Happy hump day everybody. June has flown by for me. I guess that’s just as well, because if it had lingered, it would have been burned to a crisp. I know I’m not the only one talking about the heat, and I do know that I’m fortunate, but it’s still stinkin’ hot!
Thinking of anything to do with winter is a way to combat the heat. Right now, I’m too psyched to care. Those of you who have been reading “Dead of Winter” from the beginning know that we’ve been going with these novelettes for six months now. I’m so grateful that you’ve been on these Journeys with me. Pat over at e-Quips blog had great timing. Here’s her marvelous review that covers all six of the existing novelettes! Don’t worry — no spoilers. Here’s to you, Pat. Cheers!
Anita Dawes has also been part of the journeys from the beginning. Here’s her lovely review of Journey 6, The Fluting Fell at “Books and Bonsai.” Here’s to Jaye and Anita. Salut!
Also, Priscilla Bettis and D.L. Finn also did fabulous reviews at Amazon. Here’s to you both, Denise and Priscilla. Skoal! If I keep crowing, I’ll turn into some kind of female rooster. No such thing? That’s why I write fantasy.
Journey 7, Revenant Pass
Emlyn’s world doesn’t get any less strange as the travelers continue into the Revenant Pass. This cover brings in several elements that have been hinted at in previous Journeys. Emlyn stands in the foreground of massive ruins — I won’t spoil things by saying what used to be there. Her developing abilities are put to the test. Zasha is transfixed by the vision ahead of her — a fabled trio, the Three, which the mysterious watcher has mentioned. However, the full impact of that won’t hit her until Journey 8: The Lost Library.
In Other News
The steampunk riverboat that has been my blog serial for two years concludes this weekend. It’s a triple-length episode, so be ready to put your feet up and enjoy the ride. The Delta Pearl finally comes back into dock.
Wishing everyone an easy coast down the other side of this midweek hump. Hugs on the wing!
