Since yesterday was Mother's Day, and I'm a mother, I relaxed and played with my toys. Ate good food prepared by people who are not me.
(Huh. I guess the "prepared by people who are not me" part is kind of implied by the word "good." Please excuse the redundancy. I'm a writer -- I should know better.)
I also imbibed a bit. Generally enjoyed the day. But instead of blathering on about Mother's Day, I thought I'd share some of the places Ciel Halligan, the main character in my light urban fantasy, IN A FIX, finds herself in the course of trying to get herself out of said fix.
(Trust me, these are a lot more interesting than pictures of me sitting on the sofa, eating my Mother's Day chocolate and watching Netflix movies via my new Roku streaming player, and reading my new books -- purchased guilt-free with a gift card! -- on my eReader, while wearing my lovely new earrings. Thank you, kiddos and TG! I love you all, and not just because of your impeccable taste in gifts.)
SOME PLACES CIEL VISITS:
Now, those aren't the exact places, of course, or all the places. Let's call them representative images. I could tell you more about each of them, but not without spoilers, so I won't.
Suffice it to say, Ciel gets around. ;)
Oh, yeah...question time. Hmm...
So, um, do you like to travel? Do you generally go exotic places of your volition, or are you kidnapped by modern-day Vikings while trying to rescue a client, and hauled halfway around the world?
How about those [insert sports team of your choice]? Aren't they [something/the bomb/craptacular]?
