It's so nice to FINALLY see spring has sprung. I can even see patches of green popping up here and there and the occasional tulip. Unfortunately the yard is pretty bare at the moment as we just had twenty-nine 40 ft ash trees removed because they were dead or dying due to the ash borer infestation. We felt is was best NOT to tempt fate so removed them before they fell down on their own and hurt something or someone. With my luck being the way it's been lately it's almost guaranteed one would have fallen directly on top of me while I was out and about and unaware! Speaking of said luck, this past winter a bunch of ice and snow built up over our newly renovated kitchen and, sure enough, a leak emerged along the main beam of the ceiling over our island. They're coming to fix it this week. What can I say...it's a gift! LOL
The e-book version of Knight Of My Dreams is now out! (The paperback version will be released in a week on May 6th.) This is a reissue of my historical short story called Mother May I, which was first published in the anthology A Mother's Way.
As for what I'm up to... I just completed a couple of Argeneau stories and even started writing the first couple of chapters of the next one. (Phew!) The first one involves Basileios, Katricia's father, and Sherry, a newcomer that has unknowingly been around immortals her entire life. The other is Bricker's story. Yes, I did say Bricker will be getting a story and it will likely come out after Basil's.
And now I'm working on the next two historicals... It's kind of nice being wicked busy because the story ideas are flowing. The only challenge now is trying to get back into the medieval mindset, which is no small feat after writing a couple of Argeneaus! Terri suggested we start speaking Old English around the office, which I thought was a great idea however I haven't heard an "Aye" or "Nay" from her yet! I guess she was just jesting...All I can say to that is :-P !
In the meantime I'm doing what writers do best, reading A LOT and surprise surprise, most of them are medievals.
So in honor of the medieval lying dormant in all of us, which is just waiting to burst through our modern minds, I shall sign off in a very med-EVIL way.
Thou puking ill-breeding ticklebrain! I hope ye ha'e a lousy spring!
Translation: I hope you all have a lovely spring ! <WG>
My yard! I think the only thing missing are the tumbleweeds blowing across it!
