Here in Carpenter Country we follow the advice of Lewis Carroll, author of Through the Looking Glass: We start at the beginning, go on to the end, then stop. Sometimes we even have a plan! 🙂

The beginning this week was an excerpt from our middle grade fantasy novel, The SkyHorse, the story of Tovi Taggert, who must help a young flying horse return home. Fantasy Souls blog posted a beautiful page featuring a sample from the first chapter of Tovi’s story.

Thank you, Fantasy Souls!

In our book bubble, The Plan, we talk about beginning a new garden, and how we began with the end in mind.

In What Goes Around, another book bubble, we share the fable of a tree massacre in the grapefruit orchard. Sometimes beginnings are endings, and sometimes endings are new beginnings.

And we close this news post with what ended this week: Mirror World Publishing posted the finale of our short story, The Adventures of Flower Girl.
