#The Beltane Choice fantastic Blog tour!

Hello again!

This is now the last day of The Beltane Choice 'Rachels Random Reads' blog tour and it's been phenomenal to see how many of the bloggers have loved reading the novel. There are so many fabulous comments that I can use in various future marketing  posts. 

The tour organiser - Rachel Gilbey - I can't thank enough for her professional expertise and general helpfulness. It's impressive to see how many bloggers she has contact with. 

I appreciate and heartily thank each and every one of the bloggers who spent time featuring The Beltane Choice; or who posted a guest post written by me; or who interviewed me; and those who wrote the wonderful clutch of reviews. 

In between visiting the blogs who featured The Beltane Choice, I've been busy getting the second edition of my time travel historical novel The Taexali Game onto Amazon. I'm presently waiting for a paperback proof copy to be delivered and if I'm happy with the colour I've chosen for the back cover, and happy with the interior, I'll be pushing that 'PUBLISH' button asap. I'm expecting that delivery by Friday 19th so fingers crossed! 

Tomorrow, I'll be posting a guest post written by me that was surplus to requirements for the above blog tour so...look out for that.

Slainthe!

#The Beltane Choice blog tour Day 2

What an exciting day 2 of The Beltane Choice blog tour with Rachels Random Resources! 


Book 1 of The Celtic Fervour Saga series, The Beltane Choice, has visited another 3 blogs today and I'm utterly excited to tell you there are already 4 new super reviews for the novel.

The blogs visited today are Ellesea Loves Reading;  Curled Up With a Good Book; Herding Cats. See below for the links.




Here are some of the wonderful recent review comments:

From Stephanie Jane of 'litflits' posted recently on Amazon
"...I enjoyed Jardine's portrayal of late Iron Age life and the landscapes through which our travelling - and sparring - protagonists pass. As she says in an epilogue essay, archaeology is constantly changing our understanding of how these people lived, but I felt I got authentic and honest descriptions from The Beltane Choice.." 

From The Book Reader:
"The Beltane Choice has many good aspects to its story and is thus a good start to a series that I’m excited to follow further .... it was a good reading experience and I’ll recommend it to my fellow readers who love romance novels!
"...What shines brightly within the narrative are the details the author has meticulously researched to create not only an intriguing romance between two people from different clans but an insightful portrayal of the lives and struggles of these people during the early Roman occupation of England. I feel truly educated having not only learning about the late iron age era but the culture of the people of this time. It's riveting, making compelling reading along with the fascinating relationship rituals woven in between."

From 'curledupwithagoodbook'

"This is BRILLIANT! If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know I love historical fiction, and love a good romance and this brings both together spectacularly! The historical aspect of this novel is superb – it’s well researched and true to what we know historically.  The descriptions of the people, places, tribes etc are phenomenal – I literally felt like I was there.  I could imagine the scenery and the characters and thoroughly felt immersed in the story.  I genuinely didn’t want to put it down and wanted to find out what would happen with Nara and Lorcan, the tribes and the Romans.

And I am literally over the moon that I’m on the blog tour for all FOUR of the books in the Celtic Fervour series and cannot wait to read book 2 now!

If you’re a historical fiction fan and love a bit of romance, then you NEED to read this!  Even if you’re not I would definitely suggest giving this a try.  A thoroughly well written and enjoyable novel that comes highly recommended by me! BRING ON BOOK 2!!!


This is BRILLIANT! If you’re a historical fiction fan and love a bit of romance, then you NEED to read this!"

RATING

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


I'm so pleased the bloggers loved reading The Beltane Choice and heartily thank her for taking the time to review. 

AND...at the third blog stop for today

You can read what Nara from The Beltane Choice is like in my guest post for the Herding Cats blog HERE

Look out for more details tomorrow.

#Celtic Fervour Saga goes on a blog tour!

Good morning!

My Celtic Fervour Saga Series begins a super exciting blog tour today- 11th September 2019- with Book 1 The Beltane Choice being featured first. The tour is organised by the very lovely, very professional, Rachel Gilbey of Rachel's Random Resources. I'd recently heard super things about Rachel's tours, some of my fellow @OcelotPress  authors having loved using her services and am excited to get the reader feedback from organising this multiple book tour with her.


I've never used a professional tour service like Rachel's before so I'm hoping it'll give the series a lovely boost. Each book will feature on a number of blogs (21 for The Beltane Choice) over the duration of approx. a week. The other books will tour in Oct, Dec and Jan 2020.

And...By the time January comes around, I'm hopeful that I'll have more news about when Book 5, Beathan the Brigante, will be published.

The work that I've been beavering away on recently - writing different author guest blog posts, choosing unique extracts, and answering author interview questions - is for all of these tours.  I'm so looking forward to reading what some of the blogger say having read the books.

Today, The Beltane Choice is featured at 3 places.
