Misfortune of Time – first draft DONE!

I pushed hard this weekend and got my first draft of Misfortune of Time DONE!


Misfortune of Time is #6 in The Druid’s Brooch Series. Books #1-3 are published, and #4 is due out January 2018. Book #5 is probably due out in April 2018. Once I’ve done editing and tightening #6, I shall submit it to my publisher for consideration. It will likely be 2018 before that happens, though. The editing of the book takes longer than the writing, for me!


So, who wants to guess what the final word count was? My last two novels clocked in at 80.555 and 84,343. The person who comes closest without going over wins! Winner gets a virtual hug đŸ˜€


Blurb for Misfortune of Time:


In 11th century Ireland, Étaín must hide her pagan magic from her pious Christian husband. She wants to escape his cruelty, but must stay to protect their grandson from his heavy hand. Over many lifetimes, she has learned how to endure the pain.

When his beatings get too much, though, she has little choice but to escape in the night with little more than the clothing on her back.

Luckily, this is not the first lifetime she’s fled. Will it be enough to let her survive?



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.
