The Queen’s Podcast – #5

Two years prior to the death of Arthur, the Great Wizard gave Lady Isabella strict orders to preserve the best years of King Arthur’s life, when he reigned. Isabella was gifted the echo stone: the power to capture her voice and forever keep it locked away until Camelot needed the resolve left in the good times.

Isabella’s secret is her life- but can she keep it, despite her sometimes careless tendency to flee trouble in the strangest of ways?

Episode #5

~Lady Isabella’s Confession~

“A lovely day for a walk in the woods” turns into a risky mistake when a knight follows Lady Isabella to discover what she does when she treks into the forest alone. Will Isabella’s concern for her old friend Morgana get her into trouble at the castle?

WIP Art: Lady Isabella

While waiting for my fellow bloggers to join in on the last post’s voting poll, I am passing time drawing a picture of Lady Isabella, the protagonist of BBCMerlinJunkie’s fan fiction podcast. This is not my photo, it is a picture without a copyright I found in a free photos website, but the art is mine. The concept is still in phase 1, meaning it has many more layers until completion, and the design may change, on her clothes particularly.

I had been procrastinating in finishing the picture because I had a strained shoulder and it was my artist arm that was strained, but today, I just got an e-mail from Podomatic saying my free trial was almost expired, and I would lose ability to use the design tools. Yikes! That may include adding pictures to the podcast page. If so, better hurry and finish in 7 days!

The Queen’s Podcast – #4

Two years prior to the death of Arthur, the Great Wizard gave Lady Isabella strict orders to preserve the best years of King Arthur’s life, when he reigned. Isabella was gifted the echo stone: the power to capture her voice and forever keep it locked away until Camelot needed the resolve left in the good times.

The subtext in Lady Isabella’s stories is the fear of her secret revealing. Can she keep her true motive hidden, though the inhabitants of Camelot become more aware of her presence, and more dependent on her participation in the daily happenings? …who is Lady Isabella, exactly? Listen to Episode #4 for more clues.

Technical problems! Who has time for technicalities?

I was pleased to find an option to add audio files to my blog. I was NOT pleased to find the option is not as simple as uploading the file. Despite what tutorials you find online, it is NOT simple. It either takes money or patience, either of which I have very little. Maybe the tutorials are out of date. Or maybe a hex has been placed on the site. An evil druid, trying to put a stop to my work here? What an interesting turn of events…

Either way, I’m working on fixing the problem. In the meanwhile, go ahead and click the button below to check out our host site and take a listen.
