I’m grateful to the A to Z blog challenge for showing me the whole daily blogging thing isn’t as big of a grind as I had worried it might be–so long as you have a useful framework and a way to build your posts ahead of time for a more guaranteed timely release.
The timing of the challenge has been a great boon for me as I promote my new book, Dust to Blood. Today we’re back to eye candy with the mid-range aged version of one of the “lost boys” of the book, Vasily. (I feel lucky to have found a collection of male model pictures on Dreamstime that have the ethnic and otherworldly feel these men conveyed in my mind!)
The cluster of names I chose are all common Russian names, but I chose them specifically because their first initials combined to form the acronym I.V.F. It works thematically for a number of reasons I don’t necessarily want to share to avoid revealing a spoiler, but definitely links to the idea that there needs to be some sort of intervention to counterbalance the technological constraints on these men being able to propagate their species.
I hope those of you who have bought Dust to Blood are enjoying reading it so far, and I look forward to hearing my first reader feedback on the book.
