Yassa: Genghis Khan's coming-of-age tale Gets an Overhaul

Happy Thursday, good people of the blogosphere! So sorry to be running late today, dental surgery. It was like dancing in the park with fairies at dusk. Yeah, not like that at all. Anyway, on to today's announcement! You know that beautiful historical fiction novel I wrote about dear Genghis Khan? Well, Yassa has gotten an overhaul and a gorgeous new cover. If you've read the book, you understand the significance of the black horse, and if you haven't read the book, why not? You should get to it. Paperbacks with the new cover, and the newly edited interior, will be out by the end of next week. I'll be removing the large type version as well.

Anyway, here's a gander at what's coming!

Title: Yassa: Genghis Khan's coming-of-age tale
Author: Jo Michaels
Genre: Historical Fiction Coming-of-Age
Length (print): 400 pages
Buy links: Amazon Kindle $3.99  ~  Smashwords $3.99  ~  Paperback $7.99

Temujin is the given name of one of the fiercest conquerors in history, Genghis Khan.

Before he became a Khan, he was just a man in love with a woman his best friend tried to steal.

Temujin tells his tale as a look over the life he's lived. He speaks of love, fear, friendship, and betrayal. What once was, can no longer be. Now, he questions his life and realizes the wrongs he committed. But it's too late to go back and fix them.

In this riveting portrayal of his story, you learn about Yassa law, the struggles young Temujin faced growing up, and how one decision changed his life, igniting a conquering of the greatest contiguous empire in history.

Isn't it funny how it all comes back to the love a man has for a woman?

I'd show you the full wrap, but I don't have it done yet. Go. Buy. Enjoy the hell out of it while your toes curl.

95% Fact, 5% fiction. Get to know Genghis and his story.

What do you think of the new cover?

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!



  1. Love the title font and the new direction you took with the cover! I plan to do some revamping too of my back catalog once I get my current WIP off to my editor.

    1. Thanks, Heather! It's been re-edited, too. So excited about that! It was a PITA to change it everywhere, but totally worth it. That dark horse plays such a key role. :) I can't wait to see your changes!
