Still in double digits (hours) we’re nearing the end of the Glacier Beat Kickstarter Campaign! It’s still undecided, bit of a nail biter, but we’ll see what happens. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peak from the book, introducing Ikaajik!
“Ataata’s rifle,” Ikaajik said. “He never uses it.”
“You’re going to use it,” Maratse said. “There are lots of ptarmigan in the mountains.”
“I’m not a hunter,” Ikaajik said. “My eyes…” He tapped the side of his head. “They’re not that good, you know? Maybe I need glasses.”
“Imaqa,” Maratse said. He shrugged, adding, “But you are lucky. The snow is melting, but the birds are still white. They are slow to change colour. Right now, even with bad eyes, you can see a white bird on a black rock. There are enough bullets for you to miss lots of times. You have food for a week. You’ll call me twice a day – when you get up and before you sleep.” Maratse nodded at the sun. “It doesn’t matter when. You’ll call.”
“And if I don’t?”
“I arrest you,” Maratse said.
Did I mention Maratse was in Glacier Beat? 😉
There might be another post or two, today!
