Promises To Keep

0PROMISES TO KEEP.

by CHARLES DeLINT.

OVERVIEW: After Widdershins, I thought I wouldnt write at length about Jilly again. Id promised one more short story about her for Bill at Subterranean Press, but that would be it. Having left her in a good place at the end of Widdershins, I didnt want to complicate her life yet again, so I planned to set the story earlier in her life, during her first year as a student at Butler University. Except the story grew. I was having too much fun visiting with this younger Jilly, so I asked Bill if I could expand it to a short novel. He agreed, so now I m busily working away on this as-yet-untitled novella. It takes place in 1972 and begins with Jilly getting a surprise visit from an old friend--her only friend--from her runaway days. Interspersed with the main story that leads off from that meeting are flashbacks to pivotal moments in her life: time spent in the Home for Wayward Girls, her life on the street, meeting and working with the Grasso Street Angel, the first time she meets various familiar faces (Geordie, Sophie, etc.), and chronicles how the messed-up street kid she was grew a social conscience, and became the cheerful character we know from later stories. Although the book does deal with some serious subjects, the tone isnt all doom and gloom. And while I hope that those of you familiar with these characters will enjoy this visit with their younger selves, Im also trying to make it a friendly entry into Newford for new readers. Lastly, Im delighted to say that Mike Dringenberg--an artist I ve wanted to work with for ages--has produced the cover -- Charles de Lint.

First Printing, New & Unread! For complete archival protection the DJ is  sealed in an acid-free protective book cover upon publication, and then sealed in plastic for final protection.
