Summertime

Summer is here, and in Sweden that means long, sunny days. It’s nice, and a little weird, waking up at 2:00 am and seeing the sky still blue, with the sun just below the horizon. Surreal. But that’s one of the reasons why I love it here in Sweden.
 
Particularly pleasant this month is that I have family visiting, so I’m taking the month off from writing to have fun and relax. Which is also why this month’s update is so short. It’s kind of hard, stepping away from my book when it’s so close to being finished (I hope to have it done by the end of the year), but it’s not often I have family from California here in Sweden, and the manuscript will keep.
 
I hope the summer months find you happy and well and I hope you’ll join me next month where I’ll be sharing the cover art for my book as well as writing about the process of creating it. Until then, a little poem:
 

‘Twixt and ‘tween the river’s bend,

A hollowed log upon ferny fen.

On moony nights do the fae here dance,

While frogs on stools swap parlance.
