Of course, Eleanor has no idea that Daniel Boone (his national day is June 7) ever existed, because he lived in the 19th century, and she lives in the 13th, but, were she to see this painting and to read about him, she would mark a resemblance between him and *sighs* Lord Hugh. They are both brave, intrepid, scornful of risks, and enjoy pursuit of game. Eleanor wishes Hugh would pursue her, naturally, but, so far, he treats her with condescension–when he’s not lambasting her about the management of her forests. Ah, well, Eleanor must needs be patient, just as Daniel Boone was, and she may win her quarry. Perhaps, just perhaps, Lord Hugh will decide he cannot resist her charms any longer. What do you think, dear readers? Will Lord Hugh change the venue for his hunting from his forest chase to Lady Eleanor’s castle?
…with thanks to Meradeth Houston’s The Write Stuff….
As Lady Eleanor gazes out her window at the forest, she can just imagine Lord Hugh cantering on his hunter, steely blue eyes focused on the path ahead leading to her castle, his heart focused on her. Well, truth be told, Eleanor can’t really imagine that — she knows his heart isn’t focused on her, although the reverse is sadly true. She sighs and looks wistfully at a painting only recently sent her by a friend. ‘Tis indeed a lovely view, and she wishes she and Lord Hugh could traverse it, hand-in-hand, their hearts beating as one. If only, dear readers….
‘Tis now in the archive, dear readers! Eleanor is quite amazed that people in all sorts of places could know what she was thinking, without sending one of her messengers on horseback with a dispatch!http://www.blogtalkradio.com/authorsontheair/2016/04/15/the-librarian-hosts-marcie-kremer-live
Ah, dear gentle readers, Eleanor herself wonders, what indeed is a radio? But, that question notwithstanding, I will be answering the Librarian’s unscripted, live questions here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/authorsontheair/2016/04/15/the-librarian-hosts-marcie-kremer-live
Eleanor is quite beside herself, and she is in quite a quandary. Will Lord Hugh be listening in?
‘Twould be most heartening if you could call in or text any questions you may have, and we can celebrate afterwards with wine in the Great Hall! My thanks! *curtseys*
Come listen in, if you can, gentle readers! https://www.facebook.com/events/1607545296237947/
Live, unscripted (Marcie blushes!) radio interview on Authors on the Air Global Radio Network! Join in the fun and hoist your wine goblets!
First of all, Eleanor has no idea what “online” means. On a line, somewhere? A line of what? But, without a doubt, she knows what a diary is, and she would never, ever reveal her innermost thoughts to the diary; she can barely accept them herself! Oh, that Lord Hugh, if only he wouldn’t haunt her dreams every night. To think that he will wed her poor sister Mary–’tis unconscionable in the extreme. Poor Mary….ah, but poor Eleanor! She steels herself for her next meeting with that arrogant Lord Hugh. He is still accusing her of mismanagement of her lands and of allowing poachers in the forest. The nerve! If Eleanor had a diary (which she most decidedly does not), the pages would scorch from the incendiary words she would write about Lord Hugh. But online? Never! And her secret thoughts….oh, my….
Eleanor knows this well, of course, but, methinks this advice is lost on her, especially where Lord Hugh is concerned. She is mightily overwhelmed by his presence and cannot stop thinking about him, even in random moments, even though he vexes her sorely with his arrogant attitude. She must, must, must find a way to vanquish him. In the meantime she will try to follow this advice, but ’twill be grievous hard.
Dear Readers, please tune into Authors on the Air Global Radio Network, April 19, 9 PM, Eastern; I’ll be interviewed by The Librarian, who will also be taking your questions via phone and text to 347-884-8266. I’d love to hear from you! The link to listen to this digital broadcast will be up soon! Follow the Facebook page, too, at www.Facebook.com/TheLibrarianOnAuthorsOnTheAir Afterwards, we’ll all celebrate with goblets of wine in the Great Hall! *curtseys*
PS: Eleanor would like to know what a radio is….can you help her?
Yes, dear readers, Eleanor is quite surprised to find herself inside a real book, and not an ebook. At first, it seemed a bit confining — but, she’s sure she can get used to it. Lord Hugh, now, he of the arrogant attitude, he may not find it so pleasing. But, then, we know he is abominably difficult to please. Lady Eleanor, however, would secretly love to find a way to his heart –well– the times when she weakens a bit and admits it to herself, that is. Usually, that happens after a goblet of wine in the Great Hall….
