Back to writing!
In the past week, I’ve been diligently working toward the finish line of Lady Isabella. Written in the first person, I often enjoy this point of view. I realize that it keeps the thoughts of other characters hidden, but I needed to explore the emotions and inward thoughts of this young character.
Currently on Chapter 14 and reaching 28,770 words, I’m hoping to bring this book to the final closing by the end of December. Muse willing. In the meantime, here is a peek into the chapter titles to tease your interest.
- Scandalous Behavior
- Punishment Well Deserved
- Preparations for Change
- Hidden in France
- Goodbyes and Hellos
- Polished and Finished
- Dinner for Two
- No Room at the Inn
- Homeward Bound
- A Secret Rendezvous
- Hats and Horses
- Lines are Drawn
- Desperate Measures
- The Out-of-Tune Aria
Of course, more chapters are to come. My plan is to release these new books in eBook, print, and eventually audio.
On another note, thank you to my readers for the successful run on BookBub with the free giveaways of The Price of Innocence. I’m grateful for the new followers of my Legacy saga from Books 1-4.
Additionally, my second short-story Christmas novelette has been released this past week — a Christmas Mission (Two Sisters Determined to Heal the Past). It’s available for download on all major retailers.
Cheers during the holidays,
