And some notes from Zefyr. And a new cover. And a few of my illustrations scattered here and there.
If you’ve been patiently skimming the dialog-ey relationship-building stuff (that’s a real author term, obviously) in hope for some actual action, start at Chapter 20. Things pick up a bit there.
Again, this is pretty new material for me. Stuff gets changed and re-worded whenever I do a read-through, but I don’t think anything major is going to change with the plot at this point.
Some of the stuff – the reactor and the subsequent disastrous flooding – I’ve been chomping at the bit to write about. I feel a bit like Zefyr at the end of Chapter 21, flying through the rain on the back of Noa’s bike and laughing when the thunder hits because, wheee, isn’t this fun? Finally, things start to come together. Zefyr has thoughts around the “L” word, which Noa would probably share in, if he knew what love even meant. Halcyon is not just methodical, it’s malicious. Which you probably guessed at all along but now you, like Noa can properly bask in the shock of it.
Anyway, I’ll stop jabbering and let you read it.
