I currently have two works in progress! The nearest to completion is the Pride and Prejudice variation These Dreams. This will be a full- length novel at approximately 180,000 words and around 600 pages. I cringe every time I look at those numbers! The plot is layered and twisting, and my hope is that those looking for a unique story will enjoy it.
Janet Taylor already has an absolutely stunning cover completed for it, and as always, the cover weaves together several key elements from the story with breathtaking artistry. I absolutely cannot wait to unveil it, but unfortunately I must suffer just a little longer!
The second story I have in progress is Nowhere But North, a North & South variation. This will also be a full-length novel, but mercifully it should be completed at around 400 pages. I began this book in July of 2016, and it was in part inspired by the blog tour for its predecessor, Northern Rain. Unfortunately, its progress was stalled by two house moves in a six month period, and derailed entirely when The Muse insisted on finishing These Dreams first. The good news for N&S fans is that These Dreams is in the homestretch, and Nowhere But North has been burning a hole in my brain.
I have never attempted a story like this, because it incorporates flashbacks from John and Margaret’s past into the present story line, and the reader sees how their history affects their future. As with TD, my dear friend Janet Taylor is already working on the cover, and I cannot wait to see it completed.
What is in store after these two? Well, I think I will be in the mood for a light comedy after these hefty tales!
