Edward Ware Thrillers Newsletter September, 2018:

During the past month Cheops Books LLC has promoted a number of young adult titles by Dora Benley. We concentrated on her Egyptian series, Doom of Egypt, Curse of the Pharaoh, Curse of Egypt, Demon From Egypt. Most recently we have been promoting King Richard 1: A Novel.

On October 1 we will publish Armistice Plot on Amazon Kindle and on Smashwords. The paperback edition will be available on the Cheops Books website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org. You can sign up to win 1 of 100 free copies of the book on Goodreads.

Lieutenant Edward Ware fights the Kaiser and Adolf Hitler in a century gone insane.

The novel Armistice Plot begins at an archaeological site at Carchemish in 1914 as Edward Ware’s father and Leonard Woolley close down their dig in the face of war. As Edward peers into the tent at midnight he sees a dark-robed intruder brushing past the figurine of an ancient Hittite king that he and T.E.Lawrence excavated at Carchemish this summer in 1914.

Is this a spy sent by the Germans to steal the maps Lawrence is sketching for the British military? Edward first encounters the vamp who will haunt the rest of his life prowling among the finds, looking for the military maps that his fellow archaeologist T. E.Lawrence is drawing for the British government.

All during the ensuing Great War Edward must fight to keep the maps secret. Finally during the Battle of Damascus Edward and Lawrence defeat the Turks and make them sue for peace. They will sign the Armistice ending the war. But the vamp, though imprisoned in Damascus, escapes. Edward must chase her down.

There are hints that she is fleeing to join with the Austrian corporal, Adolf Hitler, who is beginning a new movement in Munich. Signs of a new war appear on the horizon though the first has just come to an end with an Armistice that isn’t worth the paper it is written on.

This is an historical thriller about Edward’s contest to the death first with the German Kaiser and then with Hitler himself. It will determine the woman he will marry and the woman he will not. It will drive him to the brink of madness in a century gone insane.

 Paris Peace Plot will be published on Armistice Day November 11, one hundred years after the end of the Great War. We have a definite World War 1 theme this autumn. You can sign up to win 1 of 100 free copies on Goodreads. The paperback edition will be available only on the website.

Goodreads Giveaway Over For Old Faithful Plot:

Last night at midnight the Goodreads Giveaway ended with 435 entrants. 100 free copies of the alternative history thriller were distributed to the winners. Hopefully they will remember to review the Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel by Dora Benley.

While they are hiding out from Dora’s husband at the Old Faithful Lodge in 1933, Dora and Edward are also hiding Lawrence maps that Churchill has given them and which Hitler would do anything to get his hands on in Old Faithful Plot.

Enter Helga and Herr von Wessel, Hitler’s top spies. They warn Colonel Sir Edward Ware and Dora that either they hand over the top secret maps, key to world domination, or they will blow up Yellowstone National Park. They will turn the famous geyser basin into volcanic rubble – and the rest of America, too, which would be buried in volcanic ash just like Pompeii.

And if that doesn’t work they have an even darker plot up their sleeves, one that would change history itself.

Old Faithful Plot is book seven of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series. Other books in the series include Paris Peace Plot, Salisbury Affair, Captive at the Berghof: Parts 1 and 2, Dark Horse, and Hitler’s Chief Spy.

Chapter 1: Hamburg Harbor July, 1935

Edward looked from one end of Hamburg Harbor to the other, searching for his wife.
“Have you seen Lady Ware?” he asked Brigadier “Wickie” Roberts.

His superior was about to board the Deutschland. The ship featured the new Hitler turret, which they had just gotten a chance to review in the parade of ships up the Elbe River. He and Brigadier Roberts were part of the British military mission sent to Germany by Prime Minister Baldwin to celebrate the recent signing of the Anglo-German Naval Treaty.
 The brigadier shrugged. “Not recently.”

“When was the last time you saw Dora?” Edward pressed.

“Right before the parade of ships. She was in a heated discussion with Frau von Wessel, you know, the wife of the Commercial Attaché at the German Embassy in London.”

The German Chancellor, Adolf Hitler, had been doing his best to distract Edward with probing questions. Frau von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, was likely after his wife about the same thing that Hitler was after him for — the Lawrence maps.

“Edward!”

A five foot five lady with her tightly curled chestnut brown hair pinned in a bun back against her neck rushed toward him. His wife of ten months looked rattled. Yet she managed to maintain her dignity and keep her sharply peaked black Elsa Schiaparelli hat from Paris straight on her head.

As he took her arm he hissed, “Where is Thomasina?”

“Lucy was carrying our baby. Now they are both gone because of that Von Wessel bitch!” Dora gritted her teeth.

“What happened?” he pressed.

“I was having tea with the other ladies. I turned around to ask Lucy if she wanted a cup. She and Thomasina had disappeared.”
 “Hitler used the parade of ships as a distraction to kidnap our daughter.” Edward whispered to his wife as they advanced toward the boarding ramp surrounded by members of the German Embassy in London and various other military personnel representing Great Britain. “I would not put anything past that bastard after he killed Lawrence practically right in front of my eyes in May.”

Julia: A Romance Gets Two Reviews On Goodreads:

Julia: A Romance by Dora Benley was just published by Cheops Books LLC on April 9. That was the date that the Goodreads Giveaway distributed one hundred free copies of the Kindle edition of the historical romantic thriller. Two reviews have since that date been posted on Goodreads.

Kayla Tornello wrote, “I enjoyed this book’s setting in ancient Rome, although the characters seemed rather on the modern side at times. The main character, Julia, is reluctant to marry Sisenna. This creates drama, but it gets rather tedious at times. Also, the romance part only comes at the very end of the story. Perhaps I would have liked this book better if I had been a younger reader. I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway. Yay!”
Mary on Goodreads also posted her review, “Wonderful romance!”

The novel Julia: A Romance may be on your reading list soon.
