Celtic Folktales from Wales was my first attempt at self-publishing and to my surprise and delight it got great reviews and quickly became an Amazon kindle #1 bestselling book. Click on the book cover image on the left if you are curious.
I have been telling these stories for many years and I am really chuffed that people liked what I wrote. Since then I’ve wanted to do so something meatier and I finally looked the big hairy beast of story that lies behind Pig Boy in the eyes and got to it. The story is much bigger than your average folktale, of course. Howerver, it still has the intimate connection with landscape that the folktales have as well as the magic, transformation and mystery.
