Happy Saturday, lovely visitors!
I am thrilled to have finished the first draft of the third book in my Victorian series with eKensington this week. This is Monica's story, who was a secondary character in The Temptation of Laura. Monica works at Bath's Theatre Royal and as soon as she appeared in "Laura" I knew I wanted to write her story––luckily for me, my editor suggested it to me before I could him!
This book is likely to be my longest yet at around 90,000 words but it also the book I have written the fastest. I usually hit a terrible brick wall around the 40,000 word mark but this book didn't stump me until the very end at around 75,000. The reason? One of the secondary characters revealed something I had no idea about, lol! I would say from idea to first draft, this book took me a little over four months. A record :)
Have a great weekend,
