#CleanWIP Half-Price Bride: Was Emily considering a job at a saloon!— Laurean Brooks (@Laurean2) July 22, 2020
In the West, young women often ended up there because they could find no other means of support. It happened to Clint's mother. But, thank God, that was in the past. The way she got out of it was another story.

From my current WIP, The Gambit Queen (Book Three: The Magdalen Cycle) (Historical Fantasy)…
She listened, and grew all the more angry as her mother sat beside her, a tight grip on her arm, while Phillip of Dreaux, the handsome, blond-haired and brilliantly blue-eyed Bishop of Beauvais—a thoroughly nasty and viperous man with the tongue of a serpent—had spun lies and half-truths out of the air to malign Humphrey and their marriage, even to bringing forth false witnesses to testify to his lies. And then, her mother, in a desperate attempt to win dramatic support for her suit from the court, had stood up and told her version of the story. A very biased, distorted view of the truth.
#CleanWIP (theme: support) ~ Due to the large outpouring of local support, most of my readership at the time was within a fifty-mile radius. However, thanks to one particular friend telling her friends and relatives, I already had a surprising number of fans in Kansas too.— Earl Chinnici (@earlshelpdesk) July 21, 2020
