Well, lots of stuff, mostly research for the novel.
But I’m also reading Flesh and Fire: Book One of The Vineart War.
When I preach, I remind myself that the Collegium was created for one purpose: that the world not forget Sin Washer, and how–and why–He came to us.
And thus begins the prologue in which the world is revealed, a world where Vinearts have the responsibility of tending the magical grapes and making the wine-blood that was created by Sin Washer’s blood.
Magic and wine-making, a compelling combination, and the first book that has held my interest enough to make me sit down and read it in a long time.
That’s the book du jour on planetpooks.
