I’m starting a new project today. It’s the last in my Medieval series, The ChristKeepers. And its Simon’s story. Who knew he was going to be the most damaged of the brothers? And who knew he was also going to be the most complex? At the moment I’m plotting the novel. I’ve set the backstory, and the characters with all their peculiar strengths and flaws. I’m kind of sad to close out this particular series. It’s been a real favorite of mine. But I want to flesh out my Savannah based contemporary series and there’s another Abbaddon’s Swordbook in the pipeline too, so I need to have The ChristKeeperscome to a close. *sigh* It’s really hard to walk away from Titus and his brothers/uncles.
I’m still sporadically working on my non-fiction book, Beyond Blessed. It’s a sort of personal testimony/ household tips kind of thing I’ve had a lot of fun with. It’ll most likely be finished some time in the new year and published in its turn after that time.
I promised an image of our new home, and this is a shot my dear husband took the other evening from the upper deck. That’s our neighbor’s pier. We don’t have one and probably won’t build one. We’re learning the quirks of our old beach house. It creaks in the wind and the wood floors aren’t perfectly level, but we love it. We prayed in every room for God’s blessing and His protection when we moved in a month ago. This place is truly a blessing and a dream come true for us. We never thought we’d get the chance to be on the gulf, but God had other plans. I can’t tell you just how thankful we are.
Back to shop talk- as I proceed on the new Medieval, I’ll try to keep you informed and put out the odd image when I can. Hope your life is great right now, and pray you’re as happy and contented as am I. LNF, Grace
I just want to take this opportunity to thank all the good folks who’ve read Magpie’s Masqueand taken the time to review it on Amazon. Your efforts have helped it stay on the Best-Seller list in its category since it was published!
I’m hard at work beginning the sequel to my Inspirational Regency, The Last Rose Pearl. This new book, The Broken Promise, is the love story of Jessamine St. John [Dylan St. John’s baby sister] and the handsome pirate who was introduced in the epilogue of TLRP.
The book is outlined and researched. I’ll be making a field trip for this one. The site of a Creek Indian massacre of American settlers featured in this novel is only about an hour away from where I live. My hubs and I will be going there one Saturday soon so I can take pictures and plot how the action sequences of the actual massacre will unfold.
As I was doing my research for this novel, I found out one of my maternal ancestors was actually the commander of the fort that was attached by the Indians. I found that very interesting and more than a little unsettling as this particular character is a villain, not only in my novel but in historical fact.
The Last Broken Promisewill be available for pre-order soon. It will be published in the fall.
Thanks again for making Magpie such a success! LNF, Grace
