I’ve been sitting at the computer for over an hour cleaning out my email inbox—I had emails sitting unread from over 12 months ago. Not a good thing, but I am hoping to keep up this year! As I was deleting, I felt bad as I had wanted to read them but just didn’t have the time. Also, it was form of procrastination as I contemplated the next article to write for my blog.
Food in the ancient world series was short as the main regions Evan and his companions journeyed were in and around the Mediterranean. I could go into the culture, beliefs, social structure, government and politics of the ancient civilisations, and then I realised it sounded too much like the assessment task I had given my class. So, I scratched that idea.
What to write next? Well, I do have a new book that is about to be published, that I announced some weeks back. It is book 2 in the Servant of the Gods series and the characters’ travel to different locations, which helps them in the quest to locate the sacred relics of the Mother Goddess.
When I post next time, we’ll go back in time to the ancient city of Pylos, home of Nestor who was the elderly king from the story of Homer’s Iliad. I haven’t as yet given a name for the blog series. It may go something like ‘An odyssey through time’, a tribute to Odysseus and to one of my beta readers who said the story read like an epic odyssey.
Short and sweet, oh well.
Thank you for your continued support and as always, I look forward to your comments.
