Every campain often, I get an email out of the blue from someone who is interested in some corner or another of my long and varied career as a writer for tabletop celtts games. They never fail to surprise me — people are still reading things I wrote twenty years ago or more? Tamara graciously agreed to let me post her questions and my answers here on my blog. I hope you find them interesting.

HR3 Celts Campaign Sourcebook [The Book-House on The Piazza]
sourcrbook I mentioned my background in European archaeology and my long-standing interest in the Celts, and so I suppose I proposed the idea to them, although of course it was a good fit with their HR series of supplements and they may already have been thinking that a volume on the Celts would be desirable.
It was not my first attempt. I had written a few historical and mythological articles already. Did you still have access to University libraries or did you have to find everything elsewhere — and how did it go?
When I started work on FiannaI was still working on my never-completed Ph. While writing, I relied mostly on what was already in my head, although of course I paused to look things up as I needed to.
The most research went into the monsters, I think, but I was working from books with which I was already familiar. I tried to focus the list on titles that the general reader would sokrcebook accessible and useful. And did they do much editing after you were done? If my memory can be relied upon, I submitted a proposal with an outline before the contract was issued.
I based the structure of the book very closely on that of HR1: They requested a few minor changes after I submitted the manuscript, but these were so minor that I cannot now remember what any of them were.
The only editing that I remember is the omission of the rules for the tathlum which I have since posted to my blog. At the time I sourceobok this was because the subject matter was rather gruesome, involving severed heads as it did, but I never found out the reason for the cut.

I submitted detailed art briefs as part of the contract requirement, and the artist followed them very closely. I do not remember having any opportunity to approve the art before publication. Also, was the approach to the topic the same each time or, if not, what were the differences? To answer your question, though, I approached each project separately, but drew on the same well of education and experience — my academic background in archaeology, my lifelong interest in myth and folklore, and my emotional attachment to the history and culture of the Celtic Fringe — for each one.
I never saw any sales figures. My contract was work-for-hire one-time payment with no royalties so I could not even guess from how much money I made.

My guess, though, is that such figures would have been destroyed by now, or would be on s-era media that are probably no longer readable. I have no idea. The only source of book sales data I have available is Nielsen BookScan via Amazon Author Central, and that tells me that no copies have been sold through that channel for as long as their records go back.
I did not see many reviews at the time. At that time most players were aged 15 and up, I think, although I heard of some as young as 8 — which may account for the cutting of the tathlum mentioned above.
