It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun to research and write. And, I think, even better than book one, because I’ve learned a lot about the writers craft in the last three years, thanks mostly to the invaluable mentorship of Janet Morris and Christopher Morris of Perseid Press.
The Strife of Camlann continues the story begun in The Retreat to Avalon. Here’s the teaser:
Arthur’s Men have returned to Britain to keep the peace between fractious allies. Gawain wants only to raise his family and forget the war, yet he carries a heavy burden: an oath to maintain a terrible lie.
But is it a lie?
Looming conflicts threaten more than any border or throne. The course of history, the future of the Britons, will be decided at Camlann.
This is just a teaser, of course. There is a lot packed into this story: ancient Welsh legends, known history and just enough of my own invention to tie them together.
I will get into the details behind the story in future blog posts, but once again, I added an extensive glossary of terms and locations, as well a comprehensive list and short description of virtually every personage mentioned in the book. As always, I would love to hear from you with questions, comments, critiques, anything.
And if you read the book and enjoy it, I would appreciate it so much if you could take a moment and leave a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. It is such an important thing for any author, and I can’t express my thanks enough for those who do.
So what’s next? Book III, Three Wicked Revelations. In this book we go back to the beginning of the Arthurian Age, and see the events and people that shaped Britain after the end of the Roman occupation, including the rise of Arthur! It’s already in the works, and will be a lot of fun. So until next time, thanks for stopping by, and, as always, please feel free to comment!
