It's a kind of mix between excitement and being down in the dumps... mainly because with the story told, it's time to say goodbye to these characters who've inhabited your mind for a period of time.
Right now, I'm in the space of saying goodbye to not one but two series (more on that later on in the year though!)
I started Miss Elspeth back in 2015 while I was trying to get my head back into writing ... After hubs accident, I needed time to get my mojo back.
Try something differnt I thought. Let me tell youi I have so much respect for Historical authors. While with Science Fiction, when I'm writing something I tend to focus on a couple of major concepts, beef them up and learn everything possible then use them to their best advantage. With Historical, there is so much more. The clothing, the mannerisms and speech patterns. The geography and social mores.
I wrote Isabelle because I always planned to - it was after all a Duology, but also because while she was there in the background of Elspeth, she had a really strong presence in my mind.
I knew where the book would take place. I knew a little about the hero, but the rest? She was determined to make me work for all of it!
But anyway, Isabelle's story is now written and the great thing is, not only is it available in EBook but also print.
Please take a moment to check it out. For the next few days, you can grab the e-version for 99 cents!
