I wrote Alas! for the 2015 April A To Z Blogging Challenge. Every day in April (save Sundays), over a thousand bloggers posted something for this challenge. For more information, click here.
Every day in April, I dressed up as a different character in my story. Each post (found in the Table of Contents below) includes at least one picture of me in costume, along with the latest installment of Alas! Each installment is told (to some extent) from the point of view of the character in that day’s photograph. I worked an average of 10 hours a day on Alas, every day, for the whole of April. It was a lot of fun, in a way. And I think the story is a lot of fun, too. I hope you like it!
But the really vital question is:
Who Killed Lord Cadblister?
To find out, start with the Introduction in the Table of Contents below, and read on!
