Aquavit “water of life” is a real Scandinavian liquor that inspired my first novel.
With the publication of BLUENESS in 2019, AQUAVIT’s ebook is currently free. Amazon warned me that they control free pricing, so please download soon if you are interested. You can also order through other booksellers.
Imagine having several months to escape from your daily routine. Where do you go and what do you do? Kat Jensen boldly decides to go on a sea voyage on an old clipper ship. But was this the right decision? Follow along on her adventures starting with Aquavit, the first book in the Aquamarine Sea series.
