  1. Hey there,
    I already wrote you a lengthy review (or rather rave) for this particular story, so you know how much I love it. I just want to use the opportunity to point out that I re-read it at least once a year and it’s a go-to comfort story that I feel like reading when I’m upset. It’s the atmospthere, the unexpected peacefulness and closeness of Hekate and Cal while they’re in the middle of a war, the superb mixture of worldbuilding, plot and characterization, which I don’t see very often in short stories. It’s just a pleasure to read every single time. Look what you did there! 🙂

    1. I’m a little bit in love with you for telling me that. <3

      I love fantasy short stories, exactly because they have to pack a punch in terms of world building. When I was a child, I devoured all short story anthologies published/assembled by Marion Zimmer Bradley. They're a bitch to get edited though. ^^ You try and explain to an editor that no, you can't use a different plural for Fian / Fianna because it's an actual existing word from lore. :p

  2. I’ll immediately snatch your rss feed as I can not find your
    email subscription hyperlink or newsletter service. Do you have any?
    Kindly let me know in order that I could subscribe.
    Thanks.

  3. Having read this I thought it was really informative. I appreciate you spending some
    time and energy to put this article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending a lot
    of time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  4. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    Thank you!

  5. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Appreciate it
