to let you know, the first book in my Medieval fantasy series, Celtic Stewards Chronicles series, Druid Warrior Prince, is on sale for $.99 today at Amazon.

Synopsis:

Gwenevieve Macken’s well-ordered world falls into chaos as encroaching interlopers scheme to possess both her and her land. Although she’s been trained to spot the signs of inhuman evil in men, the amassing armies take on guises she never expected.

When a foreign guardian presents himself as her only option for salvation, Gwenevieve must make a choice between her desires, and fulfilling the mythic fate to which she was born. A forced marriage to a Tuatha dé Danann warrior isn’t part of her plan.

For a tad bit more about the story, Gwen is a lively, independent young woman who, through her apunk finds herself wedded to … shall we say though he’s someone she’d long thought might be her knight in shining chainmail, didn’t exactly match the picture in her head? 😉

Writing during a global crisis and a sale

Sunday. It’s been a minute or two since I posted here. I’ve been busy!! In fact, I’ve done a lot of stuff in the background, with regards to my site and my novels and stories that are currently available, and am in the beginning stages of writing a new book, having come off the back of releasing one and writing another.

Those of you who are my long time readers* are thinking “Juli, that sounds typical for you”, isn’t it? Even a pandemic doesn’t seem able to stop the writing, for me. I’m not bragging. I’m lucky in that, I realize. I’ve not had a bad case of writer’s block in decades. And at one point, I suffered a bout that lasted several years.

How do I avoid it now and write so many things at once? I don’t know. I think it stems from when I was a college student. Back then, I got used to studying for several classes at once and that…helps(?). I can partition my thoughts to allow the story ideas to flow while I’m cooking dinner or insert-other-boring-life-chore-here. That’s the best explanation I have for it. From there, the habit carried into writing (to the point of where I seem unable to write only one series at a time. :)) Which is frustrating, sometimes, I’ll admit.

More than that, I think the ability to write through anything just has something to do with my mindset towards it. While I participate in Nanowrimo, I don’t–and maintain, you shouldn’t–wait for an arbitrary date to begin your stories. I write whenever I can, whether it be a note or a paragraph from my character’s point of view. That’s how you get it done when time seems against you. *nods* Or at least it’s how it works for me. Heck, the writing even can help me from dwelling–er, focusing too much on that crisis, and for that, I’m very grateful. May you find your own rhythm to writing during a crisis.

(**Speaking of my writing, if you’re not currently one of my readers and would like to check out something I’ve published for free, I  have  some titles still in the Kindle Lending Library, if have Prime and you’d like to read them. There are also three free things and some other inexpensive books out –which you might say is a bargain, compared to some book prices out there–let’s face it, I’m not one of those charging $9.99 for my ebooks! *looks to the silly ones in NY* In fact, if you are an historical fan, there is a giveaway/sale that’s in progress for the next few days, if you wish. Check it out here:

 

My historical romance novel House of Dark Envy is involved in the sale.

So that’s me, for this little bit. I need to (say it with me) get back to writing! 🙂 Have a good week, all and good luck with your own writing!

WHAT THE CARDS FORETELL MAY BE REAL, AFTER ALL

1793: Having escaped the Reign of Terror, Emilie Maigny took refuge in England, trying to come to grips with the life and loss she left behind. When her brother, Sinjon, returns, a terrifying evil swoops down upon her. Nightmares plague her now, providing strange clues … but to what?

Scottish-born Linton Morrison spent his entire life in luxury, whiling away the hours in intense study of the tarot and the cards’ hidden meanings, but until he met the lovely Emilie Maigny, he would never have guessed how important his study might be–to his life and Emilie’s survival when terrible evil strikes.

Black Friday

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends. I hope you all have (or had) a lovely one. While we’re all eating and out shopping for Black Friday,I tried to find some Thanksgiving creature to tempt you with, but…well, this month doesn’t really lend itself to mythology very much. (There’s no Great Turkey, Charlie Brown, or anything like that…) However, the late, great Jim Henson gave his own spin to the holiday in a show about a bizarre little town called Turkey Hollow that is (or was) on November 22. No, I didn’t get to see it. But it looks like it was really interesting. Or at least, different. (What else do you expect from Henson?) You can read about that in this article.

Well, I think it looks neat. What would you think if you ran across something strange like those Turkey Hollow Creatures? Me I’d probably write a story about them. hehe. I’m grateful for people like Henson for having an imagination like that; without them, I probably wouldn’t be a fantasy writer. 🙂 As Marc and Angel say, I’m thankful for whatever or whoever is sending me –all of us–our unending creative imaginations. 🙂 I’m also grateful to all of you, my readers and friends, who read, encourage, and love what comes out of my imagination. 🙂

Anyway, before I let you all go off to your Christmas shopping, I wanted to let you know that the ebook of KEEPER OF THE GROVE is on sale for $.99, today and tomorrow–for Black Friday. You can find it at Available at Amazon,

Keeper of the Grove (Stewards War, Book 1)

(formerly titled Passion’s Sacred Dance )

Stacy Macken has one goal in mind: saving her renowned history center from greedy creditors. Losing it would be a catastrophe—one she doesn’t know how she’ll avoid.

Until Aaron Fielding arrives. To all human eyes, he is just like any man, but he reminds Stacy of one of the fae. He certainly enchants her like a fae lover would.

But Stacy suspects there is more to this sexy fellow, with his tales of the Tuatha dé Danann, and magical warriors from Celtic legend who protect humanity from a wicked enemy seeking their destruction. Does his appearance mean the end of the world imminent?

Can she, a studious woman more intent on history books with no training in or love of war, possibly have anything to offer when a long-prophesied druidic battle explodes around her?

Bonus: Includes brand new flash fiction piece, “About A Warrior”

 

The Celts had their own harvest festivals, but mainly in early August (Lughnasadh) and (depending on what source you read) again at Mabon at the fall equinox. And let’s not forget the big “New year” celebrations at Samhain. Thanks giving was a part of all those festivities, and friends, family, and …well, celebrating. I think they would welcome this November holiday, as well.

So! To all my friends, enjoy this holiday (and the book!) and have a happy, thankful, safe weekend!
