What a “Journey” it’s been. We’re near the end of that road. Sometimes it was sunny, other times dark. I have heartfelt gratitude for everyone who has been with me. I’m glad you’re part of the Journeys of “Dead of Winter.” There’s still one more to go.
The Penultimate Journey Is Here!
Dead of Winter: Journey 13, The Harbor
I never intended to do much writing when I decided to convert this epic novel into an Amazon series of monthly novelettes. It was already plenty long. Now the total is more than 1,140 pages and 248,700 words. Plus, nearly all of the concluding Journey 14 will be new material.
Anyway, Journey 13 gave me the opportunity to highlight some of the characters who haven’t gotten as much attention. The prologue features Tahira, the older member of the Society of Deae Matres. Gethin, the horse whisperer, gets another part. Also, the goddesses get further developed.
As most of you know, I call the installments “journeys,” because the characters travel across the complex world I built, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. For those who weren’t around for the beginning of Dead of Winter, this post tells the story of Winter’s Nightmare — or Why It Took 10 Years for me to publish the epic.
Here’s the Blurb
A great battle begins. Action abounds as many threads are drawn together. Arawn has amassed overwhelming legions of the dead. Another unexpected but powerful foe comes into the battle. All of Emlyn’s companions and friends are in grave danger as they face insurmountable odds. Two goddesses could even the odds, but gods and goddesses are known to be unreliable. Will they help? Or will they do more harm than good?
Meanwhile the goal of the Society of Deae Matres is to re-create the Binding to again trap Arawn and any other nightwalkers in the Realm of the Dead. Yet, what about Boabhan and Lucetius? Boabhan is at least half nightwalker. Lucetius, her son, was conceived when Arawn violated her while attempting to turn her. Will they be trapped in a new Binding along with their worst enemy? This is revealed in Journey 13.
Come, be a part of the Journeys of Dead of Winter.
