I was over at the Regency Reflections blog talking a bit about my latest Regency knitting project, “Shell Pattern Manchettes” and also a little historical tidbit about knitting in the Regency and Georgian era.
Beth's new book just hit the shelves! To celebrate the release of Backfire (Mountain Cove) Suspense Sisters had a full week last week hearing from Beth about her book and running a giveaway. Here's the back cover blurb: NOWHERE LEFT TO HIDE Tracy Murray had thought she'd be safe disappearing in the wilds of Alaska after her testimony put away a gang leader. But the gang symbol tattooed on an attacker's arm means the clock has run out. She's been found—and she knows the killers won't let her escape alive again. She can't fight an entire gang alone—she needs help. But when she finds herself relying on widowed firefighter David Warren, a new struggle emerges. Fleeing Alaska and cutting all ties could be the only way to survive…but it would mean leaving her heart behind. Mountain Cove: In the Alaskan wilderness, love and danger collide Be sure to visit Suspense Sisters for all the posts last week: Giveaway of BACKFIRE Excerpt of BACKFIRE A message
I’m currently working on two projects, one a Regency novel and another a sort-of dystopian/near future series that I’ve felt God laying on my heart to write. The problem with the dystopian is that I have too many ideas! I wanted to do the third Protection for Hire series book as the start of my near-future world, but suddenly I had six or eight new characters appear in my head, each with their own stories. I’ve been writing my ideas down as I get them, but now I feel like I’ve been dissing poor Tessa and Charles because the other stories seem more interesting to me right now. I guess I’ll continue with my plan: to write the third Protection for Hire book as planned, and table these other characters’ stories. Or maybe I’ll introduce a couple of them in Tessa and Charles’s book? It’s actually been rather interesting to subtly alter Tessa’s old story world to mesh with this new dystopian world idea that God gave to me.
