  •  This is a wonderful essay, cfk, and a most (7+ / 0-)

    delightful discussion!

    My castle in the air for years has been to write novels and short stories that find a national readership.

    My particular genre--Goddess fiction or Pagan fiction, if you will--appeals to only a niche market, but I have great fun writing it.  Susan from 29 in her latest e-books diary just described an e-publisher that is new to me, Kobo.  I'm going to investigate that.

    I've been enjoying the Liberty Lane mysteries by Caro Peacock. Interspersed with those I've been reading the spy thrillers of Vince Flynn, although I'm getting a bit fed up with his viewpoint (Democrats and any other politicians with moral standards--bad, Republican politicians--good).

    Thanks for this most enjoyable diary!

      my ancient Sumerian romance novella Seventh Sanctuary. (Diana, I know I've mentioned it here before, so sorry if this is old news to you!)

      It should go free tonight at midnight Pacific time. Oh, and beware that it has quite a bit of sex in it. Here's the blurb:

      In a time and place when the faithful looked to a great and terrible goddess for their salvation, a young mother is plagued by feverish dreams about her late husband, jeopardizing her health and her new marriage. Her current spouse goes to the temple to pray for her recovery but, once there, is enthralled by one of the priestesses of Inanna. The web of desire also ensnares the priestess, who considers forsaking her sacred vows to stay with this man who already has a wife and family.

      All three look to the goddess for guidance. Will Inanna smile on them -- or is it her will to destroy them?
