Going with the Flow…

17 SEPT 2020In Elsetime, treasure-hunting mudlark, Needle Luckett, wears a hagstone – a stone with a hole – tied on a string around his neck. Folklore says that, if you are lucky enough to find such a rare and protective thing as a hagstone, and look through its hole, you might see another world. And that is exactly what I did on 31st December 2019.

“Is that you, 2020?” I asked it.

I concluded that the world I saw through that tiny hole looked no different. But, in hindsight, perhaps it was. I saw an empty beach.

Is that youIt took patience and many years for the flow of water to carve out that hagstone’s hole. And it will take patience for us too, until we finally see a new and better world for all of us. Like everyone, my plans have change:

Everything With Words have pushed out Elsetime’s publication to 17th September 2020. (If you are a book reviewer/blogger, review copies are available by emailing Mikka at info@everythingwithwords.com )

Of course, we can only hope that our world is free by then, and what a party we shall have! And, for those of you a little less patient, find out where you can pre-order a copy of Elsetime here 🙂 In the meantime, just like the water carving its hagstone’s hole, I guess all we can do is go with the flow…

Stay well, everyone!
