Now that She Whom I Love is off to the proofreader (ugh) I finally have a few free moments to crack back in to That Potent Alchemy. Can I say, first, how excited I am that Mosaic Stock is open now? (and they’ll be doing period shoots — ahhhhhh!) Just in time to maybe, somehow, find a decent cover for this one. The realm of choice in 19th-century Black couples is… probably not quite zero, but incredibly minimal. Hopefully this is the beginning of change.
In the meantime, have an unedited snippet from That Potent Alchemy. Isaac, stage crew at the Surrey Theater in London, the summer of 1811, sees Grace for the first time.
