This week I have been focusing on research for Wings of Malice, and looking at angels in particular; what they are, religious interpretations, their hierarchy, and so on. And, in my readings I've come to realise there is more research to be done for my series. At least to refine my story, plot, and the … Continue reading Wings of Malice – research
