CELTIC SPICE NEWS!
Well the news is OFFICIAL! Harlequin SPICE has picked up two more of our "Celtic Spice" antholgies!! Celebrating the ancient traditions, legends and myths surrounding Celtic festivals, Charlotte, Kristi and I teamed up to create these unique anthologies based on a legend of the festival and stories set in three different time periods that relate back to that festival.
Its been a challenge and a serendipitous adventure as the muse strikes and somehow we come up with these ideas! Plotting and sculpting a story and helping each other sculpt our stories has been a very fun and rewarding venture!
So we hope that Showtime will see the brilliance of these stories and decide to put them on just after the Tudors--we'd be okay with that!! LOL
Watch for the first in this smash SPICE series coming to bookstores, November 2009 with the first book, 'WINTER'S DESIRE." Based on Winter's Solstice, this anthology brings into play an ancient chant between two star-crossed lovers and their forbiddden love.
Coming subsequently will be our "Celtic Spice" anthologies based on the ancient Beltane and Samhain festivals, with more to come!!
Also watch for the launch of our new sister blog site "Sisters of the Celtic Spice" that will feature Celtic legends and lore as well as special features on how we do the research, music and fun places to visit for inspiration and other exciting events we have planned in association with this series!
