A snippet, just because.

" His name was Blais Begart, and he was an Eschappé. A troublemaker, the mayor would most likely call him, a rabblerousing criminal dedicated to nothing more than destruction.
The mayor might have been surprised to learn that Blais agreed with him. It was only their views on the value of that destruction that divided them. The mayor and his friends clung jealously to their wealth and property. The Eschappés sought to tear it from their grasp."

4k into the rewrites, and this book is nailing its socialist colours firmly to the mast.

In other news, spring/summer seems finally to have arrived and, along with it my summer SAD. Oh, well. The majority will be happy to see the sun, I guess.

Ooo! Nice little glimpse into that world. Going well, then?

It's going in fits and starts -- big tear-down and rework, and I am havering, as usual. But your input has been invaluable.

Hurray for Book! Sorry you are so miserable during the summer, though. Here is a snowy icon.

Snow! Thank you.
I just don't do heat well. I cope, however.

Huzzah!

And I hear you on the long hard haul of summer . . . I keep thinking only eight months to go. (Better than ten, a couple months of heat waves ago.)

Eep. I think your summers would kill me off. Very good wishes.

I was just thinking how early winter had come this year. You should visit, now, and share our bleak. (Canberra has a bleak winter - the rest of Australia not so much. Choose your wintery city with care.)

Come and visit in December or January (this is a serious invitation, by the way). It will be rainy and relatively cool.
