As many of you know, ‘Sisters of The Bruce’ is now available both as a book and ebook from your favourite outlets. Over the next few months, there’ll be much to look forward to, including an Online Book Launch with competitions and free giveways as well as an Online Book Tour.
Next year as well, I’ll be making the journey – in real life – to Scotland for a promotional tour, joining in the glorious celebrations of the 700 Year Anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn. It is also a Homecoming Year for many who cherish their Scots heritage and I will be honoured to wander the highlands and lowlands, the stuning cities and villages, the mountain trails and rocky shoreline of Scotland rubbing shoulders with my Scottish ‘cousins’ from near and afar.
Once again, I’ll be taking you along with me on this journey, discovering more of what makes Scotland great – both in the past and present. Along the way, I’ll be gathering research for the next part of the sisters’ story. To see the world through their eyes, that is both my goal and challenge.
Always at my shoulder, I feel the presence of Robert and his sisters. You might find this strange but writing ‘Sisters of The Bruce’ has been a spiritual as well as a literary journey for me. Much like artists, writers of historical fiction need a muse. I know Nigel Tranter, that famous Scottish author who wrote so convincingly about Scotland’s history, would agree with me if he were here today. A muse can be an individual. I wonder if it can even be the land itself, some past tribal memory, which calls and trumpets its tale.
It’s going to be a fabulous time so stay tuned.
