Just wanted to let you know my guest blog is up at Lytherus.com - about how life is fodder for my stories. And I wanted to add another "life is fodder" story. When Kerrick calls his men gentlemen, as in, "Become one with nature, gentlemen. We'll meet at the rendezvous point." I borrowed that from one of my son's soccer coaches (one of my favorites). He always called the boys gentlemen - and as an ex-Marine, everyone on and off the field (and two miles away) heard him. He was loud but he never yelled at them.
