I'm thrilled to announce that the Independent Press 2020 New York City Big Book Awards has named Megge of Bury Down the Distinguished Favorite in two categories: Historical Fiction and Cover Design!
Kudos and thanks to cover artist/book designer Tamian Wood of Beyond Design International for her superb work!
Megge's story continues in The Lady of the Cliffs: Book Two of The Bury Down Chronicles.
Opening moments after Megge makes three promises ~ one to Claris, one to Brighida, and one to The Blacksmith ~ The Lady of the Cliffs takes Megge from the momentous conclusion of Book One into a new chapter in her life and a search for the man who robbed her and Brighida of everything they ever cherished.
Formal Launch: Samhain. November 1, 2020.

Rowan Moon is one of the 13 Celtic Tree Months.
As it features the feast of Imbolc, associated with Brighid, the Celtic goddess of hearth and home, it seemed fitting to release Megge and Brighida's story on Imbolc, February 1, and open it with this lovely epigraph by poet Annie Finch:
From the east she has gathered like wishes.
She has woven a night into dawn.
Sincere thanks to Annie Finch and Weslyan University Press for permission to open the enhanced edition of Megge of Bury Down with this lovely excerpt from "Imbolc Dance," taken from Annie Finch's The Poetry Witch Little Book of Spells.
The new, enhanced edition of Megge of Bury Down will be released on February 1, 2020. You will be able to find it on this site and wherever books are sold.
Beginning today, you may pre-order your copy in the Rowan Moon Shop.

My best to you,
Good news for 2020. A new, enhanced edition of Megge of Bury Down is slated for release in early spring in preparation for the autumn release of Megge's continuing story, Lady of the Cliffs: Book Two of the Bury Down Chronicles series.
MEGGE will have a fresh new look, and both books will feature the supplementary material readers have requested: a map with the story locations flagged and a list of characters and their relationships.
An announcement of the release dates is forthcoming! Stay tuned!
My best to you,
