The Delta Pearl 75 — Pin

I am sorry the ending is coming because I have so enjoyed reading each chapter. However, I am excited to see how Émeraude saves herself.

Welcome, my chuckaboos. I hope everyone is safe and well.  The Delta Pearl is almost ready to come into dock.  It’s been a complex story, stretching over many months.  For quite some time, I’ve only been able to offer extra-short episodes.  Happily this one is a normal serial-sized length. 

I’m about to unearth some details from the past, as I tie-off the many threads of this story.  If you didn’t see the recap last weekend, it might be helpful to you.  Use the “Delta Pearl” category on the right margin as a shortcut to all the chapters.

Previously

Clockwork creatures continued to emerge from corners and hidden crannies.  A silver swan, a citrine bumble bee, and a sapphire bluebird flew to perch on Cécile’s outstretched arms.  A moonstone monkey, a rainbow fluorite rabbit, a small rose quartz…

The steampunk riverboat awaits. 

All aboard!

Chapter 74 — Stare

Hand firmly clasped over my mouth, I stared in shock at the woman as Malachite’s words came back to me.

“She is exquisite, no?” Malachite remarked in a Cajun accent.  “Cécile Pere, mambo extraordinaire.  A Voodoo queen of unsurpassed skill and beauty.”

My scream escaped in a yip when the leopard slowly came up beside her.  Blue John Boulton hung across the back of the largest clockwork I had ever seen.  The dragging sound was from his feet.

Blue let go of the leopard and sank to the floor.  Cécile Perle immediately turned her attention to…

Anita Page sombrero 1920sAnita Page, circa 1920

Welcome to Jazz Age Wednesdays.  It’s almost Saint Patrick’s Day, so I had to give you something green.  I hope you enjoyed Miss Page.  But wait a minute, I can’t hear myself think.  Horsefeathers! The characters are taking over this post…

Pip:  Hey Andy, have you seen this?  I know you love science fiction and get into some horror stories.

Andy:  Hi-ya, flapper.  What did you say?  Oh I see.  This post is a departure because Teagan couldn’t resist sharing author Teri Polen’s new cover reveal!  Applesauce, look at all that.  Shhh… I’m trying to read it.

Pip: Move over, I can’t see.  Oooh that’s pos-i-lutely darb! 

Would you two get back in your corner of my brain, please?  Thank you.  Now, back to the point.  I’m “green with envy” because Teri Polen’s new book is so fantastic!…

Cover Reveal! Murder at the Bijou – Three Ingredients-I

Love the cover Teagan, looking forward to reading the book.

Bijou front only 2Ta-dah!  I’ve finally finished the technical aspects of book-izing the second of my blog serials.

About the Novel

Murder at the Bijou – Three Ingredients-I is the second of my “three things” style of blog serials.  As with the first serial, The Three Things Serial, a Little 1920s Story, it was a spontaneously written (“pantser”) serial.  Everything in it — characters, setting, plot, was driven by things left by readers of the blog, episode by episode.  However, this time the things were “ingredients” since it is a culinary mystery!  

Pip returns as narrator.  She has new friends for this adventure, as she has been “sentenced” to live with her grandmother until she learns to become a passable cook.  As you can imagine, that does not sit well with our flapper. (Yes, I still need to write a blurb…)

Book Launch?

My “real job” doesn’t allow me time…
