The Next Saga Book Arrives in April (& how to get there first…)

Soon there will be seven novels in The Circle of Ceridwen Saga.

The Next Saga book arrives in just a few weeks. It will, I promise, surprise you; and if my wonderful group of First Readers can be believed, also utterly delight you. If you would like to be absolutely FIRST to see the cover, know the contents, and celebrate with us, I invite you to join the Saga Discussion and Idea Group on Facebook. This is the Saga’s official Fan Group, with exclusive content, access, and very special features…like updates on the creation of the 9th century-style Norse gown I will be wearing at my two day appearance at the Maryland Renaissance Festival, September 15 & 16.

Octavia on Gotland

This New Saga novel will take you far deeper into the lives of your favourite characters. Wherever you are in your Saga journey, you will make new connections and gain insights to enrich your pleasure and understanding of the Saga Folk.

The novel will have a simultaneous worldwide release for Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo; in Print at Amazon and B&N and brick-and-mortar bookstores – and as an audiobook. London actress Nano Nagle – the Voice of the Saga – nominated for a 2018 Audie Award, Best Female Narrator for Book Six, Silver Hammer, Golden Cross, is hard at work turning this new Saga story into another thrilling performance.

This is going to be a very exciting ride. Thank you for staying at my side.

    Is there another book to come in the Circle if Ceridwen Saga and when? I imagine you want to complete the story of Ceric!

  • Mary Moore January 27, 2022, 5:14 pm

    I am new to this saga and had joined the Facebook Saga club. However, I prefer to read the old fashion way by having the book of paper sitting in my hands, so I left the club. I will be purchasing the entire series in hardcover as my budget allows as I am thoroughly intrigued. Thanks for the many hours of reading I am going to get to have.

  • KELLIS BOREK January 24, 2021, 7:41 pm

    I loved all of your books and cannot wait for the next one this April. I miss my daily connection to the characters.

    After flying through Tindr and being so upset at finishing it; as it was such a beautiful & spiritual story of such an amazing character, I began Sidroc The Dane. Sidroc was another character I immediately knew was special and his story explained why. I was SO glad his mother got to see him before he left for Angleland, even if from a distance. That was a wonderful touch to the story. So was meeting the old sage who told him about “bright hair”. I am so happy to have found this series! I was again forlorn after finishing Sidroc’s story because there was so much I wanted to know. I was going to send a note BEGGING you to write another book! LOL Now I see my prayers have been answered!!! Thank you, Octavia!!!!

    I have a lot of books in my life, but nothing that transferred me into the world of Sidroc and Ceridwen. I have read all your books and can’t wait for Book 7. In these times with the Corona Virus dominating this world of ours to be able to escape into their world has been absolutely thrilling. Thank you from my heart. You are truly a gifted and talented Lady.

  • Cheryl Foster Brusuelas July 30, 2020, 4:41 pm

    I’ve read and own all of the books up thru Book 7 – Sidroc the Dane. I thought there was another one pending. Is there?

    thank you!

  • pkv game April 20, 2020, 2:36 am

    I get completely transported when I read these books. I love them and can hardly wait for the next saga.I have read all 6 books twice, back to back. I have never done that before!

  • Casiobet April 13, 2020, 12:42 pm

    Wonderful book, thankyou so much

  • Situsdominoqq99 September 7, 2019, 5:20 pm

    And i’m glad reading your article. But wanna remark on few
    general things, The website style is great, the articles is really great
    : D. Good job, cheers

  • Kathy Nicholson May 22, 2019, 1:27 am

    Did I miss something? I keep looking for book 7. Love this series. So easy to read and on my fourth or fifth time reading them, I find somehing new every time. Has book 7 been published?

    • Sandra Wray July 26, 2019, 2:03 pm

      Greeting Octavia,

      I haven’t corresponded with you in awhile. As Kathy Nicholson, I too am wondering when your next book will be ready. I just finished Sidroc and loved knowing all his back story before meeting Ceridwen. Of course, I completed all of the Circle of Ceridwen Saga books with great joy. Your writing is wonderful and I’m anxious to hear of your new book continuing the Ceridwen Saga. Please let me hear from you.

      Best regarding from sunny, warm California,

      Sandy Wray

    I am a 69 year old semi invalid who has read / listened to your series twice so far. I am looking very much forward to the next book. I love historical fiction and have also read several other authors in the genre, including D.G. I am not a member of Facebook and don’t really plan to get involved with Facebook. There are a few of us old fossils left that simply don’t want to invest the time or energy. I miss a few special offerings for this reason, but appreciate the websites that usually fill in.

    I will be pre-ordering the next book though, of course!

  • Helle White March 19, 2019, 4:54 pm

    After reading the last book about Sidrock as a child and young man, I read all the books again. I love all the books so much and this last book gave me so much more insight to the characters , especially Sidrock. I am myself a fullblooded Dane and proud of it.

  • Terra Nedik November 11, 2018, 1:54 am

    Is Book 7 still pending release? Did I miss something? I am on my 2nd trip thru the series, Books 1-6, and am anxious to see what is next for these beloved characters. I love historical fiction and you have a research flair similar to another historical fiction author I have adored for 20+ years. You both are detailed in your writing especially where day to day life of a time period are concerned! Very in depth and makes for a more interesting read! No bodice ripping here 😉 Thank You, Miss Octavia!- Terra

  • Karen July 27, 2018, 10:57 pm

    I have just finished reading Sidroc the Dane. I was absolutely thrilled with his life & will be re-reading the rest of the saga. I get so caught up in the story that not much else gets done around the house. Lol. Looking forward to reading more of your books.

  • Suzanne June 19, 2018, 9:50 pm

    Hi. Thank you so much for choosing this avenue of entertainment. Many people write books; some, like you, are storytellers. I just know how the characters clamored around in your head until you finally put pen to paper. Or, fingers to keyboard!

    I have long been an armchair historian. My favorite period is before the Tudors. You have opened a new avenue for me.

    Here’s my question: Could you, or your readers, recommend books involving the Saxon times? I know about Bernard Cornwell (?) but he has so many, it would be too costly for me.

    Truly, your books bring much joy to my life, and for many, many others. Thank you.

    • Octavia Randolph June 20, 2018, 12:42 am

      Thank you, Suzanne! There are not many writers focusing on the Anglo-Saxon period, as Mr Cornwell and I do, but members of the Facebook Saga Group (my fan group) are developing a list of recommended books to read as they await my next Saga book. It is growing to be quite an extensive list and I daresay you shall find books to suit! And as they all love the Saga, you can feel confident you share common taste in quality.

      They are great group of dedicated readers…and they see and know everything first. I’m back on my beloved Gotland now, and posting special videos & pictures just for Group members. We welcome you.

    • Patti DeLang July 5, 2018, 6:11 pm

      She is Irish, not Saxon, but Peter Tremayne wrote many Sister Fidelma mysteries set in the 7th century.
      There is a Young Adult author with two books set in the time of Alfred…I am cudgelling my brain for titles, one is something to do with travelling, the other title is about a sword. Aargh! I’ve seen at least one of them in the last year, but tho’ I recognise them when I see them……! Sorry, I’ll try to dig out the info.

  • Kathleen Flower March 22, 2018, 8:15 am

    I’m in Australia and would love to get my hands on the next book in the saga. Will it be available to get over here or will I need to order from the UK
    Love your books

  • Theresa MacKinnon March 21, 2018, 7:10 pm

    I am so happy to hear there is a #7. I loved your books. They are ones you can re-read over and over again. Thanks for the excellent experience of enjoying your novels.

  • Kathleen F Campbell March 20, 2018, 2:22 pm

    I get completely transported when I read these books. I love them and can hardly wait for the next saga.I have read all 6 books twice, back to back. I have never done that before!

  • Jere Smith March 18, 2018, 9:33 pm

    I would like to be a first reader – if you ever have a need.

  • Trixie Fischer March 18, 2018, 8:39 pm

    I have looked back so many times on this website to make sure I didn’t miss the next book in the Ceridwen series. Do you know that I read the first 4 books like 5 times? I have had such a book hangover from this series. It gave me daydreams and night dreams and pleasant thoughts throughout many of my days, since the beginning of my reading of it. I’m thrilled about this. I am looking forward to being surprised and exhilarated and gratified, and deeply immersed in this imaginary past world. Thank you for the continuation of this kick-a*s series.

  • Lona Boudreaux March 18, 2018, 8:26 pm

    I’m excited to know the book is almost out. Thank you, Octavia, for sharing your gift of writing and imagination with us. Lona

  • Ady Boyd March 18, 2018, 7:19 pm

  • Viv Morgan March 18, 2018, 6:43 pm

    What will be the name of book ?

  • Crystal Frantz March 18, 2018, 5:51 pm

    Oh how excited I am! When I finished book six I was left hanging – will Sudric make it home – will he tell Ceridwen about his dalliance while away – will they get to celebrate baby number three – will they live long, loving each other? And so on. I am so in love with th characters of The Circle of Ceridwen!

    You tell their stories so well – I feel I could talk to them and that I’m right there. Bless you and thank you for your work.


    • Bones October 1, 2020, 1:57 am

      Dalliance? Sidroc would never cheat on his Shield Maiden. He married Aelfwyn after Yrling was killed both as a noble gesture and to protect her and Four Stones. Sidroc wasn’t as driven by the conquest of women as the others were, and that was one of the strengths of his character. Yes, he accepted the bodies offered to him from the starving women when Four Stones was won and being established as their home, but his heart (and soul) belonged to Ceridwen from the day their eyes met. Did I miss something?!?!

  • Janine Eitniear March 18, 2018, 4:46 pm

  • Roxann S. Bane March 18, 2018, 4:12 pm

  • Marlene March 18, 2018, 4:03 pm
