I nutshelled! Go me!
Read: I was able to describe Places You Haunt
- the Tam Lin aspect, at least - to mgrasso
in very brief!
So. Here. Places You Haunt
is told through the viewpoint of Sara, who's lived in Vegas for four years and become a best friend to Doodle and a mother figure to his adopted daughter, Kaylin - the birth-daughter of my seven-years-dead Janet and Tam Lin characters.
Seven years. Which means the time for the tithe is coming 'round again.
Sara knew life around here was weird, but not *how* weird - not until Doodle's old friends, the people who were *there* seven years ago and fled in defeat and disgrace, start returning, and through them she starts piecing together what happened.
It's also my examination of how stories, legends, begin; how people retroactively become heroes; the nature of story and cycles and the under-magic of things and places.
I should bring the story-so-far on the plane and see if I get sparked to wander some more in that world.
My problem: I have too many stories all competing for the front burner...
