THE SWAN'S ROAD

Delighted to introduce a fellow Tirgearr Publishing author to my blog today as he celebrates the launch of his debut novel, The Swan's Road. 




Garth Pettersen is a Canadian writer whose stories have appeared in journals and magazines such as The Spadina Literary Review and The Opening Line Literary 'Zine, and in a number of anthologies. He recently received an honourable mention in The Short Story America 2017 Competition and was one of two runners-up in the Wundor Editions (UK) Short Fiction Prize. The Swan's Road is his first novel. 


The Swan's Road is available now to buy on Amazon and other sites: 
Book Blurb
In the eleventh century, Cnute, the Viking king of Engla-lond and Scandinavia, sails with his son, Harald, and his shield brothers to Rome. Thrown off course by a storm, they follow the route up the Rhine. When Harald hangs back to assist Selia, a beautiful Frisian woman, his path turns perilous. Newfound enemies, retainers of Robert the Devil, Duke of Normandy, pursue them. Harald, Selia, and their companions fail to rendezvous with King Cnute, and are forced to travel cross-country on horseback. If Duke Robert's plan to assassinate Cnute succeeds, an invasion of Engla-lond will follow. Can Harald and Selia reach Rome in time to warn the King?
