I know I haven’t been posting much. Spinning the rough draft of Book 4 from cobwebs and moonbeams has been draining; I don’t have nearly as much detail in these later notes as I did with the first three books.

Right now, I have several more images awaiting me, ready to inspire the rest of chapter fifteen. Let’s see….there’s this one:
What do you mean, I can’t keep it? Awwww but it’s so pretty…
