Today I’d like to welcome L.J. LaBarthe back to my blog to discuss her m/m historical novel, City of Jade, set on the Silk Road. Over to you, L.J.!
Thanks for having me guest on your blog again, Jacqui. It’s always great to be here and I’m thrilled to be able to talk about my latest release, City of Jade.
City of Jade is set in the twelfth century and is the story of Misahuen of Gyeongju in Korea and Gallienus of Constantinople. The laws of the period were extremely harsh in regards homosexuality in the Byzantine Empire and the West, and Gallienus and Misahuen, because of those laws, planned to leave Constantinople and seek their future elsewhere. The book explores their deepening relationship as they work as caravan guards for a merchant and his family, travelling along the Silk Road from Constantinople to Hangzhou in China.
