I hope everyone is having a lovely and satisfying week. I'm taking a short break to plan a trip to Ireland, but next week my nose will be back to the grindstone--not that I mind! On May 15, Erin O'Quinn will bring you a special tale from her forthcoming release, "The Wakening Fire." This is book two in her series about Ireland in the time of St. Patrick and I'm falling in love with the books as I read them, planning a pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick for late in September or early October. Whether or not I make the entire three-hour climb is another matter!
Then, on the weekend of the 19th, The Celtic Rose Blog will be open to promotion from Celtic and historical authors. We will feature a running list in our Comments section on which you can post or browse for contemporary, historical and/or fantasy books in Celtic or closely associated genres. So if this is your interest, feel free to join us.
Meanwhile, here's a picture which is one of my all-time favorites and if I keep looking at it and reminding myself I'll be there in the fall...well, it helps!
DOES ANYONE WANT TO SHARE THEIR FAVORITE ATTRACTIONS, PLACES TO STAY, FOND MEMORIES OF IRELAND?? Many of us would love to hear them! Feel free to share in the Comments section.
