I am sitting in the Tampa airport at 5:30 a.m. Surely there is something twisted about this picture. :-/ The sun’s not even up yet, so why am I? Oh, that’s right. I’m speaking at a school in West Palm Beach this morning–the King’s Academy.
Interesting news! Waterbrook has decided to re-release and freshen the Heirs of Cahira O’Connor series, and they’ll now be available in value-priced (translation: inexpensive) editions. I love the new cover of the first book (see photo). So if you haven’t read these tales of the red-haired, white-streaked women who dared to break the mold, here’s your chance! The first one, The Silver Sword, is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
I don’t remember too much about the writing of Brothers, except that I was conscious of adding a bit more romance. This is because historical romance was “hot” at the time, and I was trying to make my book fit in with the pack, so to speak. So BROTHERS is the story of Joseph, true, but it is also a love story between an angry man and a wounded woman.
Tomorrow: the editing
BTW, speaking of editing, have you heard that Britain has just decided to drop all apostrophes from highway signs? How can they do that? I predict a stealthy group of apostrophe replacers, people armed with thin paint brushes who go throughout the United Kingdom, correcting the King’s English. Then again, maybe not.
