My series Sidonia The Sorceress is set in 17th century Germany (Holy Roman Empire). That's the Witch Burning Times. That's the Protestant vs Catholic prelude to one of the bloodiest European Wars known as The Thirty Year War. That's the time the Ottoman Empire attacked Vienna twice and Europe almost became Muslim. 

But it's a fantasy: What if witches really existed during the Burning Times?

I missed out submitting (and am looking forward to #1 coming out).

I've read scuttle about a second one?

Will there be a second one?

What will be its theme?

When do submissions open?

Hi All {waving} I'm Linda Bell Brighton.

Like so many, I've been playing at writing all my life & decided a few years back to get serious.

The 1st in my historical fantasy series, Sidonia the Sorceress, Wolgast Castle, will be coming out next month. It takes place in 1560 Germany (Holy Roman Empire) during the Witch Burning times

The 2 book of this series is written. I just have to change it to 1st person. The 3rd is partly planned & needs more research. Maybe traveling to (what us now) Poland.  :D

I have a second series, current day thriller, Sidonia as reincarnated Sandra. The 1st book is fleshing itself out.

All so much fun!
