Alexander the Great and Machu Picchu

As I write this, I've just finished writing the second to last chapter on The Conqueror's Wife, my fourth novel starring Alexander the Great and his menagerie of wives, mistresses, and lovers. (Not to mention plenty of battle wounds, torturing slaves, and elaborate funerals. Never let it be said that Alexander wasn't busy... Or that he was nice.)

One chapter and one epilogue left, all to be written before the end of the month, and then I finally get to start revising!

In the meantime, I leave you with some stunning pictures from last month's trip to Peru and Machu Picchu, which had nothing to do with writing and left me thankful that we don't often dine on guinea pigs here in America.

Machu Picchu really is as breathtaking as it seems. Pictures can't do it justice!
Because what would Machu Picchu be without llamas?
A furry stowaway on one of the many tables plying llama knickknacks. 
An ancient science experiment at Maras: The Incans tested growing crops on the various terraces.
And finally... Roasted guinea pig!!!
