New Release: Doorways to the Past are open

I’m so excited. 

Today is the day when Doorways to the Past is published. ~happy dance~

A collection of short stories and character interviews by five Ocelot Press authors – Sue Barnard, Vanessa Couchman, Nancy Jardine, Jennifer C. Wilson, and me – with a foreword by our newest Ocelot, Yvonne Marjot, Doorways to the Past takes you on a journey encompassing 2,000 years!



My own contributions are an interview with Nanthild from Love Lost in Time, and a short story linked to Dark Deceit, with the Empress Matilda (literally) walking on thin ice.
But I do love all the other stories and interviews. So many fascinating characters, and you can get a real sense of the times they (fictionally or really) inhabited.

If you're around later on this afternoon, 5pm-7pm UK time, 6pm-8pm CET, and 1pm-3pm EST, then stop by at our virtual launch event on Facebook where you can win some great prizes! Just click on this link:

Walk with us through Doorways to the Past!

Your journey begins in Roman Britain where Ruoridh discovers something that confused him at the fortress of Pinnata Castra, and where you’ll meet Gaius Salvius Liberalis, who tells us about his life as a legate.
Cross the Channel into 8th-century France, where Lady Nanthild shares glimpses into a life fraught with danger. Set foot on thin ice with the Empress Matilda in 12th-century Oxford, and discover if Judd can save Hannah from the desires of a notorious reiver in the tumultuous border lands between England and Scotland in the 15th century.
Then meet Tom at Nottingham Castle in July 1485 – an ominous time for his lord, King Richard III. Onwards, travel to beautiful Italy during the Renaissance where you meet Fra’ Roberto and Fra’ Lorenzo before you’ll jump through time into 18th-century Marseille where Francesca, a young Florentine lady disowned by her family, strives to make a living.
We remain in France where Maria’s path takes her from her home, the breathtaking island of Corsica, to the dangers of the Western Front in World War I. You’ll approach the end of your journey in the present day where John and Marie wrestle with staging a play set in Ancient Rome, and, lastly, meet a history-loving grandmother with an amazing gift.
Take a journey through time, with our collection of short stories and character interviews for readers who enjoy discovering the past, from the comfort of your home.

Doorways to the Past is available in Kind and paperback formats from Amazon! Get your copy now and step back in time...
