Celebrate #AuthorsforIndies #IndependentBookstoreDay on May 2nd!

Image
I have a shameless love for small independent bookstores, such much so that every book signing we've had has taken place in one, but this Saturday, we'll be celebrating Independent Bookstore Day with Babar Books. Join us from 1pm-5pm at their downtown Montreal location, for news about the upcoming Damson's Distress, The Slave Galley, Tales from Frewyn Vol. 3. There will be giveaways, and, of course, there will be chocolate. And maybe cake.

Livanon has the high bombard, Gallei has the whirring wheelfiddle, and while Frewyn has many different types of bagpipes, there is no set more offensive than the Karnwyl species.

Story for the Day: The Westren Breacan

The breacan is the traditional dress of Westren. Worn when Westren was a nation of warring clans, the breacan was a symbol of clan pride, and while it's still worn on holidays and at festivals, it has become the unwritten tradition for those belonging to the Westren regiment of the armed forces to wear them for ceremonies and general duty. For those in the Brigade, however, wearing their breacan was a matter of honour whereas wearing armour was a matter of choice.

An extra long story to make up for the few days' absence, but it was with good reason: the edits for Damson's Distress have begun! If you should like to support the book and its prequel novella, visit our Patreon page here.
