Northlore. Folklore stories of the north.

Dear reader,

Northlore 1 - Foklore cover
Click the image for a larger version – it’s worth it!

You may wonder what ‘Northlore’ is. Northlore, as the word says, is the lore of the north. Of Scandinavia, the north of Europe. I participated in creating a book of Nordic stories, the first book of a series. This first book deals with Nordic Folklore (which might be obvious from the above image). I’ve read all the stories in this book and I am thrilled to be featured among many other talented writers and poets (yes, Nordic Lore also has poetry).

If you like folklore, have a look at Amazon.

Hilda - Raggedsock

Hilda 15!!

Dear reader,

It’s finally arrived: the latest edition of Hilda’s adventures – Raggedsock – is now available all over the world and perhaps a few other places!

Hilda - RaggedsockAs you may expect by now, Hilda and William will be facing new strange people and this adventure takes them to a faraway land where they will face all kinds of new problems to deal with. Of course our witch isn’t the feeble kind so things should work out in the end. I think.

From the distant land of Nihon a visitor comes by Hilda’s and Wiliam’s door. An almost similar one visits someone else in Fairy land. This is bound to become the start of a new adventure for the wicked witch and her wizardly companion. A journey brings them to ice, monsters and people with axes and swords. After Raggedsock your life will not be the same any more!

Dear reader,

Who Killed the Clow 320You can now find out who did it. “Who killed the clown?” is live in the e-stores already. Where can you go to find it?

It is on Smashwords, The Amazon family of course, Barnes and Nobles already know (both of them), it is on kobobooks, and our friends at the Apple iTunes store can help you further too.

In case you are not certain any more what this book is about, here is the back cover text:

Lester Jones isn’t your usual detective. He’s a Pagan and sometimes resorts to less common ways to solve his assignments. Lester also isn’t a famous, well-known detective, which is reflected by his lack of clientèle and his financial state. Until one day a client asks him to locate a missing person.
This is the beginning of a hunt for a lady and for the answer to the question “Who killed the clown?” The road to this answer leads Lester past many people and places, along which he also had to admit his love for someone special.

The Challenge by Cas Peace

CHALLENGE TOUR

Dear reader,
Cas PeaceI have something special for you.

Do you know Cas Peace? (This is her on the left, by the way.)

She is the author of a very good fantasy series called Artesans of Albia.

 About The Author – Cas Peace:

Cas Peace was born in Hampshire UK, in 1957, and has lived there most of her life. Her first career was as a horse-riding instructor, and horses remain very close to her heart. She then spent 13 years working for the British Civil Service before leaving the UK to live in Italy for three years, 1991-1994. She speaks passable but by no means perfect Italian, and loves to return to Italy whenever she can.

Cas’s other great loves are anything to do with animals, especially dogs and horses, (she supports many animal charities) and also singing.

Cas loves folk songs and along with her husband, who plays guitar, has performed in many a Southern England folk club. Sometimes they even asked her back! She writes folk songs to accompany her fantasy novels, and offers them as free downloads from her website.

Cas is bringing out a new book which I’m proud to share with you. It’s called “The Challenge”.

Artesans of Albia Series Synopsis:

On a foolhardy foray into a foreign realm, Taran Elijah is attacked by a terrible weapon known as the Staff. Killing its wielder, he escapes into Albia, inadvertently carrying the Staff.

Concerned by the vicious raids that follow Taran’s actions, Major Sullyan of the High King’s forces crosses into Andaryon to seek diplomatic resolution to the crisis. She is captured and tortured by Lord Rykan, aspirant to the Andaryon throne. Slowly dying, Sullyan escapes his clutches. She offers her skills to the Hierarch in defense of his throne, finally confronting Rykan on the field of battle.

Her handsome Captain and lover, Robin Tamsen, embarks on a desperate quest to recover the Staff. But Rykan’s greedy General, Sonten, is two steps ahead of him. If Robin cannot lay hold of the weapon before Sonten does, Sullyan’s life and the lives of all Artesans are forfeit.

The race for the Staff has begun.


TheChallengeNow about the new book.

“The Challenge” is book one of the Circle of Conspiracy which in turn is the fourth book in the triple-trilogy Artesans of Albia fantasy series.

Friend against friend, lover against lover, ally against ally. Conflict is coming …

Nine months have passed since Brynne Sullyan helped forge an alliance between the realms of Albia and Andaryon. A fragile peace reigns as both sides recover from the events of the previous year. Then mysterious raiders strike Andaryon villages. Attempts are made on the life of Albia’s High King. As Sullyan scrambles to find those responsible, unseen enemies threaten to pull apart everything she has worked for, including her marriage.

The alliance begins to crumble, and Sullyan finds herself caught between two monarchs: the king she’s sworn allegiance to, and the man she loves as a father. To betray either one would break her heart, but if conflict is inevitable, she must make a choice…


 

You can find this brand new e-book at Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com, and the paperback is also available through Amazon.com.


 

Review Quotes:

“Cas Peace has a most beguiling method of pulling you into this very well thought out world she has created. You simply fall in love with her characters, and then you cannot put the book down.” P C Dodge, Amazon Reviewer.

“If you enjoy being whisked away to the realm of fantasy, I strongly suggest this unique, special read! Hands down, one of the best fantasy series I have ever read!”Ashley L. Knight, author of FALWYN

“I have just loved this entire series. Cas Peace is a master storyteller, providing a depth and breadth of information about her worlds and their people that is just staggering. Her characters are complex and multi-dimensional, and I have very much enjoyed reading this series. I am also looking forward with great anticipation to her next novel in this series. I heartily recommend this series to anyone who enjoys epic fantasy, strong world-building and beautiful storytelling. Highly recommended!” K. Sozaeva, Amazon Vine Voice and Top 1000 Reviewer.

Cas Peace’s Artesans of Albia trilogy immediately sweeps you away:  the drama starts with King’s Envoy, continues unabated in King’s Champion, and climaxes in King’s Artesan, yet each volume is complete, satisfying.  The Artesan series propels you into a world so deftly written that you see, feel, touch, and even smell each twist and turn. These nesting novels are evocative, hauntingly real.  Smart.  Powerful.  Compelling.  The trilogy teems with finely drawn characters, heroes and villains and societies worth knowing; with stories so organic and yet iconic you know you’ve found another home—in Albia.

Now there’s a fourth book on Albia’s horizon:  The Challenge, also Book One in Peace’s forthcoming sub-series, the Circle of Conspiracy trilogy, proof of more Albian tales on the way.  So start reading now.  I, for one, can’t wait to find out what will happen next.Janet Morris: The Sacred Band of Stepsons; the Dream Dancer series; I, the Sun; Outpassage

Cover reveal: “Who killed the clown?”

Dear reader,

In two weeks I shall publish yet another book. Last month there was the fourteenth Hilda the Wicked Witch book. This month there’s something entirely different. It’s a murder mystery, and it has to be solved by a detective whose ways aren’t the usual ones. Because he’s a Pagan.

Allow me to introduce to you the cover of the new book!

Lester Jones isn’t your usual detective. He’s a Pagan and sometimes resorts to less common ways to solve his assignments. Lester also isn’t a famous, well-known detective, which is reflected by his lack of clientèle and his financial state. Until one day a client asks him to locate a missing person.
This is the beginning of a hunt for a lady and for the answer to the question “Who killed the clown?” The road to this answer leads Lester past many people and places, along which he also had to admit his love for someone special.
