These places are dear to me, and I wanted to share their natural magic with those who might read my books."

I often tell people that when I'm stuck somewhere with a book or series, it is like a dam on a river: I have to wait for the ideas to build up, like the water behind the dam, and when the dam breaks I can start writing again.

Greetings readers! This week's entry isn't as informative as the past few. Instead, Jahrra talks about going back to Hroombra's home to learn more about the history of Ethoes. She is particularly hoping that her mentor will tell her more about the Tanaan dragon Raejaaxorix. Although it is low key this time around, I hope you still enjoy it!
-J.E. Johnson
