The Five-Day Dig is finally here, and you’re one of the first to know! Kindle and Nook editions ($3.99) are up at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and you can get the paperback at Createspace (use the code SQ55F9SW at checkout for 25% off the $12.99 list price). The print version should also be up on Amazon and other sites soon.

Here’s the blurb:

A chance to translate inscriptions near Pompeii is a dream for classics prof Winnie Price, except the dig is for a cheesy TV show. The host is more sensationalist than scientist, Winnie’s boss horns his way in on the project, and her cocky teaching assistant keeps flirting with her—and getting harder to resist.

The other issue is that on her last trip to Italy, her father died there. A spiritual cynic since losing him, she resists reading into the goddess symbols that keep popping up in her life. What concerns her more are a looter’s hole at the dig site and an unexplained collapse in the ruins. Then it turns out the referral letter that got her the gig was forged, and the prime suspect is her—or her assistant.

Add to the mix a reenactment of pagan rites spiced up with a psychoactive homebrew, and Winnie has more to interpret than just Latin.

Wish me luck! I’ll need it.
