The Silver Egg

The Silver Egg (1999) Post 281

The Silver Egg is a short fantasy in which several animals find a silver egg lying on the ground. Each fantasises about the animal that will hatch from the egg, expecting it to be in its own image. Finally, the egg hatches and the true mother arrives. This little book is about ascribing ideals and motives according to our own, and also about grace upon learning the truth,

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service.
