April sure went by in a flash, and the weather was the usual mixed bag. We even had snow flurries yesterday, though the sun is shining brightly this morning. Still, the weather will remain rather cool, with temperatures below average, for a while longer. But that’s par for the course. As they say around here, you don’t plant your garden until after Victoria Day, which this year falls on the fourth Monday in May. Mind you, we’re already getting the outdoor living space ready, even if it’s too cold to sit outside and relax. My gas grill and charcoal smoker are ready for action.
I’ve passed the one-third mark on the seventh Siobhan Dunmoore adventure, but progress is coming in fits and starts since I’m world-building again to create the post-war Commonwealth and Fleet. And said world-building, of course, needs to account for things mentioned in Decker’s War when discussing that time in history. But it’s also interesting to create the foundations for the bridge between Dunmoore’s era and that of Decker, Morrow, and Ghost Squadron. I’m aiming for a summer publication date, most likely in July, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
In the meantime, stay safe and healthy, fellow humans. Peace.
