A Samhain romance for Halloween
I’ve written a novelette for Halloween; Samhain Crossing. It’s a paranormal romance with a couple other sub-genres thrown in there. Including, if you really push the point, alternative history.
In other words, it’s a romance I wrote with zero concern about where it would properly “fit” in the market. Or even how it “should” be written.
And I really like the result.
Because this is only a novelette and not part of any of my series at all, I won’t go through the usual ramp up to release day, with the first chapter, etc. Today is the only mention I’ll make of the story until release day, on October 20th. (Just in time for Halloween, what a strange coincidence.)
HOWEVER! As usual, if you pre-order from me, you get the story a week earlier (October 13). And if you don’t want to pre-order, you can STILL buy the story from me direct, any time from October 13 onwards, and still have your story at least a week earlier than anyone else.
So here we go:
They recognize each other across twenty centuries.
On the ancient Celtic feast day of Imbolc, a mysterious, but empty, box is discovered, built into a wall of a first century structure in the ruins of Carn Euny in Britain. Itching for distraction, the dig team drop a note into the box, and the next morning find an answer written in ancient Latin.
Dig director, Doctor Daria Caitini, declares the response a hoax, but when more and more letters arrive on each successive Celtic feast day, Daria finds herself drawn into corresponding with the writer, a first century druid called Cadfan, who is hunted by the Romans, and who recognizes her dedication to her work and her essential loneliness, too….
