So it dumped snow here over the weekend, a southern storm, the perfect setup to pretty much stop things in their tracks, but it’s already hit the ugly, crusty stage of melting, and most of it will be gone in the next forty-eight hours, with possible flooding because of the quick melt.
Welcome life in Southern Appalachia. We’re not built for snow except at the highest elevations and quick thaws make for flash floods.
Welcome to #WIPpet Wednesday, a blog hop where authors share from their current works in progress (WIPs).
This week I’m picking up from where I left off in Chapter One of my WIP Keeping House, novel two in the Appalachian Elementals series. This chapter is titled “Leave Taking” because that’s what the MC Centenary Rhodes is doing, leaving home and her new life to honor a deal that her lover, Stowne, struck in order to save her life. Sure, Cent’s happy to be alive, but the rest… She’s currently wondering about the dagger Stowne has just given her.
Here’s my WIPpet math for 12/12/18: 8+2+2+1 = 13 short paragraphs from Keeping House, Chapter One.
I’m also sharing one of my preliminary covers for Keeping House. I take great care in my covers, so if I’m sharing it’s because it’s nearly complete and has received the spousal seal of approval.
(Note: The section in orange comes from last week’s WIPpet.)
…“You didn’t deal for this…” Cent’s mouth tightened. “Did you?”
