Today marks Samhain, the ancient Celtic New Year. It is a time when the Veil between the Worlds is thin, or in some cases non-existent. Spirits of the ancestors walk among their descendants, offering wisdom and wise counsel, if we are ourselves wise enough to listen.
This is the background against which the first volume of The Glastonbury Chronicles was written. UNEASY LIES THE HEAD opens with Stephen Windsor celebrating his 25th birthday on 31 October 2065. It is also the 25th anniversary of his father Richard's death. It is a magical time, when the forces of the ancient Celtic Gods interact with mankind and anything can happen, and in this case, does, setting the scene for all manner of interesting revelations and complications in history, both past and future
The second volume in the series, THE SWORD OF THE KING went to press last week It is available for pre-order from Pendraig Publishing and should be up on Amazon.com within a few days.
May you all have a Blessed Samhain.
