For those of you with school age children/grandchildren – are you celebrating having the house to yourself after the summer holiday/vacation? Do you plunge right back into your current manuscript or have some downtime to refresh?

back to school

Last week’s question: Do you incorporate politics and/or religion into your stories? What is the reason?

I have used a matriarchal society in my novel, Life in Slake Patch as the background to a young man’s life in that regime. It was interesting to write about the influences and attitudes of a different society. In contrast my novel, The Twesome Loop, which covers two time periods, shows the patriarchal suppression in the 1800’s.

  1. Hi Mandy! I’ve been checking out your blog, and I think you would be a good fit for a monthly author blog hop that I run. It’s called #AuthorToolboxBlogHop, and about 30 of us post on the theme of learning and resources for authors the third Wednesday of every month. I started the hop three years ago as a way for authors to both learn from each other and gain traction on the web, because the hop is also about reciprocal commenting/liking, and we share one another’s posts around social media. Anyway, more info about the hop is below, and whether you join or not, I look forward to reading more of your posts! https://raimeygallant.com/2017/03/22/authortoolboxbloghop/
