New Year, New Opportunities

On one hand, I like New Year's, but on the other hand, I wish it would come at another time of the year (primarily when there was no snow). Still, this new year so far has turned out warmer than expected which isn't a bad thing.
American Falls, 2014
I hope your new year has gone well. For me, changes have already begun which will prove exciting, nerve-wrecking and different. I have a job. I haven't had one for the past couple years, so writing and weaving have been the primary source of income, but it's been tight. Now, I have a job which I'll start in the spring.

The catch? It's in Korea.

Honestly, I'm excited about the possibilities provided, not the least of which is I'll be able to experience a new country and continent (making it three continents down, and three to go because I have no intentions of visiting Antarctica). Also, since one of my recent stories take place in Korea, I'll be able to add the cultural vibes I couldn't add earlier.

It's going to be brilliant.

That being said, Wordless Wednesday will most likely shift from doors to general photographs which strike my fancy. The focus will still be story-starters, but it will be more interesting, I should think.

The other good news about this new job is, with steady income, I'll be able to focus on finishing up Azure Maris' and Orfhlait's storylines. Unfortunately, both women are left hanging at the moment, but I hope later this year, I'll have news of their newest novels being released.

Stay tuned for me information.

Until then, I hope everyone has a happy new year, with new possibilities and adventures.


  1. Wow, Korea! That's exciting and scary, the perfect combination for an author to experience and write about.

    1. I know! I've been doing research on Korean history, and I'm super excited to see all these interesting places. One of my older cousins was over there during the Korean War, but the history of Korea beyond what we Americans know is absolutely fascinating.

      I'm definitely going to post photographs about all these interesting topics and places in the coming months.

Chapter Four - The Board and Council

The town center was the oldest and grayest part of the town, though, even there the buildings were still colorful with the stone buildings being blue-gray, pink-gray and lavender-gray. In the center of town, marking the absolute center of the town, was a park area with a fountain in the center, the fountain led down into an underground grotto which was currently overflowing with people not unlike the fountain above it. “Looks like it’s connected,” Ramses said. “I think Mederei said it was had healing properties.” “That would be the place to look for the tapestries.” “Mama,” a child whispered loudly. Why was it when children whispered they yelled? “Why is that man so brown?” “Shh, honey, he’s probably from the capital region.” “No, Mama, they’re black, he isn’t. He’s brown, and scary looking.” The boy, blonde haired and blue eyed like his mother, was probably from the town. It was said that on the Isle of Caergwl├ón, the darkest were those in the capital and from there, they lost their color…

Chapter Nineteen - Negotiations

And we're back! Apparently my computer was sick, needed a reboot and now I'm in the process of organizing it all over again. Ah well. 

She was annoyingly brilliant, stubborn and naive; he was equally brilliant and stubborn, but not as naive. Kiango and Mederei were too valuable to the kingdom to remain in constant battles, but that's where they often found themselves. Both trying to solve a problem to help their families, friends or kingdom, but often going about it the completely opposite ways. Both had the power and prestige related to their families, and both wielded that power in strange and unusual ways. Kiango used his influence to lead the younger members of the society, but unlike other members of the royal family, had little magic. Mederei's magical power had to remain regulated and hidden because of the rules. How much of Mederei's ability Kiango knew about though ... They would always remain in conflict with one another, but there had to be some way they c…

Chapter Sixteen - Cafes and Puzzles

“What have you found so far?" Mederei inquired from the coffee shop near the hotel. They had finished their meal and wandered over to find coffee and explain what they had heard. Mithrilanna and Luna, who were still out and about, listened through their glasses. Mederei had propped her glass up against an empty mug so everyone could see each other. Well, when Luna wasn't shifting her glass at odd angles. "Not much, but I happened to find Thuweni earlier," Luna said. "He said that the prince is here to save the area from a five-hundred-year disaster. There's also a book about Damla Isle that Kiango loved as a child. You don't happen to have it, do you?" Mederei snorted. "Didn't even know he could read until a couple years ago." Ramses blew out his breath. "You're being more obnoxious than normal, Medi. What is with the two of you?" "Life in general," Caradoc assured him with a wave of his coffee. He set the mug on …
