Just a short one for you today, again from my novel The Artist’s Inheritance.
Caitlin spent the day scurrying around Kameko’s print shop, trying to avoid her boss’ sneering looks. She delivered a print job to a Jacksonville art gallery and the drive gave Caitlin ample opportunity to think about Trevor’s problem.
What’s wrong with him? He was wearing himself out and she worried about him. He’d wake up in the middle of the night, and if she didn’t find him scribbling notes or working on his computer, he was upstairs carving away at his chair. She tried to support him, tried to encourage him—after all, the work kept him from brooding over his brother’s recent demise. She’d never had a twin, but from everything she’d seen and read they were closer than close. He should be taking Gordon’s death harder. As far as she could tell, he coped rather well. A meltdown wasn’t inevitable, was it?
Maybe opening the antique shop wasn’t such a bad idea, but she was afraid he might collapse, if he wasn’t careful. And then what? She’d caught him staring Gordon’s work shed once or twice, and she worried he might be thinking of his brother.
She had to do something to make him slow down. Everything didn’t have to happen all at once, did it?
Poor Cait! If you’d like to find out more of why Trevor’s working fit worries Cait, and if his idea of the antique shop is more than just idle chatter, The Artist’s Inheritance is available for Kindle at Amazon and other ebook formats at Smashwords.

Hi, Everyone. I love this time of year don’t you? Everything that can be whacky, will. Hubby’s car didn’t start first thing this morning and there I am out in my jammies wanting to drive a stake through the engine–I mean, helping. At least it wasn’t so freakin’ humid today.
In other news, I just wanted to let you know, I have a new story out.
A little something to get you in the Halloween Mood.
House of Cards
As a young nobleman, Sinjon escapes the Terror in 18th century France to find himself dragged into an even worse fate–a hellish underworld wherein he is cajoled by a hag-like Hanged Woman and put on trial for crimes he never committed. Can he answer the hag’s riddles and thwart his fate, one worse than the guillotine?
It’s available now at Amazon for you Kindle fans for $.99 (free if you’re in Prime). A little paranormal horror, with a historical twist. Just in time to begin celebrating for Halloween! *Kermit flail* YAAAHH!!
Writers are always asked this, (okay, in my case, people are usually telling me “you know, I have this great idea. You should write about it, it’ll make us famous) but anyway…ideas. They come from everywhere, right?
I’ve had this character bopping around my head for awhile named Abby. Abigail, actually. I noted the name down after I caught a docu-drama on American Experience about John and Abigail Adams once (this one, I think). I don’t remember what it was that struck me about them, but good ole Abby stuck in my head.
Never could figure out where to fit her. Then I started working on what became my new novel, The Artist’s Inheritance, and Abigail peeked over my shoulder. “Damn,” she said when saw Caitlin in the starring role. “I missed the casting call again? Aren’t there any spots for me?”
So, it was either the missing mom, (and really she didn’t fit the crazy Welsh mom role) or the gallery owner-mentor role, or the who-knows-if-she-can-be-trusted accountant role. She could‘ve pulled off Accountant I think, but…there was all that math involved. *gah* So she opted for the mentor role. And now she’s recurring character. So ha! Abigail finally found a home. I hope you’ll like what I did to her. (It was the closest I’d come to the dreaded mash-up. I don’t mash much. I’ve got enough ideas on my own thanks).
Of course now all we need to know is what Abigail would think if she knew the real reason behind what’s keeping Trevor away from work so much. I wonder how she’d deal with an onslaught of the paranormal, were Caitlin to tell her everything (one day she might). On the other hand, I’m not sure I want to know what the real Abigail would say. I hope she doesn’t mind me using her name for my favorite gallery owner!
Interested in what this is all about? Here’s the trailer:
If you’d like to see how my Abby came out, The Artist’s Inheritance is available at Amazon and Smashwords.
Also, author Beth Trissel‘s recent post on the subject made me think to post this. She covers the Adams’ much better than I do, so go check it out, here.
I was featured this weekend at Joleene Naylor’s site, Amaranthine Night. Very cool writer. Go check her work out.
And also I’m over at Jackie’s Housewife Blues and Chihuahua Stories again, this time talking about some history that worked into a minor character in my novel. What history? Well, you know the drill…you have to read to find out!
