I know I was derelict the last time I posted and didn’t respond to comments. I swear it wasn’t my fault. Balthazar’s (my beloved Toshiba laptop) space bar broke. It turns out that trying to type without a space bar isn’t easy. My back up computer has a space bar, but no internet capabilities. Bouncing between the two while copywriting was challenging enough, blog hopping proved to be more than my patience could handle. Now, I ‘ve got a new keyboard and peace (or at least something loosely resembling it) should be restored to my computing life.
I’m still posting from my Georgian/regency era novella, Snowflakes & Beeswax. It’s a Christmassy, romantic story that takes place on a remote farm somewhere in Northern England.

“Jack!” With a swish of chocolate colored skirt, a young woman stepped in front of Oliver. She stroked the dog’s head with a shaking hand. “Jack, quiet!”
Oliver barely heard the command over the dog’s snarls but the dog must have. The animal leaned against her leg, his mismatched eyes stayed focused on the men. Oliver drew himself up to his full height, puffed out his chest, and smoothed the wrinkles from his clothing.
