I had a break this month. I had planned to take some time off from writing, but here we are again.
I went to the RNA annual conference this month, and met up with writer friends. It was so nice to see Sheila Riley and Lizzie Lane again, and to find new friends. I did a talk on how to do backups, because so many writers tend to use unsuitable or unsafe methods. After spending hundreds of hours writing a masterpiece, to leave one copy to be eaten by a computer, or destroyed in a hard drive meltdown seems a bit of a shame.
And then I was talking to someone in the dinner queue about my latest idea, and she asked to see the book! Not that I've written it yet!
Then I had a short break with my husband for a few days. We've had a difficult year, so we went to Sotheby's, to the exhibition of Freddie Mercury's posessions before they go up for sale. That sheet of paper above is part of it. The lyrics to Killer Queen, as written by Freddie. Now there's writing!
The exhibition revealed that he changed the title of the song Mongolian Rhapsody to the one we all know - Bohemian Rhapsody.
What a man he was!
Dressing The Georgians
And I went to the exhibition Dressing The Georgians at Buckingham Palace. They were Changing The Guard, so it took me a good half hour to get across to the Queen's Gallery. But there I saw the wedding gown of Princess Charlotte. The poor lady lived barely a year after she wore her lovely gown.
As for writing? I'm planning a new series. I haven't been so excited about a series for ages. But I don't want to say too much, not yet! But as a clue - think Richard and Rose!
My latest Release - The Talk Of The Town.
Once Bianca was the talk of the town. Now all she wants is a quiet life. Until murder and mayhem erupt around her - again.
When Bianca, Duchess of Whiston is invited to a house party at Stonyhurst, she is looking to restore her reputation. But it doesn't work out that way. The marquess's heir, Mr. Alexander Fraser, draws her as no other man has, not even her late husband.
Events escalate, until Bianca finds herself in the middle of a scandal she may never recover from.
Alex's father turned his back on his aristocratic heritage. He made a name for himself in the new, exciting world of industrial enterprise. He was so successful that his son came to be called the Midas of The North. But when the Marquess of Stonyhurst's three heirs die in battle, Alex becomes the heir, despite his desire not to be so.
Until he meets Bianca. Then he's not so sure about anything any longer, except that he wants her.
