Here at last! The award winning e-book is now available in PRINT!
The SVES -Shellharbour Village Exhibition Space, venue for the book launch.
Because the novel is a new take on the Wilhelm Tell legend, and my hero travels back to 1307 AD, I thought I should dress for the medieval era. So I made this costume and felt way too comfortable in it. I wondered if I'd actually been in the 13th and 14th centuries before.
Medieval music in the background, and the twenty-five minute, on location, photo display at the book launch made it possible for the reader to walk in my fictional Stefan Gessler's footsteps as he attempts to prevent the Legend of Wilhelm Tell from happening.
Birthplace and home of my Stefan in The Unhewn Stone, and Wilhelm Tell, Switzerland's national hero of liberty. The chapel marks the site of Will Tell's house.
This lovely old guesthouse in Bürglen, built in 1578, inspired the fictional 'Gessler Inn' owned by my Stefan's parents in The Unhewn Stone.
The Wilhelm Tell monument marks the spot where Tell shot the apple off his son's head.
This chapel is on the rock Tell jumped onto when he escaped from Governor Gessler's boat on Lake Luzern
Hohle Gasse - The Hollow Way
the narrow path where, legend has it, Tell ambushed and killed the tyrant governor. The chapel marks the spot.
Weeks of hard work and promotion went into this event, but it was well worth it to be surrounded by so many smiling people and well wishers.
We danced to the medieval music and ate authentic Swiss cookies and meringues.
Now my book is a tangible reality, thanks to MuseItUp Publishing.
