Summerfeste was published on January 4th 2019, making it my first book for the year.
Summerfeste takes up the story some time later when Rowan is prepared to go to desperate measures. Her childhood friend Ashwin is the main character in Summerfeste and he tries to sort out Rowan's problems while dealing with several of his own. Ash considers himself a plain and unlikely prospect for any woman, but he finds himself sought by three of them. That would be flattering is he didn't doubt their motives.
Like Thornfair, Summerfeste was born of my abiding interest in hollow hill fairies, and my fascination with good intentions gone bad. Thornfair is set in the springtime, with the hawthorns flushed with green and covered in blossom. In my mind it's a green and white book (and I'm not referring to the cover). Summerfeste is a golden brown book, with the gold of corn, the rusty shade of bracken and the brilliant yellow of gorse. This is high summer, but despite the beautiful days, the bitter results of Rowan's promise will have their way.
Book three will be called Crossover. I wonder what colours that one will bring?
