I know I'm a bit behind the times but Cobblestone Press is officially open for business. That means that you can buy all of our fantastic books, read and enjoy them. You've been waiting, haven't you? Well, wait no longer! You can buy Fortune's Fool right over here!
There is also a new review from Fallen Angel Reviews. Amanda says, in part, "Fortune’s Fool is an emotional, rewarding story rich in characters and realistic details." It got 4 Angels, and you can read the full review here.
I'll be putting the covers for my next two releases up on the side bar here, hopefully later today. I'm still playing catchup a bit, but there's no reason for radio silence. I'm back!
So let's get back on the wagon, shall we?
The teacup took seventeen days to construct. Three villages worked together, digging clay, smoothing it into sheets and firing them into bricks. Twelve men painted and glazed and set the stones and a lake of laquer was poured over the resultant vessel.
No one for miles would have tea until the next crop grew. Every leaf was gathered and bound into a sheet of linen that would have blanketed the magistrates house. It took a team of eight horses to lever it over the lip of the cup.
Then an canal was dug from the Myoli River and the fires burned for five days just to get the water hot enough.
Yi pedaled hard. He was part of the last task. He was the thirty-fifth rider in a string of forty men bringing blocks--not cubes--of sugar for the God's Tea.
