Iset
Iset is on page 46 of 445 of The House of the Eagle: Okay, so many falsehoods about Alexander in the past 30 pages I cannot keep up. Gonna have to set aside some specific time to address them all later in the day when I have a larger chunk of free time on my hands.

“My soul will not sleep
For want of my sister
The river runs between us
And I am sick with loss.
My pool is broken
By ripples unending,
For the wind has blown her far away,
The wind has blown her far away.

Oh, sister, your perfume
Is like honey dropped in water.
Like spices and pomegranates,
You stain my mouth with longing.
My pool is broken
By ripples unending;
The wind has blown your odor far away,
The wind has blown your odor far away.

The gods have made your love
Like the advance of flames on straw,
My longing like the downward stoop
Of the falcon in bright flight.
My pool is broken
By ripples unending.
I will fly to you on wind far away,
I will fly to you on wind far away.

I am a hunted goose, a hunted one;
The beauty of your shining hair
Is a bait to trap me in your net;
Your eyes, a snare of meryu-wood.
Gratefully I fall
Into ripples unending.
Hunt me, sister, far away.
Hunt me, sister, far away.”
L.M. Ironside, The Crook and Flail

message 12: by Laura

Laura Gill I'm so glad you added my "little" book to your TBR pile. You'll love it.


Khanh (the meanie) Thanks for the friends request! I'm actually going to have to read one of your books when my TBR is looking less daunting. I absolutely love Ancient Egyptian fiction; it's such a rare genre.

Thanks! I hope to have the paperback all formatted very soon, if all goes as planned.

Hmmm...light-hearted historical fiction with Jesus. I've heard
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal is a good one, but I haven't read it myself.


Therese Psyched to see Baptism for the Dead out! I'm going to get it in paperback when it's available.

BTW - any recommendations for historical fiction that's funny or lighthearted? I'm researching fiction with Jesus as a character ... and it's all so painfully serious ... looking now for something set in the ancient world that's a little more chipper in tone ...


Steelwhisper Thanks for the friending! :)


Therese Hi Lavender,

Just saw your post on the hater's group - I'm not a member so can't reply on the thread - but I can recommend SeaBiscuit if you haven't read it, since you said you like nonfiction! That is a serious page-turner and one of the few nonfiction books I've read that would qualify as escapist!

Steph Sinclair Thanks for the friend request! And yeah, that situation was er, umm, less than desirable. The good part is I've made a lot of new friends! :D

Ooh, and just picked up a copy of your book on smashwords through your e-book giveaway. Yay, looking forward to checking it out - I love historical fiction! (I'm currently in revisions for one I wrote set in 1850s France ...) Thanks for the giveaway!
