Cheese sandwich, Green Tea, Weird Art

The artist who is doing the cover and inside illustrations for the novella written by me and W. H. Pugmire is Erin Wells, an outstanding talent with impressive credits to her name.  I’m very pleased she’s involved with our book, The Revenant of Rebecca Pascal, which is being published by Dark Renaissance Books.

Back when I was still working full time, I always had the same thing for lunch at my desk:  a sandwich of cheddar cheese and mustard on sourdough bread, with a cup of Green tea, no milk.  After I semi-retired and changed to half time work, my lunch also changed to a fancier turkey and cheese with mayo and pickles on sourdough, and a cup of milk.  Today, I thought I’d resurrect the old lunch.  Maybe out of nostalgia, maybe because it was simple and good, or maybe because it was lower fat.  Take your pick.  I may stick with it.  Just thought I’d mention this to the millions (or tens) who will read this post and wonder about the author’s habits.
