Evocatio: How to Woo a Goddess by Elisabeth Storrs

Posted by on May 2, 2016 in Ancient Rome, Featured Book | 2 comments

The third novel in my Tales of Ancient Rome saga is entitled Call to Juno. It is set in the final year of a ten year siege between the Etruscan city of Veii and the nascent Republican Rome in 396 BC. These cities were situated only 12 miles apart across the Tiber River but the differences in their societies were marked.

Accordingly, by crossing a strip of water, it was like moving...

The High Council of Britain by Sarah Woodbury

Posted by on Apr 18, 2016 in Featured Book, Historical Research, Medieval Great Britain | 1 comment

Within British (and by that I mean Welsh/Cymry/Celtic) legend, a High Council—a Parliament of a sort—existed in the Dark Ages to choose a “high king”.  One of these high kings, according to legend, was King Arthur.  Later, during Arthur’s reign, he instituted his ’round table’, a gathering of equals, to discuss the troubles in his realm.  Or so the story goes. But did this High Council ever exist? The answer is ‘yes’—certainly during the reign of the last Prince of Wales, Llywelyn ap Gruffydd.  In...

Bringing color into The Sixth Labyrinth by Rebecca Lochlann

Posted by on Apr 4, 2016 in Featured Book | 2 comments

“I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me.” ~~~~Robert Louis Stevenson In The Child of the Erinyes, a series dealing with reincarnation, only one of the main characters retains memories from previous lives. Because the others come back with a clean slate, so to speak, I’ve had to work out how they find each other in every new experience. One of several methods I use is the aura. It’s part of what draws the triad and keeps them together. Auras are interesting phenomena. Described variously as “a breath,” “an emanation,” “a...
