I was not very familiar with the Norse myths and legends until I read the work of, and then became friends with, Phetra K Novak, who writes a wonderful Norse myth inspired series call Haven's Revenge.
I was, as usual, minding my own business, standing outside at the house, smoking a cigarette, looking dismally at the metre of snow on the ground that I knew I would have to clear the following day and then WHAM, the full moon rises up over the ridge and sets my world and my imagination on fire - BAM - you get a story - so thank Phetra and the snow and the moon.
The underlying premise is very much - what is our life worth? What will we leave behind? Who cares? Jack is about to find out, once he meets the mysterious Monsieur Gilbert Mutare.
I hope you enjoy this and the other quirky shorts in the series - series one is now available in a box set - series 2 will also build to 6 stories (I have a thing about series being 6 books long).
Many of you won't know this but Shannon M, Kirkland edits all of my work and since the formation of The Carter Seagrove Project, she has edited and published 1,500,000 words for me alone (and nearly a million more for the other members of the co-op) - no one could ask for a better friend and colleague.
The sun is shining today and there is no snow so I guess that means I can safely go back to working on my sci-fi novel - Black Moon Rising. A #LGBT themed sci-fi epic of +100k words ... might be ready by Easter.
