Beta Readers, get ready: Changelings is in your hands!

D: Also known as “In Which A Falls Asleep Mid Spell-Check”

A: I did not.

D: You did so. I saw it.

A: I had something in my eye. I had to close them.

D: Uh huh.

A: Okay, maybe I did nod off, but then this song came on and I perked right up again.

D: At least you were editing and not playing that ridiculous game with the rot-your-teeth devils.

A: You mean Candy Crush? Everyone needs a break, D. You’d love it.

D: I would never succumb.

A: Oh, sure. You say that now – everyone succumbs to Candy Crush, D. Everyone.

D: I am made of sterner stuff, A.

A: Or you’re just stern. You do realize that I’m planning on taking a 2-week vacation from writing, right?

D: A full 2 weeks? What are you going to do? What am I going to do? What in the gods’ name were you doing for the last two weeks?

A: Wow – I didn’t know your voice went that high. You’re kind of funny looking when you’re flabbergasted, D. And to answer your myriad of questions: Yes. Read, play, blog, play, read, sleep – not necessarily in that order, but you get the idea. Be your regular outrageous self and make snarky comments in my head and this blog. Editing. I edited and learned stage directions, D. I’m multi-talented.

D: Gee, someone has an inflated sense of herself.

A: . . .

D: Well, I suppose that plan is all right. So long as you blog.

A: So glad my Christmas vacation plans meet with your approval.

D: Is that sarcasm I detect?

A: Oh no, never.

D: (Eye-roll) Well then, congratulations, A. It’s been quite a year, has it not?

A: You ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie, D.

D: And yet, I still do not understand the words that come out of your mouth. I think it’s time to turn off your 600+ carols, A, and go to bed.

A: You know what, D. I think you’re right. Good night, all! Thank’s for reading. And if you want to be a beta reader to, and give us your two cents, give me a shout at!

    1. 🙂 Aww – thanks, Ionia! I forgot to tell you: there’s a lovely lady-character with your name that found her way into Changelings. She connects the stories/bloodlines (and has her own story to tell, of course!)


  1. Stay strong, D. Don’t succumb to it and remain one of the uninfected. Still no idea what Candy Crush really is. All I get is it’s a game and my friends talk to me about it like it’s a cult. Enjoy your vacation.


    1. He’ll stay strong – if only so he can mock me!
      I’ve already decided – I’m going to finally make my way all the way through Windemere on break. I’m still working (and blogging) but I’m going to give my typing fingers a break!


      1. I know i will – ive read the beginning, but kept getting interrupted. Now, the house is clean, the play is over, the book is in the hands of others and i can breathe/read again!
