April-June in my monthly newsletter, I shared a short story I had written based on characters and world from The Book Book. Now that several months have passed, I thought I would share it here on my blog for those of you who aren’t subscribed.
This coming month, October, I will be releasing Chapter 1 of ‘Justice: a Short Story about Milo Praeven’. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss out on meeting the other main character in the Book Book.
I haven’t written in so long! I hope you won’t view me as a fair-weather author who only writes when the inspiration flows, but life has been quite busy. This month, rehearsal for Scarlet: The Outlaws of Nottingham, a musical written by me and my husband – which I am directing – began and it has been a whirlwind. Four-hour-long rehearsals twice a week, with nine-hour-long vocal recording session every Saturday. Add in all of the planning, preparing, and e-mails and I’ve got a part time job with the show alone.
I have been squeezing in whatever writing I can outside of Scarlet, commission work, and trying to keep the house in some sort of order, so it comes in bursts: a couple hundreds words here in the Book Book, a chapter or scene edit for the Varken, banging out some lyrics for our current musical project.

As you all know, I have been working diligently on the Book Book, and part of that process included the writing of two short stories, one for each of the main characters. Each month, I will be sharing a chapter of these short stories will be included in the Monthly Newsletter! They are fun snippets that were very helpful in the development of both my world and my characters.
