“The Lost Languages of Exiles,” at Metaphorosis for your reading pleasure, is a romance.
Romances are new territory for me. I used to say I don’t write romance–not in any sort of superior way; in an ‘I have no idea how to do it’ way. And now look at me–two romances! Two! And a time travel story, sort of, so my father should be pleased with me.
Metaphorosis is going to be posting a brief explanation of where this story came from in the next few weeks, so I don’t want to say too much about it here. I do love it; I can’t tell you how happy I am that it’s found its home and that people can read it. If you liked Dropping Slow and wondered about Javi’s ports or what his childhood/adolescence was like with IWT, this story will give you more background on that. And there is probably one more story set in this universe currently taking shape in my notebooks (it’s one Jason has said he wants to read, so I’m determined to figure it out).
So, yeah–head over and read. I hope you like it. And yes, that character is named after exactly who you think he is. But he doesn’t look like him.
