Freamhaigh Cover

By donald | Freamhaigh Volume Four , Website

I don’t think I have ever displayed the cover of Freamhaigh, Volume 4 of the New Druids novels. That’s wrong! So here it is for your review. I hope you like it.

Update on Freamhaigh

Freamhaigh is progressing nicely. I am a little behind of schedule, but the first draft should be completed before the end of March. Then comes the second draft, and then I can send it out to my beta readers. If you want to be a beta reader please contact me. More than happy to hear why you think you would be a good one.

Interesting New Direction

I may very well conclude the Will Arbor story arc with Freamhaigh. I have much more story to tell but it involves other critical characters. I’ll know soon once I start wrapping up the first draft. How can I simply change things? Truth is, I’m not. Freamhaigh will conclude the Will Arbor arc but not the New Druids series of novels. The next novel, Volume Five, will depart on a new storyline that is introduced in Freamhaigh. I’m excited about this. Hope you are too.

Website Changes

I am working on making changes to my website. I want a parallax site and I am trying to work with a rather expensive WordPress add-on called Thrive. It’s challenging. Please bear with me during the changes.

Changing Web Host

By donald | Website

After receiving an over 300% increase in my web hosting service renewal costs I have opted to abandon my current service and move to a Canadian based hosting service. I started this website while I was living in the USA. This is my first renewal and it makes sense to move the site to Canada.

Plus, I go from $250 USD for three years to $125 CAD for three years. A no brainer. I’ve never “moved” a domain before and hope this process is seamless and all my current website content remains intact.

I am hoping Web Hosting Canada provides better speeds than this current host. There was always a delay in processing the web pages. I apologise in advance if there are any hiccups.

New Look to the Website

By donald | Craobh Volume Two , Duilleog Volume One , The New Druids Series , Website

donaldalliumHey, everyone. Beautiful weather outside as Spring is finally coming to Canada’s Nation Capital. If you don’t know where that is: look it up. That’s your growth and learning assignment for the day!

In celebration of rebirth and the emergence of life in all forms, I have revamped the website. Bask in its simplicity! Revel in the austere lines and beautiful colour coordination!

Also, I have opened the website up for members and reallowed comments without the need for my manual approval. Please note: I reserve the right to remove anything I find offensive. PG rating is what I want to maintain! I am praying my spam filter works this time!

Lastly, if you have read all the way down to here you will be pleased to know that Duilleog will go on sale in advance of Craobh being released on May 31, 2016. It will be a special low, low price. And, look for advanced sales opportunities for Craobh! When you pre-order, you’ll be sure to get your hands on it the moment it’s released. Craobh will be with my editor very shortly. It’s so exciting!
