The Makovesky elephant

It’s official! There really is a Makovesky elephant! Anyone who’s read my books knows I try to insert at least one elephant in each (several in ‘Raise the Blade’). And now it’s started following me about, and appearing at random where I least expect it. Apparently it’s standing on the banks of a lake, and you can see the reflection underneath its feet.

(Cough. For the practically-minded, this was actually a random water pattern on our garage door after rain. But I rather like the idea of a fictional, mystical elephant popping up every now and again…)
