Lividity, allegory, and supplication

Updated: Mar 14



I'm livid.


Actually, I'm not. Geekily awestruck is what I am. I've been working on the follow-up to Devon’s Island and I've learned two things recently that have piqued my interest. Before I get into that, I'd like to welcome you to my very first newsletter. I promise not to send more than one a month (at most). Everyone knows the sky on Mars is a dull salmony sort of colour, right? And it is – mostly. But it turns out that it isn't always that colour. At sunrise and sunset – for just a few minutes – it's blue. You can find out why here.


The second thing I learnt (in searching to find a word to describe the colour of dawn on Mars) was a word I thought I already knew. Livid. Turns out, it's not just a mood; it's also a colour.
