We are stepping back into the early Eighties for today’s musical selection, which someone has used to create a great period drama video with loads of dramas represented. There is a”story” reason I selected this song today. However, before I get to that reason, let me give you an update on a couple of upcoming books.

- Becoming Entangled:
I have gotten the files uploaded to various digital retailers and one by one, they are putting the book on preorder as I am working on creating the print copy. Release day is scheduled for November 28, 2017. Yes, I did decide to push the date out instead of trying to rush to keep my original date.
One of the things I had to do this week to get this ready was finish writing the “blurb,” aka the book description. Here is how that turned out:
Can she scheme her way out of one betrothal and into another?
Anne de Bourgh wishes to dance until she is dizzy, walk until she is tired, and marry a particular gentleman who causes her heart to skitter and skip and flutter. There is, however, one thing that stands between Anne and her aspirations — her mother.
Nevertheless, when a young lady is determined, things such as a mother’s restraints and a long-standing betrothal are merely impediments to be circumvented.
Practical and cautious, Alistair Pratt is smitten with Anne and has been patiently biding his time until he can make his intentions known. However, with his mother’s desire to see him married increasing, Alistair, when presented with a scandalous plan, throws caution to the wind to secure his love.
But, the course of true love never did run smooth.
When a gentleman with a grudge discovers the lover’s plans, things become tangled and twisted. Will a love that was meant to be find its happy conclusion, or will it end up as only a tale of what could have been?
One more thing about Becoming Entangled — It will be featured in my Austen Authors post this Tuesday (as in tomorrow). I have created some graphics about some of the research I did for this project, and I am including an excerpt and a giveaway with my post.
- Two Days before Christmas: I have reached “the end” of the first draft and have begun working my way through it checking the story and catching a few typos and errors along the way before I send it to my story editor and then start the real detailed editing work. I am still hopeful that this book will be out by December 19th. It’s going to be a busy month!
And that brings me to One Winter’s Eve, the story that has slipped into my writing block of time which was left open by the completion of Two Days before Christmas (TDBC). TDBC hinted at a sequel as I was writing it, and I have decided to explore that idea and see where it takes me. So far, it looks like I have a fight or is that battle on my hands. 😉 Do you see the song title connection? If not, I am pretty sure you will by the end of the last paragraph of this —
