7/14: 68 words. I’d been having a bit of difficulty figuring out how Middle Builds 1 and 2 would unfold in Casual Business with Fairies, so instead of writing this morning, I did research and really dug into fairy lore.

I had been planning to base parts of this story in German tales, mostly because that’s what I was comfortable with after the three Zauberi Chronicles novels. But that’s not what this story called for.

Once I realized that this was a story rooted in Irish fairy tales, much of the second act of the book began to unfold itself.

Don't miss anything about projects I'm working on, new books you should be looking for, and articles about the craft and business of writing. I'll also give you the first three chapters of my novel, Vulcan Rising.
