Let it be known that in the first week of April 2013, the first novel I ever wrote was contracted to be published from Lyrical Press.
It’s a medieval romance, set during the Norman Conquest of England, between a knight seeking his place in the world and noblewoman struggling to hold on to all she holds dear.
This was the first book I ever got to “The End” on.
This was the first book I ever workshopped, queried, stayed up late and wished so hard it see the light of day. And now it will. In roughly a year from now.
I spent years researching and revising and refining my craft with this book. I owe it a lot, and now I hope to do it justice. Here, through this blog. I’ll share with you my process (it took ages), my worldbuilding (always a work in progress), and my experiences as a soon-to-be-published author (both nervewracking and educational). I hope you’ll join me.
