I was working diligently on The Queen of Iceland, but as happens sometimes, another story has pushed itself from the back of the page to the front of the line. It frustrates me, but speaking with other friends who are writers, I find this is a fairly common occurrence.
This is part Historical Fiction, part archeology, part crime scene investigation, a most unusual direction for me. But there is an urgency to write it.
Here is the pitch.
A long time ago something very terrible happened in this village. Every man, woman, child, infant, and animal was brutally slaughtered.
The attacker’s message to outsiders was clear – “What happened here is none of your business. Forget this place or suffer their fate.”
And no one came near for fifteen hundred years.
Possible cover design.
