Deja Vu Blogfest!

Thanks to Jemima Pett for tipping me off about this one! It's a brilliantly simple concept: Bloggers D L Hammons and Nicole Zoltack invite you to sign up on their linky to join the party. On December 19, instead of writing a brand new blog post, re-post a favorite from earlier in the year, maybe one that didn't get as much attention as it deserved. Then use the time you saved to hop around and see some of the best posts of the year, and maybe discover some new blogger friends. Oh, and grab the badge and spread the word! That's all there is to it.

The 19th is a Friday, so I will pick one of my stories to post again. A quick look through the year gave me a short list, so I will emulate Jemima and see if any of you have a favorite. These are all stories I liked a lot, but that didn't get many, if any, comments (so I will presume they got few readers).
  • Cartographer's Potion (fantasy)
  • Twisted Love (a tribute to L.M. Montgomery's gothic side)
  • ...And His Dog (a tale from Skunk Corners)
  • Under the Oak (a love story in 10 chapters)
  • Battle Dogs (another sort of fantasy)
Leave a comment if you remember one particularly fondly!

I like this idea, and I like the reminder that sometimes it's okay to go back and give something another chance at daylight. Maybe I should make that my A to Z theme...recycling!


  1. Blimey, I don't remember any of these - can you link them up? My Twisted Love didn't get many either, but I don't want to repeat it as it may appear in a Princelings Anthology one day.

    Was Cartographer's Potion the Gorg one? I liked that! Oh, Battle Dogs was BRILLIANT! It's all starting to come back to me now...

    1. I didn't include any Gorg stories, or Xavier Xanthum, partly because I may put them in a collection of short stories sometime moderately soon. Cartographer's Potion was a curious little fantasy:

      "Twisted Love" is one of my most disturbing stories.
