Leonie's story

Readers have been asking lately about the third dressmaker, Leonie Noirot, and her story.  The short answer is, it's in progress.  This was one of those times—rare but not impossible—when my writerly abilities were not in synch with my publishing schedule.

Her story wanted more thinking than I'd anticipated.  Not surprising that, not having got enough cogitation, it didn't work out very well.  Now I'm rethinking, which means that we've had to postpone the release of Vixen in Velvet until 2014.

The good news is, I've moved to milder climes, and anticipate a great stirring of creative juices, under the influence of sun and warm temperatures.

Expect photos, here and on Facebook, and occasional reports on this new world I've entered.

Right now, it's a beautiful Sunday.  Puffy white clouds are floating across a blue, blue sky.  The fish are jumpin'—literally.  They're mullets, and numerous theories have been proposed to account for their leaping out of the water.  You're at liberty to research these online—or make up your own, if you are fictionally inclined.

Sorry to hear I'll have to wait so long for Leonie's story, but I understand that there are times when Life intervenes with the Muse, or the Muse mumbles, and things just take longer than anticipates.

Massachusetts does seem to have come in for a fair share of snow this winter. But think about July, when Florida will be hot and humid. You would be looking up exterminators in the Yellow Pages (or the online equivalent) to get rid of bugs that make the mice look warm and fuzzy and tiny in comparison. In my fantasy life I've enough money to move to different climes depending on season, but in my real life I've had to learn to grin and bear whatever the weather gods dish out.
