Celebrating 'The Swan's Road' with Blank Spaces Contributor, Garth Pettersen

by - Wednesday, October 18, 2017

We want to take a special moment to congratulate Garth Pettersen on the upcoming release of his historical novel, The Swan's Road!

The Swan's Road by Garth Pettersen
Garth has been part of the Blank Spaces family since our March 2017 issue when his story, Smoke and Pathos, won the Write Prompt Challenge. We featured another piece of his short fiction in the June issue (When Drew Met Maddy Through a Curtain and Told Her About His Horse, Buck). Both stories are included as part of our recently published anthology, Just Words Volume 1.

Garth's newest accomplishment comes from Tirgearr Publishing and is set for release on November 15, 2017. 

From the Tirgearr website:

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?

Pre-order for your Kindle on Amazon for just $0.99 ($1.23 CDN) until the launch.
