Helen Scott Taylor - Upcoming Guest Post and Giveaway

There will also be a fabulous giveaway of signed copies of both The Magic Knot and The Phoenix Charm to one luck commenter. Helen will be by to answer questions for you so check out her website and the book trailer and drop on by.

Synopsis for The Phoenix Charm

Cordelia has sworn she'll abstain from looking into Michael's future--particularly when the image in the gilded smoke of her divination mirror shows him half naked. Yet she can't resist watching the sexy rascal slowly running his hand down his ribs, over his abdomen, flicking open the button on his jeans with a little flourish like a magician performing a trick.


Respectable wise woman Cordelia restrains her secret water nymph sensuality with the Celtic symbols painted on her skin. But Michael's powerful fairy glamour leaves her breathless, off balance, struggling for control. When Gwyn ap Nudd, the Welsh King of the Underworld, steals away Michael's infant nephew, Cordelia must work with him to save the child. But how can she trust her instincts with Michael tempting her to explore the hidden elemental depths of her nature and insisting that she believe in the power of...The Phoenix Charm.

  1. Many thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    My question is: Who conceptualises the covers for your book? Is it done in conjunction with the publisher?

    Many thanks.

  2. Hi Ruby,

    My publisher send out a list of questions that cover things like setting and the appearence of the main characters. They also ask for an excerpt on which the cover art could be based. But the design is ultimately down to the publisher and the author has to be a big name before she/he had a right of veto.



For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
