I am so excited about this coming weekend  I will be signing my novels, all 9 of them, at WonderCon on Saturday  March 30 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Greater Los Angeles Writers' Society booth, 1022 at the Anaheim Convention Center.  Such a great opportunity to meet and greet people and to make new friend.  Last year's WonderCon was a fabulous experience and I know this year's will be even better.

Right now I am working on the guided meditations for the Tarot of the Sword and the Rose, which I hope to have not only as a part of the book that will go with the Tarot deck, but also as an audio CD set.  The cards are in the very capable and talented hands of Holly DeFount, a marvelous artist, who is illustrating them from my written descriptions.  It takes time and a lot of work to illustrate 78 cards and the back of them, but we hope to have the deck finished by late 2014 or early 2015.

Meanwhile I am preparing for my journey to Brighton, England for the World Fantasy Convention this coming October.  I will have the chance to do a lot of research while I am over there, and I foresee Dubhghall having several more adventure throughout history, at least one in the Elizabethan Age and one in the Victorian Age, and probably a whole lot more.  Remember, he has said that he has lived so long he may not remember all his adventures in the order of them happening, just as you or I do not necessarily recall our lives in linear sequence.

As for The Lads, as I am wont to call the King and his Knight and the other members of the Companions, will they be back?  Perhaps.  They have been chattering in the background recently, though not loudly enough for me to hear more than murmurs.  There are stories yet to tell of lives lived between the books in the Glastonbury Chronicles, stories only partially recounted in flashback or recounted in part by Dubhghall.  And  then there are the Glastonbury Archives, peripheral accounts and such.  The Tarot of the Sword and the Rose is one such work, as the Tarot was mentioned in some of the books and will be recreated in full.  There is at least one journal, a page of which was included in an earlier work, and more, stories by others, including Dames of the Order, all of which round out the true history of he Order of the Sword and the Rose and those who have created it and kept it alive for all these millennia.  

What else?  Well, that is for them to know and me to find out!
