Witch of the Glens by Sally Watson (1924 - Present).


The time is 1644 in Inverness Scotland. Kelpie, now a teenage girl, doesn't remember being kidnapped by Gypsies. They had kidnapped her at a very young age because her "Second Sight" that was indicated by her blue ringed eyes. Kelpie desperately wishes she were a witch and often wondered where she had come from. We follow Kelpie through a series of events that changes her life forever. ( kirk202)

ooooooo - this is pulling me in. :) I'd like to DPL. What kind of pace do you imagine for submitting sections? I can't keep up with 1-a-day in a timely manner (I aim for within 24 hours), but as much as 2 or 3 per week fits in my pool of PL work.

I'd be happy to have you be the DPL. These chapters are pretty short so I'll probably do a l'll probably record a couple per day on the average, but I don't have a problem waiting for them to be PL'd. It's up to you.

Yay! I will get to these in the next couple of days.

By the way, on your solo, once you've pasted your link into the MW, you don't need to paste it into here as well. - Just leave me a note saying it's posted, and I'll go get it. :)
