It’s been a while since I updated this page but it has been a busy summer. Did some of my annual “research” at Bristol’s Rennaissance Faire.
Preparing for the arrival of another grandchild in October.
Celebrated my 29th wedding anniversary with the love of my life.
Can’t complain. Things have been good.
On the writing side, I am working. The last book in The Crystal Crux series is written. I am working on the edits, being a bit of a perfectionist since this is the last book for Pero, Anthea, Francis and the bad guys. LOL
I’m also working on another surprise concerning the series and hope to have an announcement about all the excitement before the first snowflakes fall. Fingers crossed.
This is just a reminder that I haven’t forgot about the fans of the series and I am working on it. If the Lord says the same, it will be published in 2022.
Hope and pray my reading audience is healthy and well. Great things on the way. Keep reading!
It was Lammas Day, an English holiday celebrated nowhere else in Italy but Capua.
The festival had been shepherded in by the Whitehalls and was slowly being integrated into the culture. Much of the grain was harvested by the end of July but without much ceremony. Now, on August the first, sheaves of grain were piled high on large oxcarts and paraded around the city square as children passed out loaves and biscuits baked by their mothers. No one went hungry. Everyone received a share, from the richest to the poorest. It was an all-inclusive revelry that helped to draw the community together, bringing in citizens from the nearby towns and hamlets.
The parade ended at the doorstep of the church where the deacon presided over the breaking of the loaves. – COLD KNIGHT (Book 3)
