Continuing in my Month of Thanks, here is my letter for October 21st.
You may or may not remember my little story From Paris, With Regret, written for the Tales From the Archives podcast anthology, but it marked one of the most cherished accomplishments of my writing life to date. I am fortunate to count Philippa Ballantine and Tee Morris amongst my friends, and to have them ask me to write a piece to accompany one of my favorite books of the last few years was unbelievable for me. The idea they greenlighted for me spoke volumes about their faith in my abilities as a writer, and, for that, I am ever grateful. I can’t think of many authors that would allow a complete unknown to create a backstory for one of two main characters for their signature series. Honestly, I still get a little teary with gratitude and amazement over this.
And so today, I am delighted and humbled to present to you the cover for their newest endeavor. Awhile back, Tee and Pip successfully funded a Kickstarter for a board game and companion anthology for their Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series.
