Karen Memory proceeds apace. I got to introduce a historical character I'm delighted to have in this book, and rig a fight scene with onions. And now my underslept self is calling it a night.

Things researched today include: Rutherford B. Hayes (a surprisingly cool dude despite his rather poor reputation, it turns out), United States currency in the 1870s, period cookery, NECCO wafers, and cod knows what else.

NECCO wafers FTW!

NECCO wafers

YUM!
ha! all my friends are Necco wafer fans too. I should have expected it. Bear, having Necco wafers in Karen will make me happy.
"Hub wafers," in period, because it wouldn't be the New England Confectionary Company for some years yet. (It was still Chase and Company then.)

I mean, I'm moving some stuff around chronologically, because improved technology, so they have EXCITING SHAPES already. *g* But still, as a New Englander, I am contractually obligated to promote NECCO wafers. *g*

Nom. Like me, Karen likes the Wintergreen.
Cool. I like the chocolate ones, myself. But all flavors good.
The more I hear about this new work, the more I'm intrigued by it. Can't wait to read it.
