It's the Cover Reveal for DESPERATE KNIGHT

So. Much. Wow. I am just over the moon about how amazing this cover looks. The color, the sense of impending danger. The dragon. Yeah, the dragon!

One of the things I love about working with Champagne Books, besides the great people, is the quality and attention to detail they provide. The artwork for Champagne's covers is consistently terrific. Whenever I'm at a book event for TRAITOR KNIGHT and put out the banner with my cover, everyone stops by to look and comment on how great it looks. But Trisha FitzGerald, the artist who worked on both my books, has just outdone herself with this one. Outstanding job.

I want to thank all the many wonderful writers and friends who volunteered to share my cover on their blogs and social media. And to thank you for sharing this as well, be sure to check out the Rafflecopter at the bottom of the page--I'll be giving away a $10 Amazon Gift Card.

Book 2 in the Knights of Kilbourne series

by award-winning fantasy/romance author

Keith W. Willis

Coming summer 2017 from Champagne Books


No time… No plan… No options…

No one said saving the world would be easy.

Morgan McRobbie and Lady Marissa duBerry swing back into swashbuckling action, facing old enemies, new threats, and a diabolical conspiracy. Not to mention a more personal battle, one with hearts and pride at stake.

As the pair escorts Prince Robert to the dwarf king’s court, a fiendish scheme is unfolding, intended to hurl men and dwarves into a devastating war. Morgan ends up sidetracked by a kidnapped dwarf and a centuries-old feud, while a mysterious wizard’s revelations shake Marissa to her core, throwing into question everything she thought she knew about her past and future. And the advent of a rival for Marissa’s affections threatens any hope of a happy ending—if they survive.

Once again the desperate knight and indomitable damsel must hazard everything on a single throw of the dice, gambling on untested allies and unimagined weapons to save their world. And the odds have never been worse.

Praise for TRAITOR KNIGHT (Book 1 of Knights of Kilbourne)

“…well-told story with a witty heroine, a noble-yet-flawed hero, and a colorful set of secondary characters. And a dragon! Let's not forget the dragon!” –Tegan Wren, author of Inconceivable

“…a witty and action-packed page-turner that takes the classic fantasy land and adds depth, character, romance and political intrigue to brilliant effect.” -- SFF World

“I recommend Traitor Knight to anyone looking for a good fantasy with just a dash of romance.” – Long & Short Reviews


Keith W. Willis graduated (long ago) with a degree in English Lit from Berry College, Georgia. He now lives in the scenic Hudson Valley/Adirondack region of NY with his wife Patty. Keith is certain those rumbling noises attributed to Henry Hudson's crew are really just the dragons grumbling. He began writing seriously in 2008, when the voices in his head got too annoying to ignore. When he’s not making up stories he manages a group of database content editors at a global information technology firm. TRAITOR KNIGHT (Champagne Books) is his first published novel, and has won awards for both fantasy and romance. The second book in the Knights of Kilbourne series, DESPERATE KNIGHT, is slated for a summer 2017 release.
