§ i just realized that the character i chose for my bullet points is the same character i used in Eldala to separate scenes, except that i used a graphics program, turned it horizontally, and stretched it both diagonally and horizontally. someone told me it was the perfect symbol for the Eldala connection.
just for something interesting, here's the divider i'm planning to use in Black Heart (same symbol, just using a font called Lupus Blight). yeah, the story is quite a bit darker than Eldala.
§ the reason Black Heart is darker--my son is writing the villain. he said that the villain in this one could kick the villain in Eldala down the stairs and take her lunch money. if i didn't know Brandon, i would be worried.
§ on a much lighter note... my blog needed a change but i didn't want to get rid of my giraffes or my background, so i changed background color. i think it looks cheerful.
§ sometimes i look at the reviews for Eldala on my sidebar and they still surprise me. stuff like "a good love story spiced with danger, intrigue" and "Keiran and Arathor both kept a little piece of my heart" are just plain cool.
and the one from Donna Hole that says "Eldala had me frequently fanning my heart between breathtaking descriptive narrative and the heartwrenching scenes of two lovers torn apart by fuedal responsibilities, miscommunications, and cultural animosity..." i can hardly believe that's my book. i had no idea i was writing a book with any of those things. i just wanted to write a good story.
§ i really didn't mean to talk so much about my book in this post, so i'm trying to think of one more random thought about something else... hmmm...i'll be glad to get out of this ridiculous heat. i mean 116? yeah, i know it will get cold in Butte, but i'll be so glad for the change. and real seasons. we don't get those in the desert.
