The Bitterrose has published a few official drink recipes but the Road of Embers is still a closely kept secret... Once I've tasted it a few times I might decide to reveal it though 😋
While I don't want to give anything away, we're not too far from the last page of this current Moonsprout story "Only Echoes," after which I'm planning to take a short month of from publishing pages while I work on more stories! In the meantime though, I'd like to know from you what you would like to see! Do you have questions for Mapel, Val, Auggie, and Anise? What about Poppy and zir pomace drink? Please let me know.
If you're a Patreon supporter, this week you can hike with me and my friend Emily through part of the Wildwood trail, and follow along with my hand-drawn sketches of the different trees, flowers, and a slug that can be found out there. I absolutely appreciate all of the support from my Patreon people - but this month if you have some spare money to give, I want to ask you to give it somewhere else:
In the US right now, thousands of immigrant families and children are being mistreated, assaulted, and incarcerated in concentration camps at the border. There is no controversy about whether this is or isn't happening - it's a racist, human rights violation on a grand scale. Please, please if you have means to help, head to this article for places to donate and/or volunteer, and also RAICES, perhaps more importantly, share this message and resources. Finally, consider attending the Lights for Liberty vigil this Friday in your neighborhood - just being there shows the world that we don't want to be a country that writes off the humanity of others.
