Hot, humid, cloudy
It’s so humid that it’s not raining, but the sky is dripping. Yes, I know that sounds strange, but it’s as though the Cosmic Faucet leaks.
You want to read a really wonderful story? Here’s B.K. Birch’s “Strange Fruit”, up on Wildchild:
It’s a beautiful and powerful piece.
Also, Colin Galbraith is the Featured Diarist interviewed in today’s entry for The Thirteen Traveling Journals project, and Eileen contributed an entry yesterday. Fronds of Thought is on its way to Colin, and Eileen’s already working on Tranquility Taverna.
I already heard from the new artist for Angel Hunt, which is a good sign. Let’s hope there’s less unnecessary drama this time around.
I have one more revision to do on Elusive Prayers, and then, off it goes. I’m pleased with it. It stands on its own, it ties in well to Widow’s Chamber both directly and with a couple of mentions that will make regular subscribers smile while not making people who only purchase EP feel left out. And it opens up some new possibilities for several characters without leaving anyone hanging. I need to tighten it a bit, smooth out some rough spots where there were gaps in logic (considering a completely different villain revealed himself 20 pages from the end, I have to go back and make sure it’s set up properly), and there we are.
Then, of course, we have to set the marketing campaign for that while I get to work on Lighthouse Lady.
Not to mention I have to pack today and write about six episodes of the various serials to get where I need to be before the trip.
So, I’d better get to work.
