Good morning/afternoon/day, whatever you like! There’s good news and bad news today. The good news is that we’re here with another Beautiful People post hosted by the wonderful Cait and Sky! The bad news is that this is going to be the last Beautiful People post for the foreseeable future.

WIP—The Blade of the Dragon Trilogy

I mentioned briefly at the start of the year that I had started rewriting Jihi and then had stopped after about a thousand words. It was just dry and uninspired, and despite my earlier enthusiasm over the replotting and outlining I’d done, I just wasn’t feeling any passion for this novel at all. Continue reading
