I am Beyond Excited to be announcing the release of my short e-story, Spinning the Baiji, due out on October 7th!
Romance blends with a world that is slowly slipping into myth, along the very contemporary shorelines of the Great Yangtze River. In Spinning, Lin confronts the loss of centuries of culture and tradition - and not in a vague, it's-a-shame sort of way. Her home will disappear beneath the rising waters caused by the Three Gorges Dam. Her friends, the gentle Baiji that play along the river's edge, are desperately trying to escape. And, impossibly, Sunlee, the one man she could only and ever love... will leave also, abandoning this idyllic world for the hustle and bustle of Wuhan City.
In the endless rush of today's world - I wonder if it will be only a few short years before people dismiss the memories of the reatures that were clever neighbors for centuries? Will the Baiji become merely myth? Steal a tiny moment from your day, and drift along the Yangtze in this video...
Leave me a comment on your favorite bit of scenery along the Yangtze, & you might be selected to win a free e-copy of Spinning the Baiji! Do check back tomorrow- Prizes all week!
