Update and Snippet

Hi friends, Work on Tea Princess Book 3 has begun, but regretfully posts are going to start later than I’d anticipated. To make a long story short, January was supposed to be a recovery month for me, and instead life Extremely Happened and it turned out to be the polar opposite, leaving me only just … More Update and Snippet

Bonus Scene: When Saiyana Receives Miyara’s Gift from Ostario

This bonus scene is told from Saiyana’s perspective, set immediately following Chapter 18 of Tea Set and Match. A knock on my office door startles me out of—staring at the wall, apparently. My fist clenches around my pen. I can’t even focus on theoretical magecraft diagramming. What good am I? When I don’t answer, Ostario lets … More Bonus Scene: When Saiyana Receives Miyara’s Gift from Ostario

Kelwort Green

All of us are nearly at our collective wit’s end with Iskielo today. I can sympathize with eating too much at the party his parents brought him to. I am less sympathetic about how very he smug he is about said food, all the while groaning and whining about how full he is and how … More Kelwort Green

Ever Starbloom

It takes me a few minutes to break through this customer’s brittle shell of courtesy, but at last the reason for the almost tangible cloud of sadness surrounding her erupts out. “I’m just so tired all the time,” she confesses miserably. “I don’t even like what I’m doing, but I don’t have the option of … More Ever Starbloom

Perynroot Red

I stay out of it as Meristo continues berating Iskielo. “You’ve got the whole boyish enthusiasm thing going for you, but you have to apply it on purpose,” Meristo tells him. “You’re just flailing around, and the customers can tell.” “I don’t want to flirt with old women!” Iskielo protests. “Who said anything about this … More Perynroot Red

Sylph’s Dancedrops

“We just love the idea of magical tea for our wedding, don’t you?” the customer gushes. “It would add a magical effect to what should be a magical day,” I agree. “Exactly! And since we’ll be ordering in volume, I know we can great bulk discounts,” she continues. Does she, now. “Perhaps we should establish … More Sylph’s Dancedrops

Back in Action!

Hi friends, Thanks so much for your patience as I’ve gotten my feet back under me. Just wanted to give you a heads up regular chapters will be resuming tomorrow (though probably pretty late in the evening, due only to the vagaries of my day job schedule this week)! As noted in the comments, I … More Back in Action!

Back from Tibet

Hi friends, I suppose I should know better than to write things like “if all goes according to plan.” The truth is everything extremely did not go according to plan. This trip was an adventure, in the good ways and the bad. Unfortunately the bad ways are mainly that I spent nearly all my planned writing time … More Back from Tibet
