Three Legs of the Cauldron

Story Overview

For the ancient Celts, the cauldron of society was supported by the three legs of truth, honor and duty. If any of them collapsed, the cauldron would lose all that it held.

Fergus, the aging chief of his clan in late 6th century Ireland, has three sons: the manipulative Ciaran, the bold warrior Cathal, and the impetuous Connaire. When Ciaran tries to separate Cathal from his beloved woman-warrior Aislinn, Cathal turns to Connaire for help in thwarting Ciarin?s plan, while not betraying any of the three foundations of their society, the three legs of the cauldron. It is an epic tale that spans the Irish Sea and encompasses the turbulent times in ancient Dal Riata, the kingdom that had holdings in the north of Ireland and the rugged western coast of Scotland. Saint Columba as well as Conall and Aeden, two kings of Dal Riata in that era, are only three of the historical figures who play strong roles in Three Legs of the Cauldron.

Travel back in time to an era when truth was more important than fame, when honor outranked money and when duty mattered more than life itself.

  1. Dear R. L. Cherry:

    My condolences that the people at Kindle Scout were not smart enough to pick up THREE LEGS OF THE CAULDRON. It is a mystery to me how they make their selections, but one thing is clear. They don’t use voters to choose the books?They use that process to corral a passel of favorably inclined readers to give ARCs to, so as to hopefully get a bunch of 4- and 5-star reviews before the book is released. If you offer your book for a day or three free, and inform Amazon that it’s out only once the free day(s) is(/are) in effect, you can get those copies into the hands of those same voters any way, and hopefully pick up those reviews. That way you can still benefit by the KS system though you weren’t offered a deal. Take heart. THREE LEGS OF THE CAULDRON will do well.

  2. My condolences that the people at the Kindle Scout program were not sharp enough to pick up THREE LEGS OF THE CAULDRON. I voted for it. I’m sure its future is bright. The KS program is a mystery to me as to how they pick books, but the one thing that I understand is that they use the votes NOT to select winners, but to corral a passel of favorably inclined readers whom they can give ARCs to in advance, hopefully to get lots of 4- and 5-star reviews before the publishing date. If you offer your book for free for a day or three, and inform Amazon that it’s out only once the free day(s) has(/have) started, then your voters can still get their free book, and hopefully, you can still get your positive reviews.

    • Thanks for your vote and kind words. If I could figure a way to give a copy to everyone who voted for me, I would. I will send you one when I put it out on Kindle.
