On the road. Airplane, then Drove four hours through the back roads of Ohio, beautiful and lonely, hours went past and I didn't see another car, a gas station, anything. It was silent and lonely. I listened to stories on Escape Pod I'd burned to CD. It really was a lovely thing. Eventually I found a major highway on the GPS and turned in that direction and at 3:25 a.m. I found a motel, scheduled a wakeup call for 9:15 and fell asleep as soon as I got into the bed. I woke up about five minutes before the wakeup call, even thought it was past nine in the morning it still felt like one of those lonely mornings where you're the only one awake. I left the motel and drove the remaining hour to Columbus where I met Charles Finlay (www.ccfinlay.com)at the coffee shop he works in. He wrote the the Traitor to the Crown series (The Patriot Witch, A Spell for the Revolution and The Deamon Redcoat (The Patriot Witch is available for free download on his web page -- check it out). Magic and mayhem during the time of the civil war.Charles is a really nice, happy kind of person very easy going and fun. One of the worst things about a project like this, and even Armed America is that you meet people who are interesting and intelligent and creative and you think "If we lived closer, we'd probably be friends, but as it is, I'll probably never see them again." Travel taunts you with looks at things you can't keep.
