If you follow me on Facebook, by now you’ve heard that I have another novel contracted to be released September 2017!
I am so excited about this book, The Forgotten Girl. It is very different from my regency writings. This new novel is set in the early 1900s and follows a young girl named Stella as she immigrates to the United States from Russian-ruled Poland. It’s a story of strength, survival, and hope. Of course I had to add a bit of romance in it, but this book is primarily Stella’s story and not necessarily focused on the romance. The Forgotten Girl was an emotional journey to write, and I am hoping that my readers will enjoy the ride as well!
Now that my novella is off to the printers and my new novel has found a home with my editors, I find I finally have time to imagine something new. Creating a new story and characters is my favorite part about writing. Some authors love to edit. I admire that. Most of writing is editing after all. But I crave the creation process. I absolutely love it. So, for the next few months I will be in creation paradise– creating a new world, characters, plots and so on.
In the meantime, have you read Mischief and Manors by Ashtyn Newbold? Or To Suit a Suitor by Paula Kremser? I absolutely loved these books! I can’t wait to read Mandi Ellsworth’s Uneasy Fortunes, too, especially after reading her novella. It was such a fun read! It’s nice to relax and read a story every once in a while. It’s so refreshing, and it inspires my sometimes burned-out-writer’s soul.
