Taken in the hay loft of a 163 year-old barn. Mid-day sunlight light reflected off the red tin roof and then under the eave and into the loft. It struck the glass in two unmounted doors and painted the lof tin an off kaleidoscope of colors. I will be posting a feature in an upcoming blog about my amazing visit to this place.
While I've included a photo from one of my latest expeditions, this post is actually about writing.
For those of you who might have read or are reading my CHRONICLES OF FU XI series, I've made a major change in the series. The fourth, and final, installment in my epic fantasy series is becoming too long. I am forced to break it into two books.
HOWEVER, it will still be a four-book series. Instead of making it five books, I am creating a stand-alone companion book similar to what I did with THE GOLDEN PRINCESS. This will be a 70k-ish, self-contained story about the Goddess Nuwa's backstory with some unique insights into Fu Xi. I do not have a working title yet. If one read the CHRONICLES OF FU XI series, this new book would not be necessary to understand the main novels, but would add richness and depth to several characters, much as THE GOLDEN PRINCESS did. This new novel will be a mythological fantasy.
I am also busy working on my newest photography book (as you can see above). In the next few weeks I will post an expanding blog episode where I detail one of the most interesting encounters I've had on the road yet, and give more details about the image above.
This platform is my entire advertising budget and is how I share the word on my books. Also visit my Facebook, my author page and check out my photography book from America Through Time, "Abandoned Wiregrass: The Deepest South's Lost and Forgotten Places."
