I started this book ("Raven's Daughter") in 1995, got about 56,000 words into it and suffered a total computer crash. Needless to say, I was heartbroken. I had a lot of it in longhand, but the prospect of doing it all over again was a bit more than I could bear, so I started in on the two series "The Glastonbury Chronicles" and "Tales of the Dearg-Sidhe" which Pendraig Publishing picked up in 2010. Then a few months ago my wonderful husband, Jay T. Mayer happened to find a file on one of his old computers. He had backed up the entire 56,000 words for me and forgotten about it. It was in a very old form of Word, and on Mac format instead of PC, but with a lot of work he was able to convert it and deliver it to me in a format with which I could work.
Two months later, to the day, I finished the book and turned it in to my publisher, and last night the publication date became finalised. To say I am elated would be an understatement!
