"I see three angels with golden trumpets," I informed him.

 Today's song is to help with the reveal of my secret project, which is really not so secret since I've talked about it before. I've just not talked about it for a while.

 Back sometime during the winter, I posted about how I wrote a short story for a contest. The story was a re-telling of Beauty and the Beast. Mine is set in WWII, about a girl who goes to stay with an elderly man to escape the bombing of London. When she arrives, she discoverers her new guardian is bitter and angry over some secret he keeps to himself. She tries to break through his wall and show him there is still magic to be found in the world.
 (As you can see, my blurb needs work, but I am going to have that adjusted in the next few days.)

 My story didn't win the contest, so I am going to publish it as a short novella. I think on Friday I will be revealing the release date and maybe the cover. I need to get some planning worked out.

 Until then though! I have a song which fits the little story


 Quote is from a book I'm reading, When the Sergeant Came Marching Home. It is during a scene when a younger brother accidentally hits his older brother with a shovel and the older brother is convinced he's dying.

 ALLONS-Y!
