Now on sale for $0.99 at Amazon for one month:…/dp/B08PMP8366/ref=sr_1_1… England, 1741. Skulduggery, peril and romance among scholars, lawyers, and other gentlemen of limited means…and the occasional moneylender. It’s also supposed to be on sale at Nook and iBooks. No bodices are ripped in my books; they aren’t steamy. There is some “language” as my characters get into situations where “Zounds!” is not adequate.

Sometimes I get tired of writing about dukes and earls.

Let’s pass over the last couple of months of 2020 and the first month of 2021. Now that we’ve recovered from those, my latest historical romance is coming out tomorrow, February 3, 2021.

I can’t believe October is almost over. Where did it go? Into that black hole that part of my summer wardrobe went last spring, probably. I’ve finished the galley proof for Portia and am almost done with A Westminster Wedding (I hope). Have started to outline the next book, By Sword and Fan, using some ideas from Fast Draft Your Manuscript and Get It Done Now (Write for Success, Book 1) by Joan Bouza Koster (a/k/a Zara West, author of The Skin Quartet). I recommend it to anyone who wants to write fiction or non-fiction faster and more efficiently.

Halfway through the second edits on Portia and the Merchant of London. My current work-in-progress, tentatively entitled A Westminster Wedding, is about 15,000 words from being done. I just decided to switch two major events near the end, which has magically opened new vistas of conflict and complication.
