Claiming Excalibur

This week is the promo tour for Claiming Excalibur by LH Nicole, the upcoming sequel to Legendary (featured here during the Realms Faire). Claiming Excalibur's release date is set for December 16. On that day, you'll find excerpts and other fun stuff at my Facebook page.

Today you can:

I asked LH one simple question: If you had to choose one song that best captures the essence of the Legendary saga, what would it be?  Here's her answer:

Meet LH Nicole 

I am a seasoned Pastry Chef in our nation’s capital and a lifelong fairytale (Disney and Grimm) lover, believes in love at first sight, is addicted to 80’s & 90’s cartoons and anything that can capture my ADD-way-to-overactive-imagination. Joan Lowery Nixon and L.J. Smith were the first authors I became addicted to and who inspired me to steal away whenever I could to read and write. 


Legendary is a story I've had in head for years. The idea came to me during an english project about you guessed it- Arthurian legends. My teacher was against web research and allowed us to use textbooks only. I discovered different ways to spell the characters names, including Mordred. There are five spelling variations that I found, and I chose to use one that is much less known: Mordrid.

Other names I kept the same, and some I changed for the sake of the story. My reason for changing the names and/or spellings is this: my Knights of the Round Table, their enemies and allies are very different from what people are used to. I don't want to offend Arthurian purists and the "Arthurianlegend/history."

Legendary is pure fiction, straight from my imagination. I took some liberties with the different stories and incarnations. I changed the things I didn't like to the way I wanted them to be. I changed things to make them my own creation and tell you a new story. Hence Legendry’s summary "everything she thought she knew about Arthurian legends was wrong."

Love both of these covers and the imagination of the series.

LH, as a pastry chef, do you have any desire to compete on a Food Network show? I watch that channel constantly!

I'm a fan of Disney and Grimm, too. What's not to love? Good luck with your Authurian legend novel - it sounds great! :)
