My book plan for book two of The Scorched Continent Series is coming along nicely. The outline is firmed up, and I'm just about to begin digging into the draft. Corollary to this, I've been adding pretty pictures to my Scorched Continent pinterest as the visual fuel keeps me inspired and my mindset immersed in-world.
Random cool thing: I've discovered I have my own listing on the Internet Speculative Fiction Database.
As usual, I've been adding evocative images to my Story Inspiration board over on pinterest. But this month it's research into the Belle Époque that has really captured my interest - so much so that it inspired its own board. A short story is in the works based on the mood of this lovely era, and of course it's loaded with perfume-related-goodness.
A Story Recommendation
Sugar Showpiece Universe by Caroline M. Yoachim is a great little flash story about an intergalactic pastry competition.
