It's summer in my part of the world and my family headed for the beach at the request of my mom though we've always preferred to stay home from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday. Not only do the usual heavy traffic and its attendant noise and pollution virtually disappear when just about everyone leaves town for somewhere else, the resulting peace and quiet promotes a more prayerful atmosphere too. But the resort we went to has a long beachfront where you can find a nice cozy spot for yourself if you're so inclined. It's also far enough from the madding crowd that you can forget the outside world and and just relax and enjoy each other's company. So we came back rested and refreshed and thankful that my mom is persistent almost to a fault.
It's been a very long while in between updates for Prior Claim. This is rather short and transitional in tone and a little foreboding for an Easter offering, so I decided not to make it one. But it felt good writing this and there was a lovely sense of homecoming when I immersed myself once more in this universe. Hopefully, I'll manage to write another one before too long now that I've submitted the manuscript for Book Five to my publisher. I'm now waiting to see if they'll pick it up (crossing all my fingers that they do!), but in the meantime I might as well try to update as much as I can before I start the next book. As always, I hope this pleases.
