It’s Pronounced:

Ae-sen (Aisen)
Ky-een Ray (Kyene Rae)
Ver-vein (Vervain)
Jay-go (Jaego)
Dee-kin (Deakin)

Just to avoid likely confusion, both now and in the future.

In writing news, draft one of the Vampire’s Son is still in-progress. But I’m getting there. It has definately taken a solid shape. Everything is at least ‘planned’, which – believe me – is an achievement in itself.

The question now is whether in fact the characters will work to the plan. Chances are they will look up at me and say “pfft, yeah whatever, woman”, and carry on their merry little way, paying me and my plot no heed.

Damn puppets never dance for me…
