Query Finals

Wish I could take the credit for this, but a friend came to my rescue. I think I am going to quit worrying about this now and get back to writing. Dear Perfect Agent, Gentyl thinks this is no way to become an elite Horse Guard. Assigned to watch a senile wizard botch spells and […]

Back To Work

Well, even for all the screwing around with Evil Editor’s party, I got a decent amount done on Paladin. The prologue has now been converted to a full chapter. Chapter one is now chapter two. It has the edit done from the workshop and is in good shape, I hope. I’m always a little nervous […]

Martha and Tilley at EE’s Party-Part 2

Dying Embers

Today was an interesting day. Work is still stressing me, but what do you do? I like to eat and not live in a box. At lunch I started thinking about a scene in Paladin. Gen has been poisoned by an assassin’s blade. Her aunt pulls some strings and gets some powerful healers to help […]
