to honor the death of her fallen brother, and King Patrick grants her wish. Despite the mockery of the other pages, Aislinn commits herself to her dreams and embarks on a journey of self-discovery, and falls in love with Prince Caelan. Aislinn is willing to give up her childhood, her life, and even her heart for her kingdom." Renaissance Magazine - November 2009

Weekly Progress Report:

 Well, we're back home from Erie and I manged to finish the editing job that I had started last week. I now have another one that I'm hoping to turn in by the end of the month.

I'm planning on working hard to finish my MG fantasy story before November. I'm hoping to have this story and my Nano story done (well, rough drafts anyways) before the new year. Am I crazy? Yes I am. Especially since I'm also taking part in PiBo (30 PB ideas in 30 days also in November)

I'm also reading DEAD OF NIGHT by Jonathan Maberry. I'll be posting a review as soon as I finish it.

Since Halloween is coming, there are a couple of chances to win my short paranormal YA story, Seeing for the First Time. One is here, the other is here.

Also, Laura had me on her blog as a Savvy Sensation! I would love for you to check it out!

So what have you been up to this past week? Anything fun or new or exciting?

Check out some other great progress report this week:

WOMAN OF HONOR sounds intriguing. I'm off to Amazon to check it out.

If you can spare a moment, check out my book fair entry where a lonely street orphan begans a dangerous relationship with a love (and flesh) starved Victorian ghoul in the French Quarter under a voodoo moon. Roland
