It's that Time of Year!
Time for writing and writing and writing and staring at the computer screen thinking about how we SHOULD be writing.

Within the Ironwood
Within the Ironwood is a gaslamp retelling of Snow White.
Branwen has spent most of her life in her castle tower, building beautiful,
intricate constructs. Her favorites are the birds, who can fly freely in
the sunlight, unlike their pale-skinned creator. When her new stepmother
orders the destruction of her birds on the eve of her father’s death,
Branwen realizes she is no longer safe in the castle. She flees into the
Ironwood, a dangerous forest within which many wondrous and terrible things
lurk. In the home of a family of dwarfs, Branwen finds welcome refuge, but
as her stepmother’s preparations for war begin, the princess must choose
