Spring/ Summer colds
As you could probably guess by the title of this post I am currently fight a nasty spring/summer cold. I caught the wretched thing on the 24th of May, just before I was supposed to go to the other side of Vancouver Island to watch a cousin's daughter dance. Normally that wouldn't be a problem, but I caught it from my father who was also going to the performance and my mother can't drive. Neither my father nor I was in any shape to drive a car so we ended up missing the performance. I am not the happiest person over that. To make matters worse the shop where I buy my favourite brand of Crochet Cotton closed down that same week. I spent more time running to the shop to pick up various colours before the doors closed for good. The Annoying part is, it's the only shop in the Mid-Island region that sold the brand in question. As you can tell, the last couple of weeks of May were not the best for me.
On the upside, I had plenty of time to do some fiddly minor edits to L' Enfant de La Lune: Dark Witch of the Moors over the past couple of weeks. That's the one I'm trying to place with a Literary Agent right now. The fun part will be editing the second book, the horror/thriller/mystery aspects of the first book get tossed out the window as La Lune and her cohorts switch over to the Adlamar Spiral (Feline mentions it in book 2 of the Moon Child Memoirs) and start interfering in a space-based culture there for fun--sort of. They are ultimately trying to help Sapphire and locate the original homeworld of the Ellfaers, but who says they can't have a bit of fun with the Extra-terrestrial locals while they're at it? The third book also involves that galaxy, but the reasons for interfering are a bit more personal and connect back to book one. There is always method to my literary madness.
In case anyone is wondering, the Adlamar Spiral is loosely based on the first galaxy I ever saw with binoculars, and no it is not Andromeda. I have a love of the Northern sky, and galaxy M81 in particular. Look for the Northern Star and somewhere up there is where I set the galaxy I invented for the Parapsychologists who torment Feline and Sapphire. Speaking of which, the two books I'm writing right now are set there, one is the second book in Sapphire's series, and the other follows the lead female character from the second of the Dark Witch of the Moors' books as she gets drawn into something she doesn't understand through a bargain she is tricked into making with La Lune and Rabbit.
