The sequel to STEAL THE SKY is trucking along nicely, just crossing the 50k mark. You can keep an eye on my drafting progress using the little progress bar in the right hand menu. STEAL THE SKY has also been featured on its first ever Goodreads list, hurrah!
Documentaries are always a great source of inspiration for me, and I've been really enjoying BBC 2's series wherein they have a group of historians re-enact what life would be like during particular time periods. Life on an Edwardian Farm was particularly good, as was Victorian Pharmacy and Secrets of the Castle.
I also had the pleasure of attending a Scotch tasting here at the always awesome Borderlands SF bookstore, hosted by Mary Robinette Kowal. What could be more inspiring than Scotch that has been to space?
A Story Recommendation
Out of the Rose Hills by Marissa Lingen. A lovely little twist on fairy tales.
