I am so excited to delve further into Lliam’s psyche as S&D progresses—I wish I could tell you what I have in store for him! The road only gets rockier from here, for everyone, but never fear: there is always hope!
|A Spanish nao, the Victoria|
I've been researching 1700s and 1800s ships all morning—I have to figure out which types are best for the elves. The humans, of course, have the most advanced navy in the world and use iron warships, whilst the elves are lagging a bit in the ship department and still employ European ships, such as galleons, argosies, and bilanders. I love researching (it's a secret passion of mine), but I must say, researching ships is not my favorite, although I have learned quite a bit about these early ships. Hopefully I'll get all my facts straight in B3, haha! A small update on B3 for you—I currently have about 180 pages and am adding more every day. I have no idea when B3 will hit the shelves, so don't even ask ;) I'll be sure to keep you updated!
Have a great weekend, y'all! :)
If you glance at the title, you may wonder what this has to do with my books. Excellent question! It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with my books, but my social media aid tells me I need to post more on my blog, so I'm just following orders :) In case you haven't heard, my brother and his wife now live in Germany (I'm jealous). We're getting to go visit them over the summer so we can see their new baby! :D Excited as I am about my niece or nephew, I am also extremely excited to travel around Germany and the surrounding countries. One thing you need to know about me right away—I love travelling. So far I've been to England, Italy, and Honduras, and I'm hoping to add a few more to my repertoire after this trip! The airline I want to use (Ryanair, which is amazingly cheap!) mostly flies to Latvia, Italy, and Lithuania from Frankfurt, so I'm really hoping to get to go to Latvia and Lithuania :D (As a tie-in to S&D, I do have a few Latvian human soldiers who make an appearance in B3.) I also have a desire to go to Luxembourg; I heard a few years ago that it's the richest country in the world (based on size and income per capita or something like that), so I just want to see it. Plus, how many people to do you who have actually been to Luxembourg? :D So I've been frantically looking up interesting sites in Latvia, Luxembourg, and Lithuania, hoping to convince my parents/brother to come with me. And don't worry—I will spend plenty of time with the baby, too :)
I'll keep you updated and will post lots of pictures, no matter where we end up going! Have a great weekend, all!
Here's a picture from YF's debut and FR's debut! Quite a lot has changed since 2011 ...
Also, I'm still hard at work on (re)writing Book Three. I currently have 160 pages, and the plot continues to thicken with each passing page! :) It's gonna be a great one!
Have a great weekend, everyone :)
