05/25/2012 Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back everyone! I hope this week has seen you all well. I think this weekend will be good for me, since it will be time to relax and such. More people have started floating away at work, going to either new locations or new jobs, and I know that as June starts and progresses that will only happen more frequently. It'll be different, but for now let's focus on something nice.

Today I have 'When Fate Dictates' by Elizabeth Marshall. It is about a young woman named Corran MacDonald who manages to escape from her home during the Massacre of Glencoe. Having made it out of the initial pillaging, she is given a second chance at life by a Highland Stag. Seeing that her home and family are gone she puts her trust into a defector Red Coat named Simon, and together they must find their freedom.

You all know me by now well enough to know that taking history and playing around with it is something I very much enjoy. This is nothing different, especially because it takes some of the myth from that area and tosses it inside. Myths from Scotland and Ireland have always been fascinating to me, but sadly not ones that I've done nearly as much research as I'd like. I do know about the Highland Stag though, as they were seen as creatures of power, protection, and hope, so the idea of someone using one in their story makes me happy, especially since I don't remember the last time I've seen one.

'When Fate Dictates' is available on Smashwords for absolutely free, so there's no reason not to go check it out! It's always my hope that these posts help authors get their stories out at least to a few more people, so please, for this, and for any others that I put up, let your friends know. Getting your information out there is one of the hardest things in the world, so let's help out these authors by telling everyone we know!

Thanks again everyone for stopping by this week. Remember you can still get 'The Light Rises' for $1 when you use coupon AW99C, but only until the 30th, so after next Wednesday it will go back up to $2.99. I look forward to seeing everyone back here on Monday! Until then, have a good weekend!
