I haven't posted in ages, but I haven't forgotten you. I've been putting the finishing touches on a new novel that is pro-monarchist and, in general, High Tory. Imagine a Brideshead Revisited that isn't fatalistic towards monarchism. It revolves around two young female peers, 19 yoa, one an earl's daughter, Emily, the other a German baron's daughter, Annette, and their sincere quest to figure out their place in the modern world vis-a-vis noblesse oblige. I'll give you all the first peek at some excerpts soon. I will try to get it "regular" published, but due to the entirely impossible publishing climate these days, will probably not waste much time and go straight to Amazon self-publishing. All in all, Emily&Annette will amaze, I guarantee it.

This sounds interesting... I'll definitely take a look at it.

Well, the finishing touches have proved more daunting than I thought. Still working on it. Basically, many of the issues any monarchist has with the modern world are being dealt with in E&A mainly around the issue of noblesse obligue which confronts anyone of a noble spirit in these days.

So the girls are dealing with a modern world that is reeling from all the intentional instability, all the "crazy-making" spewed out by Big Media. Keeping the masses alienated, isolated, unsatisfied means a malleable, materialist-based mindset. Ironic that such an outrage comes over allegations of Russian trolling, when they've only tweaked the available tools. Quite hypocritical of crazy-makers to criticize other practitioners.
