Edward Always Tells a Good Story

... but somehow, it will differ greatly from the truth.

From December 3 until Christmas, a different short story or excerpt by my historical fiction writer friends will be posted every day  
on Helen Hollick's blog:
The shared theme is DIAMONDS





On December 13, it's Edward's turn to charm the gullible Mrs. Joe Bunting. Snuggled into the folds of her short neck sits a strand of exquisite South Sea Pearls. While Edward compliments her on them, his appreciative eye immediately spies the large yellow diamond in the clasp. Something he will not comment on in case the woman might grow suspicious.

After their delightful lunch with several glasses of heady California Chardonnay, Betsy Bunting foots the bill for Edward to accompany her on her trip to Egypt. In a strictly platonic manner, of course.

  You can Read Edward's entire California Interludes

December 12 - 16

Once in Cairo, our wily Edward becomes the nemesis to my protagonists in the modern portion of the Legends of the Winged Scarab series (Books 2-5) where he is no longer quite so charming, to put it mildly.

My Favorite Bad Boy - FREE


 February 13 - 17, 2016
 on Amazon.com


 Edward Guernsey-Crock became such an important character that several reviewers mention him in their Reviews of The Legends of the Winged Scarab series. (Alas, as time and the series progress, the delightful Edward turns a lot less ‘charming’ and increasingly villainous; I enjoyed writing about him. I guess, even good girls become fascinated with bad boys.)

From The Nile Conspiracy (Book 5):
"Not only has Borg published four [five] full length books, there is a novella that enlightens us about one of the main protagonists, Edward. I haven’t read it yet, but I did buy it, for it seems key to grappling with this vital character."

"Borg's narrative is eloquent, witty and stylish; her characters are memorable and there is a great balance between ironic detachment and powerful dramatic involvement."
* * *
"Borg takes her characters and story to different types of adventures and genres."

From The Crystal Curse (Book 4):
"Are there other books by this author that might also be helpful? An intriguing novella, Edward, Con Extraordinaire, Stories of Deceit nicely deals with one of the main characters and, due to its brevity, provides a nice relief."
* * *
"A few characters [Edward] from the previous books also make an appearance here to add to Jonathan and Naunet's discomfort."

From After the Cataclysm (Book 3):
"Borg's characters all grow in this book, some in ways more pleasant than others." [Oh, yeah. Edward is becoming slimier by the day.]

From Sirocco, Storm over Land and Sea (Book 2):
"Edward convinces Naunet to join him for lunch and the adventure begins... He and Karakurt have taken two of the tablets. They need Naunet to clear and translate them. She is kidnapped."
*
Several Reviewers could see Edward played by David Niven ("at his most cheeky"); In a movie-version (don't I wish) I see my Brit dashingly portrayed by a younger Charles Dance (as in White Mischief, or Pasquale's Island). What do you think?

FREE Ride for Bad Boy Edward



Since this bad boy has somehow weaseled his way into several of my novels, I thought I'd give him away FOR FREE to wet your whistle for his further machinations.

In Sirocco, Storm over Land and Sea, he only kidnaps my lovely protagonist Naunet. Oh, I just remembered, he is also an accomplice to murder.

In After the Cataclysm, he lurches about on board the ghost ship scaring the heck out of Naunet once again.

And, by the way, in Shadow Love, he is also briefly remembered by Monika as the lousy con he turned out to be.
