Update On Curse Of The Fey - Morgana Trilogy

Hello everyone,

2018 is nearing its end. Already. At last.

This year has been fraught with trials, and I'm really hoping 2019 will be the start of a new, happier chapter! And it will start on a really great note, for the third and final installment in the Morgana Trilogy, Curse of the Fey, will finally become available (happy dance)!

And before it does because available, I'll be sharing a few chapters of the new book with you via my newsletter (starting in January), so stay tuned.

In the meantime, I would like to thank you for sticking with me these long years, and hope you have wonderful end-of-year holidays :)

 See you in Q1 2019!

A Note On Pleasure

All of us, even when we are doing exactly what we love, can momentarily focus too much attention on accomplishing the goal and forget to pay attention to our pleasure. 
That is the precise moment to take a break. Stress and burnout occur if you don't. Ecstasy returns to you if you do.

All's Fair In Love & War...The Realities - Belgium 1914

"It is true, as Sartre once wrote, referring to French army atrocities in Algeria, that the real tragedy in our time is that any of us can be, interchangeably, victim or torturer." ~ Gore Vidal

How true those words, considering the French (and many others) had suffered terribly themselves at the hand of the enemy less than 20 years prior during WWII, and not 50 years after WWI opened the world to the extreme brutality of modern warfare.

Yet how can one be swayed to commit such terrible, inhumane acts, sometimes easily too?

It is the subject of this week's article over on The Flat Land That Is Mine: From False Accusations During WWI to Real Atrocities.
