The New Project Continues

I mentioned in November that I had started on a new project and I am so excited to say that the first draft is done. Many days of sitting at the desk and writing on the computer as the ideas came and then other days when I hated to even look at my computer where the new project waited for my return.
For the past few years I’ve been writing and editing my previous work but now it is finished as well as it can be and has been put on the shelf as I tackle another project entirley. And this one is different from my YA(Project 1).
Project 2 is for an adult audience and is centred with murder, so much murder and mystery.
It has been fun writing this darker story and I’ve enjoyed it writing it, even if some days I just starred blankly at the blank document. Sometimes it feels that that empty document is laughing at my lack of creative mind. Don’t you think?
As of today I’ve began the stage of editing and am excited to get back to this story and go hammering and chopping on the manuscript to make the story as good as it can be. Project 2 get ready to meet the red pen.
Edit, edit, edit!

Book 22: Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn

Book 22 to Christmas: Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn

Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn

Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn

The first book in the Lady Julia Grey series by Deanna Raybourn, Silent in the Grave, begins the story with “To say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband’s dead body is not entirely accurate. Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor,” and from here we dive into a world of dark mystery and murder with the swarthy, inscrutable private investigator Nicholas Brisbanen who informs Lady Julia that her husband’s death may not have been due to natural causes. Lady Julia finds herself thrust into surroundings she could never have imagined, from the elegant home of a renowned courtesan, to a volatile boxing match in a gypsy camp, determined to bring her husband’s murderer to justice. Only when the truth begins to emerge, it seems there was a great deal Julia did not know about her husband.
With smartly and enigmatic characters, especially the eccentric relations of Lady Julia and the charming dark enigmatic Brisbane, whom Lady Julia may find herself become rather attached to, this book is perfect mystery to read this Christmas holidays. A wholly original mystery set in upper-class Victorian England; it combines a plot full of mystery and secrets with a romance that would leave you wanting to read more of Lady Julia and Nicholas Brisbane in the sequel, Silent in the Sanctuary.
