My wife and I recently travelled to the United Kingdom. It was the first time for both of us. There was an abundance of sights to take in--the Tower of London, the Roman relics of Bath, the 1000 year old village of Lacock--but the place I was most excited to visit was an old arrangement of stones that had fascinated me since childhood--Stonehenge.
This mysterious monolith had, in part, inspired me to write my first novel twenty years ago--Crusaders of a Dying Breed. To see the stones before me with my own eyes, after having read written and dreamed about them for decades proved to be nothing short of a surreal experience.
No, I wasn't teleported to an alternate dimension (like what happens in my book). I was simply lost in the splendor of it all.
I recently republished Crusaders with new cover artwork from my friend, Jose Emroca Flores. As usual, Jose gave the cover a much needed facelift in his own unique style. It's an Amazon exclusive, so if you've got a Kindle--check it out!
