The Too Smartphone

07/28/2016

 
I am not a morning person. My alarm setting is, to quote the good Captain Barbossa in Pirates of the Caribbean--a 'guideline.' It is a suggestion to stumble from my bed in 1-2 hours.
However, lately I have noted a conspiracy between my smartphone and my bladder. They have recently synchronized and now I am compelled to rise at the alarm's command. 
My solution? Since I cannot live without my bladder, then the smartphone--who obviously has got too smart, has to go.

Here's a selection of 5-Star Reviews for Conall: The Place of Blood by Author David H. Millar.
From the first chapter in the book I was gripped. It tells the story of a simple blacksmith's son whose parents and sisters were brutally murdered. Conall starts off on a journey of vengeance with a band of young followers, most not much older than children. The story leads the reader through his growth as a man, a warrior and the leader of his army. The narrative used is authentic, the battle scenes satisfyingly vivid, and the antics of the sidhe will both terrify and delight you. If you like Games of Thrones - you will love Conall.

“I do not give out 5-star ratings lightly, or often. In my opinion, Conall: Rinn-Iru by David H. Millar has earned 5 stars. With detailed, graphic descriptions of battles, Mr. Millar paints a vivid picture of the life-and-death struggles faced by warriors of ancient times. Can Conall, with the help of his friends, find those that he has sworn to take vengeance upon? I anxiously await the next volume in this series of books.”

Millar's novel is extremely well-written and entertaining. As my first real forte into historical fiction, I was pleasantly surprised by just how enjoyable a book Conall: Rinn-Iru turned out to be. Not only is the story line an intriguing glimpse into another time period, but it is also jam packed full of fascinating three-dimensional characters who are engaged in a interesting plot line… Conall: Rinn-Iru is quite a distinguished novel. I look forward to reading more by Millar.”

“A very well researched novel that brings you back to 415 BC in ancient Ireland and follows an orphaned young man on an epic page turning quest for revenge. Just think of an ancient Batman that Batman would run from. The descriptions of armor, weaponry and battle tactics were so thorough that I could almost hear the battle cries and I loved the bit of folklore blended in.”

After getting past the difficult Gaelic names and delving into the story it was a non-stop page turner. David Millar weaves a story of legend, real history and unique characters that make it one of the best I've read in a while. I can't wait for the next book.”

So Author David H. Millar, what is the progress on the third novel in the Conall Celtic historical fiction series?Thanks for asking! Now that Conall: The Place of Blood and Conall II: The Raven's Flight are released on Amazon and Amazon Kindle, I can turn my focus to finishing the third book in the series - Conall III: The Sisters-Na Deirfiúracha.  
The manuscript for book three is about 80% complete and I am aiming for an end-June for a completed manuscript. Then it's editing, beta-reading, book cover and interior design and map illustrations. My target release date is November 2016.
The third book focuses on the women that surround Conall. Women like the demi-goddess and Sidhe - Mongfhionn , Conall's queen Mórrígan known as the Dark Huntress, Mòrag the voluptuous battle princess of the Ravens and Kartimandu, queen of the Aos na h-Àirde. There is no let up in the action, the plotting, and the intrigues of the Celts.
