The Courting of Eileen

The Courting of Eileen (2018) Post 371

The Courting of Eileen is my first  published title for 2018. This is a story in the Fairy in the Bed series, and is an example of something I wrote because I wanted to know what happened. 
At the end of Floribunda and the Best Men, Hamish McTavish, one of the men of the title, who had a spare brother, struck a handshake deal with Kieran Shamrock, who had a spare sister...  So, the big brothers agreed Sean and Eileen were ideally suited to one another, but what do Sean and Eileen think? The Courting of Eileen is about what happened when they met. Being a sensible pair, they decided not to turn down an idea just because it came from their brothers... but that didn't mean they were going to start any nonsense with horseshoes and charms. 
I particularly love the cover of this one. I suggested a cow, because Eileen, being a leprechaun colleen, keeps cows. If you look to Sean's left, you can see I got one!

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
