I went down to Old Orchard Beach for a couple days last week — a business trip. Carousel Seas, which is due on August 15, is set during High Season — July and August — and I wanted to be certain that I had the world-building right.
Mostly, I did, but I’d forgotten how very, very noisy the town is during the height of the Season.
For those who had been following the Archers Beach photo diary in the fall, I’ve uploaded some pictures from this recent trip, right here.
As advertised elsewhere, I will be on-site at
Archers Beach Old Orchard Beach during the month of September. This is a working research and writing trip — my first ever! This is what comes of mostly working in a totally imaginary universe. Not to mention that I’d scarcely last an hour on Solcintra port, given the Utter Terran-ness of my manners.
Be that as may be, I’ll be repurposing this space as a working blog. I’ve also set up a Pinterest board, here, where I’ll be posting such photographs of the town as I may make. Be aware that I am not a photographer of note.
Anyone who may be interested in these various iterations of an Author at Work is invited to join the fun.
Since it has been requested, and assuming I can figure out how to make it work, I’ll be adding a PayPal button to the sidebar. If you’re of a mind to support the site, the blog, the photographic endeavors, or the author at work — the button is your friend.
Here ends your Distant Early Warning.
