July is here, and so is the latest issue of Dead of Winter!
NOTE: Sadly, my TDS Telecom Internet is completely out. They can’t send a tech this week. So, l am not able to be as present as l would like.
Welcome everyone. To those in the USA, I hope you enjoyed Independence Day. To our neighbors to the north, I hope it was a lovely Canada Day. (That was also my birthday, and I’m mostly glad to survive another year. That’s never my favorite day. ‘Nuf said.)
Last month the June issue of “Dead of Winter” took our travelers to a unexpected crannog. I won’t give spoilers, so I’ll just say that is also where we left Emlyn and company in “The Fluting Fell.” Today I’m glad to say that Journey 7, Revenant Pass will pick up there — and proceed to give you a rollercoaster ride of action and suspense. It’s not as long as the last one, but it’s not short on excitement.
Announcing the July Issue
Dead of Winter: Journey 7, Revenant Pass
Dead of Winter: Journey 7, Revenant Pass begins with the ancient watcher’s memory of the Library of the Society of Deae Matres — and its fall. We also get a look into the thought process of treacherous Arawn. The the story picks up where we left Emlyn and company, trapped in the Realm of the Dead.
Then some characters go missing. You’ll have to read to learn more.
An Out-Take — 3 Dead of Winter Things
As most of you know, I began writing this epic in the winter of 2010. It took more than two years for me to finish. During those years, occasionally I used my “three things” exercise. Sometimes the exercises made it into the novel, other times not. Here’s a tidbit I wrote that way which is not in the books.
Rusted chains, Coach, Silence
Snowflakes drifted lazily through the air. He hadn’t seen snow in Pergesca since he was a small boy. He stood in silence, transfixed by the wonder of the sight for a moment. Then with a jolt he realized that was a side effect of the problem. The Veil was broken. Winter had come. There was a light coat of rust on the chains, but Gregorios thought they were still sound. In his haste, he didn’t unhitch the horses from his coach, but chained the small wagon to the back of the coach. It wasn’t so large that the horses couldn’t pull both.
Wishing you an easy coast down the other side of this midweek hump. I love to hear from you, so friendly comments are encouraged. Hugs on the wing!
