It’s all a question of status in chapter 3 of To Ride the Lightning Bolt

This is what Daphne lacks

Daphne Vane is a third-class member of her world. She not only has to ride back in coach, other people decide what flight she’ll be on. We’re talking in metaphors, of course. It’s all about love, sex, and marriage — you know, things that can make your life even more uncomfortable than a middle seat on an airplane. So who’s to blame Daphne if she decides to step off the plane . . . oops, this metaphor is breaking down. Unless Daphne drops 30,000 feet in the process. Oh, yeah. It is going to feel that way. Sucks to be you, Daphne!

Find out what I’m babbling about in chapter 3, “Of demigods and the demimonde,” this week’s installment of To Ride the Lightning Bolt, my current serialized story. New chapters come out every Friday!

(Yes, this is coming out late Thursday night. It’s sort of like how an airplane . . . oh, never mind.)
