August: A Radio Interview
and ITunes book giveaway:
Irish Radio Canada
On Sunday, August 5th,
I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Austin Comerton on Irish Radio Canada about the history and mystery, the political and the personal, and how that’s all wound together in CELTIC KNOT.
To celebrate D’Arcy McGee, Austin launched the novel’s first ebook giveaway -- it’s going on right now!
To hear the interview, please tune in via this website’s MEDIA page.
