Companion Novel Update
I’m finally past the 40,000 word midpoint of the DOWRY OF BLOOD companion novel, which I hope to be able to formally announce details about in early 2023. Last week unlocked my villain’s tragic backstory in a scene that is both tender and twisted and I’m pretty much cackling with wicked writer glee about it. I can’t wait for you to meet these characters and be drawn into their autumnal world of poetry and passion. In the meanwhile, enjoy this teaser quote from a pivotal scene.
Everything I’ve Been Loving Lately
Besides all the pumpkin flavors coming onto the scene and the slight chill in the Boston air, I’ve been enjoying tuning into weekly episodes of House of The Dragon. I petered out on Game Of Thrones after season one, it was just too brutal for me, but I’m enjoying this spin-off so far. I’m loving the front-row seat to all the drama, and it’s helping me pass the time while I sign tip-in sheets. A terrible dynasty of magical royals teetering on knife’s edge between madness and greatness? Yes please.
That’s all I have for you this week, dear reader! Be safe and well until we two meet again.
