My Blog Week: Sept 10 to Sept 16
All the Latest from Torsade
This week began with a promo post, “Coming in October!”, that features links to two YouTube videos for my serial novel’s debut, with musical themes to accompany the imagery. Also on September 11, a new entry in the Corey Jack series, “Working Overseas”. Corey meets friendly Stan, who seems to know things. “Royce’s Iron Seeds”, is a promo for a future novel. The odd title refers to one of Trevor Royce’s (a character in Yoharie) two blogs: “Iron Seeds” being a chapter from The Totem-Maker, his beloved fantasy novel. The fourth Tourmaline story debuted: “Sympathy for the Torturer”, Anton’s own view of Herward’s representations; that question of whether his suffering at the hands of the state could be called an act of patriotism. “The St. Bernard Hotel” is the eighteenth episode of “Hammersmith”. Aimee, to her annoyance, finds her plans for Jane overwritten by a scheme of Vic’s. A new short story (with so many plot points to resolve, it may grow into a novella), “The Bog”, in which a woman estranged from her town and her past finds entente, began this week. The third entry from the novella “Are You Alienated”, was posted on the 15th: Minta on the receiving end of John’s Cold War discourse.
Finally, “Movie of the Week”, a new poem in the TV culture series, describes a war story, and the framing of a war story.
Photos on my posts usually have a link to related information, sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about clicking links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
