Jules Watson

Dear Reader,

I'd like to introduce you to my new novel THE SWAN MAIDEN, bringing to life the famous Irish myth of Deirdre, the Celtic 'Helen of Troy': a woman whose beauty brought down a kingdom. Originally depicted as a femme fatale, I've reimagined her as a strong, spiritual woman, who with her lover Naisi defies a king and risks her life for freedom. I was inspired to write by the classic The Mists of Avalon, and THE SWAN MAIDEN includes all the elements I love as a reader—romance, epic battles and the mysticism of the Celtic Otherworld. My Dalriada trilogy about Celtic Scotland's struggle against the Romans received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Kirkus. Kirkus also named The White Mare in the Top 10 fantasy reads of 2005, and The Song of the North a Hot Fantasy Read of 2008.

I am giving away five signed copies of THE SWAN MAIDEN through my website Email me for a chance to win, plus find out more about Celtic history, ancient Scotland and Ireland.

Jules Watson "Mystical and poetic, a tour de force. A magical and compelling recreation of the lost Celtic world." - Rosalind Miles, author of Isolde, Queen of the Western Isles

"In this graceful retelling...Watson captures the sense of tragedy, nobility, and the acceptance of destiny that permeates Celtic myth." Library Journal
