That, and trying to update and expand the content. Plus, I wasn't happy with the layout I had set up - it just didn't look professional enoug...

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

Jeanne, on the video at Pella showing the temple of Eukleia (sorry, haven't checked the spelling of that), you can see mountains in the background. This is presumably the Chalcidike peninsula, and the haze is the sea. Can you actually see the sea from Pella? There was a lake on the plain and it woul...

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

I wouldn't call it a literary style. Punchy, colloquial maybe. It might be a style that takes a bit of getting used to.
