The bonus Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, June 19 featuring the series Hart's Farm. You may find some prompt ideas in "Bonus Perk: Hart's Farm Characters."  You can help by boosting the signal.

I have the rest of my contracts for the Llewellyn annuals.  Much busyness in this summer's writing season.

"An Amazing Carriage of Amber and Jade" belongs to the Steamsmith series.  Maryam experiments with combining two important alchemical materials.

Weather here has been warmer and dryer.  There was supposed to be some rain but it never materialized.  Neither did the high winds, so that part is good.  But even the weeds are starting to wilt, and it's only June.  0_o
