He was born on the shores of the Kimituru, the river that was the lifeblood of Amratia and Kerma, the only son of a fisherman. His mother bore other children but disease and the harsh life along the river had taken them. He never met his siblings. He was the last to be born, and the only to survive.
Like his father, he had bronze skin, dark hair, and dark eyes.
With my father getting out of the hospital (hooray! He went from “No hope for survival” to “Go home” in a month!), finals, and preparation for the holidays I have not been very diligent in my writing or my updating this blog or my Facebook page. This had led to some pleasant surprises.
I have done fairly well in Kindle sales of “Firedancer: Book I of The Serpent’s Song” even without the advertising. It is moving on it’s own. And the majority of referrers (55%) have been from Facebook: meaning that people who have the book and have read it are telling others to do the same. That is the best kind of promotion out there! Word of mouth means you have something that people are enjoying.
