After plotting out the whole of my next story, I am currently typing chapter seven of what will be a long book. This is the portion of the story I LOVE to write. For the first six chapters there was a massive misunderstanding between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. Several times writing it made me chuckle. From this point on (unless the muse hijacks me again) our dear couple will work together to solve a mystery. Yes, a mystery element, which is something very new for me. As they gather clues they will fall madly in love, I guarantee it. I promise!
My goal is to keep my nose to the grindstone. As usual, my daughter (Jennifer Joy) and my friend (Nicole Clarkston) are pushing. I will confess that both of these ladies are loveliness personified. Yet, when they want to know the rest of the story they can be fierce.
For inspiration, my cover designer has provided me with a stunning design for this story. I hope I can do it justice. What do you think? I think it is lovely. Sigh! I set the image over a background of the moon since much of this tale is still up in the air and very much in my imagination. Hopefully, the Elizabeth on the cover will hit the ground soon.
