Taking a short break for health reasons… (But pretty pictures!)

Hi gang,

I know I owe you a new chapter of Dark Magick Rising tomorrow (Saturday), but it’s not been a great week around here. I’m still trying to get over a cold that turned into a crappy sinus infection. And then, on Wednesday night, in a totally freak accident, I wrenched the hell out of my back. So I’ve spent the past 36 hours in a sleepless haze from pain. Needless to say, I haven’t been able to get much of anything productive done this week, and, at this point, even just sitting at my desk or in a chair or anywhere is miserable. The chapter I had planned to post this week is fairly long and juicy, but it still needs a LOT of tidying up before it sees the light of day. Unfortunately, right now I just can’t concentrate on it, much less sit through the hours of work it would take to do it. So…I truly apologize, but there’s no way I’m going to be able to get it posted this weekend. Hopefully I’ll start feeling better over the next few days and be able to get back to normal life soon.

So, have a great weekend, everyone, and I will see you on Saturday, September 28th.

By way of apology, here are some pics I’ve used as inspiration while writing Dark Magick Rising. Enjoy! (Hint…one of them I came across a couple of years ago and it inspired the scene that will be coming up shortly in the book!)

The two above have been inspiration for Wen. πŸ™‚ The second one is generally how I picture him in his winged form.

And these two above were obviously part of my inspiration for how Wesley looks when he’s in his water form.

And this one (above) is the mystery pic! πŸ™‚
