It’s the end of February, and I think we all could use a lift to get us through this last month of winter. Read on to the end to find out what I have for you.
But in the meantime…
What I’m Writing
As I revise Flicker of the Flame (the sequel to Flight of the Spark), I’m doing more rewriting and less editing. But I think the story is so much better with these changes. I’m almost a quarter of the way, so publication by the end of these year is still possible.
I’m also doing some revisions to Game of Lies, the prequel novella. Stay tuned…I’ll have a cover reveal soon!
On top of that, I’m working on two unrelated short stories. And in the process, I’m making myself crazy hopping from the world of Tlefas to other fantasy realms.
What I’m Reading
The Watchmaker’s Daughter
“There were several reasons why I fell in love with Eddie Hardacre, but seeing a painter put the finishing touches to “E. HARDACRE, WATCHMAKER” on the shop front that had been in my family’s hands for over a century, I couldn’t remember any of them.”
From that opening line, The Watchmaker’s Daughter lured me in and kept me turning the pages. India’s father has died, after willing his shop to her fiancé, as women couldn’t join the watchmaker’s guild in nineteenth century London. Once the fiancé has control of the business, he breaks the engagement and turns India out. With no other options, she accepts a position helping a mysterious American locate a particular watchmaker. Between her new employer’s quirky friends, multiple secrets and a touch of romance, this historical fantasy kept my attention from the start.
I’d never heard of the Farseer Trilogy until I came across it on a list of the best fantasy series. So I thought I’d give it a try. The hero, Fitz, is just one of the memorable characters. The worldbuilding is superb, and I gladly immersed myself in the story.
