Alex Bancroft is not in a good mood. He dislikes what Hannah Wyatt, the Instrument of the Divine, did to the head of the High Council. And Emily Fisher isn’t contributing to his good humor, not at all. So it is no wonder that “The Prophesied One is upset,” chapter 27 of Prophecies and Penalties, my weekly serial about a murder investigation at a Vermont religious commune. If you’re not already reading the story, you can start here.
My apology that there was no post earlier this week. Some events following upon a personal matter I mentioned in a previous post ate up a lot of my time this last week. And the post I was preparing kept getting put off, incomplete, day after day, until I realized Wednesday night that it simply wasn’t going to get out this week. By that time, it was pointless to tell you all there would be no early-week post. Anyhow, I’m hoping to get back on track this next week, with a twist. You’ll see.
Even though your fans await your next missive with delightful anticipation, there’s no apology needed for the priorities life inserts into the schedule! I hope that your mother is doing well. I suppose she noticed that her contemporary, actress Lauren Bacall just passed away at 89!! My mother (85) seems to be keeping track of who she has outlived lately!! These things remind us to get the most out of our days before our own expiration date gets here!! Again, best wishes to your mom!!
Thanks, Judy. She’s doing quite well, but she dislikes interruptions to her routines, and she’s having to go through quite a few just now.
A creature of routine myself, I can certainly understand that!! Glad you are there to provide continuity, love and support.
