Snow!

All of our snow melted before Christmas ever came which had me a little sad. I have always loved White Christmases. It just feels more Christmasy when there’s snow. Yes, I used Christmas as an adjective. Ha ha. Please don’t be offended.

I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Or simply Happy Holidays if you do not celebrate as I do.

Cally is excited for Christmas. Last year she spent it with Gaylon and his large family getting to know each and every one of his sisters. Some sweet and a few sassy. She met the elven king and the elven queen Zara. Zara took an instant liking of her.

This year, however, things are different. I’m not going to give too much away as in terms of plot, but there may be a little tension between our lovers and she may be spending Christmas with someone else entirely. Dun dun dun.

It’s funny how I get the greatest ideas, sometimes, just by walking home from work. I’ve gotten some ideas for the second book of this series entitled Crimson Betrayal, but most of my ideas are flowing forth for the third and final novel of this series Emerald Restoration. I, however, have to tell myself constantly that I need to finish the second before I can go onto the third.

My muse is persistently resisting this, insisting I write the third then the second which makes no sense to me, at all. I usually say go where the inspiration flows, but I definitely think it’s a better idea to finish the second before starting the third.

Amethyst Epiphany is an universe I know I’m going to have a hard time letting go even after I finish the series. The characters and I have grown so close over the years, and I’ll probably end up writing short stories about the characters after the series is done.

I’m curious, though, as to what you would like to be or what you would be if you were part of a fantasy world? If you were a part of my universe which would you prefer to be: a lamia, a naga, an elf, a mermaid, a chimera, a siren, a faerie, a vampire, a dwarf, a druid, a nymph, or a sprite? And which one do you think you’d really be (based on personality, etc.)?
