Just when I thought the warm weather was here to stay, we had a little bit of a cold snap last night. Nonetheless, it's still Spring, so in honor, check out the inaugural post of the Spellbound Scribes, where Shauna Granger warns us to Beware of the Fairy Ring. And don't forget to check-in every Tuesday for more paranormal fun!
Speaking of stories, my mother told me something interesting the other day. Apparently, my great grandmother was a story teller. Every night before bedtime, she would gather all the grandchildren and tell them a fairy tale. My great grandmother couldn't read, so all her stories were told from memory. She got her stories from her mother, who was THE storyteller. People would travel miles to hear my great-great grandmother spin her tales. And while her daughter (my great grandmother) continued the tradition, she used to hate the gatherings as she had to tend to the guests (which was often). She would refer to herself as La Cenicienta (Spanish for Cinderella!) for having to entertain and clean up after all the guests.
The stories must have been pretty good to attract all those visitors. One of these days, I'm going to have to translate them into English, although my mom says some of the stories may not be in good taste (even better)...
On the book front, I am working on formatting PARADOX for print, so for those that prefer "real" books, I should have them ready for release in the next couple of weeks.
I hope everyone has a great week!
