Greetings from Lake Placid, Florida, where winter has come and gone – and we’ve had our first ninety degree day in 2016, so it seems that it’s very close to summer again.
Welcome! If this is your first visit, or if you stop by often, you are welcome here. I’ve worked on some of the pages, and I have new pages going up soon, so don’t miss out.
There’s lots of news, so let’s get started.
I’d like to take a moment to update everyone on my cancer battle. I was diagnosed early this year with an aggressive form of breast cancer that’s quite rare in my age group. I started chemo in mid-March. There’s every reason to be optimistic, and I hope to it all behind me before this year is done.
It’s amazing the progress that has occurred in cancer treatments, including suppressing the dreaded chemo side effects. After some initial fatigue, and missing a few blog post deadlines, I’m doing well – and just in time, because ….
The BIG news is – it’s almost time!
In my last message here, I revealed that Logan’s Time was out for editing. Since then, it’s been back to me for rework, out to my wonderful beta readers, reworked some more (to produce a slimmer, trimmer book), and is now being edited again. When it returns this time, I’ll put the finishing touches on it, and send it on to the publisher. I don’t have an exact publication date, but it will be soon, possibly early May.
Logan’s Time is a spinoff within my TIME Series. The first book of the series, Janelle’s Time establishes the family of Richard and Janelle Grayson. Moria’s Time and Adelle’s Time are sequels, each about one of Richard and Janelle’s twin daughters. Logan’s Time is about the life and loves of Logan Conor, the Scots Duke of Muileach, a long-time friend of Richard Grayson.
Work continues on the Logan’s Time book trailer. Right now, I’m writing the script. Bob Atkinson, a native Scots Highlander, and author of two novels about the Jacobite Rebellion, The Last Sunset, and Red Sky in the Morning, will be doing the narration.
I’m very excited about this book for many reasons. So much so, I’m even putting my sewing skills to work. I’ve ordered and received material from Scotland from which I’ll be making an skirt to wear to author events (also in the works). While the outfit will not be an actual kilt, it will be similar, fitting nicely into the theme of the book.
Watch for upcoming blog posts about Logan’s Time, including the cover reveal on 4-18-2016, information about and photos of the very real site of the fictitious Muileach Castle, excerpts from the book, and more.
That’s about it for now. See you next time.
