Take a look at all those titles! Every one of them is available exclusively on Amazon.com. You can either use the links in the left-hand column of this web site, or you can search for my name, ‘Sonja Danielson’, to bring up all of my titles that are available.
Each book in the Fairies of Carlow series stands alone with a glimpse at the continuing stories of previous characters. It’s almost like getting an epilogue while being immersed in the story of new characters.
The Voyage is based on actual history and tells the story of one of the notable and founding families of the East Coast of America. The Wing Family traveled around Europe before the matriarch and her sons crossed the Atlantic to settle in Plymouth Colony and eventually Sandwich, Massachusetts.
The Voyage is based on actual events and locations, and the book includes information on locations mentioned in the book and has a timeline of the events. I wanted the political climate of England and Europe easy to understand, which was difficult based on the rule of King Henry VIII, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth I.
The Voyage is easy to read and boasts several full-color illustrations made specifically for the book. The talents of the artist (not me!) show the dress and environment of the story. You have to see them!
It’s an important day for all those in the United States. Today is Thanksgiving. My new book, The Voyage, would be a wonderful read to mark this day. It tells of the trials of a man who traveled throughout Europe as he searched for religious freedom.
His family settled first in Plymouth Colony and then to Sandwich, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. This illustrated easy-to-read book is available exclusively on Amazon.com.
I’m also offering Book 3 of The Fairies of Carlow, The Commoner, at special pricing starting today. This book is a middle-grade chapter book and takes place in a fairy kingdom. The Commoner tells the story of a fairy princess who chafes under the restrictions placed upon her. She flees the palace and lives as a commoner. Will she return to her royal life?
I hope you take advantage of the special pricing, which ends on November 30, and also take a look at my newest book.
I’m celebrating this holiday week by scheduling a special pricing event for book 3 of The Fairies of Carlow!
Starting at 12:01 on Thanksgiving Day (MST), the price of the ebook of The Commoner will drop to $0.99. The price will increase gradually over the day and November 29, so jump on this special event as soon as you can!
The link to the ebook, available exclusively on Amazon.com, is in the left margin of this web site.
I hope you can take advantage of this offer! Sonja
The above quote really described my writing process. In a previous post, I wrote about being a ‘plotter’ or a ‘pantser’. I’m a ‘plotter’ and need to know the direction of my story.
That doesn’t mean I am strict or regimented in my writing. I like to see where my characters want to take me–and often they surprise me–but I can gently lead them in the direction of my plot. Otherwise, my stories tend to wander around too much.
When I write my fairy stories, you can be sure that I have pictures of Ireland on my computer and a nice cup of tea steaming at the side of my laptop.
When I write about Guinness the Therapy Dog, I like to watch him as he plays with his sister, Lucy. A lot of the time, he’s laying on the floor at my feet or resting his chin on my leg as he begs for a nice petting session.
I get inspiration from everything that’s around me. Hopefully, that flavors my writing and helps with the general mood and descriptions for you, the reader.

The Fairies of Carlow: The Outsider is Book 2 of The Fairies of Carlow series and continues the riveting and heartfelt saga of the fairies that inhabit the Kingdom of Carlow. Princess Morgen (do not use her full name!) is from the neighboring Kingdom of Meath and has been raised on stories of the failings of the Carlowian royal family. She believes the barbarian king rules a hostile land; however, her father has arranged her marriage to the royal prince as protection against the marauding Red Caps. She is horrified by the edict and cannot imagine living her life tied to a heathen such as Prince Stephen. Does she face a cold and forbidding future, or will Prince Stephen defy his reputation and provide Princess Morgen with the love and support she craves?
Special pricing is coming! On Saturday, November 16, 2019, I have arranged for a discount on my e-book of The Fairies of Carlow: The Outsider. The special pricing will be in effect for 24 hours and will increase incrementally until it returns to full price on November 18.
I hope you take advantage of this opportunity and read the story of Princess Morgen and her adventures as the intended of the crowned prince of Carlow. She finds a healthy respect for herself through her challenges, that range from the easily solved to one that is difficult to surmount. I’ll give you a hint: it involved those terrible Red Caps. I’ll write a post soon about these dastardly creatures and the havoc they wreak.
The Fairies of Carlow: The Gilding has special pricing for the ebook for the next two days only! Get your copy of the ebook at the discounted price by going to amazon.com. You can click on the link in the left margin for easier navigation.
I hope you enjoy the story of Fern, a quiet fairy who becomes a very known fairy within not only her own kingdom but all the fairy kingdoms!
If you live in the UK, I’ve arranged for a special pricing event just for you. This will be for the ebook of The Fairies of Carlow: The Gilding and will start Friday, October 18. This pricing event ends on October 21, with the lowest prices available on the first day.
Take advantage of this opportunity!
You can access the pricing on Amazon.com or by using the link for the ebook on the left margin of this web page.
If you haven’t read The Gilding, I hope you enjoy it. If you have read the story of Fern, thank you!
Don’t forget that the series continues with The Outsider and The Commoner. Each book stands on its own, but there are glimpses into the futures of the fairies from the prior books. I hope you enjoy all the books!
Plus, stay tuned for a picture book that tells the story of a family who emigrated from England to Plymouth Colony in the 1600s. Tentatively titled, The Wing Family of America: From England to the American Colonies, this book is expected to be available before Christmas.
Also, I will have the first two (or more!) picture books from the series Guinness the Therapy Dog ready for purchase in the new year. This series will show how a big Bernese Mountain Dog becomes a therapy dog and all the adventures he has! I can’t wait to share his stories with you.
