Lately I have been in a mood - and not a good one; restless, cranky, unsettled. Kind of like the mood of the Waverly's before the apple tree blossoms.
The Waverly's are a family created in Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen Her last book, First Frost, goes back to visit them and they are all in a mood because the apple tree in the back yard is about to bloom for the winter - that's right the winter.
I am trying to get out of my mood by steeping myself in Sarah Addison Allen; having a re-reading binge. Garden Spells, Sugar Queen, Girl Who Chased the Moon, Peach Keeper, Lost Lake and First Frost.
It is helping. I decided to take some of my paid time off and have a break from work.
It is also inspiring me to write. I am so leary, though. Leary that I may be a little too inspired by her, although the characters are not unlike characters I envisioned long before I read SAA's first book.
Misty (Mystical) Tuber trails flower petals behind her when she is content and hints of the smell of a particularly stinky orchid (dead rotting mice) when she is not.
Ian Bellerose is a photographer who has done cookbooks and celebrity portraits and travel photography.
To dive in or not to dive in - that is the question.
Meanwhile - according to her website SAA is working on something new but no tba yet, unfortunately.
