Publishing in August 2014 on Roundfire Books (imprint of John Hunt Publishing Ltd), Welcome to Camelot, by Tony Cleaver.
Gwen Price works at the Camelot Hotel, Monmouthshire. She is a thoroughly modern miss - very independent; she loves her iPhone and her fashion wear, she flirts outrageously, and she will cheat, lie and steal to get whatever she wants. Why not?
Then one day she wakes up in the fifth century in the Court of King Arthur where there are absolutely no creature comforts, society is rigidly hierarchical and challenging social conventions risks getting her branded as a witch.
Meanwhile, Lady Gwendolyn of Camelot is warm, generous, innocent, vulnerable and totally dependent on the fifth-century supportive community that she has grown up in. She wakes up in a 21st-century world where possessions define people, personal relations are distant, and everyone is an island.
This is a story of how these two learn to cope and adjust; both girls out of their time, and how in turn they affect the very different societies they find themselves in. Welcome to Camelot!
