Happy Canada Day! And a new fantasy romance anthology!

It’s Canada Day, and there will be fireworks tonight–only here in Edmonton, the daylight lasts until close to midnight, so the fireworks are very late in the evening. 

Too late for moi, alas.  Mark and I get up very early in the morning, so we can get to our desks and write before most of the rest of the world has had its first cup of coffee.  It cuts down on the interruptions, which can be deadly when you’re smack in the middle of writing a fantastic scene.

There have been a lot of interruptions lately–family get togethers, birthday parties, vaccinations.  We’ve re-shingled the roof of the house (it’s now a lovely grey, which does not match the rest of the house — yet), and there are other renovations scheduled for over the summer.

That means writing time will be steadily interrupted all summer, as we’re doing a lot of the work ourselves.  And that means that Canada Day is not a holiday for us.  We have to get ahead!

Although, more positive news:  As of today, most of the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted in our province.  No more masks at the supermarket!  Yay!!

Fans of my Once and Future Hearts series will be pleased to know that my story is part of that series.  I don’t have a title right now (I’ll be writing it very close to the deadline as I’ve had a summer of interruptions, so far), and neither do I have a full description yet.

The story is set in Maridunum (which is modern day Carmarthen) in Wales, which in my series is the birthplace of Merlin.  I was assigned the legend of the Maen Llia stone for my story, which is not far from Maridunum, which made it impossible to not make the story part of the Arthurian series.  And yes, Merlin is part of the story, too.

If you’ve not yet started the series, you can still enjoy this story, but reading the rest of the series will give it a very deep backstory and history for you.  It comes after Downfall of Cornwall in the series.

When I have the blurb for the story, I’ll add the story to the series page.

The Love and Legends anthology is now available for pre-order at all the major retailers.

Enjoy!
