Happy New Year!!

I wanted to wish everyone a Very Happy New year. I had an excellent week off with the family, during which time I completed my next (and hopefully last?) set of edits for Slurry.  If all goes well, it will go into typesetting next week for publication in September. My little book! I'm so proud.

I also had a great brainstorming session yesterday on my next book, Longbourne & Pemberley Go to War. You know that title will be changed. I like to amuse myself by thinking about what it might get changed too: Sir Fitzwilliam Darcy, Knight, or maybe or Mr. Darcy goes to War (which would be so wrong) or Fitzwilliam Darcy: Lizzy's boy-toy?
So many possibilities.

There are not many advantages to getting up at 5:45 each morning to get my high school students-sons up. Not many at all. But this morning I got to enjoy one, shining brightly in the South-East, I spied Venus this morning. I found it inspirational.

Have a great week, my friends!

    Really looking forward to Slurry and LPGTW in print form.
    Memories!-- of getting both my sons up to get their paper routes done and on the bus by 7:10. Saw many a sunrise. Enjoy it, the time does fly by.
