The Enchanted Swans is Submitted!

Cush42Woohoo! I did it, I did it! I submitted another novel to my publisher for consideration!


The Enchanted Swans came to a final draft (well, before editors get to it!) of 98,187 words. I didn’t think it was going to end up more than 80K, but I was so wrong.


Set in pre-Christian Ireland, the novel is closely based on the Irish legend The Children of Lir.


In pre-Celtic Ireland, Fionnuala was a fairy princess, born to a life of luxury. She knew her duty and loved her family. But she missed her mother, who died in childbirth when Fionnuala was but ten years old.

All she had was stolen from her, ripped away in a torrent of envy and magic.

Now she must care for her three brothers while learning to live under this evil curse. Would she find a way to break the spell, or would they remain swans, tethered to three places for nine hundred years?




If all goes well and my publisher likes it, it might be out some time in the summer of 2017. For now I wait, holding my breath and crossing my fingers for several months until I’m told. It might get a bit uncomfortable, but that’s the writer’s life!


Now I get to concentrate on my other WIP, Call of the Morrigu, which is also in an almost-final state. And I can start on Misfortune of Vision, the fourth book in The Druid’s Brooch series, set in 12th century Ireland. Yay for Shiny New Projects!



I write historical fantasy novels, mostly set in Ireland, and a contemporary romance based on my parents’ 30-year search for true love. Don’t miss information on Celtic myth and history, as well as practical travel planning tips, and hidden places, in my travel books.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
