I was so excited to read the review that author and translator, Olga Núñez Miret wrote for Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak that I had to share it. I’ve sent the limo above to pick up Olga and some other guests.
In her review , Olga mentions that Dead of Winter feels like it might, in part, be a coming of age story for Emlyn. “Coming of age” has always been an engaging concept to me. Personally, I don’t think it’s limited to the very young.
Teaganizations of Doors
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Dan Antion is the new host of this weekly excursion. Now to the Teaganizations of doors for Thursday Doors. I thought it would be fun to send a limousine for Olga’s characters. Of course the vehicle has Doors!
Among her many wonderful books, Olga has one that, to me, is a different sort of coming of age story — You’re Never Too Old to Be a Prom Queen. After all, we’re never too old to make a dream come true, or to inspire one another. During such a difficult time, this uplifting story is just the thing. Every prom queen deserves to be transported in a limousine. (Winks!)
Naturally Lucy and Twiggy had to have a ride in it when they heard I’d be headed to Austin to visit their “Boss.”
That’s right, today I’m visiting with the inimitable John W. Howell — and Lucy and Twiggy! So now I’ve switched the limo for a 1956 Oldsmobile in honor of Eternal Road: The final stop. I love the two-tone paint and interior in this car. That’s suitable because this book touches several genres — giving it more than one tone, so to speak.

Winter Is Here
As you already know, Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak is here. I’ve made great progress on “Journey 2, Penllyn.” It will definitely be ready for February. It will be a good deal longer than the very short first journey, but still only novelette length.
Thanks for opening the virtual door to these books. I hope you’ll take a moment to leave a comment. As I did back when I wrote motivational posts, I’m wishing you a thriving Thursday — and hugs on the wing!
Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak
With Dead of Winter, I call the installments Journeys, because the characters travel across the complex world I built, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. These journeys will publish approximately monthly. Length will range from 30 to 60 pages, or so.
