Here I am, like I needed another blog in my life. This is the place where I will be doing the prewriting stuff for my novel Dagon’s Last Sacrifice and maybe some stuff for an alternative history thing with Native Americans. But the Philistine thing comes first. A blog is a wonderful tool for writers because you have the illusion of writing without the actual product coming forth. Like writing practice with an audience. Except I don’t have an audience yet. But here I am never the less.
So, what is this book about? It’s the story of a young teenage girl in ancient Philistine. She is living life in the shadow of her priestly family and her older sister, who was a sacrifice to the Philistine god Dagon when she was of the proper age. So we have all kinds of mother issues to deal with, because her mother is kind of cold and distant, why get close to another daughter when she’s just going to die at some point, right? So really , I guess this is the book that will deal with my mother’s death at some level.
