All the editing and formatting are done (I hope) and the proof copy was shipped this morning! If it looks as good in real life as it does on the online previewer, we’ll be able to hit PUBLISH, and The Second Battle will be available for purchase on Amazon in both print and Kindle versions.
The Second Battle is a fictional retelling of the Irish myth of the The Second Battle of Moytura. According to the prophecy, Lugh is destined to kill his own grandfather. Determined to escape his fate, he runs the risk of drawing all of Ireland into war.
The story of Cath Maige Tuired has enthralled readers since the 9th Century. With this fictionalized retelling, the exciting story of the Battle for Ireland between the Tuatha Dé Danann and the Fomori reaches a new generation of young adult readers.
On the evening of St. Patrick’s Day, we’ll be celebrating the release online with some fun and games. Check out the Facebook event page and be sure to join us!
One caveat for sensitive readers, though. If your middle schooler isn’t ready to read, say, some of the exploits of Zeus from Greek mythology, you might want them to wait until their a little older. The book is recommended for ages 13 and older. The gods sometimes have a different idea of what’s right and wrong than humans do.
